Yes, because I'm kind and generous. And it'll make occasional Frankie abuse more convenient.

No, because I'm cold-hearted and I want to get back at Static for something.

Self-serving petition: please make Frankie one of the forum smilies

When my daily bandwidth resets, Frankie can be found at this URL:

http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-...04/frankie.gif

I just moved a little while ago, and I've recently wanted to put Frankie into some of my posts. However, my new image hosting craps out at 5 MB/day, and having "the red x" at the end of my posts instead of the little green guy looks sloppy and ruins my attempts at humor. And let's face it, I have a hard enough time being funny.

He's only 3K, and I promise that I'll keep feeding him and plugging him into his charging station at appropriate intervals. Whaddaya say? Will you give Frankie some lovin'?

(Keyser, if you're reading this, please, no comments about how much lovin' that I've given Frankie. )

So, when does your bandwith limit reset for the day? I'm rather interested to see this Frankie character.

I find this funny, but I just looked at their little Usage Limit page, and it is actually using more bandwith to display that page than it would to display your 3K image.

Static, I’m on the fence on this. I love Frankie and miss your alter ego. He hasn’t been around much since you modded up.

But I think making him a smilie for all to use would be contrary to what (I believe) you’re trying to do, which is to find him a place to live where he can get out more. Yes?

Maybe, since you’ve got connections, you can make a deal with Geoff to host the image but not include it in the “public” list? Sure, the more resourceful members would be able to steal him from time to time. But I think having him available for all to abuse would make him one cranky mofo.

Me too. Frankie should be for Static's use only. I, for one, don't want sloppy seconds.

I would've agreed with you, too, but I'm also happy with what Geoff did!

Fire bad! Smiley good!

What do you say to Geoff?

Thank you, master!

Hey! I'm the one that created you, remember?

Static cannot even afford to put Frankie image online. What, Static too poor for 3K image?

I knew this would come back to bite me in the ass. (Great, I think I just set Keyser up again.)

I really don't get the feeling that Frankette elicits female sexual arousal in quite the same manner that does.

Hey now, I am sure you do not speak for all the crossdressing-green-monster-made-of-dead-human-remains-needing-to-be -shocked-to-life-by-bolts-of-lighting women on the forum.

We tried, we fought the good fight, but mother/squishy or whatever we tried to call that donut, it just wasn't meant to be...
