Help turning off that ulgy extra bar!

UI and Macro
Is there anyway to turn off the super ulgy hatred bar from the taran zhu encounter in shadow-pan monastery? my ui displays this information for me so seeing this bar is just obstructing my UI, not to say its super cheesy looking. This question doesnt only pertain to this encounter but other raid/quest encounters as well.
The bar is part of the default UI. AFAIK it cant be changed.
You would have to check what ever addon you are using to turn off features. You might wanna ask here http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/1011693/
Its soo ugly and annoying, it blocks my cast bar and parts of my nameplates.
The addon MoveAnything will allow you to move and/or hide any default UI element, including that one (I don't recall specifically what it's called though)

Also, when you say it's blocking parts of your "Nameplates", I suspect you actually mean "Unit Frames".
Nameplates are the health bars that appear above Units' heads inside the game world; they do not occupy a fixed location on your screen.
The health bars that you constantly see in fixed locations on your screen for your character, target, focus, and party/raid members are called Unit Frames. This distinction will be important if you ever seek advice for modifying those UI elements, as they are handled by completely separate APIs.
If you use MoveAnything, you can search for those frames and easily move them. The bar is called 'Alternative Energy Bar'. The associated button is called 'Extra Action Button'.

The energy bar and action button frames are not unique to encounters. If you move it for the Monastery fight, then it will be moved for all events that utilize those frames, including the Tillers quest to find the prize chicken.

It's part of the Default UI so it can be changed/hidden/disabled actually.

ive looked for this and it is nowhere to be found in moveanything are you sure it isnt called something else now?
Its name is something like PowerActionBarAlt. To find the exact name, just type /fstack and mouse over the element when you see it, and it'll print out the name in the tooltip.
