    No @clintwhitman I'm the one who should be apologizing, as the dense one is myself. Upon looking into it it seems regular users still don't have permission to access the add media button. There should be a button in the upper right hand corner much like posting a new thread on the media page. Thanks for pointing it out it looks like we had misconfigured the permissions on that area and missed checked the wrong box. You guys pretty much had access to everything else with the exception of adding media.

    Thanks again bringing this to my attention. I have just fixed the underlying issue. As a side note @StaringAtStars is working on a short tutorial on how to post media as well.
