"search all member's posts" shows a list of every post I have made, but does not identify which posts have attachments. If I could see an attachment icon (paperclip) on the posts with attachments, I could quickly check if the attachments need replacing.
If you go to User Control Panel | Manage Attachments (click twice on the Post Time heading), you can check the attachments directly. You also get direct links to all of the posts that they were attached to.

I never upload any images directly to any forum. I always use a photo hosting site like photobucket, and strongly urge others to do the same. It's not that I don't trust this or any other forum with my content. It's because it requires less resources from the forum, and in the unfortunate event that something like this does happen, and as long as my post wasn't altered, my images should never be lost. I also just find it a lot easier, as most sites have pic size limits that always seem to be smaller than my default settings. It's very tedious and time consuming if I have to always adjust my image size before uploading. Photobucket doesn't care how large my pics are, and I can then just direct link those pics in my post.

It may seem like a good idea now - but it does not persist over time. I either serve my own pictures or upload them to the forum directly.
As far as the hiccups with the forum?
phfffttt... this is nothing

Happily, yesterdays problems seem to be gone. Yay GRIN.
