I know this is not a priority at this time but can we have a Random forum link at the bottom of the page like the Random cubit link on Cubits?

If I may be blunt *Blush* , I love the random Cubit feature at Cubits and I think it's much too small and quiet.

If you do come up with something like a random forum, I hope it's more in-your-face because I think it's a GREAT feature! Thumbs up Thumbs up

I agree! I found more than a couple of cubits I hadn't known to exist that were wonderful finds!

But there are no "cubits" here. Only forums, and a limited number of them in comparison. (There are - were - over 3000 forums at Cubits but I don't know how many cubits.) ATP is a much smaller ocean to fish in, being limited to gardening related topics.

Cubits were more or less hidden among so many varied topics. So jumping around randomly often brought a surprise. But it seem like the categories here will be limited, and easy enough to find on the homepage. Few surprises.

In my opinion, a Random Thread or Random Blog might make sense.

Rolling on the floor laughing Seriously though, the random feature on Cubits is where I met a very nice compatible friend, quietyard (Linda) almost 2 years ago, without that feature we would have never met. I'm so happy that we did, we e-mail each other on a daily basis and I really enjoy our friendship. Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up
