slightly offtopic: What did you use voting/commenting ? When I last looked none of the plugins in that area were maintained

One of my friends pointed me to this site: http://ruby-toolbox.com/, it's great for finding maintained plugins.

To answer your question: I used thumbs_up for voting, acts_as_commentable for comments, clearance for authentication and paperclip for file uploads.

I found thumbs_up before I knew of ruby-toolbox: I went to the acts_as_voteable github page, clicked on "Network" and scrolled to the right as far as possible. Most rubyists are very active on github, and a lot of the packages are forked.

Thank you :) I was looking for something that integrates rating (not voting) and commenting in one package. I found this https://github.com/grimen/is_reviewable through the toolbox. But last commit is from 2009. Hopefully someone has forked it or I will have to fix it

Abandoned gems is one of the biggest problems I have with Ruby. Rubygems is starting to look like CPAN, which makes my sysadmin life hell.
