After putting a bounty on an old question, I attempted to edit the tags of the question to remove the linear-algebra tag and add the tags abstract-algebra, galois-theory, and quartic-equations. This change was accepted by one user and rejected by another resulting in the entire edit to be rejected. (This can be seen in the review history).
But the reason for rejection is unclear to me. Linear algebra seems unrelated to the question, and the other tags seem both more appropriate to the subject matter and necessary to get the visibility that the question needs.
Am I wrong in thinking editing the tags is justified? If so, why?
If not, then is the best course of action to attempt the edit again, citing this question in the edit reason?
Abstract algebra is the study of algebraic objects. Some of the more common algebraic objects are groups, rings, fields, vector spaces, modules, among other topics. Whenever you use this tag, please also include related tags like group-theory, ring-theory, modules, etc., in order to make more clear about which topic of abstract algebra is your question and also to help other users to find similar questions through the search engine.
Edit 2 Looks like someone added the tags themselves. Thanks!
