Big images lead to empty record when trying to add a game

Happened to me 3 times in a row:

Edit: I managed to fill that game and discovered the issue. One image I was using was too big. Trying to edit the game lead to the page to just reload, without any success message. Removing that big image made it through.

So I guess the site is missing some error handling for situations like this.

Large images yield a timeout error. Submitted images are scaled down to 200px, so there isn't any necessary reason to submit overly large files.

Here are other similar topics:

I've removed the three empty entries.
