What I miss is a way to group messages by thread, but maybe I missed something. As far as I can see, NavList is a long list of messages; for example, I wish I could see messages relating to slide rules organised in threads so I can follow the conversations.
And a way to export sets of messages for personal archival; too many sites compile great content but never think about a future where they might no longer exist; they prefer to sink together with their content...
That's a real shame.

Well, the health of NavList...I think almost everything has a life cycle, and in fact NavList as well; a tidal wave, sometimes we are in high tide and sometimes in low tide.As an example myself .I joined NavList in 1999, I have spend an important part of my life loving the sea, sailing and learning about the science and art of navigation.And it is true that in the last months, my participation in NavList decreased. In this time I have less free time; lot of work, pre-teen daughters, an elderly mother. Cycles.For me NavList is important. Over the years I have discovered many things in it, such as lunars, I have learned from different points of view and approaches.And all of them are possible thanks to each and every one of the participants.The files in NavList are a piece of gold, for present and future.And it is true that the heat of the moment in a chat is better, if possible.--Long live rock and roll.Best regards!Andrés Ruiz
