Reader UI of the Week: February 7 to 13

Paul Sherrard

Once again time for another Reader UI of the Week. It's another 2-screen bonanza, with a completely different setup than last week's.

Sheltern Sheltem (EDIT: with an M, curse my old eyes), who you may remember won our art contest a short time ago, writes:

My user interface is a complex mass of crap-on-the-screen-at-one-time. I use Bongos for the actionbars, menu bar, and the xp/fps bar, MetaHUD for, well, the HUD, CTBuffMod for buffs, Natur EnemyCastBar(not pictured) for debuff timers(it's on the left hand side of the screen, near the middle), MonkeyQuests for a replacement quest log, plus AlphaMap for a map and CTViewport to split my interface across my two 19-inch screens. The third, very empty chat window is for loot-related information only, a solution I devised when everyone in a Zul'Gurub run many moons ago decided to start rolling on bijous during combat.

Additional not pictured mods include Grid, Perl Classic User Frames, Vendetta boss mods, Scrolling Combat Text, EquipCompare and a bunch of other little one-fix mods I've probably forgotten about. The font is ClearFont, which is MUCH easier to read(especially for reading mail) than Blizzard's own font selection.

So let us know what you think of Sheltern Sheltem's UI in the comments below, and be sure to send your own UI masterpiece to to be featured in a future installment! Please include a couple of screenshots, a list of your mods, and a bit about why you like your UI set up the way you do.
