I've been using WordPress since a long time and I own several blogs hosted on WP.com and self-hosting such as http://www.aisajib.com
Lately I've decided to create a blogging network where a large number of people will join as authors and share their thoughts, opinions, memories, daily life, etc. I installed WordPress 3 Release Candidate 1 on an experimental hosting and hopped around the latest Multisite feature.
Note that I want a lot of bloggers -- say thousands -- to write on a single blog. Multisite is not really what I'm looking for. So, I just decided not to use Multisite feature for my upcoming blogging network.
Now, the question is, is it alright to go with regular WordPress for a blog having over thousands of bloggers? I mean, is it going to mess up my database? Should I go WordPress Multisite? I don't want to use it as I don't want to allow several blogs. I will have one single blog and people will write there.
Again, is it alright if I use regular WordPress installation for over thousands of bloggers/authors?
Any help will be gratefully appreciated. Simply ask me if you need any more information that you think would be helpful for you to answer.
