I figured out how to make name text appear in health bar. But this modification breaks show other health text. But this works perfect. Go to line 542 in tidyplatesthreat.lua then rem out the lines shown in the code starting with "--[[" and ending with "--]]". Btw this is what i was asking for earlier.
Only thing I didn't test was to see if the name can go out of bounds, but hopefully that doesn't happen.

Works perfect for now I'm adding some custom color for certain names this will come useful for some boss fights where you need to spot a mob out of a cluster of targets. Hopefully that can be added as a feature.

Is there anyway to disable the white rectangle around targets when you mouse over them?

Code:
local function SetSpecialText(unit) 
  return unit.name
end
--[[	local HpPct
	local HpAmt
	local HpMax
	if TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.percent then
		if (TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.amount or TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.max) then
			if TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.deficit and not TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.max and unit.health == unit.healthmax then
				HpPct = floor(100*(unit.health / unit.healthmax)).."%"
			else
				HpPct = " - "..floor(100*(unit.health / unit.healthmax)).."%"
			end
		else
			HpPct = floor(100*(unit.health / unit.healthmax)).."%"
		end
	else
		HpPct = ""
	end
	if TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.amount then
		if TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.deficit then
			if (unit.health == unit.healthmax) then
				HpAmt = ""
			else
				HpAmt = "-"..Truncate(unit.healthmax - unit.health)
			end
		else
			HpAmt = Truncate(unit.health)
		end
	else HpAmt = ""
	end
	if TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.max then
		if TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.amount then
			if TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.deficit and unit.health == unit.healthmax then
				HpMax = Truncate (unit.healthmax)
			else
				HpMax = " / "..Truncate(unit.healthmax)
			end
		else
			HpMax = Truncate(unit.healthmax)
		end
	else
		HpMax = ""
	end
	if TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.settings.options.showSpecialText then
		if (unit.health / unit.healthmax) < 1 then
			return HpAmt..HpMax..HpPct
		else
			if TidyPlatesThreat.db.profile.text.full then
				return HpAmt..HpMax..HpPct
			else
				return ""
			end
		end
	else
		return ""
	end
end --]]

I don't really know which information could be useful to you in solving this problem, so would be nice if you just ask me what you need to know
I'm not sure were the problem is, I didn't really change a whole lot.

I need to review my coding.

Is it possible to make friendly name plates only show for target only. This would be useful on bloodqueen when you need to bite someone. Then you target them and you see a nameplate on that unit only. Making it easy to spot.

May be useful for mobs as well. Long as its an option for both.

Also for mob plates to change their text or healthbar or frame color based on the name you set in the options.
So you have an options window for a list of names, type, color.

Important mob1, frame, yellow. This would color the nameplate frame yellow when if the name equals this or changes to this during combat.
Important mob2, health bar, orange. Same as above except healthbar on the name plate changes orange.

Re: Working with other tanks

Could you implement an option that would shrink the plates and give a different glow (say blue) if the mob is being tanked by either someone designated as a main tank, or matching a specified name?

ThreatPlates are great for showing when I have threat, and when I don't have threat. What they don't show is when a mob is being safely handled by one of my fellow tanks (so I can ignore them) or when its running loose beating up healers and other squishies (when I should probably taunt it).
Posted by suicidalkatt @ Curse.com Monday, February 01, 2010 12:34:12 PM (2 weeks ago)

As much as I would like to have that feature available, it's not possible with Tidy Plates considering there are no associations to UnitID's of the mobs the nameplates represent.

The communication from one tank to the other / tank targets won't mean anything if the nameplates are just floating boxes of information that can't tell you which mob EXACTLY that they represent.
I may make a mouseover feature that will look for the target the mob is casting on / attacking and check to see if the player is a tank or not.

It would then display a confirmation graphic of some kind. The nameplate will still show as "low threat" but it will have something to show it's "safeness".

Thank you,

EDIT: or even if we lose threat on a mob, we can have the bar turn blue or yellow. Something drastic, because red/green colorblind is the most common type of colorblind. It makes up of about 80%, if not more, of all colorblind folks,

Thanks again...
You can change the colors of the threat glows, there are other textures you can use and make yourself.

Their is currently a mouse over threat, however the configurations for it can't really be done considering its a fixed frame that's only updated when you mouseover.

I'm not sure how I want to go with its design. It's looking more like a combo points system any anything else.

Love the addon!

Been using it for a while now and the only thing i would like is an option to have the Elite mob graphic (golden dragon) on a nameplate.
Why? because sometimes when tanking i would like to select an elite in a pack on non elites quickly and a graphic stands out better for me.
