So after figuring out what the cipher was.. and finding the cipher key.. i got the pass.. but it doesn't work. 0.o
The pass is english, so I'm 99% sure it's right. I've tried lower case and uppercase.. but no luck. Is this mission working?

I'd like to know this as well. I'm almost positive I have the right password, but it just doesn't seem to be working.

By the way, I believe you gave a little too many hints in your post... :/

I re-did the mission and entered the password on another ID.

Mission works fine. You did NOT do the mission correctly, OR you entered the incorrect password.

Please double-check your answer and the cypher key.

To prevent future confusion, the password is not a word you would find in an English dictionary.

Strange. Because it seems both I and Juampi messed up and ended getting an actual word. o.0 Odd that the right answer is not a word, but two people messed up and got an actual word, and a very specific one at that. Is this intentional in the mission to throw people off, or just some unusual coincidence?

Coincidence.

Try again.

* Tip: Perhaps a few of the characters on the original image can be read differently. ;)

I think the confusion with this one is "the password is not a word you would find in an English dictionary". You shouldn't have gotten an 'actual word'. I don't know that it was intentionally done this way or just a mishap but I think if you take another look at it you will get what I'm saying.

the only problem you're having is reading the text in the image- i too, read the text in the image wrong and got an actual word, but just look at the image text carefully- all characters in the image text are uppercase and look carefully to see if some of the chars curve or not and you should be able to work out the characters in the image

Interesting...sounds like you went about this one a different way than I did :) My password was clear as day and I wasn't looking at the image to see it.
