I am the creator and primary editor of this article. (Jerem43)
The are several reasons I created the article:
- To help show how BK adapts it product lines for the local taste across the globe. Being a large multinational corporation, Burger King has chosen to adapt its product lines to the markets they are operating in. The Burger King menu items article is in fact showing a facet of the corporate business strategy BK has chosen to employ as it expands globally.
- There were numerous commentaries in the Burger King Talk section about article being US-centric, specifically the Products and Advertising sections. Because of the large number of local menus and advertising programs BK has around the globe, to add all of the information from all global menus and advertising would make the primary article too large and unwieldy. With this in mind, I created the two secondary articles Burger King menu items and Burger King advertising to more accurately and thoroughly cover the information.
- The main Burger King article was over the 50 KB range, because people had added information to the Products and Advertising sections of the article n an attempt to address point 2.
- After seeing the McDonald's, Ford, Unilever and other articles, there seemed to be a precedence of showing products of these corporations. In each of these articles there there is a master list or table of contents listing the products the companies sell or manufacture. Furthermore that list or TOC have links to secondary articles that give more detail on the products. While the Burger King menu items is a separate article from the main Burger King article, it is providing the same function of the lists that are seen in those other articles. Please note that the there is a request to separate the Ford article into a main corporate article and a separate product article, this would follow the same structural pattern that I used in creating this article.
- In listing the menu items, I was attempting show how BK uses corporate cross licensing to help grow market share. Specifically, in the Beverages section you will see that BK sells specific products of other companies (Coca-Cola Corporation, Cadbury-Schweppes, Nestlé and Hershey's) to help drive customer sales. It has been shown that people exhibit brand loyalty, and this is one way BK exploits that brand loyalty in boosting its market share.
- In listing the menu items, I attempted show how BK targets specific demographic markets. If you read the article, you will see that several, but not all, have the demographic target that BK is attempting to reach with that product. (I had been cleaning up other BK related articles and was going to finish the tagging demographic markets of the products, but had not gotten back to the article.)
- Burger King is not in all markets: China, Russia and many other nations do not have Burger King restaurants. The Burger King menu items article could provide people of these regions an idea of what BK sells. This adheres to the mission of Wikipedia in providing an unbiased informational source. If people of those markets went to BK's corporate web site for that data, they would not be getting unbiased information.
Based on these facts, the 'Burger King menu items article is not trivia or just a list of menu items, but instead it helps to show some of the corporate strategies (e.g. demographic targeting, co-branding and local market awareness) BK employs in competing in the global market.
In addition, I am sure that if you research the Wikipedia database you will find similar precedence of having a separate article relating to products sold by a corporation.

