Review of revision 1199922 [Passed][edit]


{{editprotected}} "...Perkins simple lifestyle": this should be "Perkins' simple lifestyle". Also, would it not be better to change "Muddy" to "Waters"? Wikipedia policy explicitly says last names should be used in normal circumstances, Waters is used in the rest of the article, and this seems more in line with preferring direct speech over euphemisms. Or is that too big a change to make now? Heavy Water (talk) 00:01, 8 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The typo is Done but I left the usage of "Muddy" intact. I think as it is a stage name it bears exemption, and if WP is a guide they do the same. (WP is not necessarily a guide). SVTCobra 04:30, 8 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, but reopening because the spelling is now "Perkin's simple lifestyle", when his name is Perkins, not Perkin. --Heavy Water (talk) 04:53, 8 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
