random thread generator??


noticing that the wiki has a view random page link http://www.sciencemadness.org/smwiki/index.php/Special:Rando...

would that be possible with threads here for instance http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=5
http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=20000
tid (thread id) with an low number will show older posts and the higher numbers are the newer posts the deleted pages from all of the spam which creates gaps in the numbers.

Mood: Metastable, and that's good enough.

I have thought of this before and even had a play of picking "random" thread numbers.
Historical threads are interesting.

I could not see a straightforward way to automate the process. Less than a quarter of the thread numbers used are actual threads.
(Thread count now is around 144300. From Stats, number of threads is a little over 33000.)

So >3/4 of the threads are spams that got deleted?

Maybe. There may be other reasons too.
Spam has been an issue for at least a decade. And a bot that produces a thread every 25 seconds is far more active than a member with well-constructed high-content posts. So the numbers are not surprising. Although it irks my OCD tendencies, I don't see that particular statistic as problematic to the functioning of the board.
