This template returns a "random" item from the set specified in as parameters.
The "random" number is based on the date/time in seconds + an offset. The default update by seconds means that the selected options are updated every page refresh - you can change the seed to a different time using the "seed" parameter. The offset allows you to use the random selector at multiple points in the page and get different results (just add a new number for each instance)
Internal use only.
This template is used by Template:RandomWikiHomeCategory.
The parameters are:
