    I found some ciphered text and want somebody to decipher it. Okay, its my cipher. I want to see how hard it is to crack. Over time I'll upload hints, or even increase the reward, but it will stay small.

    Ciphered text:
    Z1 B65 56QPH B8LZ6 8LRV W88UH, B65 8LBZWPU 4B6SB1G RV L5 6GV5L CH6. 5ZVT Z1 B65 8LBZWPU 4B65LVG W88UH, 81 8LBBZR 5ZS7V 6QV56SL B65 SLL4, ZH6 ZABG6B 4BPDHP 65HE WSSG6B BHR.

    Hint #1

    Hint #2:

    Hint #3:

    Hint #4:

    Current reward: claimed

    Deadline: cipher was cracked 4/16/16

    ~VA wuz heer <- Vulpes is awesome

    Edit: the cipher was cracked, but feel free to give it a try.

    Just from skimming, it looks like only numbers and letters are transformed. :-/

    Can you just give the hints and get rid of the money prize? I don't think anyone actually believes you'll pay them anyway.

    1 has to be either A or I. 1 could be both A or I as well. Come to this conclusion by seeing how 1 was on its own. If 1 was on its own and this being all in english the only words that have one letter in english are I and A. I could be wrong too so.....yeah

    Shouldn't it be the other way around? Offer the maximum reward now and reduce it as you keep adding hints.

    i guess so, but i dont want to garuntee too much, so when its time for a hint ill put up a poll that gives a choice between a hint or raising the reward.

    Assuming the letters remain constant.
    Q8HZEBBR = E?R??II?
    Have no idea what this could be.
    Are all words real English words?
