I'd say that world size is directly tied to player base size. Most newbies
aren't going to care about the high level areas, & most high level
wont care about low level areas.

As long as there are enough rooms to let people kill when they want to
(without having to wait for a zone repop) I'd say you're good to go.

This response also assumes that the main activity on your mud is killing,
if you've gone UO style & coded other exp gaining, or character advancing
ways, apply the same theory.

On QS, we've got ~12k rooms, & normally have anywhere from 10-30 people
on.  Because a good chunk of our classes are alignment specific (paladins,
rangers, demon worshippers, etc) we needed to provide multiple zones for
different alignments so people could kill & maintain their alignment
at all levels.
