Working off #3 (#4 is invalid as it used too many changes: One of the S's, the W, and the E are all new letters - Only 2 allowed)

I am assuming the Asterisk is only for reference. If so, that's only 8 letters (H I S T E R C E). Again, no good! 5 is the last valid entry.

You changed M to H, L to E, and Removed an I

May we not, as you did, (9) use "i i i" or other lower
case Roman numerals as a word?

#10 - The Lower Case was not for grammatical purposes. I have lower-cased things like "n e w y o r k" if those aren't the "New Letters".

If you follow the other posts, Uppercase indicates New Letter, not proper noun.

Also, that's how Shakespearean plays are. They aren't Act 1, Act 2, Act 3, they are Act I, Act II, Act III, Act IV, and Act V

12rolandperkins

"Grammatical" or not, weren't you using the WORD "three".
spelt with lower case Roman numerals? I'd play on 5, but the "NEXT'
is not supposed to be on one of your own. Please enter a post,
so that I'll have something legal for me to play on.

Once again, #88 Invalid (3 Replacements, S - F - L became I - E - O)

RolandPerkins - I think I am seeing your confusion. If the "old" entry has say, one E, and your entry has two E's, that counts as a new letter, the second E. Looks like you thought yours was valid because you didn't count the second E as a replacement (both your E's are lowercase and there is only 1 E in entry 87)

Using #87
