I don´t know why the petition was rejected. And I consider the petition should be held.
The Spanish community organize Twitter Spaces every two or every week.
We are working in increase the community and engage people. We consider that poap is a very important way to have this engagement.
In fact, we organize poap raffles with the poap that we distribute.

Hello @lore

You have received a positive review of your petition for 100 mint links.

Curators made a negative review of your Secret Word petition.

One of the things that POAP has been heavily working on is eliminating the farmers of the ecosystem. As explained in the POAP Glossary , farming is the act of collecting POAPs from events/activities in which the collector did not actually participate.

In the last weeks, the Curation Body discussed POAP pre-announcements. What’s that?
Publishing on Social Media that there will be a POAP for participating in an event.

We concluded that pre-announcing there will be a POAP for attending an online event is against the POAP Quality Guidelines since it attracts farmers –people that are only after free NFTs and don’t really care about a project or community.

Pre-announcing the POAP doesn’t only attract farmers, but also it seems to be used as an engagement farming activity. 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” is basically a marker of engagement farming.

POAP is a curated ecosystem for the preservation of memories. POAPs can be issued for special events and memorable moments of all sizes, physically or virtually, provided there is a good cause. Issuing a POAP is more a “Hey, thanks for coming! Here’s a POAP for your time and passion for this project”, when an incorrect thought would be “Hey come to my event and I’ll give you a POAP!”

You pre-announced the POAP on your Twitter page which is a violation of the POAP Quality Guidelines as noted above.
