There are also heaps of cognates that look easy in a list but that might not be so easy to recall in isolation.

It's very unlikely I'll go far with this either way :D

It just occurred to me that with memrise I could take the total number of words it shows I've committed to memory (and make note of it somewhere) and add 10,000 to it. That way I could add the words I want from my readings but still continue on with my memrise "courses" until I hit the +10,000 without adding all 10,000 myself which seems a bit daunting to be honest.

It really makes no difference to me ... my goal is to keep pounding the words into my head. I have already noticed that with the current Italian book that I'm reading I understand words that I recently learned via memrise that I don't think I would have recognized 3-4 months ago.

You could do that, but you don't have to. Using Memrise, as long as your "in long term memory LTM" figure for each course total 10,000 or more on 31 Dec 2017, you've more than met the Challenge. You don't need 10k more items in LTM, you just need 10k items in LTM.

The "in long term memory LTM" figure = words learned/planted and not overdue for watering. Since the max interval in Memrise is 180 days, if a word is not due for watering on 31 Dec 2017, it'd mean the word has been watered at least once between July and Dec 2017, which is within the Challenge period.

10k items in LTM on 31 Dec 2017
= 10k items watered between Jul and Dec 2017
= Challenge met.

"10k items in LTM on 31 Dec 2017" is actually more than what's required by the Challenge, but I don't think there's any easy way to exactly meet the Challenge in Memrise. (Nor in Anki AFAIK).

I am in! I registered for Spanish and French in the SuperChallenge and I think this SRS challenge goes along with it very well.

For the record:
I start the challenge with the following cards already "in learning"
Spanish: 905
French: 110

I am using Anki.
