    Hello,

    I would like to create a blog where people can post or submit stories anonymously.
    Is it possible, and if so, how would I go about achieving it?

    The blog I need help with is testingthisrighthere.wordpress.com.

  2. Blogs are not public noticeboards and opening your blog to anonymous commenters is is all you can do. Yes, you can allow anonymous comments by changing the settings on this page > Settings > Discussion

    Comment author must fill out name and e-mail – When this setting is on, anyone leaving a comment will be forced to leave a name and a valid email address. If the setting is off, visitors can leave anonymous comments. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/

    Do I advise doing that? Never! Did you know that over 80% of all comments submitted to the WordPress.com domain are spam?

    Also consider that those who write do so under their own copyright sand they too can have their own free blog so why would they post their stories on your blog?

    If you wish to add official users to your blog and assign them an author roles please click the link I provided.
