Randomly select a user or option

The Random element enables a random selection from a set of values. Similar to rolling a die, use this element to randomly select a user in the current room, a word from a custom list, etc.

When the Random element is "rolled", it animates by cycling over all possible values for four seconds before gradually slowing down and landing on a new, randomly selected value.
