Make pages accessed from Special:Random display a redirect notice
Open, LowPublic


It'd be nice to have redirect notices like "redirected from Special:Random" on top of articles accessed that way; Then, we could click that link to get another random page. This would be especially useful for custom random pages like [[Special:Random/talk]].

Correction: I meant to write "redirect notices like 'redirected from Special:Random'". I'm afraid the comment doesn't make much sense otherwise.

It would be nice to present something more user-friendly than "redirected from Special:Random" or "redirected from Special:Random/Talk". Maybe something like "Another random page" or "Another random page in the Talk namespace"
