The word is "activate".

Why?

Take then the 4 clues:
cevtr
stiha
adtwh
aowte

Remove from those 20 letters, one by one, all of the letters from "What's the word". You're left with:
cvt
ia

ate

Reorder, that's "activate".

Good shout Spooky!!!!


Glad you got there, clues were running out rapidly

Thanks
To be frank I'm glad I spotted that because I was really going in all and every direction without the slightest clue about what I was looking for... Once I copied all the 4 clues together, I tried to do something with it, which was obviously not the way... I then thought: OK, then, there is something *IN* it... And I noticed, very incidentally, that there were 2 W, 1 R, 1 D... Strangely enough that matched the "What's the word?" count, so there I was... Very very incidental find!

It was exactly ther same for me!!!!
I spent ages trying to work with the original letters in a 5x4 grid....was going nowhere!!!!
it was only after deciding I needed a fresh start and rewriting all the letters that it suddenly jumped at me!!!
lets hope we get plenty more good ones!!!

Fantastic job, SpookyVince! 1300 points will find you very soon. I'm glad the game is finally done. Greatwork everyone!

And now, for those of you who hadn't already guessed it, I'd like to officially welcome 'Must be a way' as a new code writer. The next game is his. And all the same rules apply. Whenever he chooses to enter his first code, it will be worth 500 points and increase by 100 points every 24 hours. Good luck to all and thanks to 'Must be a way' for helping out on this thread. Be well.

The code looks great, 'must be a way'! We should mention that it's at 600 points right now and goes to 700 in several hours (a little over 6 hours I think, isn't it?) Anyways, good luck all. Cheers.

Hey all,
Sorry I have been away, got hit by a nasty little AV virus!!! ( I think off of youtube) the polymorphic son of a ............!!!!! took several attempts at manual removal before I was able to download more definate removal tools.
Still a clean bill of health now!

Ok so as always with VOID the clue is in the name

Its similiar to all of statics methods with just a little bit more!!!!

good luck all,

I hope you are have a good attempt too static?? I t will be intresting to see how you fair as a code writer?

Man, if it's not one thing, it's another. I've been ill and unable to be on the computer for almost a week now. I think I was literallygoing through ATS withdrawal!

On that note, I'm looking forward to giving this code a whack. Don't know how I'll be feeling, but at least I can be back on ATS and giving it a try!

Must be a way, I'm looking forward to seeing what you've got for us

I couldn't agree more! And I hope you get it all sorted out CeltAngel. It sounds like you're having a bit of a rough go of things lately. Be well. Cheers, all!

The code "Void" by my good friend 'Must be a way', hits 1000 points in a few minutes from now, if I'm not mistaken. I hope someone is getting somewhere on this one. Good luck all and thanks for playing.

Ok, I give, May we please have a clue?

(We're not all quite as brilliant as you!)

Hey all,
Im sorry I have seemed so negligent!!!!! I have had so many things happening that I have not been able to keep up!!!!! sorry

Currently we stand at 1200 points!!!

I created this code a long while ago and need to bring myself back up to speed on it! further info will be a bit later when the points roll over!!

this is my first created cipher so all feedback as to your progression, thoughts or where you think its leading etc will greatly help me in not only providing good clues but also to help me create new ones to keep us all challenged/entertained!!

Ok rambling over!!

as already stated the first clue is in the name.

second clue: When static asked me if I would contribute to the thread,my first thought was that I wanted to add something to it!

please guys feedback will help us all.
(thank you static for keeping up the points total in my absence)

hey all,
due to me not having the correct time on my profile I might be out by a bit....but dates alone we are now at 1400 points!!!!!

yes 1400!!!!!!!!!!!

I was hoping to give more subtle almost subliminal clues but due to my absence this is prob not the time!!!

still they will be 'soft'.............give me feedback so I know where Im at..............its so hard to know if a cipher is hard or easy when you have created it!!!

third clue: not everything is necessary

Cheers for the update, mate! It is a little tricky to tell how hard a code is, when you're the writer and know the answer going in, isn't it? That's why I love the accumulating points system. Ultimately, it decides and rewards accordingly.

I hope someone is getting somewhere with *Void*. I'm putting a little effort in when I can, just for fun but haven't had any luck at all. Good clue too, "Must be a way". Something's got to give.

Good luck, everyone and thanks for playing. Be well.

HeHe.....Static...............I wont let this ride too long...............I hope last thing I want is a slap from a mod for letting points get too high!!!

Im sure will can pull some talent into this!!!

I'm late to join this fun (yesterday) but what is immediately apparent is:

There are 24 letters listed in the cipher. It is not likely that 24 of 26 letters used in the English language would comprise a sentence/phrase of this length. Hence the "void"?

"Z" and "X" are the 2 least used letters. "E" is the most used.
"A" is used 10 times
"E" is used 5 times
"X" is used 9 times"
"Z" is used five times''
"Q" and "Y" are not used at all

There are a few other observations but I'll have to wait til later. Must go to work now. Dangit! Great thread, btw.
