Hehe I used to give people feedback like this earlier in the thread and it seemed like people liked it. Haven't done it in a while though (in fact I don't post much anymore) but who better to rip to pieces than the lovely Mr. Carebear <3

The font I use in my UI is expressway free.
Now for the critique, many good points I must say! Obviously the positions of elements is easily fixed so that's just a minor thing that takes a few moments to resolve.
Party frames however! I have no idea what I want to do. I did overlap the buffs on purpose so that the whole frames didn't take up so much room but I don't like them and I don't know what to do with them.
I like having the three different combat texts, I like to see what damage I'm taking and if I combine damage/healing received it'll spam to no end so I can't get a glimpse at what is hitting me. It's handy on my warrior when I tank because melee = red damage and magic = purple damage.
Here's the latest edit of my UI
- Worked quite a bit on friendly and enemy nameplates since last version (based on DocsNameplates) and I find those friendly nameplates incredibly handy as a healer!
- Switched to WeakAuras also for my castbar and added a GCD bar (based on Touchy's tank UI strings) which is surprisingly nice to perfect the timing of instant cast spells
- Added a few auras overlapping raid frames to let me know when big off-healing cooldowns are up (Ancestral Guidance, Vampiric Embrace etc.)
and I probably tweaked a few other auras/panels/things around... (had to switch to BigWigs for this fight so the DBM artwork is obviously gone ^^)
Of course looking for feedback and critique as always (yes Pixil, even from you!!)
I'd love to add a bit more info to the mana bar/mana text to have a view of mana regen vs mana consumption in the last few seconds (kind of a healer's version of the tank addon evn talked about building some time ago that would show damage taken vs healing received in the last seconds) but I still lack some LUA skill and time for it :/
Think I would get rid of the buffs and save 1 or 2 slots on the right for debuffs instead...

His UI's are linked into his signature, I believe if the UI is ready it is up to date.
Going for a slight rework for 5.2, and fixing some bugs (i'm a noob amnd made a so noobish mistake into the lock bars widget).
Anyway, here's a preview (thick borders didin't work out well, was losing the UI concept entirely).
EDIT: image has been moved, but there is a screen a few posts below.
I finally uploaded the "why my tank ui preview is garbage" video. Half an hour of a sad nerd drinking over priced liquor and bad-mouthing his video game tweaks.
That's some Oscar-worthy content right? Tonight I'll probably try to explain how I fake having an sense of aesthetic so that other people without much artistic talent can make things look nice.
