Lift IP rate limit - Editathon (WMCL) - 2017-06-16
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Wikimedia Chile, the local chapter in Chile, will host an outreach event at Santiago on June 16th.

This event is an Editathon in an University who involves new users, editors and teachers in this education center. The newcomers will edit in Spanish and English Wikipedia.

We are expecting about 100 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 their teacher and veteran volunteers from Wikimedia Chile chapter.

So, I request lift the IP rate limit around 7 hours (between 15:00 UTC - 22:00 UTC ; 11:00 CLT - 18:00 CLT)

Timeframe: June 16 2017 15:00 UTC to June 16 2017 22:00

Attendees: 100

Thanks in advance
