    Went looking for "The List" to verify some stuff on my Micro HD channel list last weekend and it's not there anymore? It used to be down at the bottom of the page but now it's missing? :deadhorse2

    Yes it's the SatGuys 2016 Style that is missing it. The 2017 style has it where it belongs.

    I don't look at the list very often and it doesn't show up with the dark theme. I prefer the dark theme because it's easier on my eyes. It doesn't look like the 2017 theme can be shown with the dark background.

    The List hasn’t been updated for almost two years.

    I couldn’t find anyone to take it over so we are in the process of removing it.

    You don't really need it when you have lyngsat.

    Lyngsat isn't necessarily updated very often either. I like Sathint

    Sathint isn't even updated very often anymore. I use this one most often, as it's updated constantly and it's about 99% accurate IMO: Satellite Charts - Search

    I wouldn't call it 99% accurate; it mentions several very old (2014) feeds on 87 Ku that are long gone.

    All the satellite chart websites that I know are struggling to be kept up to date, and each has its own positive and negative points:

    - Lyngsat is quite clear and easy to read, but is a bit slow on the updates at least for the Americas
    - SatHint seems to be a bit behind on updates and has some duplicate satellites
    - SatBeams is great for the maps, but almost useless at this point for the charts for the Americas. Probably quite good for Europe though
    - PortalEDS is probably the best for those satellites that cover South American and that we can get from here. It's in Portuguese and in Spanish but that's not really a problem.
    - Tvrosat is very good at updating the charts for C-Band for the main satellites visible form the US/Canada. The focus is clearly on C-Band though, and it's missing a lot of charts, notably in Ku band satellites (it lists only 3 transponders on 97W Ku!)

    In the end, I monitor Lyngsat, tvrosat and portalEDS for updates. None of them are perfect, but all are useful.
