Make power user features more discoverable
Open, LowestPublic

Description

We have a lot of features, such as intitle: incategory: namespace: etc. that could help users to make more powerful queries and find what they are looking for, but my intuition is that most users have no clue that these exist. We recently added a link to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Searching which has some of this information, but its buried within a wall of text which I don't feel like most users are going to dig into.

Perhaps there is some way with the design that we can inform users about features in a more friendly and discoverable way?
