Lift IP rate limit - Santiago Editatón - 2015-04-11 and 2015-04-12
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

`The local chapter (WM-CL), will host an outreach event at Santiago on April 11th and 12th, 2015.

This event will include an Edit-a-thon (will start on April 11th and might end on April 12th), with editors working together to learn or improve their editing skills, and then to create or improve articles related to science and tecnology, primaraly in Spanish Wikipedia (it could involve Ensligh Wikipedia).

We are expecting about 50 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 some active editors.

Could I please request you to remove the 7 username in a 6 hour period limit with these details?

Thank you very much.

Deployed during Morning SWAT.

@3BRBS You're welcome.

Sorry to bother, but the main organizer at the venue just informed me some minutes ago, that the College where the edit-a-thon is happening has changed the public IP to:

200.1.20.156

Can this IP be added or modified?

Thanks a lot!
