Couple of things
::According to the upload page, the main problem is with multi-byte characters, ''not'' other single-byte characters. Why should the files be in .png when the original source was .jpg? Finally, why is there a limit on image dimension? Wouldn't a limit on file size make more sense? --[[User talk:Shiny Noctowl|<font color="black"><small>S</small><sup>h</sup><small>i</small><sub>n</sub><small>y</small> <sup>N</sup><small>o</small><sub>c</sub><small>t</small><sup>o</sup><small>w</small><sub>l</sub></font>]] 02:02, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
:::The upload form clearly states "ONLY USE ALPHANUMERIC CHARACTERS, DASH, AND UNDERSCORE IN YOUR FILENAMES." Brackets are not in the alphabet, brackets are not numbers, brackets are not dashes, and brackets are not underscore. It's really not that hard to understand. Don't use them. PNGs keep the image together so it appears clearer in the thumbnail, jpgs are just ugly. As for the image dimensions, we're not in charge of that rule, Nate made that rule. So next time you want to upload, do it right the first time, and don't revert us, thanks. --[[User:PsychicRider|<span style="color:#78C850;">'''Psy'''</span>]][[User talk:PsychicRider|<sub style="color:#F85888;">'''ライダー'''</sub>]]''[[Special:Contributions/PsychicRider|<span style="color:#C4E673;">'''☮'''</span>]]'' 02:23, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
::::Brackets: I don't care. The upload form also clearly states that ''only'' multi-byte characters will break the system.
::::Dimensions: The image resolution limit was created because of bandwidth and other similar concerns; a limit on file size would be more logical.
::::Revert: There's no reason not to revert you; you're just a regular user. --[[User talk:Shiny Noctowl|<font color="black"><small>S</small><sup>h</sup><small>i</small><sub>n</sub><small>y</small> <sup>N</sup><small>o</small><sub>c</sub><small>t</small><sup>o</sup><small>w</small><sub>l</sub></font>]] 04:12, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
