Waiting for POAP approval 26h: #29586 soonperBLOX

Just hoping for an update on review thanks in advance. It’s our first time using POAP as a project.


Your POAP was reviewed with negative results. This is due to it being a 1/1 (Looking like a test drop)

Curation needs more clarity on your drop + best practices.

How you plan to distribute the POAPs?
Tell us more about your community.

These resources will be extremely helpful with future drop requests.

We are an NFT project with 4100 holders and about 3500 users on discord (NounPunks). We’re holding a launch event for a new collection and wanted all our holders to be able to claim a POAP by secret word for being there in our discord during the event. I’m not really sure what you mean by a 1/1. This was our first time attempting to use POAP.xyz for this type of thing so this is a little disappointing. If it’s not possible for us to use your service, I guess we’ll mint the POAP ourselves on Ethereum instead but we were hoping to be able to use your app since we had heard it was very user friendly.

Hey @Toadyhawk

Thanks for clarifying!

If you intend to distribute with a Secret word, the amount of mint links requested should be minimal.

I will send this information to Curators and let you know once they have review your petition.

Can we please get an update on this? Has now been over a week just to get a simple and straightforward POAP approved with secret word delivery. Finally got the event approved after three attempts, and now 4 days later still no response regarding secret phrase. Pls help

Hey :wave: , sorry for the delay

Secret Word is not a good option for a past event. For past events, you can distribute via mint links or Delivery.

Can you please re-submit your petition?

You want us to distribute 4200 POAPs by individual links? And it’s only a “past event” now because it took almost 10 days to get a simple POAP approved… By re-submit your petition, what exactly do you mean… start over for the 4th time?

Sorry but you first submitted a 1-1 POAP petition as Frankie mentioned here: Waiting for POAP approval 26h: #29586 soonperBLOX - #2

A 4,200 codes drop is not ideal for a first-time issuer. Submitting petitions and distributing POAPs may seem easy, but conducting quality drops is an art and a science that requires issuers to deeply understand both the POAP protocol and their community. This knowledge and experience are gained with time, drop-by-drop.

First-time issuers should build up experience by starting with small, low-key events with simple POAP distribution before expanding to larger and/or more ambitious distributions. Before submitting a petition, familiarize yourself with the various distribution methods.

I recommend reading the POAP Quality Guidelines and learning about the POAP Distribution methods before submitting another petition.
