Where's the link to the search help? Shouldn't it be in the faq? I came to it by accident when I hit enter on an empty search.

Well, it's also in the sidebar of every search result page, but that's a good idea too!

edit: added.

Are there any search options?

Indeed there are. Advanced Super Ninja Search Options no less. Visit the search page to see them … but you must first snatch this pebble from my hand, grasshopper.

Most people would use site search, look in the faq or expect a help link near the action element to find help. None of these are present. Plus, and I assume for many others as well, my eyes tend to ignore non navigational sidebars because they usually contain ads, tag clouds, statistics and non important data. – Tony_Henrich Feb 13 '10 at 1:21
