The procedure for the articles on the numbers 200, 300, through 900, was based on a procedure that User:GUllman practiced with articles on the numbers 20, 30 through 90, of including at the end stubs for the non-round numbers for the numbers that followed (i.e., the article on 300 has at its end stubs for the articles on 301 to 399). The stubs are grown there until they grow big enough to merit their own articles.
When we come to the thousands, we find that fewer numbers in this range will grow big enough to merit their own articles. In fact, many of them might not merit stubs at all. So there will only be extremely short stubs for selected numbers in the 1000s. Some of these will grow to merit their own articles. Many will not.

koouy's there a reference to "Meehan, Eileen R., Why TV is not our fault : television programming, viewers, and who's really in control Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield, 2005"?
- I was going to point out the same. --Ben T/C 14:45, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
To make sure you know this, chilia- is the Greek numerical prefix for 1000. The Latin equivalent is mill-. I've been checking to see if there are enough chilia words for Wikipedia to have an article on this prefix. Can anyone think of any?? 184.108.40.206 14:28, 4 Sep 2004 (UTC)
- Chiliad (a group of 1000 things; a millennium), chiliagon, chiliahedron, chiliarch (the commander of 1000 men), chiliasm (millenarianism), chiliast, chiliomb (a sacrifice of 1000). I didn't think of these - I looked them up - and I left out the obsolete ones. --Heron 15:44, 4 Sep 2004 (UTC)
- kilo- itself is based on this Greek word, with a simplified spelling. In Italian it is still chilometro and Latinists use chiliometrum. —Muke Tever 17:35, 4 Sep 2004 (UTC)
- Well, what is the reason for the different spelling?? 220.127.116.11 18:01, 17 Sep 2004 (UTC)
- Well the form "kilo-" was, I believe, coined by the French. Presumably this was to make a standard pronunciation; chi- can be read several different ways across the languages of Europe, e. with [tS] in English, [S] in French, [cC] in Spanish, [k] in Italian, [C] in German... and French doesn't have the [x] of the original. As for the second syllable, different languages will read -lio- with either one or two syllables... This is purely speculation, of course, but not unheard of; similar things have happened, just check the history of the word gas. —Muke Tever 21:52, 17 Sep 2004 (UTC)
- From the OED: "An arbitrary derivative of Gr. χίλιοι a thousand, introduced in French in 1795, at the institution of the Metric system..." It appears that the precise reason for using the k is unknown. I'm not sure the French had cross-language portability in mind in 1795, but it is a posibility, I suppose. —Tkinias 10:56, 18 Dec 2004 (UTC)
- Maybe they just didn't want another prefix starting with c since they also had centi-. Jimp 5Dec05
Docuan table messed up for some reason
For some reason, the Docuan table is messed up. I tried to fix it but my fix didn't work. I think the articles for 2k through 9k have the same problem. PrimeFan 21:43, 20 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Why does 1023 redirect here?
- Because there's not enough that can be said about it to make it worth giving it its own page. See Wikipedia:WikiProject Numbers, and contrast with 1729 or 5040. sjorford (talk) 09:50, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Numbers with A in them
The claim that the letter A does not appear in numbers less than 1,000 is simply not true; what about one hundred and one, one hundred and two, etc.? —Preceding unsigned comment added by SPNic (talk • contribs) 17:56, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
- I've often wondered myself why people insist on repeating that "fact" about "one thousand" being the lowest positive integer to contain the letter A when "one hundred and one" is considerably lower. However I think I may know the answer. According to this page: 101 (number), it is not pronounced with the word "and" in American English. Americans, apparently, pronounce it "one hundred one", in which case the fact about the letter A is indeed true. In British English, though, we do include the "and" and therefore the fact is NOT true. Can an American confirm that that is indeed how that number is said in the US? --Stenun (talk) 19:14, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
And in some cases ...
The article contains the text "...  can in some cases be greater than 1000". I'm reluctant to delete this, because I assume it is there for a reason, but is that wishful thinking, or does the statement have more than just its trivial meaning? Certainly, if there is any reason on Earth for the existance of the text, it needs to be explained. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cmsg (talk • contribs) 11:15, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
Selected numbers in the thousands
There, in my opinion are too many 'Selected numbers in the thousands'. Most individuals couldn't care less about ALL those Mertens function zero's, put those on a separate page.
