Trying to make sense of this[edit]

I deleted the second sentence in this paragraph because it is too convoluted to be comprehensible:

In 1892, Candler set out to incorporate a second company; "The Coca-Cola Company" (the current corporation). When Candler had the earliest records of the "Coca-Cola Company" burned in 1910, the action was claimed to have been made during a move to new corporation offices around this time.[1]

That deletion was reverted. Rather than deleting it again I put the call out for someone to figure out the intent and edit it to make sense.

Proposed merge with New Coke[edit]

It's just a special brand of Coca-Cola Schuddeboomw (talk) 17:58, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose Nope; it's an important moment in the history of not only the company but marketing as a whole (people still reference it as a seminal mistake by an established company, even 30 years later and, I daresay, American culture as a whole. Daniel Case (talk) 18:02, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose as strongly as possible. New Coke is incredibly notable on its own. oknazevad (talk) 19:18, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose. There is a well-cited article on New Coke that makes a clear case for independent notability, both based on the product and the, well, fiasco of its release. —C.Fred (talk) 19:48, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I agree that New Coke has sufficient notability for a standalone article. Deli nk (talk) 20:16, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Oppose Agree with above, that New Coke deserves its own article. Elisfkc (talk) 20:09, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Can somebody change the Start date and age template from the current {start date and age|1886} to {start date and age|1886|5|8} to correspond to Coca-Cola's official first serving date according to the article? 173.73.242.76 (talk) 01:28, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 1 April 2016[edit]

Please add a line about "the bottling rights of coca cola that was sold for US$ 1 to Tennessee based business men Joseph B. Whitehead and Joseph A. Biedenharn in the year 1899" under the heading origins of bottling. (source: https://www.worldofcoca-cola.com/about-us/coca-cola-history/) Mridulkat06 (talk) 00:12, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