Deletion of The Æffect page
I was just notified by a fan that The Æffect page was removed by you. I was in this band and it is kind of sad to see this happen. I looked at the requirements for notability and I am sure we would have qualified so I'm not sure why it was taken down? Video on MTV by Brent Chesanek (mars volta, the roots, john vanderslice, etc), record on Fueled By Ramen (Panic at the Disco, Fall Out Boy) and Suburban Home Records a notable underground punk label, played on the Warped Tour, played at CMJ and South by Southwest (SXSW), made our record at Smart Studios (Butch Vig, Nirvana, Garbage, Smashing Pumpkins). Jim Shearer, MTV VJ, was seen wearing our shirt on MTV at least on 5 different occasions while hosting video shows. If not enough users contributed info, I would be glad to make the listing accurate and detailed. The band no longer exists but that should play no part in our notability. Our importance to the music scene was strong, as we and The Faint paved the way for some of today's bands such as The Killers and other copycats to emerge. 22.214.171.124 19:49, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Brett Favre edit war
Please refrain from undoing other people's edits repeatedly, as you are doing in Brett Favre. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. Rather than reverting, discuss disputed changes on the talk page. The revision you want is not going to be implemented by edit warring. Thank you. PsyMar 07:32, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for participating in my RfA. I decided to end it; more time is needed, and I probably need a bit more experience. From here, I think I'll look at community discussion, AfD and the like. I will try to improve in the areas of concern, and thanks to everyone who supplied feedback. -- Selmo (talk) 06:27, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
Warning messages on this page have been subst'd using the AutoWikiBrowser . Note:This is not a new warning, but only some minor maintenance, following Wikipedias policy of subst'ing warning templates. Thank you.- Trevor MacInnis (Contribs) 16:54, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
From the contribs, pretty clearly starting out as a vandal. But he's had just one warning on his talk page.
Request for UNdelation
Could you UNdeleate Shingo's Devotion! The French Doll of Grief It is an article about an episoide of Sailor Moon, and we are trying to make them uniform. Could you undelate it so we have it? Lego3400: The Sage of Time 16:44, 18 December 2006 (UTC) (On behalf of WikiProject SailorMoon
I thought that Forbes website was a good citation source for the fact that 50 Cent bought Mike Tysons mansion; also 50Cent.com is his official website so i thought that that should be classed as reliable enough seen as most of the article on Wikipedia about 50 Cent is just simply copied from the Biography section of 50Cent.com. Please message back to my talk ASAP thanks -NEKEL- 00:17, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
"Don't revert vandalism edits, and also please find WP:RS for your edits Jaranda wat's sup 23:59, 20 January 2007 (UTC)"
1) It's not vandalism, it's controversy. 2) It's backed up by a link to the video. How much more of a reliable source could you provide? IWillNeverLearn 02:15, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
"You were reverting to a version that had another editor vandalism also youtube links aren't reliable sources per WP:RS, try to look for a newspaper article on the insident Jaranda wat's sup 02:17, 21 January 2007 (UTC)"
Didn't realise I had reverted to a vandalised version. WP:RS is a guideline, not a policy. Furthermore it contains nothing stating video cannot be used as a reliable source. I can't help but imagine this being left to common sense. It's a video of the event happening. IWillNeverLearn 02:27, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Thank you greatly for the offer - I feel extremely honoured and - tell the truth - not a little flattered that someone has noticed my contribs in this way. However, if it's alright with you I would prefer to wait another few weeks before going to RFA? I've seen worse candidates get the mop, but to cut a longish story short I feel that there are one or two areas of policy and process where my knowledge is slightly lacking, and I would prefer to remedy those before going to RFA, just to make it as close to cast-iron as I possibly could. Once again, thanks for the offer, and I'll give you a bell when I feel that I'm ready - which won't, I imagine, be a long time away. Cheers, Moreschi Deletion! 10:01, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Request for help
I noticed that you were instrumental in bringing a recent article to FA status. I have been trying to get the Ohio Wesleyan University article to FA status. One of the critical areas for the article that remains an issue is copyediting and prose. I was wondering if you might be willing to help me in this area? I'd greatly appreciate it! Thank you. WikiprojectOWU 22:54, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
I saw you put a note on User:GRiders page indicating that s/he is a banned user? Is that true? He's not even blocked right now and his arb case prohibition  seems to have expired back in April. I'm just wondering as I don't see a ban anywhere, I could always be wrong of course. Thanks, Rx StrangeLove 05:44, 31 December 2006 (UTC)
Nevermind, my mistake, didn't see the block log, i thought he was banned but Alkivar unblocked a while back, Radiant thinks the same as well as he deleted his userpage originally. Thanks Jaranda wat's sup 14:06, 31 December 2006 (UTC)
Saw that you reverted edits on the Lil Wayne page for streaming music and his profile on Haystack. The whole page is provided by his Label Universal Music Group. It is important that this remains up because Lil Wayne actually earns a royalty on streams. This is an official presence and should not be deleted again. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jgarbis (talk • contribs) 14:25, 31 December 2006 (UTC).

I note that the deletion log shows no summary information listing the reason for the deletion of the topic "Racism and health" - could you please advise the reason.
Epa, Jaranda! The Wikipedia:WikiProject League of Copyeditors have had a go at copyediting Yolanda Saldívar, and I was hoping you could help supply the missing sources. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 06:55, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
Well get Chubdub working on it, please. The article is salvagable, and popular culture is seriously under-represented in mainstream encyclopedias. I'd like Wikipedia to lead, rather than follow in this area--and I love to see both obscur and mainstream popular culture articles as featured articles on Wikipedia, and I like a variety. The quotes are just icky and not needed, though. KP Botany 17:36, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for your support
Thank you for your support in the RfA on my behalf. It is an honor to have received your expression of confidence. To be chosen as an administrator requires a high level of confidence by a broad section of the community. Although I received a great deal of support, at this time I do not hold the level of confidence required, and the RfA did not pass. It is my wish that I will continue to deserve your confidence.

Question Not Answered
The link you directed me to did not quite answer my question,
it said that musical group should be well represented on wikipedia, i dont see what guidelines i failed to meet or what violations i am guilty of. Please help me to under stande the problem
It's the guideline of all music articles if the band meets several of the guidelines, like multiple albums, then an article should exist of them. The article didn't give a reason to why it met those guidelines. Thanks Jaranda wat's sup 06:53, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi Jaranda. Just wanted to point out that Budgiekiller has thousands of edits which were about writing, developing the 'pedia, before his recent flurry of vandal fighting. Take a look at his Barnstar collection for some evidence of this. Or the history of the two articles he cites in Q2 of his RfA questions. He's unarguably got not many WP edits (the arguable side is how important that is, lol), but to discount him for not writing much is unfair. It's just that since the Suffolk Strangler was arrested, he's spent his time vandal fighting; a period of about a month (but a heck of a lot of edits). --Dweller 18:56, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
Several new notable referances were added to the onions page, yet the other admins continue to delete it with out giving it a chance, could you please permit krkberg to post the page uncontested? the page is now different from what you first saw and now has new referances. Thank you

Hello, I was wondering if you could explain what you meant at my editor review. It seems like a double standard that opposers can be virtually assualted with borderline personal attacks while supporters can give no reason for their positions and not be questioned at all. It seems like a double standard, my intention was not to be aggressive towards anyone, but to make sure all sides of the discussion were heard. In any case though, thank you for the feedback so far.Just H 23:53, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for participating in my recent RFA. You were amongst a number of editors who considered that I wasn't ready for the mop yet and as a consequence the RFA did not succeed (69/26/11). I am extremely grateful that you took the time to advise me on to improve as a Wikipedian and I'd like to assure you that I'll do my level best to develop my skills here to a point where you may feel you could trust me with the mop.
I've been blown away by the level of interest taken in my RFA and appreciate the time and energy dedicated by all the editors who have contributed to it, support, oppose and neutral alike. I hope to bump into you again soon and look forward to serving you and Wikipedia in any way I can. Cheers!

