Speaker application form for WordCamps blocked when not logged in

Milestone: Priority: high
Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords:


The speaker application form for WordCamps blocks people who aren't logged in with their wordpress.org account. This is a major conversion rate block for getting enough speaker applications. Not everyone has a wordpress.org account cause sometimes people from outside the WordPress community want to give a talk at a WordCamp about more general topics, like the GDPR, marketing or SEO.
