from Style guide:

  • Use downstyle capitalisation - Downstyle capitalisation is the preferred style. Only the initial word and proper nouns are capitalized. In upstyle headlines, all nouns and most other words with more than four letters are capitalized.

Does "Million Registered Users" phrase is proper noun? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 19:38 Feb 28, 2006 (UTC)

I don't think so. I'm a new user, and I think I shall head over to the style guide now. Feel free to move the page if you want. Jfingers88 01:47, 1 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Speaking "on background" (off the record, not to be quoted in the story), I think this story is silly and this "milestone" is not important. We have never talked about the number of registered users because it has virtually no real meaning. We know that a lot of accounts are created by bots, we know that a lot of people create accounts and never come back. This is the sort of "milestone" that websites used to talk about in the dot-com boom days. --Jimbo Wales 14:42, 1 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree with Jimbo, but I also feel it's important for those participating in the project to get recognition for the work their doing. Sure, one million users may be a silly milestone, but as I see it, so is the One Millionth Article. Despite the hard work of those on Wikipedia there are a good number of articles that are complete trash, and probably should not have been counted. Still, let the milestone be, its awknowledgement won't have a negative impact on the project and it gives people a chance to reflect on the work they've been doing. --Wolfrider 02:35, 2 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Guardian Unlimited thinks it's important. Besides, people are important too. Jfingers88 01:54, 2 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
