@BDHarrington7 Correct. At current, we do not associate uploaded files with a particular user, although there should be plugin hooks in place that will allow third-party plugins to maintain this association (for expiry purposes, etc).
I will probably look into this for 0.3.1. Also see https://github.com/designcreateplay/NodeBB/issues/563