I was just hopping around from link to link and I noticed you prodded the Bill Froats article. I'd like to contest this prod, as other one-game MLB players (see Joe Adams (baseball)) have survived AFDs in the past. Google hits are mostly irrelevant, as this guy played in the 1950s. You'd have to look through old newspapers to find additional biographical information. If nothing else, I think this page deserves a full AFD discussion. Thanks, Zagalejo 07:16, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

I was wondering if you could remove your name from User:Phaedriel's list of departed users. I added you on 17 October 2006, which I'm guessing (I really don't feel like sifting through AN archives to find it) happened after the JaraxleArtemeis incident where he constantly sent password reset requests. You seem to decalre elaving/returning quite rapidly. I would do it myself, but Tom harrison protected the page ("preventive") on 21 December 2006. Hbdragon88 21:49, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Closure of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ben Goertzel
Are you sure that was a good idea? A Wall Street Journal article, even if only online, seems significant enough that it should be relisted for discussion, since it only showed up with the last comment. -Amark moo! 02:54, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
Closure of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Decemyriagon
I'm curious why you decided that the concensus for Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Decemyriagon was to redirect. It seemed to me the number of correspondents calling for outright deletion was about twice as large as those calling for rename/merger. Did you find one set of arguments much more compelling than the other? —David Eppstein 03:04, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
Inappropriate closure of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jeffrey Mishlove
I think your abrupt deletion of the Jeffrey Mishlove article was a totally unjustified abuse of your admin privileges. The majority of those who voted in the brief RFD period before you closed it voted to "keep" the article. The article was not, as you claim, totally unsourced--a large number of verifiable books and articles by Mishlove were documented, his television program is easily verified, there was evidence (though not definitive) that his claimed PhD in Parapsychology from Berkeley is authentic, there are 36,000 "google" hits for the guy, and the discussion was clearly still active. Bad move. BTfromLA 07:26, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
- Place it in WP:DRV and never say I abused the tools as I didn't, i was following wikipedia policies, and also I did said in the afd that the article can be recreated with valid sources Jaranda wat's sup 07:30, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
- I will place it in WP:DRV, unless you decide to rethink your hasty closure of this RfD and reopen it. (DRV suggests that I politely ask you to take a second look before putting it there, and I'm doing so now.) I think my arguments above should suffice to justify reopening the RfD. BTfromLA 07:37, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
- Fair enough. BTfromLA 07:48, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
It doesn't appear to have any references and the close looks like a good one to me.--MONGO 07:43, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Stirling Newberry. Since you closed the deletion discussion for (or speedy-deleted) this article, you might want to participate in the deletion review. — Arthur Rubin | (talk) 08:21, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
This is to thank you for your early support on my RfA, which closed favorably this morning. I appreciate the confidence the community has placed in me and am looking forward to my new responsibilities. Please let me know if ever you have any comments or suggestions, especially as I am learning how to use the tools. And as for your comment that it was "about time," I suppose all I can say is that I thought better a few weeks too late than risk a few weeks too soon, but in any event, it's done now.

Rowing at the 1896 Summer Olympics
Greetings. I just noticed you transformed the titled article into a redirect to the main sport page Rowing at the Summer Olympics. Could you explain me why you did that and erased the deletion tag I added yesterday? I specifically wanted it to be deleted so that any internal links to it, on Wikipedia, would disappear for good. If a redirect was my wish I would've done that myself. Parutakupiu talk || contribs 01:24, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
It's a valid redirect looks like, if anyone wants to find about info of that then it can be looked on the main page rather than another article being created on the same thing. Jaranda wat's sup 01:28, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
- But no other article will be created. At least by us, members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Sports Olympics. The main reason behind my intention lies on some of the templates we use extensively on Olympic-related articles which are coded to check if a sport was contested at a specific Olympiad by looking up that article's existence on Wikipedia. Well, we rely a lot on these templates, and since rowing wasn't competed in 1896, it was important to have this article deleted (obviously without neglecting its valid content which I stated in the PROD tag) so that those templates display the right data. It's a question of a dispendable article's deletion helping out the work of a WikiProject. I hope you understand. Parutakupiu talk || contribs 01:41, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for taking the time to review my contributions and contribute to my RfA. I withdrew when it became clear that the uphill climb had crossed the snowball threshold, but I appreciate your feedback and the process gave me some good ideas for other ways I can be contributing to Wikipedia.
