I'm not sure what the original reasoning was behind choosing 6 as the
specific number of accounts for the per IP limit, but it exists to stop the
creation of multiple spam/sockpuppet accounts from one IP.
There's a process you can follow for events if you know in advance the IP
that you're going to be using, see
. However, given that
you're currently doing the training session, I'm happy to give you the
account creator user right for your own account so that you can bypass the
limit by creating new accounts whilst logged into your account by going to
whilst logged in,
filling out details except the password field and clicking the "By e-mail"
Let me know if this is okay (please email me directly) and I'll do it now.

Hi, my name is Rexford
I wish to find out why wikipedia allows only 6 account creation from a
network sharing the same IP address.
I never knew something like that existed.
I'm currently doing a Wikipedia training session and many will like to
create accounts on Wikipedia but we're being blocked.
Any reasons? How to bypass that?
