Details

Number of temporary accounts usernames each IP address may acquire per specified period(s). This should be set to a higher value than TempAccountCreationThrottle. On editing, we first attempt to acquire a temp username before proceeding with saving an edit and potentially creating a temp account if the edit save is successful. Some edits may fail (due to core or extensions denying an edit); this throttle ensures that there are limits to the number of temporary account names that can be acquired and stored in the database.
