    For some reason the BYC upload function does not recognize my pictures as JPG's (or JPEG's, even though they are. I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything right, but every time I try I get this message:
    ERROR: Wrong filetype (has to be a .JPEG, .PNG or .GIF). Yours is:
    I have managed to load a few in the past, after about 20 tries, but I can't seem to get it to work at all anymore. It's not that big of a deal at the moment, just had a funny picture to share, but I dread the day I have some kind of chicken emergency and can't post a picture to get peoples help/advice. Any idea what's going wrong?

    I never used to have trouble but as of the last number of attempts I am totally unsuccessful. VERY frustrating and I am not techno savvy to know how to fix... Am going to try and pm a moderator, worth a try
