UN Women Editathon in NYC, Aug 12
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We'd like to request a temporary lift of the IP cap for 157.150.62.35 , which is at United Nations Headquarters in NYC, on this Friday August 12, from 9am -5pm Eastern Time.

Wikimedia NYC and others are assisting at this event, Katherine Maher is speaking, and there will be up to 600 new accounts created.

We'd like the cap to be lifted on English Wikipedia and other projects if possible, since this will be a multilingual event at the United Nations.

@Pharos Would enwiki and commonswiki for now suffice, or do you plan to do Wikidata stuff as well?
