Guinness Records Gives Thumbs Down to Record

I heard back from Guinness World Records last week in regards to my website which I believe has the world's largest webpage. After examining www.worldsbiggestwebsite.com and considering my application they had the following to say… very sad. 

Claim ID: 3xxxxxx

Dear Mr David Alley,

Thank you for sending us the details of your recent record attempt for 'Biggest Website Page'. We are afraid to say that we are unable to accept this as a Guinness World Record.

While we certainly do not underestimate your proposal, we do however think that this item is a little too specialised for a body of reference as general as ours. We receive many thousands of record claims every year and we think you will appreciate that we are bound to favour those which reflect the greatest interest.

Guinness World Records has absolute discretion as to which Guinness World Record applications are accepted and our decision is final. Guinness World Records may at its discretion and for whatever reason identify some records as either no longer monitored by Guinness World Records or no longer viable.

As your record application has not been accepted, Guinness World Records is in no way associated with the activity relating to your record proposal and we in no way endorse this activity. If you choose to proceed with this activity then this is will be of your own volition and at your own risk.

Once again thank you for your interest in Guinness World Records.

Yours sincerely,

xxxxxxxxxxx 
Records Management Team
