Hi,

Every time I try to upload a file, I will end up at
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/file/new//0?invalidpassword=1

I am pretty sure I've got my password right, having reset it a few times recently.

This is when I attempt to upload a new file, or update an existing file.

(The file in question is here, http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/41499)

Any info on what I'm doing wrong would be great.

Thanks,
Simon

That usually happens when your file you are uploading is too large. I think there is about a 5 MB limit on the web before the page times out. The only solution would be some custom code on BGG for file uploading.

I think your only solution is to reduce the size of the file by zipping it or reducing resolution.

Many thanks. I turned out the file was too big, so I split it into 2 separate zips. No problemo now.
