This page is supplementary to Bug report 30 and this forum thread. Each section lists the results of 50 uses of Random page functionality with the page length threshold set to different values (currently 100 bytes on the live wiki, which is passed by over 15000 cluster main pages). According to Special:LongPages and as of Jan 2010, setting the threshold to 10000 would include about 2500 pages into the random draw (15000: 1600 pages; 20000: 1100; 35000: 400; 50000: 200). Subpages have been excluded from random display.
