Here is mine, I was hoping to get some advice or the answers to a couple questions?
I happen to be on my 7..something? Druid but the UI is about the same for all of my classes excluding things like a pet bar and what not.
Any suggestions in general?
1. I need a good tracker for Burning Embers (I don't play affliction and just use Demo to solo so I don't really care about knowing the exact number of my Demonic Fury) I tried using WeakAuras but that ish is COMPLICATED! Basically anything graphical that is easy to see at a glance.
2. I'd love an addon that is maybe one button that flashes a spell icon on a proc, examples would be something that easily and graphically tells me when I have 5 stacks of whatever makes the Shaman lightning bolt instant cast, or 5 stacks of Unholy Infusion, or when Mangle procs free cast/no cooldown for my Druid. I don't need something huge, something as small as a single image of the spell icon would be informative enough for me.
3. If you can tell I've changed the health bars of ElvUI to be a green because seeing the black/green/yellow/orange/red became confusing but what I'd like to do is change all of the resource colors (which I know how to do) but I need suggestions on colors that maybe are a higher contrast like a Red for rage instead of the soft brick color, or Purple for Demonic Fury instead of the like lilac color, Blue for Mana, Robins Egg Blue for Runic Power, Yellow for Energy, Orange for Focus (I never liked the salmon) so I'm looking for values I can use that are standard with the game, I don't know how to find out the exact colors the game uses.
4. With ElvUI how do I make it not gray out party frames that are out of range? I'm ok with that in Raids but in Parties I'd rather they always be solid. I don't heal so the range info isn't relevant.
I think that's pretty much it, like I said all suggestions on things I should fix, change, add or just any addons you'd recommend I look into are welcome, I'm kind of a novice at this.
List of Addons:
ElvUI (Main UI)
Carbonite (Quest Tracker and Small Map next to minimap)
Prat (Chat Window)
Recount (Damage Meter on right side)
Milk Scrolling Battle Text (Can't see that in this shot)
Also about a dozen others that you can't see or wouldn't see.
Dear lord is there some way to shrink this? I didn't mean for it to come out huge.

I'll bring you music since the post limit is 10 characters.
You are not allowed to post any kinds of links, images or videos until you post a few times.
So I'm not doing that either, well John Butler - Ocean (Studio Version) then!
Success! Had a little "play-around" with KuiNameplates and managed to edit the font and texture.
Now all I need to do is sort out some nice looking raid frames and figure out how to change the font on my Power Aura timers. Making the transition to Weak Auras has been suggested but that could be fairly time-consuming. (I have a lot of Power Auras on a lot of characters :P)

I got A LOT of help from this video by Touchymcfeel where he goes through most of the features. He's got an entire series about UI. Try that.
Using the Tukui layout, because I suck at making stuff look nice.
Took a screenshot just now, because I don't really have any. Sitting on a new computer. Basically, only power auras, battle text font, and clcinfo are tweaked by myself.
(how in hell do i link a smaller picture, that goes enlarged in a new window when you click it?)
Here's a link.

A thumbnail would be lovely.
And what exactly are your tweaks? It looks like ElvUI with Affinitis position of Vuhdo/Grid/whateverframesthatare.
I'm a mess of unfinished thoughts
I tried to transfer the files last night onto my hubby's comp, but got frustrated with it and quit. I'm going to try again tonight because I know people want a different resolution than the one on wowinterface

I'm a mess of unfinished thoughts
if every author that made a ui (not addons) only posted unique ui's there would be hardly any, as you ask anyone thats made anything,
even Tuk that made tukui
Everyone has elements or has taken inspiration from someone else's creation
Elv, Tukui took "Alot" of inspiration from Caith ui,
it even says in the credits inspired by Caith,
and if you look through all 333 pages here, you can see many people have taken insipration from other peoples ui's this does not make them copy's as there are different they just took a good idea and tailored it to there own liking,
there both the same only difference is the design of the logo. there still based off the same thing and they are not unique yet they are both available on the shelf to buy,
100% agree with Lyn here
I'm ol' school I'm classic! I use the WoW default ui baby! I can't stand addon ui's too many buttons and icons are too small. I'm one of a kind lol
You say you agree with Lyn, but then agree with my point.
I said people shouldnt upload exact copies of other peoples UIs.
Which you seem to agree with by sighting inspiration.
My point was no wants to see the EXACT same UI posted by 100 different people.
Inspiration does not mean 100% the same.
The poster I mentioned even said their UI was graphically exactly the same, no changes.
