Maybe try another file format? Anyway, we'll be upgrading the server software sooner or later.

It is now 21 Nov 2011 and I can't upload my Avatar either. It is the same one I use everywhere and is in the right format and is actually slightly under sized.

Mikey uses this Avatar jpeg,

Avatar creation no longer works fully/normally; you can't upload your image directly from your computer or the Internet.
Also, you cannot add a .jpg directly into your signature. Understandable given recent spam attacks.
http://www.gpugrid.net/edit_forum_preferences_form.php

However, Gravatar.com still works. You can create an account there, and add your avatar image to your Gravatar.com account (an image on your computer or an image on the Internet). This will be associated with your profile here.

I just tried uploading one and it gives "Http 500" errors. So it seems its still broken, maybe intentionally. As skgiven says it could be to prevent spamming.
