I think I have this mystery sussed...

for those who have been paying attention there has been a bit of controversy towards the member Groggy (A  member here who is not to be confused with the fictional Leone baddie of the same name) and his avatar having been animated to look like Frank's cigar was lit up and smoking.

This is half the truth.

there was indeed an animated Frank's cigar avatar on the boards at one point...but it wasnt Groggy's.


The owner of the animated cigar is non-other than newbie member "Joe_Bob". 

"Joe_bob", or "B_J" for short (I was going to mention "BJ" but then the poor man would be open to oral sex jokes) was tinkering with some animation to make his avatars move. He was messing around with the "Frank" avatar which is the same one Groggy has. Then J_B decided to have another avatar depcting Franco Nero in the spaghetti western "Texas Adios". Which is why we can no longer find "Frank's smoking cigar". We are so used to Groggy having that avatar that we thought it was him and not Joe_bob.

I hope this rambling is understandable.



the case of the missing animated Cigar is now CLOSED.

No offense taken. It was just a big misunderstanding.

I'm confused and crazy right now.

Where did "The Smoker" go, with his splendid animated avatar?

The Smoker hasn't been on in months. If he comes back he'll be surprised, lots of stuff has changed around here. But for the better.   Grin
