Lift IP limit - WMCL Editathon 2019-09-27
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Wikimedia Chile, the local chapter in Chile, will host an outreach event at La Serena on September 27th.

This event is an Editathon about local contents held in the Museo Gabriela Mistral in La Serena, Chile.

As we think, we will have a lot of newcomers due the editathon theme, so we are requesting lift the IP rate limit for the event. Our partners are estimating about 50 attendees (veteran, new users, others). The users could edit in Spanish, English Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata, and every time will be helped by the users and volunteers of Wikimedia Chile to don't allow break anything into Wikimedia projects.

So, I request lift the IP rate limit around 6 hours (between 17:00 UTC - 23:00 UTC ; 14:00 CLT - 20:00 CLT)

IP address: (~ 62 hosts)
Timeframe: Sep 27 2019 17:00 UTC to Sep 27 2019 23:00 UTC
Wikipage of the event: TBA -
Attendees: 50

Thanks in advance
