Thank you for this. I have tried setting my own custom key-value pair (e.g. 
using $this->getRequest()->setVal( 'reasonConfirm', 1 );    ), but I cannot 
seem to retrieve it when the page reloads. I've tried both getVal (returns null 
every time) and getInt (always returns '0') to no avail. Is there a special way 
to set your own custom variables?

Interestingly, I have also noticed that my return $this-msg() text is no longer 
displaying at all. When my validation callback is triggered, only the top 
"There are problems with some of your input." appears. I have checked en.json 
and can confirm that the message that should be displayed is still present and 
is properly formatted.

MediaWiki coding conventions is to use the WebRequest object.

In the context of a SpecialPage subclass, you would probably do
$this->getRequest()->getVal( 'reason' );   [Note: This combines both POST
and GET values]

See

for more details.
