Unfortunately I do not believe this would be possible because it is a BlueSpice extension, and Miraheze does not currently support BlueSpice. Someone else should confirm this though.

This is likely just a caching issue.. sometimes it can take MediaWiki a bit of time to fully process bulk actions. Please let us know if the issue does not resolve itself soon.

AmandaCath triaged T11004: Database errors on "distrowiki.miraheze.org" as Normal priority.

I'm able to view the files without issue. Media Viewer has been known to randomly show error messages sometimes if you go too quickly (this even happens on Wikipedia from time to time). My suggestion is to make sure the page where the file is displayed is fully loaded before attempting to open the image in Media Viewer. If you immediately click on the image thumbnail after opening a page, it can error like that.

AmandaCath closed T10960: Extension Request as Declined.

Although I'm not SRE (yet), I'm going to boldly decline this. For starters, according to the documentation page, the latest version of this extension requires MediaWiki 1.40, which Miraheze may or may not be able to support due to the current shortages of technical volunteers. Secondly, it appears that the upstream developers are looking to merge the functionality of EasyTimeline into the Graph extension (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T137291), which Miraheze already supports and will likely re-enable once upstream security issues are fixed. Finally, due to the aforementioned lack of technical volunteers right now, getting a security review of this extension would take a long time. This might be able to be revisited once Miraheze is running MediaWiki 1.40 though, since the upstream merger proposal has been open for several years with no concrete progress.

AmandaCath closed T10952: Add globally new protection "extendedconfirmed" to edit through it as Declined.

Going to boldly decline this as I just don't see the need for this on a global scale, and large portion of SRE is currently inactive. Individual wikis are free to do this if they wish, but I don't think there's any specific reason why it would be needed globally. IMO, the fewer global features the better, since it allows wikis to customize more. SRE, please reopen this task if you feel otherwise.

AmandaCath added a comment to T10931: [ACCESS REQUEST]: New access for AmandaCath.

For the record, the globally banned user in question was my late sister, who unleashed a spambot attack against Miraheze on more than one occasion after being banned. Because we were living together at the time, it was next to impossible to distinguish us from each other in terms of technical data/CheckUser. But I was completely uninvolved and took no part in encouraging her disruptive actions. I'd also appreciate it if this wasn't discussed further at this time.

AmandaCath edited projects for T10902: Enable Screenplay on middlekid.miraheze.org, added: Extensions; removed MediaWiki.

The extension documentation states that it is compatible with MediaWiki 1.39, so I think it would work on Miraheze. However, the last manual update to the code was 5 months ago, so I would caution to make sure that the developers/authors are indeed actively maintaining this upstream especially with MW 1.40 coming up soon. The code itself will also need a security review.

Unfortunately because user accounts are global, it isn't possible to require accounts be confirmed on just one local wiki (since this confirmation requirement would be circumvented quite easily by simply creating an account on a different wiki and then navigating to your wiki). The functionality you want is possible in MediaWiki (see this page for more details), but this functionality is not currently possible on Miraheze.
