In attempting to upload an 8.5MB PDF [housed elsewhere temporarily, for demonstration purposes] to the Files for FITS, my browser ends up at a very wrong target page. My contributions page shows 0 files pending after the seemingly failed upload. I made three attempts, making doubly sure on the third that I didn't botch my password.

I think 8.5 is a too big for BGG. It might max around 7 (?) or so, but I'm not sure the exact cut off.

This is dependent on the size of the file and your connection speed. In general, anything over 5 MB is a bit iffy.

Huh, I guess I overlooked that part. I could have sworn the limit was around 10MB before, but like the man said, "anything over 5MB is a bit iffy."

Thanks!

Anything over 5 Mb typically will die with a rejected password error due to a web timeout. It depends on how good your connection is to go larger.

We have been asking for the tool to use the Image uploader for over a year so that it would not time out, but without success so far.
