Unable to Display List in SharePoint Page

You would have got an error something similar to this, at least once in your sharepoint journey ...

"The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user"
This is primarily happening because of a reference missing or corrupted webpart, So quick tip to get out of this situation first:

Step 1. Try and find which list is causing the issue, so get to the SharePoint maintanence page
if you append "?contents=1" to your site URL you will get into the maintanence page
Eg. ?contents=1

Step 2. Once the webpart is removed try and scope where the problem is, you can use SharePoint logs for this.

I thought of jotting this out, as a quick pointer in panic mode....
