    Default A doubt in correctness of a sentence

    Hello,

    Can anyone help me in finding out the correctness of the following sentence?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I believe that you have made the changes as Richie suggested as I just checked the domain 'ideas-that-work.com' and it is working fine.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Shouldn't it be like?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I believe that you have made the changes as Richie had suggested (OR we can say "As suggested by Richie" OR "as As suggested") as I have just checked the domain 'ideas-that-work.com' and it is working fine.

    .
    Yours is OK, but so is the original. Simple past works in all these cases-- just so long as the chronological order is clear to the reader. What the original does need is a comma after suggested.
