Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

April here, there, everywhere.


It’s kind of saddening to see how this place has been abandoned. Although I can’t blame anyone because a lot of people here never had their wish granted. Despite the lies, arguements, and false hope, I think people enjoyed being here and talking to others who support them and/or share the same dream as they do. I didn’t want to become a mermaid, but I did enjoy coming here and having conversations with the others.

Honestly, from what I’ve seen, and I’m not trying to hurt anyone, I don’t think a human being is capable of achieving this. I don’t know everything though, and I could definitely be wrong, but don’t make this dream your entire life. I’ve seen people dedicate so much of themselves to this, and simply end up being hurt in the end. It’s okay to dream, just keep your feet on the ground.

Have a nice life, everyone~

Watermoon Haven't been on in years because of COLLEGE...

Very, very dead.

Hi guys~
I haven’t been on in YEARS, I think. Maybe months.

Anyway, I agree with you April (even though I haven’t talked to you in forever).

I wish I could keep believing regular humans can be mermaids, but it’s a dream too far from real.
Keep trying though, if you really believe this spell works. If any of you new users have noticed, it hasn’t worked for anyone else. Just thought I’d mention that in case anyone was wondering.

I’m in college, so obviously I don’t have time to get on this site anymore :(
Maybe I’ll get on once again, maybe not, I hope so.
I’ve still got my lovely daughter if you’re curious :) She loves mermaids.

There’s an update on my life. Goodbye all :3

~Okami Ryn~ What You are is Irrelevant, All that Matters is who you are Inside~

I have to agree wiht you Watermoon (If you don’t remember me I was Arya/Okami back in 2009) It’s sad, but true, at least with this spell, It’s not possible.

Glad to hear that your daughter is doing well though.

Much Luck everyone!
