Some forums have a system that allows users to upload small files into a folder and then display them with [img] tags. Apparently it helps forum performance compared to attaching the image. I don't know why, unless attached images are stored in the database. Anyway, would this help forum speed?

Attached images are stored in the DB, AFAIK. It would make more sense to cache those on disk.

This forum script does suffer from 'we love databases' syndrome. :)

However, I am fairly certain now that the slowdown is/was not associated with the database.

Time will tell if there is an improvement in the site performance...

Yeah Poly and Speakeasy both have them. Poly limits it to game-related only, but allows larger files to be stored than with standard attachments. Speakeasy uses it to allow faster access of...stuff.
