I

have a message in

a

very new

kind of question page

a

way to find it is

to look

closer at the word

that stands out clear

a

way

to learn to

remember to find help

the

reverse cipher will lead

your way on

what you want to do with a

tap in

life

fourteen

seven

five thousand eight hundred

Minor Hint:

This puzzle was simple enough for me to make on my phone in 15 minutes. Don’t look too deeply here.

Minor Hint #2:

Stuff was changed around O.o, in addition, there are a lot of red herrings in this puzzle. Only one line holds real importance to the answer, but it's mixed up.

Minor Hint #3:

Think about why there are so many unnecessary line breaks, and also why a lot of them may only have one letter.

  • $\begingroup$ does the cipher tag apply? $\endgroup$ – Naeem Shaikh Oct 10 '18 at 13:35
  • $\begingroup$ somewhat. i'll add it $\endgroup$ – Excited Raichu Oct 10 '18 at 13:36
  • $\begingroup$ then i guess thats the only line important as you already hinted out :P $\endgroup$ – Naeem Shaikh Oct 10 '18 at 13:38
  • $\begingroup$ not necessarily, but maybe $\endgroup$ – Excited Raichu Oct 10 '18 at 13:38
  • $\begingroup$ I also know somehow either the number or learn/remember parts have something to do with the answer along with the cipher tag.. just dont know what! $\endgroup$ – Naeem Shaikh Oct 10 '18 at 13:39

So what I did was

Count the letters in each line (not spaces) because of the unnecessary line breaks

And ended up with

1 14 1 8 18 1 13 6 15 18 1 3 9 18 3 21 9 20 5 4 8 5 24

And then

A1Z26 => ANAGRAMFORACIRCUITEDHEX, which when parsed looks like ANAGRAM FOR A CIRCUITED HEX

As brought to my attention by JGibbers, this comes to

EXCITED RAICHU, which is OP. This does, I suppose, stand out.

  • $\begingroup$ Oh, good spot @JGibbers! I've edited that in. I had locked myself into looking for one word because of the Word tag. $\endgroup$ – Matt Oct 10 '18 at 19:04
