What feature are you talking about?

In the 'leftovers' Nodelet there is a link called 'Random Node'. It does what it says on the tin and goes to a random node - mostly one where permission is denied.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    The codebase of the whole monastery is - with the exception of some basic modules - just a collection of nodes. Even their revision system is based on nodes.

    So it's not surprising if they are sometimes prohibited.

    Random Node doesn't seem to care if you are entitled to see those nodes, even as a pmdev I'm not allowed to access all nodes - at least officially.

    I haven't activated the Leftovers Nodelet anyway, I wouldn't care much about that feature.

      Like I said in the original's not a big deal... might not have activated Leftovers Nodelet, but it is on by default to new Monks.
