Should local knowledge matter?
I might not be the first to wonder this but I couldn´t find an answer. -Sorry if it´s a double post!
Should I take into consideration local knowledge when voting?
For instance: I got to review a nomination for some street art which seems ok, but since it is in my own town I know for a fact that it´s temporary and will be exchanged for other motives over time. -Someone without that knowledge would probably have approved the nomination.
My concern is that if I give one star based on my local knowledge my rating could drop because I don´t agree with the majority of reviewers. I guess it doesn´t happen often enough to matter but it just feels wrong.
