ForumSite Information ► Mass user influx!
I believe I may have found the reason behind the massive increase of users to this site.

On February 28, 2011, an image was added to the front page of the Cheezburger Network's "Art of Trolling" webpage. The image contained a screengrab of a user's "Ask" section.

The question? "How do magnets work?"
The number of answers? Zero.

You can find the cause behind our recent crowded-ness here:
I hate art of trolling now
We're on there twice?

We're all trolls.
We have become supercritical. There are enough users on here that we get Art of Trolling hits, and there are enough Art of Trolling hits that we get more users.
