::::That error appears when your file's extension name mismatches the current ext. name of the file you want to replace, like .png to .jpg. In that case, you have to upload it as a new file. Also, what make us prefer .png over .jpg is that resizing JPEGs files makes it look grainy. The best quality only shows when the full JPEG image resolution is displayed.

:::::I think I've said like hundred times that this small aesthetic issue can be solved by changing two settings for thumbnails of MediaWiki. Prefering png over jpeg for this is simply retarded and shows that people have no competence in making adequate decisions about file formats, sorry to be so frank but it has to be said. I've suggested to change the setting but I constantly get ignored or people are too lazy to address the issue or so. I'm quite puzzled, actually, that this hasn't been solved in months and by now I can imagine almost every member believes this nonsense perception of when to use jpg and when to use png or has accepted it. It it possible to set a higher JPEG quality for when thumbs are generated and there is a setting for sharpening downsized thumbnails which can be disabled. And even if it's not changed, there is no reason to whine about such a small aesthetic issue and start uploading everything as png (it's like shooting pigeons with cannons), which make pages load a lot longer - not everyone has high speed internet and it's egoistic to ignore that just like it would be to assume that users have at least a screen resolution of 1280 in width to not need to scrol horizontally - nobody would do that and in the same way it is important to upload jpegs for certain types of images and for other types prefer png, but not for all. I can't believe I would be the only person here who is aware of these things and everyone else being noobs that think their high speed internet access is given for everyone and that they can upload everything in png without worrying. I haven't been around for a while but it seems like the planned image policies still haven't been written. This nonsense has to stop and if I wouldn't be able to hold my temper and just get inactive again out of frustration, I would have already banned a large number of people who upload png images that would have been better been uploaded as jpg. --[[User:Nyoo|nYoo]] 20:24, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
