Eliminating and placing vowels is very helpful to me. Guess that’s how my brain works.

How well can you place them when like 3/5 of the word is all vowels?

Me too, my last couple of guesses were:

PROBE

PROXY

I had considered going with "PROMO" as my 6th guess.

I'm going back to RENTS.

I'm not a big fan of starting with the 's' in the five spot. The game doesn't seem to have any plurals as the five letter word, from what I recall so far. So the S could still land there, but maybe not.
I've also moved away from the idea that starting with a lot of vowels as a preference

Give me a better RSTLNE word.

Stern

Thanx.

I like to save S and Y as final letters, since those can become more apparent as you progress. My first guess rotates but it's usually something like STEAK or HEATH.

i like y as the final letter, but like someone said before, i consider putting the s as the last letter a complete waste considering they don't seem to do plurals of four-letter words.

Well, I couldn't have worked on that for a while, but it's much easier to make the internet tell me the answer.

my “nasty proud chief” probing system brought me quick success today. Didn’t even need the chief.

It'd be cool if this was timed. Typing those 3 words would give you a 4 guess minimum most days, but I bet you solve it faster than most people.
