I know I can get the answer a lot faster by looking for it myself than posting and hoping that somebody will take the time to answer. As far as I'm concerned, searching for the answer IS instant gratification.
I would begin by posting it in the wiki, but i can think of several other places we might link it, including the newly updated rules. Also, you can PM Flar (the admin) about adding a link to it from the search page, I don't know how much work it would be, but she would.

I'll write up a full version for the wiki and a paraphrased version that (IMHO) would fit well on the search page.

While I'm not intimately familiar with vBulletin, I think changing/adding content to a static page should be trivial.....but it's up to the powers that be if they think it's worth putting it there.

Default Advanced Search Tutorial

I posted the search tutorial on the wiki at How to use Advanced Search on XDA-Developers Forum

All are welcome to comment, fix, post scathing flames regarding typos....whatever. Let me know if I over-formatted it.
