Last updated by Michele

In reply to Steve Clay suggestion here http://community.elgg.org/discussion/view/1125895/share-your-top-10-plugins , this is my list.

What an hard job to select them and at the end couldn't help to make it a Top 15 instead of Top 10 ....

Hope it helps somebody and thank Steve for trying to make us all interact on this interesting issue!
