Avatar upload prob

While trying to upload avatar (png 76x100, 2 kB), I got this error
Quote
The error returned was:

You are not allowed to upload that type of file as an avatar

Seems that png extension caused this, since changing it to gif helped the avatar to be accepted.

Hmm, I switched from Phoenix to IE and it works now. Seems it was a browser error after all.

Mine uploaded with no problem, but I changed it back to .gif because of the filesize.

You may wnat to change the error message from "You are not allowed to upload this kind of file" to "The file is too big" or something. I just ran into this problem myself. Admittedly, a search fixed it, but it's counter-intuitive to give a wrong error message.
