Request for allowance of multiple account registers from same IP for 2018-02-27
Closed, ResolvedPublic



We'll be running a workshop/ edit-a-thon next Tuesday, 27 February 2018, between 10.00 and 17:30 London time. While we expect most of the participats to have their accounts already created at that time, I would like to request an allowance of multiple account registers from same IP for that date and time, just in case we have some last minute participants without accounts.

Due to the nature of the wi-fi on the room where the workshop will take place, we will only know the IP range next Monday.

Can someone please help with this?
