    Have you set your home and bonus locations correctly, and have you recently been to the USA?

    Both my home and bonus locations are like 20km's from here and haven't left the country in years :/

    I have this issue. I am in the UK and my 2 points are within 15 miles of each other, but I get nominations from all over the country, as well as France which I can’t even read! Now run out is skips for French ones too.

    That's normal. Some of the UK review cells overlap with Northern France. So people in Northern France will get submissions from the South of the UK to review as well.

    You should use Google translate to review them rather than skipping them. It does a pretty good job of translating French to English. It might take a few seconds longer to copy and paste the text into another tab that has translate open, but it's not a major inconvenience.

    If you ever played in the USA then your review location may have gotten stuck there. This mostly happens if you played ingress somewhere years ago and then switched to pogo and have not opened your ingress account again. Ingress "recent" activity seems to trump pogo activity, so to fix this open ingress (or create an account if you don't have one) and hack a portal in your current location. This should refresh your wayfarer review location within a few minutes. DO NOT delete your ingress account since Niantic has an issue with their system and an voluntary account deletion looks the same as being permanently banned in a game. Feel free to delete the app though if you don't want to play. Local review areas are very large and cover about 200+ km so you will still see things far away but it should be limited to your current country/region. Setting your review areas close together does nothing to increase your chances of voting on local things but does limit the number of reviews you can see. If you ever run out of reviews ask to change your home and bonus area since you misunderstood what they meant.
