When using advanced searching and specifically search by field name, there are too many fields listed in the drop down box. There should be a way to limit which fields should appear in this list, and there should be a way to show alternate text but have the query use the true field name.
It is also a hassle finding fields you actually know about. Eg. you cannot type in the word "Body" to locate it, you have to type the letter "B" and then arrow though to the value you want. It really wouldn't hurt to put some polish

Did you mean admin or developer?

the alternate text should be the unimplemented field label: { Link }

I agree with @1 Peter.
Developers are more proper to do this job as they know the meaning of fields.
I thought of implementing that polished version of field search. It's feasible to do in Web as you can modify the page content dynamically to suit the changing field criteria.
