    Fancy addons: ButtonFacade (Caith), nibMicroMenu, SatrinaBuffFrame, TipTac, dMinimap

    I think most addons can be configured to show them from bottom to top, i used forte before and you could do a lot of config in there such as you can have multiple bars depending on if its debuff cds or buffs and you could config them in a lot of other ways so look thru that addon.

    LOL, I had no idea how busy my UI got and how much shit I never even notice is going on until I took this screenshot! So many bars! It should look a lot cleaner once I dump Scorchio, some of the truly unused Need To Know bars, and finally cut my last ties with MSBT. Maybe I'll even come back and post an update, and I'm open to suggestions on ways to improve what I'm working with!

    With that much "shit" going on at the same time i would suggest you to start from scratch and start with one addon and finish that, then take the next one and so on until you got all that you need because that thing is very cluttered :P

    Duplication of information is a major problem there.
    Buffs on your player frame, and up in the corner where only one is needed.
    It looks like you have 4 or more different addons displaying the duration of your debuffs on the targets, and your cooldowns.
    Some degree of redundancy where information is hard to miss can be a good thing, but that is excessive.
    Decide what you can read easier, numbers on icons, or bars and base your display around that.
    You seem to have party frames visible in raid, which arent really necessary either.
    Conflicting addons trying to do the same thing with both Minimap Button Bar and Minimap Button Frame both trying to handle minimap button management, where only one will do just fine.
    A well set up raid frame will replace decursive, or should you not on that character need the information that a raid from provides then decursive may be sufficient on its own.
    Bag and Micro Menu (character, talents etc) don't need to be visible all the time, and should be on mouseover only.
    MSBT since you seem to have reduced it largely to buff annoucements is rather pointless so I do agree with getting rid of that or at least saving it for something not easily covered by another addon.
    What I would assume to be your target of target frame also showing buffs which is totally pointless.
    Mario style graphics are all well and good if they serve a real pupose, though icons or bars could be more appropriate for something with a duration or cooldown or something like the ring in the middle being rather more subtle and where you should be looking instead of over to the side.

    STUF Unitframes: 2D pictures for either character and target. They serve as health bar as well. 33% opacity. Really dislike animated frames, so went for the static ones. STUF also tracks my own debuffs on target (Rake, Rip etc) with timer bars.
    Target frame shows (coloured) combo points, as well as health%.

    Bartender w/ ButtonFacade: Skinned it with Renaitre. Goes for the buffs as well.

    Aura Frames:
    3 different frames:
    - Buffs (ye olde regular buffs) next to minimap
    - Short duration self buffs (think Tiger's Fury, Savage Roar, Berserk or Slice and Dice) above character frame
    - Debuff Groups for target, next to target frame. This tracks the duration of any +Bleed debuff (e.g. Mangle/Trauma/Hemorrhage), -Armour debuff and -Healing debuff. May look redundant in the current screenshots, but very useful in PvP or Raid situations.

    bMinimap: Simple enough, ye olde minimap addon

    Lite Stats and Lite Panels: Small overview below minimap with friends/gold/bagslots etc. Responsible for FPS etc. as well.

    Coolline: Cooldown tracker

    Mik's Scrolling Battle Text: Need to move the damage frame a bit, it's covering the target frame.

    Chatter: Chat mod

    Kui Platenames: Missing as I probably hit the hotkey by mistake. That or it reset because of patch. At any rate, nice nifty fancy nameplates, class coloured. Shows health% and combo points as well, which may or may not be useful.

    nib's Micromenu: Normally have it hidden, but I kinda like this version. Goes well with the FPS etc in the upper right corner

    Viewporter: The, you guessed it, view port.

    Additional mods: TinyRaidhider (hides Blizzard's raid frames), TipTop (tooltip mod), Deadly Boss Mods (basically only use it for PvP timers), sThreatmeter2




    Party / Raid frames -> still STUF and oUF Freedbgrid. Haven't set up Freedbgrid completely to my satisfaction yet, but quite pleased with the basic form of it.

    Target frame shows Target's Target and TTT as well.

    First: it's probably done with STUF or shadowed unit frames. Sorry.

    Anyway, the addon used doesn't change anything. You need his addon code or do it by yourself and replicate it.

    No clue. I use Noscript and imageshack is working just fine for me. Give me an alternative and I'll upload it there.

    BTW, now that the links work, comments are more than welcome.

    Can't decide what your UI reminds me of, Coldkil. Either Led++ or Ishtara.

    And it all started with tukui! XD

    Some pointers:
    - configure better msbt; you don't need all the events activated, it's just spammy; also pixelfont at incorrect size and no outline looks ugly
    - too much different fonts through your ui; if you use pixelfonts, monochromeoutline them all! and set shadow offset to 0
    - blizzard auras are overlapping a little with your timers/trackers. fix it.

    Combo Points Full - uncheck the box or adjust as necessary.
