Hello, the email notification says I’ve been granted 150 links using secret code on 26513 however most of our participants are getting ‘Page reached limit error’
Here’s the confirmation of 150 allocation
The way of distribution was through our twitter space and we announced code in mid of discussion. I know the issue of farmers but whats the best way to distribute then even if we try to avoid as much as we can and be sensible in distributing there will still be one or two.
Looks like your drop got farmed and that’s why the real participants couldn’t mint it.
For your community & ours farming doesn’t add value.
Farmers are only after Free NFTs, they add no community value or engagement. We want to make sure POAPs only are given to true community members & actual participants.
POAP is an ecosystem for the preservation of memories. The protocol is designed for facilitating individuals create records of the activities they joined by minting nice collectibles. It’s important that farming is eliminated because otherwise the protocol is not a reliable source of truth about who was actually part of an event.
Some tips for future drops:
- Use a difficult secret word
- Limit the time to mint the POAP (10 minutes should be fine for a Twitter Space)
You can also use other distribution methods. Here you can find some useful resources:

This error was coming out even if the total mint was at 40, this was 10mins after we gave out the code and we are conscious we were allocated 150. This isn’t the first time
Were those events public?
How long was the time window for minting?
You might not be aware of this, but we have quite some problems with farmers, they try to mint POAPs from events they didn’t attend, sometimes even using bots to automate this process.
Best practices for large distributions are to leave the minting window open for a relatively short timeframe and make the events private. Sometimes, farmers leak the secret word and that’s why issuers run out of codes very fast.
