Hi, i really need some help. Im trying now for 2 days.

And id like to have 1 user named iiidefconiii to have the write permissions but im trying several settings and i cannot get it work, im still linux newbie can someone please advice
I did chmod 755 on the folder, then i was able to write, but then also the guest user "htpc" is able to write.
