I also have it decoded, but am being marked incorrect. I'm not sure what I'm missing.

Message me your answers, and I'll see if I can help. EDIT: Oh, I noticed a typo in the answer string! Sorry about that, try now.

ugh I should have woken up earlier. You beat me by a few minutes! XD 
Re: Cryptography Challenge #66!

Hmm.. This is a good one. Is there a specific or easier way in finding out how or what to do? Also, is there a specific reason as to why the first number in all of them is a "3"? Also, I noticed that some or all of the numbers will change upon refresh.

The numbers change because I wrote a program to create this puzzle, which employs a random algorithm. I just wanted to show off that fact. On average, it should be as easy to solve one output as any other. In this challenge, the number 3 means "the next number in this sequence is a mathematical operator". 
Re: Cryptography Challenge #66!

Hmm... so you wrote a program, huh? So then you must know about programming and stuff. Well then, it just so happens to be that I'm learning how about programming, (I'm taking some programming courses next year), so maybe you could help/teach me during my studies every now and then, hmm? (if you wanted to, your choice) Well anyways, Hmm... Now I think I'm having a bit of trouble with figuring out which "mathematical operator(s)" is which with that hint that you gave out. I'm guessing hint 1 is supposed to tell you that, is that right? Either way, I'm still having a bit of trouble with making heads and tails of that hint. Also, is hint 1 decoded or encoded? (I believe it's encoded, but I just want to make sure) Well now I can see why this is worth 650 points.

Re: Cryptography Challenge #66!

Gendou said, "3 means 'the next number in this sequence is a mathematical operator'." What about the other prefixes/coefficients? edit: NVM. I see the pattern now. Solved! 
Re: Cryptography Challenge #66!

Dang, you beat me dood! Hmm... I could use a bit of help with this challenge. "3 means 'the next number in this sequence is a mathematical operator'." I'm not sure which mathematical operators are which. edit: Okay, I see now. so hint 1 is supposed to tell you that. I was getting confused with it earlier, but now I see. Also thanks for the help dood!

Re: Cryptography Challenge #66!

See Hint 1 for the answer to your question on which are which. Hint 1: http://gendou.com/crap/crypt66/crypt66encode.php?hint=1 
Re: Cryptography Challenge #66!

Edit: (After getting some time to try it again) Okay, Now I'm getting confused with Hint 2. I'm not sure how to translate the message from ASCII. (I mean I don't know if I'm doing it right)
