Seems like there's really few/no moderators left. Maybe some folks are willing to take up the slack there? Users that come to mind: Happy Now, CDone, Dragonfly, Dave S., Eric 12, Jeff 1, greymouser???

I cannot log in because I need a three letter username before I can enter a new password. The form will not allow me to modify my username so that it has three letters. I no longer see where the "email the moderators" section is.
