From bug 3946: page_random is 0 for many pages, excluding them from "random
I could see that it is possible to suppress displaying pages in
[[special:Random]] and its variants as [[commons:special:Random/Image]],
It would be a good oportunity to be able to control if a page is shown with
special:Random or not. It would be a community decision to use this feature or not.
At http://yi.wiktionary.org/wiki/special:Prefixindex/%E2%80%AB you see pages
with *invalid titles* which should be deleted at some point in time but which
still are available until
bug 3819: strip phantom general punctuation characters from page titles
bug 3887: create a special page for instring search of titles specifying %nn values
are fixed and bots are able to identify pages and characters mentioned in bug 3887.
Another benefit would be that contributors could start articles (as in [[news:]]
etc.) using __NORANDOM__ in the first draft and delete __NORANDOM__ from the

I'll vote for this feature, but I think wiki communities should use it very conservatively. Generally speaking, it shouldn't be
used to mark articles as unworthy. [[User:Melchoir]]
Votes on this BugZilla tend to be ignored. I use mine as a sort of watchlist,
and I know most of our developers don't bother to look at them.
I think this would be a very good feature. For example it would make
[[n:Portal:Australia/2006/January/11]] stop showing up when you goto
[[n:special:Random/portal]]. Another intreasting thing would to be able to maake
subpages not appear in special:random
