Uploading a new image to my personal gallery.

I'm using the default uploader, not the legacy. File size is ~23 MB. The upload progress bar gets near the end and just hangs. No error is displayed on the page.

On the JS console I see:
"POST https://boardgamegeek.com/geekimage.php net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET"


File too large? Something failing on BGG's end? I have no idea. The page should at least show that there was an error instead of hanging.

My suspicion is that the size itself isn't the problem, but rather the time it takes to upload (which is a function of size). The connection times out and the page hangs.

The bug that I'm reporting is less about the error happening, and more about the lack of any error message being displayed. The JS on the client side is aware of the error, but does nothing with it.

I'm sure you're right. In the past Aldie has stated that he loaded massive files through the BGG interface when he was on-site with the servers.
