After discussing with Universal Omega we have decided that it would be too risky to go ahead with what is proposed above. Instead I would propose (however this is something that would have to be discussed with Stewards) to lock all the accounts mentioned above and then to create magic words (if possible) where we can have:

  • the number of total users
  • the number of locked users (and number of unlocked users)
  • the number of users who have made a global edit in the last year

I'm not fully sure this is technically possible but either way I don't think disabling RecentChanges is desirable. This is because it's meant for transparency and without RC actions can be taken in secret (like adding users as admin, etc.) and it would be difficult to track them.
