ok, I am confused.
The account I have created for myself set for standard user account is able to see and upload to any category I have blocked.
I just went back to search a user that hasn't logged in since 2003, no posts or uploads, so I don't expect them to return.
I changed the password so I can use that account to see how it works, and with that account, I only see those categories I allow them to upload to.
Why would those accounts behave different when they are both set as standard registered users?
