to note - postimage.org ist the sequel to postimg.org / postimg.cc
it has been banned here for spreading malware by scripts and malicious scripts.

postimg got down in April, went .cc and now this. no recommendation from me. sorry.

The mZ forums has never allowed attachments whether using phpBB 2 or 3. Not uncommon for forums to not allow attachments due to load and spam and such. Not to mention it can be common for the forum to require you to have a logged in account to see said attachment.

This is due to database and server load which was a issue at times in the past and especially due to the amount of spam attempts this forum got over time. Spam is why new members since March 2011 has required first post approval since. Last thing we need is for spammers to have yet another thing to try and spam this forum with either in first post or later.
