Really Want to Approve More - Any Suggestions?

I have not given anything in Russia a good rating, mostly because their imagery is so poor and I have not yet found anything being submitted in the imagery. I have had playgrounds that qualify but the POI is put at the outside corner of an apartment building and I suspect the playground may be in the internal courtyard but the photo is so blurry I can't see anything. I also get things that have a street view, but too far away from what is being submitted to see what is being submitted. I really want to approve more. Some of these things are good submissions and I feel like I am penalizing them for something out of their control. What are other people doing?

    If the object is likely to be at the location of the pin, but you can't verify due to bad satellite/Street View, blocking buildings, or tree cover, Niantic wants you to 3* the location accuracy.

    If the object can't possibly be at the given location and you can't verify the correct location to move the pin to, that is when I reject for location mismatch. Your example of a playground nomination pinned at the corner of an apartment building may fall into this category if it is clear there is no playground at that corner of the building. I would not want to move a misplaced pin unless I'm very sure the place I'm moving it to is correct.
