The improve date range searches on Special:Contributions project aims to make it search for user contributions in a specific time window.

No one is working on this project at the moment and you are invited to pick it up.


There is no good way to search a window of time in Special:Contributions. You can set a date but then you get from that date and earlier contributions, which is not necessarily helpful. For this feature to be useful users need to be able to search from point A in time to point B in time. This is currently only available by manually adding search strings in the URL, which is both cumbersome and unknown to most editors.
