I recently uploaded a file and noticed I misnamed the file after it was approved. As far as I can tell, there is no way to rename a file on a game's file page. I don't want to waste an admin's time (and BGG server space) by reuploading the same file with the correct name. Can we have a feature that allows us to rename our existing files in the database?

This capability did exist for a brief time. I'm not sure why it was rescinded, but I sometimes wish I could rename a file as well. It was rather convenient for me since I upload a ton of files.

Workaround: If you re-upload the file you can then delete the misnamed file from the same page.

(as a joke comment, I have to make it clear that you surely misnamed your file *before* it was approved, right?)

Admins can rename files. Please provide a link to the file and a clear description of what you want the name to be.
