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)
C r i m E / l i s t
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
s e E / A c t / i i i
(As in referencing a book with acts, like Shakespearean plays - have fun with this one with all the vowels - often looks like my Scrabble rack!)
May we not, as you did, (9) use "i i i" or other lower
case Roman numerals as a word?
e a t:/ T a c O / i i.
#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
"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.
>12 rolandperkins: - Cry me a river! I have seen it say nowhere that Roman Numerals were forbidden. 9 Total Letters, change 2.

*Yes there is such a name: one of 2 middle names of
the great singer/actor Burl Ickle Ivanhoe Ives
Working off 53 (#54 Invalid - Changed 3 letters - O, N, and S became R, E, and L)
c h i n e s E / a X
(also known as a Dagger Axe)
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)
e w! / f l U s h / i t!
"...(the second e) counts as a new letter" (88-89)
Yes, I did know that, but forgot it; thanks.
