314 - Raid marker placement option

I use the Neon theme and Headline option for friendly units.

I love this option when raiding, makes it very easy to see the placement of every raider.

However, the raid marks on friendly units are placed on the left side of the name.

Raids marks are often used for stacking, for example during the maze phase of Durumu. Having the raid icon on the left side of the name complicated this a bit.

Would it be possible to have an option to put the raid mark on top of the person instead?

I know this can be done using other themes, but I kinda love the Neon one.

    @Gjerdesmett: Go

    A solution that I can think of is to have the raid icon above the bar while there are no auras being displayed, and move it to the side when there are auras present. Gotta think about a good way of doing this...

    That is a very good question. I do use debuff icons and they would be (if more than one debuff) on top of the raid marker.

    However, I am only interested in centered raid icons for friendly units, so it has never been a problem for me.

    Not easy to find an elegant solution I guess.

    @Gjerdesmett: Go

    Just curious: Are you using buffs/debuff icons? Does this new placement affect their usage?

    I usually change neon.lua (raidIcon) to

    x = 0, y = VerticalAdjustment +20

    so I get the raid marker on top of the person.

    Would be nice to have an option for placement though.
