Missed this declaration over the holiday period.
Mr Brooks, who is standing for mayor as an independent candidate,
Yes. That is the site working as intended. You are notified when someone has made an edit to a title or added a relevant tag to help link your topic to other similar topics.
In this case the title was edited as there are other topic(s) for Mayoral candidates of other parties, so it is important to disambiguate (although apologies for mistakenly adding Lib Dem, as I see the candidate is actually an independent). I have also added the tag #lewisham-mayor so your topic is more readily searchable, and linked to other topics about the mayoral election.
All trust-level-3 members are able to edit titles, categories and tags of all topics, by design (although not the content of posts themselves - only moderators can do so). This is a collaborative site where we work together to keep the content organised and searchable.
It is better to contact us directly than to have a conversation about moderation within a topic like this. That way, topics stay on-topic and people’s attention is respected.
