Hello @Kasyap!

I can see that the specified IP address is blocked on English Wikipedia (

I'm guessing that this request is for increasing account creation threshold.

I would love to make a patch for increasing the limit to a specified IP address, but I think that you'll have to request English Wikipedia sysops to unblock that IP address (@Urbanecm please correct me if I'm wrong).

Declining as the date is in the past.

@Kasyap: For future reference, when using Phabricator to manage tasks for an event, please request a dedicated project tag - thanks a lot! :)
