Should be pretty easy to build a backup system. Imgur is just a handy plugin to send images there. Every site that uses a CDN has this problem, potentially. A plugin to upload the images locally or to S3 should be very easy. Very few people want to use locally hosted images, though. But for those that do, the option would be good. Then blocking would be uniform.
How to Take a Backup?
Do we have an inbuilt feature in NodeBB to take an automatic backup of the forum?
If no, then how one should take a backup?
Are there any plugins for it ...like wordpress plugins?
Please let me know.

NodeBB itself cannot make an automatic backup.
@srinik: you can write bash or python script (whichever you prefer) which stops mongodb service, runs mongodump and starts mongodb again. You should make a cron job which runs your script once per week (example).
Look at the following code (bash):
