In the Math.SE 2012 Community Moderator Election there are only 2 moderator positions. To me this seems to be too few - considering the amount of questions (51,252).

If I understand correctly the User Experience SE has 3 moderators, and there are less than 5000 questions in total.

So, can someone explain why are there only two moderators on Math.SE? Why not 5, 10 or 20?

There are currently four moderators (Qiaochu, Willie, Mariano, and myself), and the two winners of the election will be added to make a total of six.
