I'm new here, but I like the idea. I was already getting all kinds of ideas about my own universe and the characters in it. I then realised that depending on the subject, I'd have to split that between art, character builds, stories and universe building. Having your own corner where those combine would be a good idea.

Some kind of facility for bookmarking one's favourite user blogs from within the Tank itself seems like a necessity.
I see the danger of fragmentation. I think it just means that you need to be able to put notices on the forums when there are updates in some form, and probably stickied threads with lists or something.
It's not an easy thing to do right, and then I'm not even talking about the coding involved (even when using existing phpBB modules it's rarely a 1-1 fit.) Good luck with it if you go though with it, I'll look forward to the result.
