#1317 Delivery approval

Hi! I was wondering when the approval of this POAP delivery will be getting through. The last couple of deliveries I’ve done were approved within a few hours. Did I do something wrong?

Thanks in advance.


We are taking a look & will review this shortly.

Can you also provide the Event ID?

Also, do you know about POAP.gg ? It would be a great fit for your use case!

All the best,
The POAP Curation Body

Hey, thanks for the reply, frankie!
The event ID is: #26687

Oh my, I’m going to check that POAP.gg out, thanks for the tip!

Aaaaaany news, by any chance? @frankie :innocent:

Hey @plushy,

Your drop is nice, but the petition doesn’t comply the POAP Quality Guidelines.

It was noticed that most of the addresses from the Delivery were from POAP farmers.

For your community & ours farming doesn’t add value.
Farmers are only after Free NFTs, they add no community value or engagement. We want to make sure POAPs only are given to true community members & actual participants.

Here are some resources that might be helpful for future drops:

Hey @Fio ,

How is that possible?

We are aware of POAP farmers and do everything currently possible to make sure they don’t get our exclusive POAPS. We do a manual selection of these addresses every single time and make sure people engage with our streams, post a screenshot as proof (with their nickname visible) in a very specific discord channel that is open for only 15 minutes.

If anything, they’re putting in quite the effort.

So, what’s next? Could you maybe disclose the addresses that are being frowned upon? So that I can remake the drop for the other people? What’s the best plan of action here.

Thanks in advance.

It seems farmers discover your event as it was public and they left their addresses to claim the POAP :frowning:

Did you collected the addresses via a Google form or something similar? A good practice is to use the form not only to collect the addresses, but also to ask a question to the audience, a difficult one that could only be answered by the real participants.

For future events:

  • Remember to mark your event as private
  • Find another method to collect the addresses

You can always contact our Customer Support team for extra guidelines. You can chat with them via the chat bubble at the POAP website: https://poap.xyz/

Not through a form, but we directed people to a specific channel where they had to post proof by the means of a screenshot.

Is it possible to get the wallets from the farmers? I’ll exclude them from the delivery request and will try again without 'em. Unless there’s a better way to get the POAPs distributed to the people that actually meant well?

Hi @Fio , what do you suggest? Do I try again?

Hey @plushy,
Once you submitted a petition, you can’t edit it. I’m sorry about that.

I suggest to create a new drop only if you can prove that you have the addresses of the real participants.
