Hey @stellargate

Welcome to the POAP forum and thank you for your patience!

Q: do you have any info you can share with us about the delivery system you’ve created?

Yes, we developed a new infrastructure of delivering POAPs in Decentraland with our own servers. This basically allows us to send POAPs to users depending on whether they completed key aspects of the game or event. We don’t need the POAP booth. We also now can check for unusual activity which basically will proof first if the user is a human or not. This is a great step forward since now we will make sure we are delivering POAPs to people and not bots. We plan to scale this up for all Decentraland land owners so they can add it to their events

I was sick and unfortunately was not able to respond quicker. If you would be so kind to assist with the approval. We would appreciate it since our event is tomorrow :pray:

Hey @stellargate

TY so much for the info and context. I’m sorry to hear you were sick, hope you feel better now!

Petition 54531 was approved. However, I wanted to warn you about a campaign that’s not aligned with the POAP ethos and that put at risk your reputation as a POAP issuer:

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 the Curation Body guidelines on proper usage of POAP.

Please review the document and let us know if you have any questions.
