Typing it on mobile, so short and maybe too cryptic:
1. Thanks for following https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Ethically_researching_Wikipedia
2. There are two methodology risks/challenges with this e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:SebastianHelm approach that I can see but as per https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:BEAN deem them nonpublic, so ping by Meta mail tool if interested. (Do bear in mind point 6.1 of the reffed Staeiou's ethnographic research protocol then in turn.)
3. In your research do not forget to account also for the "curate ipsum" aka Heisenberg uncertainty principle in view of your "...dominant and colonial modes of knowledge production" etc. enwiki declarations.
