Welcome! I hope you post a lot! Addons are one of my favorite features of WoW. I enjoy getting every ounce of form and function out of my UI. Do me a favor though, don't talk about QuickAuctions. I don't need any more competition.I tried Skada for a while, and while I LOVED how it looked, I HATED how it recorded data.Over the 2 weeks I used it, Skada's stats differed from Recount's between 200 dps on some fights and 2000 (!) on others. I figured out it was caused by how Skada treats dots and toggles entering combat. I went back to Recount because, in Skada's case, I valued function over form (even if recount is a massive memory hog). I really miss the old-fashioned DamageMeters (DM) addon. The one that pinged other players for accuracy.I use Bartenders 4, and from what I hear, it's nearly similar to Dominos. I tried hiding the buttons except for mouse-over or holding Shift for a total minimalist UI, but couldn't get used to it. The idea to rotate omen and your damage meter in the same spot depending on in/out combat is clever! I'm going to do that as soon as I log on! I'm pretty desperate to squeeze as much immediately useful info as possible into every pixel of space. This is not helped by my aging monitor, I have a 17" standard aspect flat panel that tops out at 1280x1024 pixels. It's an interesting challenge, trying to get a UI that works on a smaller screen on an aging computer.
