Lift IP rate limit - Santiago Wikipedia editing workshop - 2015-04-22
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The local chapter (WM-CL), will host a Wikipedia editing workshop event at Santiago on April 22th, 2015.

This event will include an editing workshop (will start on April 22th), with new editors working together to learn or improve their editing skills, primaraly in Spanish Wikipedia.

We are expecting about 20 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?

Will you be writing about time machines by any chance?

Aklapper, yes we appologize for the late request, but the university provided the IP just today. We always advice that at least a week is required to request the IP rate limit lift, sometimes it does not happen on time.

And yes Krenair, it was a typo: April 22th 2015, 04:00 UTC to April 22th, 2015 to 17:00 UTC

Thanks for claiming the task so promptly.

3BRBS set Security to None.

In case this doesn't work, you can always try to create accounts at other wikis and then login at eswiki and eswiki.
