    Has anyone else made the move? Fanboy's lists are dead, and from those that monitor EasyList changes its clear to see that Fanboy's time is now spent on EasyList.

    I've removed the tracking and ad blocking lists and replaced them with EasyList and EasyPrivacy available here.

    The annoyances list is also hosted with EasyList but I can't find a link to add it.

    If I'm wrong, I'm sure I'll be corrected by those with more knowledge of the situation. But, I had thought that the Annoyances list was integrated with the Privacy/Tracking lists, so there may not be a separate link anymore.

    Not from what I can see, and it would be disastrous if they did (some people like all the facebook/twitter stuff)

    They are still there but are not TPL's, per se.
    https://www.fanboy.co.nz/ (or)
    What most like to point to:
    http://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions
    If you look at the expiration date of the Fanboy IE TPL:
    http://www.fanboy.co.nz/adblock/ie/fanboy-noele.tpl
    It has an old time stamp, thus I would not use it and to jump to the question at hand as discussed elsewhere on this Forum, the Fanboy TPL's have been merged with EasyList & EasyPrivacy.

    Well, yeah, it could cause severe issues for those folks. The merger has been a bit confusing to me from the beginning. The Annoyances and several other specialty lists were at one point said to remain in the hands of Fanboy and wouldn't actually be merged, then it changed. I guess I just really have no idea where it is or what it may/may not be merged with.

    Posting links to Fanboy TPLs really is of no use to me whatsoever, or anyone else really. This thread is about moving away from dead TPLs.

    The entire annoyances list IS hosted on EasyList and IS maintained here: https://hg.adblockplus.org/easylist/file/122cf99a85d6/fanboy-addon My original query was about adding it as a TPL.

    Have you ever seen it (the personalized list) block anything? I got relates using IE9/IE10 and never seen it blocking anything. :blink:
