When I attempted to apply for my new avatar, I got this message:

"Error Encountered
Unable to process uploaded file. Contact server admin."

I'm just going to post my avatar here and I hope it ends up in the right place...

There is an unstated file size limit on avatars, and your avatar exceeds it.

There is no reason a 131x128 pixel jpeg should be 50kB in size. Think for a sec, a 56k user would take approximately 8-9 seconds to download that image.. just for one freaking avatar!

While I know jpeg compression is not the best thing in the world, please use it anyway and reduce your image size to a reasonable level. Most people's avatars appear to be in the 5-10kB size, which would only take a second or two for a 56k user. I suggest aiming for that range.

I thought it had to be bitmap. I'm sorry if I overlooked you, my 56k comrades. I've gotten so used to my ADSL that I just assume everyone has it this way.

Anyways, I put it it jpeg and it should accept it now.
