Submit your UI to Reader UI of the Week


World of Warcraft's user interface is one of the most awesome features that the game includes. Where else in MMO-land can you find UIs as diverse, creative, and different than those of all of your peers and community pals? Here on WoW Insider, we have a little column where your work gets shown off and discussed amongst our own little community, and we want your submissions. The final patch of Cataclysm is coming soon, and as the most recent expansion winds to an end, our user interfaces are settling in to the new changes that the sundering brought. I want to see your Cataclysm UIs.

We even love to help players with their UI design woes, discussing ways to change or adjust your UI to get it to look a little bit cleaner, a little bit smoother, or just plain nicer. If you're going to send in a call for help, please be as descriptive as possible -- it's hard to solve a problem that isn't exactly there.

Submit your user interface to Reader UI of the Week by emailing, coincidentally, Here are some tips to remember and information to include when you are submitting your UI or call for help:

  • Include "Reader UI of the Week" in the subject of your email. If it's not there, your email might not get through.
  • Pictures are good, and the bigger the better.
  • You don't have to write a novel, but definitely write enough that readers get a sense of why you did what you did. What are your biggest priorities when putting together your UI?
  • Did I mention pictures are awesome?
  • If you are submitting a user interface that is modified off of an existing UI compilation, tell me what you changed and what was important about those changes. Anyone can go and just pick up a premade compilation.
Again, submit your user interfaces to and show off your work. Novices and veterans are all welcome because, after all, we can all learn a thing or two about checking out what's under the hood from our friends.
