Probably the most confusing part about Drupal for a beginner (read: Me!) is figuring out which modules should be used to develop new functionality. I'm looking for the path I would need to take to develop the specific functionality I'm trying to create.
This is what I'm looking to accomplish:
-Attach a user created "idea" or "opinion" to a forum post or thread
-Allow users to vote on & modify these "ideas" and "opinions"
Any leads are appreciated.
