The above patch will allow to filter username, new username, status (on closed queue) and limit. I don't think it's that useful to be able to search by performer (already searchable through Special:Log) and wiki (all global accounts now) is.

@MarcoAurelio: can you expand on why being able to search by performer would be useful?

@MarcoAurelio: can you expand on why being able to search by performer would be useful?

If you wish to review the actions of a certain steward or global renamer, for example. Also useful to get stats, because rejecting requests is also global rename activity (and remember that global renamers do get removed if they're inactive). Regards.

Glaisher removed a project: Patch-For-Review.

Merging the task above of mine regarding the same issue. It'd be good to have more search options enabled as stated above. Thanks.
