It's been a very long time! I'm sorry I missed you in the chat. I just downloaded DragonVale World and am looking to give it a shot. How's life?
This is quite a confusing matter. The wording of the procedures and the history of past nominations seem to indicate otherwise. It states "Anyone can nominate someone as a candidate to become an administrator, but nominations will only be accepted for candidates who meet certain conditions" and "[t]he candidate needs 3 other users to vouch for him/her within a week." What Bane said was never documented, so I think we should look into clarifying the procedure especially since the history of past nominations had 1 nomination and 3 vouches.
Let me know what you think. I left your edit as is for the time being until the matter is clarified. In any case, I'm pretty certain someone else will provide the last vouch within the 1 week (fingers crossed)!
Update: Looks like Awesome received the third vouch he needed. As mentioned previously, we really should look into clarifying the wording of the procedure if need be.
