This seems to have always been the case. If you upload a file with the same name as a previously uploaded file, the website will append the date to the name of the new file.

I mean:
if someone uploads the wrong file/img. the post is deleted, but not the attachments.

drastic:
image is uploaded, post deleted, link referenced outside the lwks-forum.

When a post is deleted it still remains on the forum until it is permanently deleted. So any attachment must also still be retained until that time. This is actually desirable, because it isn't uncommon for a post to be accidentally deleted. With the current behaviour a moderator can restore a deleted file and all its attachments. If this behaviour is "fixed" you will no longer have that option.

Unfortunately, you will also lose most of the screen grabs in both of the user effects threads and all of the MP4 examples in those threads. There is currently a dummy deleted thread used to keep all of that organised. You will also lose all of the effects zip files for the same reason.

Your call.

an additional button - delete post & attachement could be desireable.
