Currently, the network is stable around 13/14 nodes but in the past, it had fluctuations with the number of nodes falling several times to 8:
egrep "Exact network size: 8" /var/log/safe_vault.log
I 19-02-28 23:54:37.842574 | Exact network size: 8 |
I 19-03-18 12:08:28.530986 | Exact network size: 8 |
I 19-03-18 12:21:46.576438 | Exact network size: 8 |
I 19-03-18 12:27:35.509238 | Exact network size: 8 |
I 19-04-10 21:39:13.595242 | Exact network size: 8 |

Each account can create 8 * 1000 MB = 8 GB of data, which is 1/32 of the total space provided by 8 vaults.
And “Max space” column just displays the max_capacity parameter in safe_vault.vault.config file, which is the disk capacity that each vault should dedicate to the network. The OP has announced that this capacity is 32 GiB, but it is not enforced by network code, and we know that some vaults don’t have it.
So, current reserve is not enough to allow several accounts per forum user.
Besides, if it was, a question would be: do we allow it or do we open data upload to level 1 forum user?
