Lift IP rate limit - Santiago Editatón - 2015-10-23 and 2015-10-24
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The local chapter (WM-CL), will host an edit-a-thon event at Santiago on October 23 and 24, 2015.

This event will include a Wikipedia editing workshop (on the 23) and an Edit-a-thon (on the 24), with editors working together to learn or improve their editing skills, and then to create or improve articles related to Chilean publications and magazines, primaraly in Spanish Wikipedia.

We are expecting about 30 people to attend. One of the things we'd like to do is encourage potential newbie participants to create their own accounts during the session and learn editing, guided by some active editors.

Sorry for the late request, but we just got the IP numbers confirmed by the National Library. Could I please request you to remove the 7 username in a 6 hour period limit with these details?

Change 247872 had a related patch set uploaded (by Luke081515):
Add throttle exception for eswiki at 2015-10-23

I added it for a fast deploy, so I guess we deploy it, before the event starts, but please request it a bit earlier next time ;).

Luke081515, thanks! We do our best to provide the IP as soon as possible, but institutions have their own internal mechanisms, and times. We are aware that we have to request it earlier, but some times its out of hour hands. Thanks again for your time and help!
