    There are currently 174 users online. 2 members and 172 guests

    Most users ever online was 215, Today at 05:15 AM.
    If 228 was an all time record, and now there are 174 users online, I think that either a link to this forum popped up in some busy blog, or some botnet has found this forum.

    I did a bit of digging, and it seems the resetting "most users ever online" tally is a bug in the software that was introduced after an update. It used to stay put unless manually reset by an admin.

    If I recall, the actual record was much higher like 500? 700?

    Here's the stat I remember...

    Most users ever online was 589, 07-10-2015 at 01:32 AM.
    As Space Wolf says, it was probably the result of someone linking to the site from a busy blog or reddit thread.

    Yup. Yesterday was our 2nd busiest day in a couple of months at least.

    Google recently changed the way it ranks sites for search performance, so it could be that.

    It could be Mitsu is offering bigger rebates on the cars - I haven't checked. But that drives people to research the car and read the forum.

    I checked - no unusually good rebates going on in the U.S. $500 for the hatch, $750 for the G4.

    Top popular page in the past 24h was the forum search page.

    It appears to be resetting daily again.

    ---

    FYI: yesterday was the forum's busiest day (hits/visitors) since the Great Discounted Mirage Traffic Spike of early 2016. Over 3 years ago.

    There doesn't seem to be any specific reason (no big referring site) - it's just general traffic, most of which is people searching for Mirage info and apparently finding it here.
