Global: World records must be something that is known to the world community. First, we promise to help promoting your record-setting attempt to the world by introducing it on our official website. Second, your record-setting attempt must not be too specific or restricted by region or country. For example, we can't recognize the largest Torii (a Shinto shrine gateway) as world record, because Torii can only be founded in Japan. However, we can recognize the largest Pho (a traditional Vietnamese dish) bowl, because Pho now appears in the menu of many international restaurants.
