#33637 - Carl’s First Day on the Internet - 2022

  1. Drop ID
  2. Community information
  3. Nature of the event
    Celebrating my very first followers in my twitter community with a simple, free commemorative POAP.
    Here’s the post where my followers claim a POAP https://twitter.com/CarlTheDoodle/status/1504193577424891905?s=20&t=aX7sYmxU0VUGNim4YaS8rA
  4. Distribution plan
    Manually with unique links. I’m replying to each of my follower DMs with a unique link. They are aware I will be DMing them this link.
  5. Why do you believe this petition is being held?
    Not sure. Maybe because I’m brand new to Twitter? Hope this is enough info, as my followers are waiting!

Hey @carlthedoodle

The Curation Body made a negative review of your petition since it doesn’t quite comply with the POAP Quality Guidelines.

The POAP Foundation frowns on overly superficial forms of engagement farming. POAPs as a reward for promotional activities (like generic social media engagement, or simply joining a community) are usually rejected in absence of further information for consideration.

Looking forward to reviewing more of your petitions in the future!

All the best,
The POAP Curation Body

Hey fiorescan, thanks for the reply.

This isn’t for engagement farming. I explicitly mentioned in the linked post that there was no need to engage or follow me.

I feel I didn’t explain this drop well enough, so here’s a better description:
I’m one of the first NFTs to make a social media account, and this is to commemorate the event: my first day on the internet. I just happen to be giving them to my very first followers who were here to witness it and support me…

Let me know how I can get this over the finish line, and I hope you’re having a creative day :heart:

If it helps, I found a similar POAP approved on poap.delivery. Except my post doesn’t ask for any engagement at all, while this one requires retweeting, following, and posting ENS.

FYI I’ve updated the POAP description to better describe the event. Hope that helps!

Hey @carlthedoodle

Once the POAP is negatively reviewed, we can’t change the status. You could re-submit the petition, but I can’t promise it will be positively reviewed.

As you’re planning to distribute the POAPs now, anyone can send you a DM and get a free POAP. This only attracts farmers (people who are only interested in getting free NFTs) and not real members of your community.

I suggest to create an event with your community to celebrate and reward every participant with a POAP.

POAPs are minted as an attestation to a collector’s attendance (physical, virtual, or spiritual) at an event; a gift from issuers to collectors which acknowledge the non-material (and yet, invaluable) contributions that members of a community contribute to its collective health. POAPs can be issued for special events and memorable moments of all sizes, physically or virtually, provided good cause to do a drop.

Hope this helps to understand the value of POAP and how to use the protocol.

All the best,
The POAP Curation Body
