Back to the topic:
I liked the suggestion earlier about fully supporting the mod community. There are a lot of things that I would like to do, specifically with the UI, that not only do I think the people in general don't agree with, but that I also think would be a waste of the UI teams resources. If the mod community is given the tools to adjust things easier from the client side that would be awesome. I personally have no need for the mini map, the new menu icons in the bottom right corner, HP/MP bar when I'm just walking around, experience bar constantly on screen, and even the chat log.
There's a Skyrim mod called Immersive UI that changes what is shown on screen based on the context of their usage. If you aren't using them then they aren't there and you can press certain buttons to bring them up if you need to access them in a hurry. I would love to do a similar thing with XIV's UI, but I can totally see how a lot of players would be frustrated with that and how each separate UI element having differing levels of opacity or toggleability could be considered low priority on the UI teams list of things to do.
