Just noticed it. Clicked on it a few times. Am I correct in assuming that it just picks a random thread from years ago and sends you there? :) If that's what it is, cool idea.

Mastery does not occur when you've performed a feat once or twice. Instead, it comes after years of training, when you realize that you no longer notice when you're performing a feat which used to require so much effort. Even walking takes years of training for a human: why not everything else?

Yep.  :)  And if it actually works correctly, it should filter out only threads you have access to.  The feature did not undergo very extensive testing, but seems to work.

I also think we as a community should start being more lenient toward replies to very old threads, provided that the reply is actually adding some new information that would be relevant after a long time or to new readers, or is asking a new question on the old topic.  (We really do have quite a large repository of threads on a large number of topics, many of which are still worth discussing with newer understanding.)
