Cannot upload custom avatar

As you can see, I just did the contributor thing (gladly too, this site has been a big help, hooked me up with my Jem too ). I'm having difficulty uploading a custom avatar. My picture fits all the criteria as far as I know, but I get an "Unable to save file" error. I've tried changing the size, changing it between a gif and jpeg. I even tried uploading a 50 x 50 jpeg avatar that is 0.6 kb, which should have not trouble uploading, but no dice, I get the same "unable to save file" error.

Re: Cannot upload custom avatar

did you make sure it's named .jpg or .gif and the file type is correct?

Re: Cannot upload custom avatar

Named jpg or gif? The file type on the ones I experimented with are indeed jpegs and gifs, but there's no .jpg or .gif in the actual name of the file. Just for the hell of it I did try that, btw -- for example, changed a jpeg named avatar to avatar.jpeg, making the .jpeg as part of the name. Not surprisingly, that didn't work.

I even gave all the gifs and jpg files to my wife to look at in photoshop. I gave her the required size, she couldn't see anything wrong with them and didn't have any ideas on why they wouldn't upload.
