I think we just passed 11,000 articles!

With a bunch of very, very short "X is X" articles. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 16:12, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
That's only a fraction of the work done in the past couple years to get us to this point! --Wingfoot 16:38, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Wingfoot, Much of what you've done does not require much research, just skill in transcribing.But, what is the intention of this post? You win something when reaches 11,000?(Sigurd 17:48, 30 April 2014 (UTC))

No, it wasn't my goal in editing to pass 11,000 articles, in fact I didn't realize that it was passed until afterwards. I just thought that you guys usually made note of it whenever you made it to another thousand, and I thought that I'd give you a heads-up. By the way, I usually don't have much time in my crowded schedule to do a lot of research, so I'll usually be doing small edits that are mostly concerned with consistency, typos, and wanted pages. Nothing very important or significant. In fact the reason I joined Tolkien Gateway in the first place was because of all the small inconsistencies and typos that irked me while I was doing Tolkien research, and I figured that it was easier to help with editing if I had a user account. I'm sorry if I bother you. I'm not trying to come in here and take credit for doing all the easy work while you guys are doing all the hard work. I just want to help in any way I can! Think of me as an overgrown fool-of-a-Took hobbit lad who meddles in affairs too big for him even though he's too small to make much of a difference. :) --Wingfoot 01:58, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
