Story about a POAP - Nouns Hack Week behind the scenes ⌐◨-◨

If you have participated in hack week or voted in any of the round, you are elligible

gm. Last week during Nouns Hack Week, there were 293 prop submissions across developers, art design & media, and IRL rounds + 158 in grand prizes. Lotta fun, lotta building, and lotta governance. I created a lil POAP for Nouns Hack Week representing all the nouners and props that were dropped during the week. It's called - Prop Prop Prop POAP. And this blog, is a story about that POAP.

Btw, if you participated by submitting a proposal or voting in any of the rounds, you are eligible to claim this POAP.

I am Salman, one of the participants in Nouns Hack Week, during which I submitted part 1 of and a Nounish POAP tour on the content creation round by The Noun Square.

When I first discovered about Nouns Hack Week, I started brainstorming what my project for the round would be. My initial thought was would it be possible to trace the journey of Nouns DAO through POAPs. I dropped in with a message on Explorer Grants discord server:

I got two answers.

1) I was going to create a POAP for Nouns Hack Week (still hadn't figured who should be minting it though), and this wouldn't be the hack week submission

2) I was gonna do some research on Nouns POAPs, to identify the big idea for hack week

Dropped in on The Noun Square for "research" and it led me to @RobotFishGirl.

After a lil bit of back and forth on the TNS server with RFG, about her favorite POAPs, I slid into her dms and requested if we could get on a livestream. And, pretty soon, we did:

My thinking was to submit this livestream to The Noun Square Content Creation Prop House round. But then, one thing led to another, and RFG suggested what I think was a brilliant idea - a community hack week round:

I quickly spun up a lil design, and created a lil contest on @whoneesdsajobdao

This was a fairly successful contest with 8 submissions.

But, what was I going to submit for the main - Nouns Hack Week rounds? Well, April 1st was supposed to be a Polkadot India Conference. I was gonna attend and record podcasts for #SalmanNeedsAJob. In light of Nouns Hack Week, a lil change of plans, I was going to print out a few Prop Prop Prop POAPs, and find out what my video was going to be about. And as they say, the rest is history:

Back to the POAP - sometime later, I came to a decision (rightly so) about the audience for the POAP, and that was going to be folks who participated in hack week, or voted in one of the rounds. But how do I get the snapshot of that? (thank you index)

And ... that's the story, about a lil POAP called Prop Prop Prop POAP.
