I voted for more than 10k, but you seems to be missing some 0's behind that 10k.

I voted for less, but only because I believe that the Earth is not much older than 10,000, and I know that in terms of ballpark closeness, less than 10,000 is closer to the truth than people are thinking when they choose more. I think it is altogether possible based on biblical geneology and the amount of time spent before the Fall of Man, that the Created Universe is less than 25,000 years old.
I believe there is strong evidence for a Bounded Universe, not as much for an unbounded one as many astronomers would lead us to believe.
I believe the Universe was formed, not by Cosmic Evolution, but by the Word of God.
I also believe that Man is desperately wicked, and does not seek after God. I believe Man will always look for a way to separate himself from a Just and Righteous God to avoid being shown guilty before such a Being.
I also believe those who believe this are a minority these days, as men would rather have their ears tickled by the newest ideas of "science" while explaining away evidence of a young created Earth.

I hope this doesn't turn into a religion vs. science debate, because that is simply not what is at stake.

Does the belief that the world is less than 10,000 years old = disbelief in Dinosaurs?

No. In fact, there is logical evidence to support the idea that many "dinosaurs" aka lizards who were really big, are still in many ways around today, albeit smaller because of the less tropical climate and less oxygen-rich atmosphere that the post-flood world we live in today has.
