Yes, this is a wikimedia project, but has less than 10,000 articles. 
Therefore your entry does not go into the first part of the list but 
under "other languages". And that is where I now moved your entry.

I hope you understand that we understand well how relevant Cherokee for 
the regional languages is (please don't understand the term regional). 
Nonetheless all of us have to follow these rules and many languages are 
still below the 10,000 hurdle. I hope to see the number 1000 soon - let 
me know when you reach it ... it is hard work for a small community. 
Once you have 1000 the step to reach 5000 is much faster and from there 
to 10,000 is faster again.

I know you are doing loads of work with machine translation on the 
non-wikimedia wiki - unfortunately, up to now I did not manage to 
install a proper font to be able to read that wiki - I tried more than 
once, but for some reason my computer refuses to install the font :-(

Best wishes from Italy,
