We disabled that because the spambots were quite active on test3wiki. Nevertheless, I've reenabled it now.

Triaging as medium for now; feel free to escalate, if desired.

@Dzahn Gyaanipedia is not a separate wiki farm, despite the name and number of Gyaanipedias. It is actually a series of Gyannipedia wikis hosted by Miraheze; therefore, Gyannipedia wikis are already included here

While kind of messy, and not sure if it's related to the other two downstream tasks, there does seem to be a workaround for https://phabricator.miraheze.org/T7099 / https://phabricator.miraheze.org/T7099 whereby when the writeapi is added to the * group, the issue is resolved. If not able to easily resolve, it might be nice to have StructuredDiscussions return a user friendly error message like, "Please add the writeapi user right to the all users (*) user group," or something maybe?

Adding User-RhinosF1 project and moving on that workboard to Miraheze Linked, as we're quite curious when this bug will be fixed. All local log entries have the performers and targets updated following a global rename, so why not global log entries, such as the global rights log?

Adding User-RhinosF1 project

👍 This would definitely be a useful feature, particularly for monitoring users that have requested multiple renames. I'm not sure how often this occurs on the Wikimedia projects, but it certainly does happen fairly often on non-Wikimedia projects. Should we re-add this idea to the community wish list for 2021?

@RhinosF1 mentioned that I should be able to manually add the four tildes (~~~~) as my signature, which I hadn't initially considered. It's less ideal, as I do feel this shouldn't be too difficult to resolve this bug by having the extension check for an unclosed <small> tag and close any <small> tags present in the reply, but is still an acceptable workaround; however, upon further testing, the four tildes (~~~~) is simply added to the auto-added signature that the extension adds. So, as a secondary or in addition to fix, the extension should check for any four tildes already in the reply and, if present, not add a signature.

Completely agree with @Reception123. I'd actually like to see Special:ActiveUsers improved to be a full-fledged special page, capable of being linked to via Special:ActiveUsers/role and/or transcluded into wiki pages.

@Aklapper There's a clear use case here. Respectfully, MediaWiki does not revolve around Wikimedia (and the inverse is also true, too). There are many other organizations and wiki farms, including Miraheze, that use MediaWiki. I am one of those users who feels this is useful. If two or more users feel it would be useful, there's a use case, in my opinion. Moreover, this doesn't strike me as particularly problematic to implement; thus, the threshold for the use case is comparably lower than something that is complex or would require a significant rewrite.
@Reception123 Can you fix the typo in my username in your original post?

Okay, it looks like when I was updating my global preferences from within English Wikipedia, I was enabling some preferences that can be set globally and must've accidentally enabled that English Wikipedia-only "Temporarily disable the visual editor while it is in beta" option (when I meant to untick the second box). In my troubleshooting, I set a local exception by unticking that second box, and it wouldn't let me untick it (since it had been set globally, I guess). When I went back in to Special:GlobalPreferences, I was able to unselect that option, then unselect the local exception in Special:Preferences. It's not very clear, so perhaps the wording of the first and second checkboxes next to each preference item could be clearer in a future release. Nevertheless, doing that restored my ability to use the new wikitext editor.
I further removed the CharInsert gadget and, just to clarify or reiterate, have disabled Reference Previews globally and locally. I have Navigation Popups enabled, but also disabled the ReferenceTooltips gadget.

Thanks for the quick reply and update, @Reedy. I appreciate that the "or by namespace" isn't possible due to the way in which the short URLs are stored in the database. That idea isn't really necessary anyway.
I came here to open a task to create this feature request, but saw it already exists. Can we retriage this request to medium priority? Creating a special page to list all short URLs on a wiki or by namespace would be very helpful for managing unnecessarily created short URLs.
