I agree with Brian actually now that its mentioned. Although I am not against an article on our 10,000th, it does seem "cheesey." We do need a big story though :)

The "chance to cheer" is today, we just need nine articles and we can manage
that. We can go for a big story as 10K published, or the craziest Wackynews,
it is up to us - the contributors - how we mark the milestone.

Just don't make it anything to do with us having 10K articles.
