Hi.  I think you have to be careful when you set the ownership to 
nobody:nobody for shared directory, usually this nobody user does not have a 
real shell and home, secondly your user chris might not be in this group at 
all so when he tried to access he was denied writing.

Please changed the permission to a more sensible user and group like 
chris:chris or if chris:othergroup where chris is a member of othergroup.

Hope this helps.
