Portal location mismatch

Curious about the general level most users of OPR put into suggesting new locations. I just reviewed a 2 nominations in a row that were misplaced by several hundred feet. In both cases, I considered giving 1* reviews (for location mismatch) but the nominations were otherwise solid and 4-5* per OPR guides.

Should I give the submitter the "benefit of the doubt" and give a high rating with a location edit or simply 1* and move on? Unfortunately, with "agreements," it matters to me what everyone else will do so I want to be within the community standards.

Thanks in advance!

    Most of those nominations are from pogo or ingress when they want couch portal. Every time i got one of those nominations, if it is under 50 meters area i put the correct location, but if is not visible, i will not look for all the streets where to mark the correct location and I give them 1 start.

    I have definitely seen examples of couch/desk nominations. If it maliciously looks like they've put it inside of a business/house for ease of access, I 1* it.

    One of the ones I was mentioning above was a skate half-pipe but they put the location on the other side of the park at the entrance. Easier to get to, but nowhere near a sign or the rink.

    The other was a business, but they put the location on the opposite side of the block, several businesses away. Because there was an existing portal, I believe it was off location to ensure it wouldn't be in the same S2 level 17 cell and would come into PoGO.

    If you can see where its meant to be, and its a valid candidate, then move the pin to the correct location.

    The system is there so you can move it if you can see and know where its meant to be.

    Mismatched location is for when its not where its suggested and you cant see where it is meant to be, its not for use if you can see where it is meant to be but cant be bothered to move the pin
