This is where participants and non-participants of the West Midlands WikiProject can add their requests for articles which would fall under the scope of the project (The West Midlands county in England).
Search for the article before posting it and check the spelling. If the article has not been created and you are unable to create it then add the name of the article under the appropriate heading and give a short sentence of what the article would be about to explain the importance of such an article. A link to information on the subject may be useful as citation when the article is created.
