Ummm.... why don't I have permission to look at my own photos?

When I try, I get this:

"You do not have permission to view the images in this category."

Or, sometimes, it tells me that I'm not a registered user, and therefore there are not photos for me to see. As you can see, I AM a registered user, and I hadn't let the tab just sit open for hours, so there was no need for me to reload the page (although I did, anyway, with no change).

What's going on? It's rather frustrating, whether it's my mistake or a problem with the site.

Thanks

I'll check to see what's going on.
If it's not an easy fix, I'll have to get help, which might take a bit of time, but we'll find out what is happening.

As of today, 11:14 pm PDT, June 8th, 2014, I still don't have any of my uploaded photos in my gallery, and if I try to add more, I get this message: "Sorry, you don't have permission to upload photos."

Is someone actually working on this? I'd love to be able to add to what used to be my gallery, and share my photos, here.

Thanks for listening.

Yes, it's being looked into, as I told you in previous PMs.

Yes, I know you pm'd me about it. But those PMs were quite some time ago (at least it feels that way for someone who has to wait for a problem to be fixed w/out any form of communication about how things are going), and I worry that the site owner has either forgotten about this "small" issue, or put it on the back burner, due to his/her other site-related duties. Squeaky wheels and all that, right? ;-) My husband is a Unix Engineer/SysAdmin SME (Subject Matter Expert) at the employer he's worked for for 18 years, and he would be in trouble if the "clients" didn't have an answer to their problems after this amount of time had passed (short of having to call in vendor help for broken hardware issues. They are contracted to show up and have the problem fixed w/in 24 hours once they're called in). I'm truly pleased that no one here has their jobs and/or reputations on the line in such cases, but it would sure be nice to be able to have my photos back and to be able to upload more when I want or need to....

I'm sorry that my queries appear to be irritating you. You might, then, be able to imagine how I--the one who has to wait for dog knows how long to find out what's going on and how long it might be before a fix is implemented--must feel. I know that this is a free site, and that perhaps people think I don't have the right to ask questions unless I've paid my nickle to become a supporter, but still, if a service is provided gratis and supporting a site is voluntary, things should still work as intended, whether the person with the problem is paying to support the site or not.

Thank you for taking the time to assure me that the issue is still actually being looked into. I appreciate you taking the time to reply.

How is troubleshooting on this problem coming along?

Are there some updates? Even an update saying No Fix is Possible is helpful.

Hello new to the site today as well as a new gecko owner as of last night. It says I can't post anything this is the only place I could find that allows me to post is this because I'm new and need to wait a while?
Thanks ��

You should be able to post, if you can reply to a thread.
