So I was just browsing Puzzling as usual, when I stumbled upon a... to put it mildly, "strange" question:
The question seems to be permanently deleted now...
For those who disabled GIFs in their browser, here are pictures that together form the whole webpage of the question: One, two, three. The question score constantly gets lower and when you hover over the word "clouds" (sorry for forgetting doing that in the GIF) a tooltip appears which says:
to which I always returned to for orientation and only changed the height when I had to
Edit: Thanks to Sleafar for stitching all three parts together. The missing parts between part 2 and 3 do not contain anything important.
Since the colored ciphertexts are hard to read:
MGQPHPGRNKEAWQYG Edit: Another mistake on my part, the intended ciphertext is
MGQPHPGRNKEAVPXF. But as you can see only the last few letters were wrong, so it's not a major mistake and you would've still gotten part of the plaintext with the intended method before.
Gray at the bottom of the page:
To the █████ of the ███
The profile image is also a GIF, and since the quality of it in the video is bad, here's a larger version of it. I didn't want to include it directly in this post since it's kind of annyoing.
And again, for those who can't run GIFs, the profile image consists of six parts: First, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth.
The substring "I started from the seemingly perfect state, with clouds(to which I always returned to for orientation and only changed the height when I had to) in front of me and earth below" primarily gives instructions how to rotate the cube when labelling it (keeping the "seemingly perfect state", of course), although one part of it also tells how to hold the cube when starting to "reconsider the self-image".
IMPORTANT EDIT: (SPOILERS/PARTIAL GIVEAWAY)
How do I put this... I apparently used a fake Rubik's cube when making this puzzle (without me knowing it). Sorry for the waste of energy and time if you tried to solve this, I have no excuse for it. The color scheme my cube has is this one. I also gave away the orientation here. You can downvote this into oblivion if you want, I'd certainly understand it.
Hint for Orange:
This isn't really a cipher, even though it does have to do with cryptology. Most of it is just junk, so the plaintext isn't actually 115 characters long.
What are the plaintexts of all the ciphers (including the gray text at the bottom)? Please add reasoning, not only the solution.
