I've been trying to upload an avatar (on Tom's Hardware) and have thus far been unsuccessful. I have tried .jpeg, .gif, and .bmp and none of them will upload. I just keep getting this error: "Sorry, invalid file type". It says they must be 85 x 85 pixils or smaller but it also says if it is bigger that it will auto-resize. It also says 20 max. for file weight; what does this mean? Is this why it would accept it, or is it because I should be using a different file extension?
Bonaparte Crossing the Alps by Jacques-Louis David (It's Napoleon on a horse, nothing offensive). I really doubt that it would be censored, because it says "invalid file type", and was rejected in under 10 seconds. There is no way that a human saw the painting and rejected it that quickly. I don't know why it would potentially be rejected anyway; it is a 200 year old painting that is in the public domain.
I just uploaded a different file that was 162KB and 500 x 336, and it uploaded successfully. I guess it was just a glitch, because this with the first attempt on this file it said that it just needed to be approved, whereas with the last file I kept getting the error.
