How about a random button? Answered

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).

examples:

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. :-)
