Be sure to include state or country when requesting articles

I'm sure that some people are requesting articles that focus on a city.  Be sure to include the state or country that the city is located so the writers will write about the correct location.

It helps the writer to know which country the article is intended for since spelling varies between for example Australia and the US. If I know an article is for Australia then I write accordingly and the same for the US. A classic example is the difference in the spelling of colour (Aus) color (US)

You really can't expect language specific modifications at this price. That's just asking too much.

You can always make those changes after you get your article back.

To clarify, the reason I originally started this thread was because I saw an article request regarding a particular service in "Melbourne".  I happen to live near the city of Melbourne in the state of Florida, so I know that the article could have been for Florida's Melbourne, but could also have been for Australia's (or even another state, should there be more than one Melbourne in the US).  It is possible that clarification was made in the instructions (I didn't write the article to find out), but it made me realize the importance of customers specifying where a city is located when requested those type of articles.
