The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they submit, the bigger the database. If your sites gain popularity or you would like to add more content, this might be a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database storage area. The particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the site may function properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the website could be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire website may simply go offline.
