It would be nice if I could have a link to this page for a specific category. For example:

RandomInCategory/History

That would just take me to a random page in the history category. As Quiddity also requested, it would be nice if we could also have a NOT descriptor, which would allow users to exempt entire sections. For example: Let's say I want to see random pages in the History category, but I don't want anything sports related. A URL link this would be nice to perform that function:

RandomInCategory/History/Not/Sports

Or something like that. Just a suggestion from a donor.

Is it possible to use, or add, a NOT function with this feature?

w:sv: has 2 links in their sidebar for random pages, the second ("-bot") links to a tool that excludes bot-generated articles from the results.

I was wondering if instead we could help solve this problem, by using (or extending) RandomInCategory to work with a NOT parameter?

e.g. Special:RandomInCategory/NOT(foobar) or something similar.
