Here you will find a list of Elite Exploration-related resources of all kinds, sorted in categories and subcategories. Entries are up-to-date as much as possible, which means that quite a lot of outdated resources and threads have not been kept from dognosh's and Dr. Kaii's collection threads; as hasn't been material that is not considered knowledge resource or tool, such as non-historical diaries. Were also left aside outdated or abandonned applications.
We probably missed a lot of other resources, so please farm your bookmarks to find what's not here. Media resources must clearly be above the average, bring something unique and preferably still be regularly updated. Have yet to be added: Expeditions archives (completed expeditions; we have the list), large/open player groups of explorers or exploration-friendly (we only have a few items so far).
App tags resources that need to be installed on a computer.
★ tags premium resources and tools.
Beginners and newcomers to exploration, you will find at the end of this post a list of beginner-oriented guides to help you getting started. They're all quality resources.
Here's the previous reference thread, Dognosh's collection thread, which lists, amongst other numerous things, the logs and diaries I decided not to keep here.
If you're looking for more generic resources, including all aspects of Elite: Dangerous, I invite you to check Alec Turner's epic collection thread (we're on a contest to know who has the biggest).

FROM NOW ON
A lot of threads here could benefit from a solid overhaul or update, whereas other could be synthesized (i.e., the three threads on the exploration slang could be mashed up in a single one). If some writers would like to take over shaping some older resources to a better and more up-to-date standard, please make yourself known!
