    Code your message in some way, the next user must determine what is your message and then tell us how he cracked the code.

    I have to assume it is in English. I also have to assume you want it cracked so not some kind of book key/one time pad, and probably not even a cyclic substitution (one letter this, the next letter that, the next this again, the next that again). Does not look like a shuffle ( http://www.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/people/matt.davis/cmabridge/ , even though I kind of suck at those). I am too lazy right now to hack you (read, read your post history) to see if you like certain crime shows (loads of people I know that saw the wire use the thing in that for certain purposes), computers (if you looked like you were on IRC or message boards earlier in life then http://www.rot13.com/ would be it, though "Male, 22" would downplay the chances of that a tiny bit), though the once nice computer in your signature and that you are posting this thread makes me wonder a bit.


    Time for the message then

    Words reasonably long but still within reason. Spaces kept so presumably some kind of substitution cypher, though possibly varying between words.

    Started with a capital as well so presumably a language/keyboard based one rather than a hexadecimal based one.

    For words of that length then they are unlikely to have no vowels (or a y acting as one) so each will have to feature a vowel (aeiou). However I do not want to rule out you adding garbage in words, nothing pops out at me but same as the shuffle thing I do not do well. Does not appear to be a phonetic type thing either.

    Frequency count with https://www.mtholyoke.edu/courses/quenell/s2003/ma139/js/count.html
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Most common, though this probably a bit short for proper statistical analysis
    R 5
    S 4
    E 4
    T 3
    O 3
    D 3
    Y 3

    scrabble scores ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrabble_letter_distributions#English )
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    The y is interesting but RSET and O are common and D is not much worse.

    , and ; in the middle of words for no reason, possibly then a keyboard based substitution (shuffle one right or down or diagonal on a keyboard, which would also do well for ; and ,). It should not be a problem in this instance but your flag says Canada so I will assume a Canadian layout (UK keyboard in case you had never seen one http://www.goodtyping.com/teclatUKok.png ) for the keyboard stuff. I probably should look up to see if Canada uses azerty (or the French speaking part does) but I am too lazy at this point. The presence of a in the third word does complicate this though. I have no fancy keyboard shuffling website to do it for me so not wasting my time means I should look at the ones with punctuation in.

    One left to correct the right hand shuffle
    kluijkwe which is meaningless.
    one up to sort a down
    opmioxc (not sure what to handle certain things as but the various combinations did not get far).

    No repeating characters ( http://www.panopy.com/iphone/secret-ada/double-letter-words.html ) I could use to help a substitution cypher crack.

    So garbage between letters then.
    Deleting every other letter and respecting spaces
    The message for those following along at home
    Cvopdfer yuopuirt m,ersdsdasgher l;iokler tyhjasty

    Code your message like that
    and to see what the other stuff was
    vpfr upit ,rddshr ;olr yjsy
    If I had to guess you just shuffled your hands around the keyboard in a fairly natural manner (nothing from the middle of the keyboard or top row on the left) and we never taught or do not practice "home keys".

    To continue the game I propose something that you should never double encrypt with the same algorithm
