Here's a comparison of the new cooldown display options on youtube, especially for those of you who can't log in yet... damn you work/school!

I think I like option 3 and 1 without GCD flash. What are you guys picking?

Show ready flash ON.
Show GCD ready flash OFF.
Show cooldown text ON.

Cooldown style 4 (Dark with no overlay).
GCD style 4 (Dark with no overlay).

Abilities on cooldown are darkened but with no overlay so i can see if i have the resources to use the ability when it comes off cooldown.

Also GCD ready flash off so the bar isnt flashing and blinding me every 1.5secs, but ready flash on so i notice at a glance when an ability finishes cooldown.

Practically how i had my WoW actionbars.

What is my preference? An open interface so I don't have be stuck with just one or two options but can create my own. But that is asking too much...

Folks that say mods would ruin the game are probably right. The development team is pretty weak. Heck, /roll wasn't built into the Hero engine and is beyond the skill set of the development team to code. If there was an open interface the people writing the mods would run circles around the TOR developers.
Why no dual spec? Are dailies only for the DPS classes?
Why do folks not want addons because "they play the game for you", yet don't say a thing about companions.

They'll never please everyone with UI stuff. Some people are minimalist, some like stuff everywhere. Some want their action bars on the side or running vertically or neon colored or white. No reason they shouldn't open the game up to at least UI mods.

There is nothing wrong with it. Youtube has been using the .be domain for a year now, I want to say. It even some up that way when you click on share now.
