So, I often find myself doing outreach related to enwiki before large groups, and while I have no interest in becoming a sysop, could really use the Account Creator permission. Is there really no page to publicly request this? The instructions cited below, taken from here, suggest so, but that just feels broken. I don't like the idea of privately reaching out to some admin for this permission.
