Edit location - allowable distance.

Is it possible to increase the allowable distance to edit a location? I understand when it was reduced to the current distance, it was to help eliminate fraudulent usage of this function. But at the same time, it is so miniscule that many of the locations I need to propose a move is not feasible. Can the distance be increased even somewhat to help matters?
correct, I've come accross wayspots where the location is 20 to 30m off the actual location.
Ingame we can only correct for about 10m, so I don't bother attempting to change it...
You can use the Location Edit Appeals subforum https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/categories/location-edit
Usually when there is something that needs more than a standard 10m move, I'd have no trouble providing information via a Location Edit Request. Easy layout and structure, and most are pretty easy to spot if it is obvious for the most part.
That being said, it would be nice if select people could have at least a larger allowable distance for location editing.
The potential for abuse still exists, so i is still best that these location edits keep being reviewed by Niantic staff.
I believe I saw a screenshot where these requests are also an option in the chat wizard on the Wayfarer help page, I wonder if they will be completely moved there and off of the forum.
