MU Trac Ticket: http://mu.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/1079

1: there needs to be native ability to select how many blogs each user can have.

2: there needs to be the ability for users to add blogs for users who signed up with out creating a blog and for those who want to add additional blogs to their current list(depending on the blog limit you set in feature request 1 above) from the "my blogs" tab in their site admin panel.

3: if the ability to select the number of blogs each user can have is put into place, the option to have the blog auto created to the users name when blog limit is set to 1. ie: user signs up with "username" and wants to add his 1 allotted blog it would be auto created using his user name like this example.com/username or username.example.com depending on your settings.

these enhancements kinda all tie together and am surprised they are not currently implemented...

Seems like one of the reasons this never got replied to is that it came over from the MU trac during the merge.

1: there needs to be native ability to select how many blogs each user can have.

IMO, this is plugin material. Related #21662. Limit Blogs Per User hasn't been updated in a while, but I'm not sure that the demand is high enough to add an option into core.

2: there needs to be the ability for users to add blogs for users who signed up with out creating a blog and for those who want to add additional blogs to their current list(depending on the blog limit you set in feature request 1 above) from the "my blogs" tab in their site admin panel.

I feel like this is also something that should be solved based on the network's needs with custom functionality. There are a number of different workflows that could lead to a user becoming a member of a site. We account for the admin method in core. Registration and signup can be templated in different ways.

3: if the ability to select the number of blogs each user can have is put into place, the option to have the blog auto created to the users name when blog limit is set to 1. ie: user signs up with "username" and wants to add his 1 allotted blog it would be auto created using his user name like this example.com/username or username.example.com depending on your settings.

I think #14215 is a better ticket toward any enhancement of this kind.

I'm going to close this as maybelater. Feel free to discuss further if one of these features is warranted. It may also be worth opening a ticket with a more specific feature request that addresses one.
