How about a random button?

What if the developers were able to incorporate a random button that would send you to any user created page on the site? I feel like it's rather boring to keep looking through pages of these amazing creations and alterations but it seems endless with 6,000+ pages to look through. I feel like this would be a pretty neat idea. What's your feedback on this?

We did have a random option (but it disappeared with the latest site update).

If you still want to view projects randomly, you can by clicking on Explore, then add:

?sort=random

to the end of the page URL. (You can also do this by category).

Do they have any patch notes on why they removed it?
I'm not sure why they removed it. You could send an inquiry to info@instructables.com. If enough members are upset that it was removed, they may opt to put it back. :-)
