Fine from my side by now but up to the admins on-wiki to do.

How can we help?

I guess admins (or interface admins only?) can access to the menu bar content and add this "random Lexeme" link :)

What should be the link, though? Special:Random will always return items and I can't find anything for lexemes...

Wouldn't it be much better if we just counted lexeme (and property) as a content namespace ( https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgContentNamespaces ) ?

Community consensus discussion was at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Project_chat/Archive/2019/08#Random_lexeme_to_the_sidebar ; not sure what the outcome was. Reopening as tasks shouldn't be stalled for too long without a clear reason.

Now that there is a dedicated section for lexic. data in the Wikidata sidebar, I was bold and added the link there: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Sidebar&curid=112&diff=1304772560&oldid=1297734550 Hopefully, the caches will expire and it will soon be visible.
