The big timers are just for "emergency" - pet dead, Nitro Boost fail, Dark Intent not up etc.
The small timers which now overlap don't do when they show up (due to not tracking stuff for the same char - it's just "Test All Auras" .
I would like to move the player and target percent up, so they would be like over the "Human 85" for target and at the same place mirrored for myself.
Feedback is very appreciated! (:
edit: Before someone points that out - most of the stuff is bound, I just click the big bar, buffs and stuff I rarely use. I just hide the hotkeys for the other bars.
Hey all. Here is my current UI. While not completely unique it is pretty much my own. Built primarily from Bartender4, KGPanels and SUF for my unit and raid frames.
While not nearly as minimalistic as some would like, you can see I am a little OCD when it comes to arranging everything at the bottom of my screen .
Criticism and feedback is most welcome!

1) I really like how you broke up the raid frames, thought that was really creative
2) Assuming you are using a chat addon, I would go into the settings and make the tabs only popup on mouseover (i believe most chat addons allow you to do that)
3) This one is just a personal preference, but as a feral druid I tend to look down at my bars a lot to check up on cooldowns, so to make this more universal, I reccomend and addon called Coolline - It displayes all your abilities that have a certain cooldown time on a handy dandy bar.
4) I would also reccomend that you move your important DBM text up to the middle of your screen (or upper middle is what I have) just to also encourgae less staring down at your bars and more raid awareness - agian, not telling how to do your job, but as a feral... I occasionally glance down and get hit square in the face by flaming balls of doom (and other things)
5) Along side your unit frame and your Target unit frames are 2 smaller vertical unitframe boxes... what exactly are they (i.e TOT, TOTOT, focus?)
6) final thing, you have a bar right above your units that says 33%.. what is that, just ooc?
Thanks, and I would really like to see this uploaded, I use different packages for my 4 different toons, and would LOVE to use yours for my DK.
This is my UI that I made today:
Basically I'm posting here for some feedback, especially on where to place the raidframes, and also I'm looking for a chatbox addon that in some elegant way can like hide the chatbox or somehow make it less dominant. The problem is I dont want the actual text area to be smaller than it is... I guess what I want is a clever way of fading out as much as possible
Edit: I sort of improved the chatbox with an addon called Chatter, though I cant get it to fade out as fast as I want. In fact I cant get it to fade out any different at all from the default chat box
Edit again: In case anyone is interested, the addons I'm using are:
Bartender (actionbars), they are faded out except the small one with consumables.
IceHUD (Energy and SnD bananas, and combo point bar)
Coolline (The cooldown line at the bottom)
TellMeWhen (the Bandit's Guile icon)

1,2 & 3)) It took me ages to find a raid unit addon that allowed you to position the groups horizontally. I even asked in the "UI ask it" thread but no response. I eventually stumbled on the option in SUF. I do have cooline on my alt which I am learning to keybind with, atm I am a clicker so look at my bars a lot anyway. Its a bad habbit but one I am finding hard to break after 2-3 years. I currently use prat for chat, I will look to hide the tabs.
4)) As you can tell I am a sucker for symmetry, but I am considering altering the positions of my DBM bars.
5)) Yes, the two small horizontal bars are Tot, TOTT & F, ToF. I originally had them above my player and target frame but felt it was too cluttered and caused a tower like effect with needtoknow monitoring my diseases and procs.. so all in all it felt too high. Here is a screen before I changed it
I am still unsure if they fit the UI (being stuck on the sides) but dont really want to stack them above my frames again. Need to try and figure something out.
6)) Heh that is Simple threat meter that I used to use but keep forgetting to turn off. I have now amended that
Thanks very much for the feedback. Not sure if I will be uploading it. Last time I tried to do that it did not work and seemed to be quite involved. I will look into it again though

Hey guys i decided to come back and play wow, As i came back i lost touch with a lot of addons and how to configure them around. I started to play a Shadow Priest so its what my ui is based around on.
Castbar with some other cooldowns: Gnosis
Dots and Procs: Forte
Cooldown Bar: Cool Line
Dynamic Dot Tracker above Cast Bar: WeakAuras [Thanks evn for your amazing import strings ]
I know the action bar isnt full at the bottom nor are the buffs/debuff frames done yet i plan on using Raven for that. My action bars will eventually disappear once i am more comfortable with my class and use my keybindings without having them out as a crutch.

Any feedback would be good. I just recently decided to care about my UI again, and this is what I came up with.
If I do decide to go through with the upload (which I hate due to the upkeep), it'll be Degausser Cataclysm v. I or something.
Anyway, on to the screenshots -
Raid combat: http://i.imgur.com/W27cD.jpg
Everything open: http://i.imgur.com/2IzIC.jpg
Idle, with a whisper: http://i.imgur.com/J1506.jpg
Edit: even though I set my console for the picture to be 10/jpeg, it still looks like crap. Any ideas as to why?
Edit 2: I figured it out. I'll upload better screenshots tomorrow after raid, but this is the gist of it. Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
