I tried to upload an image in PNG format but it didn't work. So I converted it to jpg. Is this just random chaos on the server? Or is there a reason not to support the more powerful PNG format? Just curious.

Moved from Mayflies.

This information is at the top of the page on which you submitted your image.

"Your image must be in jpeg format. You may submit an image of any size, but 560 pixels on the longest side is preferred. Anything bigger than that will be automatically resized"

the following statement refers to photographic images: "Using PNG instead of a high-quality JPEG for such images would result in a large increase in file size with negligible gain in quality" (PNG article on Wikipedia)
