Idea: A website where the 404 page just instantly redirects to a random page on the site, in the hopes that it was the one you were looking for

@Ocean22@niu.moe That would confuse the user more 😇
We usually place search boxes there so they can try looking for whatever they are looking for, if available.

@Ocean22 Bonus points if you manage to destroy the universe if the redirect was wrong.

@marissaChan

The 404 page can also redirect AGAIN to the 404 page because it's also counted as a page on the site, if this happens 404 times in a row (very very rare) you'll get a shiny version of the next page you get after the last 404

@Ocean22 this is the innovation we need in computing!!!!

@Ocean22 sounds crazy but maybe funny. I actually plan on adding games to all my 404 pages of future websites

@Ocean22 but it also shows a warning, and there's also ability to rate redirection, and RNG is actually a neural net.

@Ocean22 better yet, as we are talking neural nets now, it should predict what content user wants to see, and returns it instead of 404. We will have to find a lot of people navigating to 404 page in search of some content, but in the end the site will be endless!

@Ocean22 what about for people who came to the website from a search engine?

Clearly those people should be sent to some random website somewhere on the internet.
