#29710 - Event is live - need approval for secret word

Hi, our event (#29710) is approved and live. We just need approval for our secret word. We plan to distribute during our Twitter Spaces event. Thank you!

Hey @rarebreed,

We’re happy to check on the status of your drop petition, but there is an issue I wanted to bring to your attention:

It was noted that your latest drops may have experienced some farming issues.
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 you can find some tips for distributing POAPs using Secret Word:

  • Use a difficult to guess word

  • Limit the mint period to a tight claim window

  • Don’t share the word via DM

These resources could be helpful for future drops:

Will let you know once I have the resolution from the Curation Body.

Hi @Fio,

Thanks for your feedback. We noticed that too with our first drop and definitely want to work to combat the farming issue on our end as well. We will only communicate the secret orally, never put it in a DM or in text form elsewhere. We set the mint window much tighter this time around for the secret phrase – it’s now just 24 hrs. But we’d be happy to restrict this further if that’s helpful.

Our event is coming up this evening in about 3hrs, so please let us know what we can do to get live. Thanks for your help!

Hey @rarebreed

Unfortunately, the POAP Curation Body made a negative review of your petition for Secret Word.

For future events:
The mint window should be only from 10-15 minutes (or you can turn it off right after the event).

We’re looking forward for reviewing a new petition in the future

The POAP Curation Body
