It simply displays an empty image spot, so it's clear that there is supposed to be an image there... but the image is not shown. I've tried with .jpg and .gif. In fact, I've tried downloading the askbot logo, and uploading it again on that setting, to have the closest thing to the original set up. Still no logo displayed.

Yes, the ASKBOT_UPLOADED_FILES_URL was wrong, thanks Evgeny. Btw there is still a bug in serving uploaded files (unrelated to this question):

@Evgeny: and btw what's the point of these askbot-specific settings vs. standard MEDIA_ROOT and MEDIA_URL?

@piskvorky, we should remove the unnecessary custom variables, I agree with you.
