WOO-HOO!!!
The Brickset database has just reached over 10,000 items this day! Here's to 10,000 things and 80 years of Lego!
News this momentous just had to be announced somewhere. :D
So who's got them all? ;)

    I must have lotr on the brain. The first thing I thought of when I saw this thread title in the collecting discussion was...omg someone is going to try to recreate the battle of Helms Deep for real :)

    Sorry... somebody had to.

    Congratulations Brickset!

    Moved to The Database, seemed a more suitable category to me. Before clicking in to look at the content for a second I thought someone had just logged their 10,000th set.

    It's a great milestone, but I'm not that excited about it. 1300 of them are tat and IMO not really worthy of inclusion...

    ^So there'll be a celebration when it gets to 11,300, then, eh? ;-)

    I know there's not 10,000 sets, but 10,000 different entries has got to count for something, right? :)

    I immediately thought Chrome C-3PO.

    Shows what my LEGO brain is immediately hardwired to think.

    Just exclude gear from the count Huw, you do that elsewhere on the site.

    Yes, I could do, although it does say 'items' and not 'sets'

    I've been experimenting with categorising sets based on their number series and type, as I discussed in the db admins forum a while ago.

    The types and totals so far identified are:

    Normal 1-5 digit numbered sets: 7936
    Product Collections: 300 (sets that contain other sets)
    Gear: 1391
    Extended product lines: 119 (sets that don't have a normal set number)
    Other: 277 (sets that have an alphanumeric fan-allocated set number)

    Do the CMFs come under 'extended product lines' or are they considered normally numbered? FWIW I only consider each group of 16 to be a set .. not sure where i got that 'rule' from but it seems wrong calling a single figure a set.

    Whilst I agree it seems wrong to count 1 CMF as a set, what do you do if you only have 1 or 2 (or 15)? I therefore think it is technically correct to call each one a set. Luckily, Huw caters for both camps in the database.
