Hello @MilkMoney

Would you please provide some social media links that pertain to the bounty hunting season 1?

This is a link to our official Twitter pages announcement for the bounty campaign.

Also I would be interested in speaking with some one on the POAP team. Would like to discuss how to prevent delays like this from happening. I am glad to see POAP having stricter criteria and taking more notice on the poap farming that exists.

Also would like to talk about POAPs being or going “green”

Thank you for looking into this matter for me.

I was wondering if there was someone on the team I could have a call with to discuss future use and how to prevent errors in the future and become a trusted issuer.

Hello @MilkMoney

You can make a post surrounding this in the Community section of Discourse.

I would like to be connected with a team member directly. It seems like it has been difficult to speak with some on the team on this matter, and instead I am consistently being referred to discourse which is where I placed my appeal.

Is there any particular reason why I am unable to have contact with a team member who is on the poap curating team?

Hey @MilkMoney

Please be aware that this conversation is being carried out directly with the Curation Body.

Also, that there are other sections of Discourse that are being used to collect the questions, concerns and kudos of the POAP Community.

The intent of Discourse is to create a place where important questions and topics such as the ones you raise can be discussed.

Also please review:

As this will be a valuable resource as you create future drop petitions.

All the Best,
The POAP Curation Body

Also please feel free to reach back out to the person with whom you were speaking on Discord.

They represent a resource that we recommend folks to and will be able to assist you going forward with creating your POAP drops.

All the Best,
The POAP Curation Body

Yes the person whom you are referring to is a paid 3rd party, but POAP was intended to be free to use I thought?

I am still awaiting the review and acceptance of my POAP submission. How long can I expect for this process to take?

I am still waiting for your response. It has been nearly a full week now since I began the review process.

Can we come to a resolution on this? I fail to see where my distribution method would be less than effective and from what I have read so far, my use case is in line with the poap ethos.

Hey @MilkMoney

We’re happy to check on the status of your petition.

We’re taking a look now and I will get back to you with a determination from the Curation Body.

Hey @MilkMoney

Curators made a negative review of your petition.

When we say that POAP is an ecosystem for the preservation of memories, we intend for POAPs to be mementos of a particular experience. A part of the core value proposition of POAPs is that they are a souvenir your get simply for doing something you generally like to do in your life – there is no particular transactional incentive.

“Engagement farming” is generally defined as issuers using POAPs in a way that incentivizes transactional behavior. Any statement to the effect of “Do X to get a POAP” – particularly where X is an action that boosts performance in social media algorithms – is basically a marker of engagement farming.

“Like to get a POAP”
“Follow to get a POAP”
“Tweet about it to get a POAP”

these all violate Issuer Guidelines on proper usage of POAP.

Please read the documentation and let us know if you have any questions.

All the best,
The POAP Curation Body

Thank you for your response, I would like to inquire why there has been a change in what is an acceptable way to issue and use POAPs. Previously this had never been a problem. We are quite literally stating that if you participate you receive a poap which is clearly in line with POAP. Proof of attendance, being they took part in an event, which mind you is a green initiative.

How is this any different then stating you will receive a POAP for attending an in person event or any other virtual one, such as a twitter spaces? I am quite literally stating that if you take part in our bounty season you will receive a poap, which again is no different than if you join a twitter spaces or an AMA or office hours, you will receive a poap. I would say that you would want to make sure that someone has actually attended or participated before they can receive a POAP.

I ask that you reconsider as we believe this falls under the ethos of what POAP is intended for, also we employ one of the most secure methods for POAP distribution.

I would like to state that I have poured over the issuer guidelines and nowhere does it state the reasons you’ve listed as being irregular or unacceptable. I want to work with the Curation Body towards a solution, however, I would like to point out that I was working within the realm of the guidelines the curation body has put out. I think it is only reasonable and fair to allow my POAP submission to be approved or perhaps adjust some qualifications of the POAP to be more aligned. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

This is not a precious collectible.

Hey @MilkMoney

The most important questions here are:
What the event is about and why do you consider it memorable?

If you take a look at our Quality Guidelines, there’s a mention of “unremarkable events”.

POAP can’t be used for engagement farming campaigns. POAPs as a reward for promotional activities (like generic social media engagement, or simply joining a community) are usually negatively reviewed in absence of further information for consideration.

The Event is memorable in the same way any POAP for attending an AMA is, in fact I would argue more so due to our community going out and picking up trash as a part of the overall event. Each season our community takes part in has a direct impact on the environment around them in a positive way. I would say it is as memorable as any other widely accepted POAP submission.

Also I have asked multiple people a number of times what I can do to help bring this event even further in line with POAP ethos. I have still not received an answer to that question. I have offered concessions on removing the Retweet portion to our season. Ultimately I feel like there should be a way to find some common ground and move this POAP forward.
