Description Alex Klotz 2006-07-25 02:28:46 UTC
When pressing the Random Article button on Wikipedia, I have several times been
redirected to pages that have been deleted. In addition to being an annoyance,
it makes Wikipedia itself look disorganized.

Are you talking about articles that show ?

The pages are not deleted – they are exist, but include only template which says
that they are deleted. The software can know nothing about it.
