To everyone! Thank you for your help, I'm definitely going to work into implementing a lot of this. It's crazy to think that all the time I thought of things, I never would have considered condensing stuff to the bottom. In fact, when I was trying to shift some elements of my UI again, a lot ended up at the very top.To be quite honest, the UI I really adored was the Shadowmage one, but I don't know enough about editing to make it so that it works for me, and everything is tiny, and doesn't quite work on a non-widescreen. I do like the shapes though, and I'd like to move some things around in that shape. A viewport mod looks like an awesome thing, especially in the shape that matches the UI I'd like. I'll consider it.As much as I want a widescreen, it's not going to currently happen, and my desk is just too small. I can be jealous though.I've gone from Healbot to Grid and I did try Vuhdo, but all the options had me running the other way. It seemed like no matter how much I configured it, it never looked liked how I wanted it to look. Grid currently tells me aggro, Earth Shield, Riptide, missing health, and incoming heals on my shaman, but I would like more, especially on my other healers who have a lot more to watch for. I liked how modular Grid is, but now, I'm kinda bleh at how a very needed mod can go out with a patch and never be updated and perfect, forever. I'll look at Vuhdo again, I have a lot more time between raid days and such now.I also will definitely look into Skada and such. Trimming down addons is most welcome. A lot of these addons, I never would have considered!Maybe in about three weeks or so, I'll send in a new and improved UI.

I used to have similar problems as you. I could never bring myself to setting up vuhdo to get it to quite look the same as grid. I had someone the other day help me work through the settings by asking for a fairly good vuhdo user in trade chat. There's normally someone in there that is bored enough that will help you work through its settings. I also recently redid my UI and used KGpanels to skin it and put a nice black background under my bars and other static addons. I also condensed my UI more than normal, granted it is still a widescreen resolution but it could be fairly easy to modify it into a 4:3 resolution. It would just be a bit more crowded, but not too terrible. I would be more than willing to help you with any questions on how I set up my UI (attached a link to a fairly good screenshot that shows most of its flair in a battleground as a resto druid)http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y29/homeboy9/WoWScrnShot_080711_070332.jpgthe image is a bit small, but you can zoom in on it as well.. the only thing thats not shown well is Miks... the income and outgoing text goes up and down on the outside edges of my screen. I also have a semi transparent bar above my chat window for potions and things like that, and a bar hidden unless moused over for mounts and tradeskills near my recount
