Adding Locations in MB

Hi

I’m a little confused as to how we add additional “places” to existing locations, for example we have Oneida County:
https://musicbrainz.org/area/ecc119df-7a96-451f-9a42-8c5299c1dbd5

But it doesn’t have a sub-part Minocqua (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minocqua,_Wisconsin)

Yet my home county in England has most small towns/villages listed:
https://musicbrainz.org/area/c58e25fa-9d99-4ff3-b4b8-a7e7b2cf452c

How do we expand this list?

The locations where automatically copied from wikidata but it looks like that stopped years ago.

I think the process is to create a ticket to add areas as needed.

Goto the following:

https://tickets.metabrainz.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa

Login then you’ll see a green button at top that says “create”. Select “Area Request” under project. Leave as task. I usually just type the name of the place you want to add in summary and in description add the Wikipedia link if there is one. Areas are usually added within days of request. Just look at the many area request already there for better understanding.
