When I create riddles, ciphers etc.. they seem to get solved within only a couple of days of writing. Well no more! This cipher may not be impossible but is extremely difficult. If left unsolved for too long, I shall make it slightly easier but not too much so.

Crack the cipher and tell me what the message is. Good look!

enter image description here

I know it isn't much to go on. Hints will be posted every 1-3 days.

Hint 1:

It's a 7-step cipher including substitution ciphers, mathematical operations and other types of cipher

Hint 2:


Hint 3:


Hint 4:

The first step to decrypting it is thanks to Logie Baird

Hint 5:


Hint 6:

We also have to thank Julius, Gottfried and Samuel

Hint 7:

I have already given you all of the operations so you should now be able to solve it!

    $\begingroup$ Is there meant to be anything here recognizable as ciphertext, or is the idea that "When I create ... not too much so" actually is, or contains, the ciphertext? $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan May 8 at 10:46

    $\begingroup$ No, sorry. I accidentally posted this before I finished the cipher. It'll Be up soon! $\endgroup$ – William Pennanti May 8 at 11:12

    $\begingroup$ In that case I can tell you: right now, it is impossible. $\endgroup$ – Arnaud Mortier May 8 at 11:31

    $\begingroup$ Haha. Yes. Another 5 mins and I think it'll be up and running! $\endgroup$ – William Pennanti May 8 at 11:38

    $\begingroup$ Btw I definitely don’t recommend posting hints every 2 weeks, at most I think it should be every couple of days, as in two weeks lots of new stuff will be posted and this may fall behind. General policy is post a hint every 24 hours, but I reckon it could be a bit more, but definitely not 2 weeks :) $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil May 8 at 12:17
