Point 2 says "Event coordinators should set the expiry time of the confirmed user right to no more than ten days from the time it is granted." But users are autoconfirmed after four days anyway and so confirmed status should not expire after this time has passed. If there's expiry then you'd get flip-flopping of the user status which would tend to confuse new users. In my experience of attending many outreach events, all the attendees are likely to be good faith users and so, if an event coordinator vouches for them, they should be accepted as confirmed. For example, see the recent event at the UK's National Archives.

We should stick with the landing page and not go direct to the Article Wizard. The trouble with these discussions is that they are dominated by users involved in the AfC/NPP process. They generally have a hostile attitude to new users and content because they are exposed to the worst of it. Myself, I am more focussed on outreach and content creation. Typically these are events like editathons which recruit new users to add content about people such as women scientists. Such events stay well away from the AfC and its processes because they are a massive drag on getting things done. The focus in such events is getting content into main space and the sandbox is the preferred staging point.
