There is a sand box to play in.

Photos[edit]

Seeing that 66% of the stores are in the US, do you think that at least ONE of the photos in this article could be of a store in the US? Do we really need two stores from the UK and two from Mexico?

Why does it matter? Think about it, Burger King is an American company, owned by a Brazilian investment firm that is now legally based in Canada. Further, the majority of its future locations are expected to be located outside of North America within a few years. So what if the pictures are of foreign locations?
Hey, I wrote most of this stuff and it doesn't really faze me that the images used are from outside the US. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 07:07, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Why does it matter that an encyclopedic article contains representative content? Is that really what you must asked? LMAO!

What About Burger King in Middle East?[edit]

Hi. Why is there nothing in this article about Burger King's activities in the Middle East, especially considering the amount of news material on the topic over the last few years? It would seem to me that it should be included... Also, why is there limited information - almost sporadic - about the ownership of Burger King? Isn't that one of the central premises to be included in an encyclopaedic article about a business enterprise? In both cases, it seems as if a sizeable piece of information has been left out of the topic at hand... Regards, Steve Stevenmitchell (talk) 11:03, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

this is an article in what is known as WP: summary style. You would find that information in the Burger King franchises article. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 04:01, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 6 March 2016[edit]

Can you please unprotect this article? It have been protected for a long time. 66.167.141.26 (talk) 13:25, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

Information icon You first need to ask the protecting admin:-
To find out which admin protected the page click on "View history" at the top of the article page (not this talk page), then click on "View logs for this page" which is immediately under the title of the page.
In this instance it was User:Dabomb87, but looking at Special:Contributions/Dabomb87 s/he has not edited since 19 January 2014, so there is little point in asking them.
You, therefore, need to go to Wikipedia:Requests for page protection#Current requests for reduction in protection level explain who the protecting admin was, and that they are no longer active, and explain WHY you think the page should be unprotected. - Arjayay (talk) 13:59, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
Comment - The reason this article is permanently semi-protected is that it has been the subject of numerous vandalism actions by IP editors. Each time the protection has been removed, the vandalism began in earnest and the protection had to be reinstated. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 17:15, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
protection questioned - doesn't look like vandalism ::

Although I haven't done an complete search, I looked at a couple of revisions done and disagree with calling them vandalism. They look like legitimate contributions.

I note the lack of updates to the article to recognize that BK is no longer an American company but rather a subsidiary. A transition performed for tax inversion. It seems like the protection is provided to ensure a favourable article rather than an accurate one.

Also see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:IPs_are_human_too I don't see the benefit to logging in - there are just too many passwords running around my head to keep another one in there. When I have contributions that are solid I put them in. I am a scientist. When I have doubts I put them in talk. Don't categorize all IP editors as spammers or you end up with out of date articles like this one.

See tax inversion. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_inversion — Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.103.184.76 (talk) 12:52, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 26 November 2016[edit]

I could be wrong, but shouldn't the first sentence underneath Burger King#Controversies and legal cases say 1953 instead of 1954, to reflect its original foundation year? 173.73.227.128 (talk) 02:14, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Interesting question. Technically BK was formed in 1954 following the bankruptcy of InstaBK, which, in it of itself, is a controversy.--☾Loriendrew☽ (ring-ring) 23:58, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
Question: Do we count InstaBK for the purpose of this edit? -- Dane2007 talk 03:59, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 2 January 2017[edit]

More news on their improving their products section.. Would go good after "The Whopper was the most prominently reformulated product in this round of introductions with a new type of cheese and packaging."

In December 2016 it was announced that by the end of 2017 there would no longer be antibiotics used in their chicken. [1] Ilikerealnews (talk) 16:08, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
