I would like to request a temporary lift of the IP cap of the number of new editor Wikipedia accounts that can be created for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon that will be held next week. Here is the following information about the event and project:
- The edit-a-thon will be held Wednesday, August 3, 3:00 pm -6:00 pm (this is the time we would need the cap lifted) Eastern Standard Time (US).
- Approximate number of users: 90
- I do not know the IP addresses that would be allowed yet - I am contacting the conference site to find out
- The wikis we would like to allow account creation for are Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons
- Here is the link to the Wiki page discussing the event (Women Archivists Roundtable Wikipedia Edit-a-thon): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup_Women_Archivists_Roundtable_Edit-a-thon
