Open, LowPublic

Description

Description:
The current search function can search only for target and initiator, and cannot accept wildcards. Please allow wildcard or regex searching, and allow searching by wiki (once bug 13789 is done), and allow searching in the reason.

Hmm, a comment,time index will be needed here

aaron added a comment.Aug 14 2008, 4:03 PM

Actually, at least two other indexes would be needed too, since the current ones are on user ID's. This is starting to become a bit much...

Bah, and the comment index needs to be fulltext, which needs a separate non-innodb table.

Closing this as it would be *too* much of a pain for not enough benefit.

Are we sure we can't get a half-decent search on the target at least? That'd be really useful for cases where one doesn't remember the exact name.

Even if we don't get all the searchability we want, we could do with a bit more :)

In order to find recent concerns about a long time sock puppeter, the search form is useless at the moment. This is necessary when doing audit work, and also considering ban appeals.

The only solution right now is to:
a) ask all checkusers if they have done recent related checks, or
b) load a log of the last year and search.

Can you be more specific about the proposed use cases we don't cover currently?

How should a "ban appeal search" look like? How do "audit work" searches look like?

This might help to provide a faster and easier solution to most frequent problems.
