During the event, Gaians could kiss other Gaians in the Valentines 2k8 forum by clicking on under a poster's avatar and fill up their Love-O-Meter. The Love-O-Meter ranks for male avatars were: Dungeon Master, Poindexter, Scrub, Friend Zone, Playa, Don Juan, Adonis, and Casanova. The Love-O-Meter ranks for female avatars were: "Great Personality," Shrew, Wallflower, Fangirl, Tease, Flirt, Siren, and Goddess. Participants would also receive a Kiss Card from Aekea General Hospital, which would describe the symptoms:
Weakness, intestinal distriumph, fever, sore throat, unusual gravity, swollen lymph nodes, bad feelings, the grumps, tongue done swole
With a diagnosis of:
Infectious Mononucleosis (Mono) a.k.a The Kissing Disease
The card listed all Gaians kissed by the 'patient,' and was signed by: Attending Physician Dr. Sougporn Musikaditak. The scrawled signature was hard to make out, so this name may be inaccurate.
When the Love-O-Meter reached a certain number of kisses, a reward would be given to the kisser. The Love-O-Meter filled when 50 kisses were reached. The participant could still kiss other posters after reaching this point, however no new event items or rankings would be awarded.
