I have a question, will you be marking the mystery based on the complexity of the commands used in the scripts (made by us) or the complexity of the commands that the user (you) has to perform in order to solve it?

Both
If you used complex commands, but all we need is cat, then that will count against you
Vice versa, if you just used mkdir and touch and we're expected to be using awk/sed/grep for everything
Try and find a good balance

Oh well it's the opposite actually, I have used a lot of commands in the scripts but the users as to cd/read/execute scripts...

In that case, try and make it a bit more challenging for the user, in terms of commands

If you have a file which is easy for us to read
Maybe trying adding a lot more content to it, so that we have to grep to find what we're looking for

Hey, I seem to be having a problem with my check command. Whenever I try to put the correct name in, it keeps giving me ./check: 3: ./check: =: not found
./check: 5: [: unexpected operator
Any ideas why?

Can you put your code in a gist? Can't do much without seeing it

@deliriou that looks like an error due to incorrect whitespace and syntax
But put it in a gist so we can see.
