#32114 - error when claiming event live

Hi! I have a secret word claim live right now for 400 POAPs and people are getting errors saying that the page has reached it’s minting limit. Please help there have only been 285 minted!

Hey @apeblocks

Sorry to hear that, it seems your drop got farmed (check out all the addresses with tremendous numbers of POAPs)

Some people could have claimed with their emails and that’s why you see only 308 transfers, instead of 400.

For future drops:

  • Use a random Secret; don’t use a word that is in the title of your drop. For example, for a drop titled “Isabel’s Birthday at Ahupulco,” a secret word like “WeLovePuppies” is fine, but “IsabelAhupulco” is easy to guess and should not be used.
  • Activate the Secret only at the start of your event and deactivate it as soon as it finishes.
  • Only say the word verbally (don’t share it by DM or elsewhere online).

For future drops :point_right: please read the guidelines Curator Guidelines: Creating Quality Drops - #6 and learn about distribution methods. There are various distribution methods to guarantee that your POAPs get into the right hands (only those who shared the experience being commemorated).

All the best,
The POAP Curation Bod
