Everything BM is running on MySQL. Game, wiki, forums, and bugtracker. Always has been.

... So only M&F and it's forum are PostgreSQL then? Huh.
DISCLAIMER: While I am a forum administrator, I am not a BM administrator. I do not have authority to implement BM things. Only M&F things. I am to M&F what Delvin is to BM, but with less tradition.

Starting a new project is a great time to learn something new, so Tom may have done that. Or he may have already become acquainted with Postgres in another aspect of his life and wanted to use it for M&F. BM was started before Postgres was popular.

I wanted to switch BM to Postgres a long time ago, actually. It just turns out that it's not so easy if your code is raw DB code without an abstraction framework. That's why it never happened and why the wiki and forum are also running on MySQL - so the whole projects only uses on DB system.
