Hey, I'm looking for some advice. I've been using TukUI for a while now, and I really like it, but I wanted to try something different. When I tried making my own UI before it ended up being pretty cluttered, and was hoping for some advice on how to fix that. I'd also like to mention that my monitor has a resolution of only 1024x768. I want a UI that could work for multiple classes and roles. Any advice would be appreciated, or just a helpful point towards a forum or something.

To be honest I'd still recommend you rolling your own as you have a very small monitor, I found a great video guide here that helps with making an ui from scratch. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL761D808689FB3840&feature=plcp Otherwise nUI maybe, if you nix the action bars and reduce the height of the part that's on the bottom of your screen.A couple of good ways to reduce UI clutter, whether if editing your own or if making one from scratch is to set up addons so they only display what you need to know, and nothing else, for an example if i raid as DPS i don't need to have DBM tell me that tank damaging ability X has N number of stacks on the tank, while if healing or tanking I can have a different profile that shows that. Another way to reduce screen space used is to play having all your combat abilities on hidden action bars, and keybound, and use similar keybinds on all characters. I for an example only have 2 small (6 buttons) action bars, and those are only for my mount, hearthstone and targetting macros. Yet another way could be to set your map to autohide while in combat, to free up even more space,
