This wiki page was created to help new (and old) users who stumble across the Feel the love sub-forum and don't know what is is about.
It all started with this thread (at that time still in BGG General): Feel the love! Free thumbs & GG to be had for all., which was originally created by Stormparkiet in 2008.
After 1309 days the thread had accumulated over 4400 pages (or 111652 posts, to be exact) and had to be locked by the Admins, because its size was slowing down the servers. They also declared that future threads would now be capped and locked once they hit 1000 pages to prevent any server issues again.
As a result the BoardGameGeek Community sub-forums were announced, with an entire Feel the love sub-forum dedicated to all things love related.
Aenea then created the Feel the Love - Second Age - Thread #1 thread where things continued as before, just in a new environment. That thread reached 1000 pages after exactly 3 months, so Feel the Love - Second Age - Thread #2 continues.
- Thumb Bomber
