I run ShoutWiki's Customer Support Team, but in addition to that, I also work on the various MediaWiki-related things we at ShoutWiki use.

ShoutWiki is indeed not consensus-operated and individual wikis' settings generally speaking need consensus only from the existing community (if any); "global consensus" just isn't something that's a thing over here.

Haven't done an in-depth review of the extension in question, although it would appear that the quality of BlueSpice extensions has significantly improved since I last took a look at one of 'em. Yay!
Hi @Brianna82 and apologies for the late reply!

Hi @Brianna82, thanks for filing this request! One thing I'd like to ask you right away: are these requests for all of ShoutWiki or for a single wiki? (If the latter, can you provide its URL/subdomain?)
Pretty sure this got done ages ago as well.
This was done ages ago.
Down to one core hack, the AJAX page watching one, as of Q1/2019. Should really figure out a way to get rid of that and then Aurora would be a nice, stand-alone skin that requires no core hacks whatsoever...
DumpsOnDemand is old and abandoned and won't be revisited anytime soon.
LookupContribs v. 2.0 fixed this for LookupContribs, but as discussed on IRC, we'll need that schema change to the lookupcontribs table to be able to make MultiLookup use LC's dataset.
This is hopefully now done. It's not exactly the cleanest file out there, but...

Nice catch, thanks!
The wiki should now be usable. Again, sorry for the inconvenience! Please let us again know if you run into something that seems out-of-place or simply broken.

Hi @jcbynum1 and thanks for the detailed bug report with reproduction steps -- we really appreciate taking the time to write how to try reproducing the bug! Right now the MediaWiki 1.32 database upgrades and all are still running in the background, which causes an increased load on the server, which you may have noticed as slower page loads and an increased "sluggishness" in general. As @lewiscawte noted on a similar forum thread on ShoutWiki Hub, we believe that the issue you're experiencing is connected to that and we expect the wiki creation wizard to work again once the database upgrades are done.

Firstly, is this the right place to make this request?
Yup, this works. Alternatively you can also email us, either via Special:Contact or directly (email@example.com) for private matters.

On the other hand, this extension is used on (select) WMF wikis, such as Wikimedia Commons, so it's code-reviewed and guaranteed to be compatible with recent versions of MW.
However, we have a very similar extension -- HAWelcome -- already, which supports SocialProfile, which NewUserMessage doesn't. (See also T68)
