Here are some cryptograms for you to solve:

  1. 084 104 105 115 032 105 115 032 116 104 101 032 102 105 114 115 116 032 099 114 121 112 116 111 103 114 097 109 032 105 110 032 116 104 101 032 115 101 114 105 101 115 046 013 010

  2. 0114040020080919000919002008050014052420

  3. tvpbb ftjrw pt hcvm fvbh yllbvtcb tnpd J

  4. Bsfesutid tin s liteilsht hi! (the double spaces are intentional)

  • $\begingroup$ Point 4: The double space is nowhere to be found? Between which characters is this double space? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @JBSregath it is between "lieteilsht" and "hi!", I edited the question changing the quotes in code-blocks, that should solve the problem. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 20, 2015 at 14:47
  • $\begingroup$ meta.puzzling.stackexchange.com/q/1717/4551 mentions that "Before any hints appear, the puzzle is way too hard." I'm sorry, but I think most are not that hard except for 4 (which actually uses a fairly common encryption method). $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 21, 2015 at 13:10

    $\begingroup$ Yes, Len said it well. These codes are pretty standard ideas, and that's what makes them solvable with short texts and no additional hints. You can extend them with more novel ideas. See my meta answer. $\endgroup$

Cryptogram 4 is:

But i still finished this set!

encoded with 6 column transposition per this sequence:
1 6 11 16 21 26 2 7 12 17 22 27 3 8 13 18 23 28 4 9 14 19 24 29 5 10 15 20 25 30

Cryptogram 5 is:

Hope you had fun!

encoded with Morse code (0 is dash, 1 is dot, 2 is letter space, 3 is word space).

3)

I don't actually have much to write about

the method

Reverse the sentence. and then I noticed it was pretty much readable already. To get the real sentence replace every vowel in the solution with it's next letter in the alphabet

In progress... :)

1)

This is the first cryptogram in the series.

method

(Ascii character numbers)

2.)

AND THIS IS THE NEXT

Method:

Treat each pair of digits left to right as position of the corresponding letter in the alphabet, 00 = SPACE; 01 = A, 02 = B, 03 = C, ...
