Fan Y Big

First post from me, with a question.
Does anyone know why Fan Y Big has suddenly appeared on the Hewitt Bagging map? As far as I'm aware it isn't a Hewit by the current definition. It wasn't on the list in August when I was down there and was about 100m from summit. Having bagged every other south wales hewitt on that long weekend, you can probably see my frustration and curiosity.
Has Fan y Big been remeasured? Has the definition changed? Was it always a hewitt? Am I going mad?
Thanks in advance.

It was remeasured and was found to only have a 93ft drop rather than the 98ft required

So why has it suddenly appeared as a Hewitt on the walkhighlands hewitt map?
Is it some kind of a sick joke?

This might have affected other deleted hills - if anyone has a heads up on any further errors it'd be appreciated. On the plus side, it's now massively easier for us to make changes / corrections.

Hillbagging notes a couple of Hewitt changes in the Lake District dated 30/01/21 which I see you have already updated on Walkhighlands - Carl Side being demoted from Hewitt status whilst Combe Head (one of the Glaramara tops) is promoted. However the Hewitt page lists the total as 315 when it should still be 316 so not sure which extra hill has been removed (or if it is just the total that is wrong)?
Edit - to clarify I mean the Hewitt map page, the Hewitt landing page is correct.
