The following are the most common reasons drops are rejected, in order of frequency:
  1. 1.
    Engagement Farming: POAPs as a reward for promotional activities (like generic social media engagement, or simply joining a community) are usually rejected, in absence of further information for consideration.
  2. 2.
    Poor Drop Execution: Drops are rejected in cases where issuers appear incapable of distributing POAPs to collectors responsibly. This may be due to platform issues, overly ambitious logistical endeavors by new issuers, or simply historical evidence.
  3. 3.
    Low Production Quality: POAPs are collector’s items, and, as such, should be developed with a certain degree of care. Low quality or duplicative artwork is often rejected by the POAP Curation Body.
A respectful, professional, and collaborative relationship between issuers and curators is vital for the health of the POAP ecosystem. The foundation of this relationship is a mutual understanding of the Guidelines. If issuers wish to appeal a rejection, they should open the chat bubble in the lower-right corner of all POAP websites and follow the instructions.
Ultimately, the final determination of whether a petition is approved rests with the POAP Curation Body, as the stewards of the POAP ecosystem.
