Fake Nominations Crashing Wayfarer Rating

I'm from Belize, our population is small and our Wayfarer population even more so. Therefore, a lot of what we get to review are nominations from nearby Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and some from South Yucatan.

I'm not exaggerating when I say 95% of their nominations are fake. There's a mural on the wall of every house apparently. So obviously I reject these fake nominations as abuse. It takes less than a minute to compare the photos to the area and notice it can't possibly exist there but I still have to wait ages to not trigger a cooldown which still happens sometimes anyway.

The issue is that these communities obviously have much larger Wayfarer groups and will easily outnumber my rejection, causing my rating to plummet because I'm "disagreeing" with everyone.

I don't want to get banned and risk not being able to nominate any more, because I'm the most active nominator in my community. I tried going through the help tab in Wayfarer but that was useless. I don't know what else to do.

    If you think they are fake or on someone’s house reject.

    if you are sure they are fake then start to report as abuse.

    If you haven’t set your bonus location you could pick somewhere that you believe won’t have the fakes. The system will then give you some from that location to review - so your rating may be better.

    If you don't need the upgrades and you're worried about being banned, you can stop reviewing when you find one of those nominations that you're worried about. Switch to any other task and come back 30 minutes later so that nomination has expired and you'll get a new one.
