Quote from: Mr. Fidget on July 10, 2014, 02:29:17 PM This might be a SMF thing, I just thought it was worth mentioning. Since there are so many threads, and so many topics... I think it might be interesting, and thought provoking to have a "random topic button" taking one into the lottery that would be "topic roulette." With everyone having their personal bias about what interests them it might be fun to "take a chance" at broadening one's horizons. Just an idea, one perhaps already available I have not noticed. I'll go poke around SMF, and report back.[attachimg=1]Image by Ralf Roletschek CC BY-SA 3.0Â©
Quote from: MV on July 10, 2014, 02:55:47 PMi think it's a great idea and it's something i've wanted to do in the past. however, there's no packaged mod that can be installed to do this, and i don't have the ability to make it happen otherwise.

I just had the idea while being befuddled by the sheer volume of information available. I'll not be making any cliche' "great minds" jokes, but I will speculate that perhaps I tuned into a "time travel" anomaly, a residual of past hopes and wishes within the voluminous data on BG. Maybe it's time has come![attachimg=1]Source image by Ralf Roletschek CC BY-SA 3.0Modified by Mr. Fidget
Quote from: eddie dean on July 10, 2014, 04:39:40 PMThis would be a fun feature, but I don't know how useful or popular it would be. For me, I typically only visit 5-10 threads I find interesting and a few of the new threads that pop up. MF, I wouldn't worry about trying to read the entire forum, unless you are looking for a challenge. It would be the Bellgab equivalent to reading War & Peace, Mission Earth & Atlas Shrugged!
