I still have no access to the image of the month board when I'm logged in, and probably it has to do with my new status as an uploader.

"uploader" is an addition to your existing permissions as a user.

you have all of the permissions a "Fractal Furball" should have and as such you should be able to access the contest pages... investigating...
Fragmentarium is not a toy, it is a very versatile tool that can be used to make toys ;)

adjusted board permissions to include uploader group, you should be able to see it now  :-\

not sure why but a lot of groups were not enabled, I think because it was assumed that every user is a member, by default, of the "Regular Users" group and that should be all that is needed for permission to view and post.

I think this does illustrate a problem or bug with SMF because you, as a regular user, should have had access to that board.

maybe when you were added to the uploader group something was left unchecked ???

I see that your status is listed as "uploader" (above your avatar when using the old theme) it should be "Fractal Furball", this is based on the number of posts you've made, so, I'm going to have a look and see if I can figure it out, I haven't looked at your account (I'd rather not) but this seems like your primary group has been switched from "Regular User" to "uploader". To upload stuff you just need to be a member of that group but it should not be your primary group...

EDIT: as I suspected, I have changed the primary group and selected "uploader" as a group your are a member of, can you test your download page and make sure that you are in fact an uploader? you can tell right away if the Edit | Delete buttons don't showup, they should be visible if you are a member of the group :)

I see the "Add Download" and "MyFiles" buttons, and the Unapprove/Edit/Delete links, so I am really an uploader, and all is fine now.
