"random" suggestion

I think it would be fun to have one more button on each topic (and subtopic) page: RANDOM, to just take you to any random page within the topic. Just one more button on the top row: NEW ~ POPULAR ~ BUZZING ~ RANDOM. I don't know if it is possible, but maybe it could even be weighted to take you to a page you haven't "liked" or commented on, so it would be really a new one you haven't seen before.

I'm not a programmer, Carma, but I would guess that it takes a certain amount of code (script) to install this. We're trying to avoid things that are not really necessary, so we won't slow down our loading speed.

But hey, maybe it's not a big deal. Simon and Hans would have to answer this.

It sure is possible and wouldn't slow down the system - However, the more functions we implement, the more complicated is the navigation.

If several authors would like to have this option, I'd say: Let's do it :)

I'm absolutely not in favor, for the simple reason that it complicates the design. 

I would like a randomized function in the related articles feature though: instead of linking to the latest in a specific category, it would be better to link to the most related in that category or (second best) random links in that category.
