      Description

      I recreate this ticket that was initially MBS-4359 that was renamed and shortsighteddown because I was told long URLs was no problem but it is actually often problematic that the URLs are so ridiculously longer than needed.

      The edit search is generating too long URLs cf.
      It causes problems in various places when we want to share the URL.

      Example URL without even CJK characters in it.

      • IRC was cut off at 441st character, generating en incomplete narrow search
      • IRC chatlogs same URL was cut off at 400th character

      Example with only one criteria : 演唱會 (475 chars URL = 157 useful + 318 BOGUS CHARACTERS ) → LOL=演唱會.

      318 BOGUS CHARACTERS :

      • repeated &conditions.0.name=%E6%BC%94%E5%94%B1%E6%9C%83%EF%BC%88%E4%B8%80%E4%B9%9D%E5%85%AB%E4%BA%8C%E5%B9%B4%E4%B8%80%E6%9C%88%E4%B9%9D%E3%80%81%E5%8D%81%E3%80%81%E5%8D%81%E4%B8%80%E6%97%A5%EF%BC%89%E7%8F%BE%E5%A0%B4%E9%8C%84%E9%9F%B3%E7%8F%8D%E8%97%8F%E7%89%88
      • repeated &conditions.0.=
      • once only &auto_edit_filter=&field=Please+choose+a+condition
      • and other empty parameters maybe specific to other criteria types

      Removing at least "name" parameter is MBS-4359.
