Make Advanced Forum Search more obvious

Hopefully this is posted in the right place… just came to Stencyl from a competitor, and have been lurking here a bit and lamenting the lack of Advanced Search for the forums… only to discover after several days that it exists! (At http://community.stencyl.com/index.php?action=search;advanced;.) This allows for sorting, topic title search, subforum search and more, which is great, but I lost it a second time and took much clicking to find again. Am I being dense, or could an 'Advanced Search' link somewhere near to the ubiquitous search box be useful?

If you search for nothing it brings you to a page with a link to advanced search. No idea how else you would find it.

Glad it's not just me! In a similar vein, it's not immediately apparent how to search for a user profile – the search box on a profile page (e.g. http://www.stencyl.com/users/index/382528) turns into 'Search for a User'.

EDIT: formatting.

A few weeks I have been lurking these forums and only now I find out there's an Advanced Search?, yes there should be a small link under the search box, I would never have found that as I deem searching for nothing be be a complete waist of time ... usually lol
