Lift IP cap on for account creation for MoMA NYC - Saturday March 2, 2019
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Art+Feminism is holding its annual editathon at Museum of Modern Art in NYC in conjunction with Wikimedia NYC, AfroCrowd, and others. We would like to request a temporary lift of the IP cap for the location on this Saturday March 2, 2019, from 10:00 am – 8:00 pm Eastern Time. We expect about 200 editors in attendance. Typically we expect about 50 to 60 new accounts created onsite, but potentially up to 100. Many will be created through the new Dashboard account creation process, but many will just be bold and create their own.



We'd like the cap to be lifted on English Wikipedia

FYI RSVP is here: and dashboard for sign in is here:

Thank you!
