Whenever I try to upload an image, I get the "File type verification error!" error. Can someone help? --Starman125 00:33, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Are you trying to upload an image and changing the file extension? Also, which wiki is this happening at and is it only happening with one image, or any image? --User? 00:49, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
I tried to upload the image in png format, but I got the error. Then I changed it to jpg, but it still didn't work. The wiki it's happening at is the Kirby Wiki. --Starman125 00:52, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
If you tried to change the extension on the upload form, you'd get a different error. I can't seem to reproduce your issue. Does this happen at other wikis too? --User? 04:41, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
I used an image converter to convert the image into jpg format. Neither one will upload. And I'm not sure if it happens on other wikis either. --Starman125 06:06, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
Feel free to try this on w:C:fr.3d then. That wiki is in french but you should be able to make some tests there. — TulipVorlax 09:54, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
Never mind. I just pasted the image into a new one. That one actually uploads. --Starman125 19:54, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
LOL! That's weird. Ok, glad you found what was wrong. — TulipVorlax 20:54, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
