For what it's worth, I can't access the gallery either. It says I'm not in the right group of user.

That happened to me happened to me when I first joined and I asked Fran to change my group of user to allow me access which she did so no doubt if you ask her and when she gets time after the holidays she will be able to help ye out.

Hayseed - Welcome to the site. I see that you are already participating, so I've moved you to the 'Friends' group which gives you full access.

Dan54 - I see that you've been a member for quite a while, but as you haven't participated on the site, you are in the 'Users' group which has restricted access - sorry about that.
