#67850 Rejected - Appeal Inside

  1. Drop ID

  2. Community information

  3. Nature of the event
    We are celebrating the merge by giving away a poap to my community. The POAP is designed by Lizard Lab’s, Mike Hirshon, and is your on-chain proof and memorabilia that you were here for the historical event of Ethereum’s change to the environmentally friendly Proof-Of-Stake protocol.

  4. Distribution plan
    I shared a link to the Google Form in my Discord server and Twitter account right after the merge (I stayed up for it), to only be open for 24 hours after the merge. This Google Form used bot prevention methods such as a math problem, asking for discord + twitter accounts, and asking for where they found the form. I took this list of submissions and manually removed bot submissions until we had under 400 total submissions, with every address manually verified as a community member.

  5. Why do you believe this petition is being held?
    I think there is a misunderstanding about the bot prevention methods and the intention of the POAP. This is meant to be a badge of honor for our community members who were present in the community within 24 hours of the merge.

Hello @nftmomo

Hey @nftmomo

Thanks for the info and context!

Curators rejected your petition for several reasons:

1- The form is not Proof of Attendance, it’s just proof of completing a form :confused: The form is sharable, and non-participants could fill it out.
2- The form is still open.

POAP is a Curated ecosystem for the preservation of memories. Curators review each petition manually. Memories are humanity’s most valuable asset, and as such, POAP takes their preservation very seriously.

For future petitions:
Please consider hosting an event with your community, could be a Discord stage or a Twitter space. You can give a POAP to all participants.

Let us know if you have any questions!

I understand the gut reaction. However, filling the form out within 24 hours of the merge proves that you were around and active during the merge, which is a noteworthy event.

Since it’s such a broad concept, there aren’t many good ways to prove attendance, which is why I used the form, bot prevention fields, and manual curation.

The form is still open (I’m not sure how to close them) - but the submissions were copied out, and the submission timestamps used to only use the 24-hour period after the merge. Then the manual curation process began to weed out bots and identify real users, which is how we reached the final number of 260 wallets. This took a LOT of manual work in an effort to comply with the guidelines and keep the submissions legitimate.

Due to inactivity, this thread will close if you do not reply soon.

All the best,
The POAP Curation Body
