Actually once I had score submission problems and my Reloaded.app's ownership wasn't set to mobile, I changed that and then it worked...

Hmm, that's weird. You see, this is the technical explanation for the problem:

[…] Not the Reloaded app itself is causing the trouble (if something was wrong there, it would not even launch), it's the folder in which your highscores are stored (/var/mobile/Documents/).

In that folder, Reloaded saves your scores as individual .attribs files for every single track, so when you finish a song, your score is immediately written into the track's .attribs file. When that score should now be submitted to the leaderboards, Reloaded reads the song's .attribs file (which was just modified) and submits the highest score inside.

Therefore, a successful score submission is dependent on the successful modification of the .attribs file beforehand. Consequently, if Reloaded fails at writing your score to the .attribs file (or even creating that file if it is your first time playing a song), it cannot submit the score aferwards, because it was not correctly saved. Makes sense, right?

Now, if the /var/mobile/Documents/ folder (or a relevant .attribs file inside) belongs to root, such a failure is inevitably caused every time you finish a song, as Reloaded running as mobile can't save your scores (and therefore can't submit them) because it does not have the rights to do so. That's why it is very important to set the "Owner" and "Group" of both /var/mobile/Documents/ and all files inside to mobile.

So if changing the app folder's ownership worked for you, that's great, but I wouldn't technically know why. :P
I already read that post, and that's what made me think that I might just check if Reloaded's ownership is set to mobile and then I fixed my problem. The way I see it, it's just the same problem the other way around. Reloaded would like to modify the .attribs files however it belongs to root therefore it wouldn't have permissions to change the files that are owned by mobile...

Ratchet: Do you notice anything unusual about Captain Qwark?
Clank: Well I find the fact that he has a spring where his legs should be to be quite puzzling.
Ratchet: And why do you think that is?
Clank: Possibly an injury occurred while battling evil?

I don't think so. Jay is the closest I believe, as he said he has a bunch of -1 runs.

Is there anything wrong with the leaderboard? I can submit scores just as normal.

FUUUCK YEEES I literally jumped into the air and screamed when this happened.  It's actually really convenient that this happened today because Im on a trip for the remainder of the week in a place that may or may not have wifi.  Also I don't care if you see my IP address.

bouncing only, and only alternating when you have rolls.
or beacheagle grip.
