Re: avatar upload restrictions?

Boone Gorges


It’s a problem with’s hosting situation. As @crashutah alludes to, shares user database with, which at the moment has pretty severe restrictions on the kinds of files that can be uploaded.

I’ve spoken with some of the staff at Automattic about the problem, and they’ve informed me that the general restrictions on uploads at will be lifted relatively soon. At that time, the avatar problem here will be fixed.

I can’t implement any other fixes on at the moment because of the fact that it’s running a WP 2.9.x installation, which must be upgraded before any more fixes go up. That upgrade process is going to be very complicated. I’m working on it.

In the meantime, I agree that it’s not a great first impression, but I encourage you to download the software and check it out.
