That's exactly it. The original naming convention was EXTREMELY
confusing and hard to explain. The table names were chosen during that
Each network has a record stored in wp_sites. Each network can contain
many blogs stored in wp_blogs. The Network Admin can be different for
each network. The privileges and access of members are dependent upon
each blog in each network. HOWEVER, the user list is still shared
between the networks and you need to account for that. Unless there's
been some special coding added in a recent release, that means usernames
and email address must be unique across the entire set of networks.
That can cause confusion if you are doing membership sites in networks
that are not intended to be connected.
