The effects on ranged weapons for bounty hunter/trooper tends to annoy me, they completely envelop and hide the weapons. Especially now that the "stances" are gone anyway, I see little reason for them to even exist. The various effects for assassin/shadow on their lightsabers look terrible too. I suppose one could (and PvPers certainly would) argue that these visual cues can be important for opponents, so maybe a toggle to just remove them for the individual user would be reasonable.
What you get from a referral link: a box of junk and one single server transfer token.

What the other person gets: 500 cartel coins, 100 more each month you stay subscribed, a speeder bike and a droid vanity pet.

Oh God, that one effect for Infiltration Shadow where your hands glow and stuff, and then you go into stealth, and your hands *still* glow!

Well, if that would stop my toons from glowing like christmas trees in any fight that would do fine. Just throwing the suggestion out there. I'm sure I can't be the only person who doesn't like the effects.

GOD YES! The Merc one where your pistols just disappear beneath the glow ticks me off sooooooo hard. "What's that you say? You spent millions on awesome looking blasters so you could see your toon using them? Ok then lets totally hide them behind a crappy glowy effect!!" smh

I could see the effects being useful to have for PVPers and all but I'm sure there'd be a way to have it so it's on a player by player basis. Like if you turn the effects off they are off for YOU and nobody else. Even other players you meet in game you will be able to see their effects but not yours, and similarly they could still see your effects on their screen no matter what.

We're trying to bring attention to this issue so that maybe the Devs will actually do something about it. The more people we can get on board the better. You can check out the suggestion post HERE. All help is appreciated!

One very big thing you are overlooking - maybe most active players don't mind the effects and spending time trying change things would just take time away from bug-fixing and creating new content.

While there is probably some truth to this, something to keep in mind is this would be a very simple change to make.

This is a client only thing, there doesn't even need to be any server side interaction or anything, as it would only be hidden/shown for your eyes only.

If BW allow client modding this likely would have been done long ago.
