When you're running an event, sometimes you want to help lots of people
create accounts on Wikimedia sites.  To prevent spamming/vandalism,
ordinarily there's a cap on the number of accounts that can be created
from one IP address in a single day.  But there's a way to ask for a
temporary removal of that restriction.  The Foundation's Maggie Dennis
has written a quick HOWTO:

and so please feel free to link to it in your outreach HOWTOs, event
planning checklists, and so on.  Thanks, Maggie!
