I notice an few old forum regular users after it went down still think they have lost all there pictures. So to clarified there doubt what they unaware of .

No ! :roll:

Phpbb forums 2012 Version 3.09 or later does not store pictures(image) in there database.

Ones you upload an picture link photobucket( imageshacks & Tinity) or whatever .

The database will translate the link in..ENCRYPT DATA

""ëxample"" http://i428.photobucket.com/albums/qq3/ ... G_2079.jpg[/img]\n\n >

By saying you-re pictures are still in you-re image accounts

The board only save pictures links not image

Even so your responsible for you own personal pictures backup images ;)
