    Default Help with Bulbapedia

    I didn't really know who to contact about this or where else to post about it, so I apologize now if this is in the wrong section. :3

    A user named Myufi came onto the IRC to get help on with the Bulbapedia. The random article button swaps between two articles, specifically this one & this one. It does the same thing to me as well when I click the random article button.

    Like I said, I wasn't sure who to contact or where to post, so I just posted here. :3 Thanks for any help, guys!

    Eh! The Random Page button switches between only two random pages at any given time, not just between the two Felly has mentioned. Every few minutes one of the two pages is replaced by a new one. Thus random pages are supplied, but extremely slowly and vexingly.

    Sorry for being so new to the forum just to ask about this; I searched for this problem elsewhere but couldn't find another report of it.

    As far as I can tell, for some reason the random page outcome has started to be cached. It's not happening for me on Firefox, but it is on both Chrome and Internet Explorer. It's not happening on Wikipedia in either, maybe it's a setting @Zhen Lin;?
    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.

    I use Firefox, & it happened to me, though. It works fine on regular old Wikipedia though.
