#23738 - People DAO PIP1 Voter POAP - Linking to Snapshot plugin

People DAO issues POAPs to members who vote on our Snapshot proposals as proof of participation in DAO governance. PIP1 proposed this tradition and received overwhelming support. We celebrate these members with a POAP.

Hey @MatterTurbulent! Thanks for submitting a petition for us to link to Snapshot plugin.

We’re taking a look now and will get back to you as soon as possible — we appreciate your patience :pray:

One additional piece of information which should have been in the original post. We are participating in POAPathon’s campaign that uses pogs to advertise at ETHDenver. We opened a contest to designers. We received many great designs and we repurposed one of the runner-ups for this People DAO PIP1 Voter POAP.

@Fio, any updates?

Hey @MatterTurbulent, sorry for the delay.

The Curation Team has reviewed your request and concluded that this is not an acceptable usage of POAP. Voting just to get a POAP is not a good use of the protocol.

Hey @Fio,

I respect the team, but I just want to make the use of the POAP clear. We know people in web3, our DAO included, love POAPs. Thus the core team at the DAO has been offering POAPs as an incentive to vote, but also a proof of voting which could unlock future benefits (aka, the most active members might be further rewarded or perhaps leaned on for other governance matters).

The Snapshot proposal I mentioned in my POAP request is the vote that actually set this tradition. So does the POAP team take offense to giving voters a POAP for voting on a proposal to issue POAPs to voters? Or does the team have issue with us ever giving POAPs to voters as proof of and reward for voting? Sorry if that’s confusing…

Hey @MatterTurbulent

As you mentioned, POAPs have proven to be a fantastic community-building tool for enhancing engagement and signaling active members.

In this case, the Curation Body concluded that this is not an acceptable usage of POAP as it is a vote just to get a POAP.

You are welcome to use POAP with your community, but offering them as an incentive to vote and not only just to receive the POAP.

I hope I have clarified your doubts.

The POAP Curation Body.

Yes, thank you. As I understand it, giving POAPs out as incentives to vote is fine, so long as the proposal isn’t regarding issuing POAPs to DAO members.

Hey @MatterTurbulent , apologies for the misunderstanding - I strongly suspect there’s been some sort of confusion. This process is still being worked out, so thanks for bearing with us.

I don’t seem to see your petition anywhere in the back end, but I suppose that might be because the snapshot integration is usually handled manually by someone on our team. On the other hand, POAPs for on-chain activity are commonly granted using POAP delivery; I’m not sure whether the Snapshot plugin will serve to link people who participated in previous voting.

Let me see what I can do here.
