I had my user name included in both the readers and writers file. This prevented me from having write permission even though my name was included in the writers file. I found out CVSNT does this as a security precaution. CVSNT would rather be cautious and deny you write access then to grant you all access. Hope this information helps anybody else who wasn't aware of this.
