Any of you webmasters experienced with setting up and managing a multi-blog base?  (Any player can post to his own blog only; multiple blogs available via index pages).  Any guidance, cautionary tales, recommendations?  We're currently in a Python environment, possibly moving to Ruby on Rails.

Just out of curiosity - what kind of a "base" are you using?

The website is built in Python - the game itself is based on ROM.

We have no 'base' for the player blogs yet - that's why I'm seeking ideas and recommendations now.

Ah, I was somehow under an impression that you already have something working and just need recommendations on additional features, security, and whatnot.

Since you are already using Python (and need a blog) I'd recommend Django - it's all pure Python, and at least as simple to set up and maintain as RoR. A blog base in it should be a walk in the park, as long as you already have authentication and CSS figured out.

One more specific recommendation: if you do go with Django and want tags for user blogs, then the TagsField
app looks excellent. AFAIK, all documentation is in Russian, but the source should be straightforward enough. Plus, there are some example code snippets here. Haven't tried it myself, but the interface looks very cool.

I hope I'll manage to translate TagsField into English on weekend. The app seems to be popular :-)
