Lift IP rate limit - Wikipedia 15 Concepcion - 2016-01-14 and 2016-01-15
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The local chapter (WM-CL), will host an edit-a-thon event at Concepcion on January 14 and 15, 2016.

This event will include a Wikipedia editing workshop (on the 14) and an Edit-a-thon (on the 15), with editors working together to learn or improve their editing skills, and then to create or improve articles related to Chile, primaraly in Spanish Wikipedia and potentially on Spanish Wikivoyage.

We are expecting about 50 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 University of Concepcion. Could I please request you to remove the 7 username in a 6 hour period limit with these details?

If this task cannot be deployed, because it has been requested too late, is more than understandable, but we really just got the IP's from the University, so we apology again, and thank you very much to whoever picks this tasks.

Happy to pick this up when I get back from work (5 hours time) if no one else has nabbed it! :)

Samtar set Security to None.

And I'll nab this off @Samtar if they don't grab it by the time I'm home too :P

As this hasn't been done yet. Just wanted to check - you do mean 2016, not 2015? :P
