WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth

Shortcut:

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in the U.S. state of Texas.

This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there. The scope of WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth is to expand, and keep organized, the vast expanse of articles covering topics related to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, including its governing bodies, its geographical features, its people, its culture, and its history. We will do this through volunteer contributors and editors. If you are interested in joining the WikiProject, please feel free to add your name to the Participants list below, and find yourself an article to adopt.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.
