7z is accepted but will be converted to zip once spotted

If you don't mind the question, I've been wondering why this is the case? Is there something about zip and rar that's preferred over 7z? I use 7-Zip myself and find 7z convenient and afaik every software that can open rar files can also open 7z files

Every software supports zips not 7z you need to download a whole new program to get 7z and winzip can lead to random viruses and crap

Yeah, definitely don't use WinZip, but 7-Zip is free and good software. I noticed you allowed RAR which also isn't supported on Windows unless you install new software. WinRAR also opens .7z files. I don't know any software that opens .rar but not .7z

A bunch of people say they can open rar no problem so I just took their word for it, especially since it's such a common package file.
