That's right! I've discovered a trick to it! Actually I don't remember for sure but I believe Peipei discovered it but anyway I'm sharing it with you today. Whatever glitch is in the site that makes it so difficult to change art files can be by passed by changing the filetype! That's right it's that easy! If your current file is a .jpg upload your new one as .png! You'll see it works right away as it should!

But. If you change it to a jpg, then to a png, then upload a different jpg and you'll see the old jpg again. If you've previously uploaded a jpg, a gif, and a png, then if you choose another of one of those formats you're back where you started.

Dude seriously you act like I work for Platinum or something all I'm sayin is I found a way to make it a little easier. Don't use my glitch if it's not good enough for you! MWAH!

It's a good glitch. You only get 3 shots at it though.

Yeah it's been known for a while. It works, but again you only have so many shots at it. Sadly the server doesn't appear to be fixed yet. Hoping it will soon. :)

I uploaded a shitload of random avatars, thus I have no idea what I'm going to get.

It's a mystery.

4. You can use the extension of JPEG as well.

It's the same work around someone else discovered a while back.

I thought it was three. .png, .jpg, .gif. Aren't .bmp and .swf's unallowed? Or am I missing some obvious extension and making an ass out of myself? :|

“JPEG” is an alternate extension for jpeg files. So you can have “lefarce.jpg” and “lefarce.JPEG”.

So basically common knowledge that somehow I looked over.

I feel smart.

I don't know how common it is. Jpeg also has other accepted extensions such as “jpe”, “jif”, and a few others but whether DrunkDuck allows them or everyone's browser recognizes them might be questionable.

I still can't change the thumbnail of my comic even when I change the extension. I guess i just wait it out til it gets fixed!

I tried that .png thing and it disappeared all together.
