I went to the Member Area

This link ("Finding a Userid") does not exist on the Members Area page  
under the "Access to OSGeo services" paragraph (or anywhere else that  
I can see). The only link is "Get a OSGeo user ID here." This is the  
case if I'm logged in or not logged in.

Well, I guess first add a link on the Member Area. A search box on the  
right column that says "Search for an OSGeo Member" would be a good  
way to do this.

Note that I'd also make "User login" a little more prominent. Right  
now, it's in tiny print at the bottom of a very long menu at the left.  
A lot of pages have a user login near the top and center or right,  
with some kind of prominent lettering.
