The event coordinator user group (eventcoordinator user group) gives editors the (noratelimit) right so they can create accounts without being subject to the 6 accounts per IP address limit, and allows editors to temporarily add confirmed status to event attendees with newly created accounts, bypassing the standard four day wait. Confirmed status allows those accounts to directly create new articles, move draft pages to articles, skip CAPTCHA checking when adding links, and upload images. This user group was created primarily in response to a community decision to permanently limit article creation to editors in the confirmed or autoconfirmed user groups.
