    Hey there,

    I'm fairly new at webdesigning in general, with some basic knowledge in html/php/mysql.

    I would like to create a page where people can submit their own stories, very similar to warpdrive.se or bash.org

    I would like people to be able to add, rate, and possibly comment. I would also like to categorize every story and give the user the option of looking at stories from one or multiple categories. Other than that, I want it to be very minimalistic.

    Is this possible to accomplish easier with WordPress than to do it all in regular code? I basically have to learn both from scratch.

    Appreciate it!

    Yes, you can do it.. You can do it by adding your users and set their user's rights such as being a contributor or authors..

    I would probably start with a plugin - maybe give this one a look:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-submitted-posts/

    From there, you can probably style the submission form to your liking. That should at least get you a start.
