Restore usage of 'local wiki' field
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Some global renamers and stewards agree that it'd be good if the local wiki field at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:GlobalRenameQueue/open could be repopulated/reused to display on which wiki the request was made. That'll allow GRs/STs to quickly go to the requests comming from wikis where they're familiar with the policies/practices.

Currently the field is empty. The request is to display the db name of the wiki where the rename form was filed and sent.

Thank you.

This will make it easy to handle requests.

As I understand from the code "local wiki" column of Special:GlobalRenameQueue/open page shows if a request is about a local account or a global one. As we are only using global accounts this column is always empty on meta.

That's right. We'd like the field to be used again, this time pointing where the request was initiated. Is that possible? Thanks.

Probably more accurate to say "home wiki" given that is what is used in the requests themselves. I don't believe it tracks where the request actually came from, but I could be wrong.
