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.

I am so excited...

I have 10 days to kill a vampire hunter and I will have the ability to see money in peoples pockets and vampire hunters at a distance… How hard can this be….


Did you get perception?

It’s pretty awesome, I must say!

I am so upset...

With only 12 hours left and 20 some odd movement points I found a vampire hunter! I moved in for the kill over and over and over and over again… I used up all of my blood, I was a walking corpse but alas, I was soon out of points and the vampire hunter was still as healthy as healthy could be… As soon as I got a couple of movement points back I tried again, but the vampire hunter was gone.

So, the long and the short of it is, I don’t have perception and I am $7500 the poorer….

Damn perception! I really want perception! Ironically, I just killed a vampire hunter yesterday. I was out of moves, so th 4000 and change that I got from him went to every other vampire that robbed me afterwards….


I so did it! It only took one day this time. Now I am an awesome robber. No more wasting time trying to rob poor vampires, no siree, I only rob the rich!

That I will be a vampire hunter, hunter from now on. They do pay very well. I now need thievery 3 and then celerity 2. I am on my way!


Now I am a fresh corpse again. Maybe I won’t be a vampire hunter, hunter. It may be a lot of money, but they keep killing me.

As for the yellow rich people, I have only come across one and when I robbed him I got a lousy 28 coins….

I need theivery 3!

Yeah, it's not always great

Sometimes, I fail to rob even the yellow people! I have gotten a big chunk a few times, but sometimes it’s only a coin or two, maybe 10. I haven’t been able to get any guild whereabouts lately…so I’ve been collecting blood and coins, which is still good. I’m up to a little over 1000 pints and 14000 something coins!


If you aren’t the best little vampire around! I even know where all of the guilds are located and I am way behind you!! 1000 pints!! I am embarrassed to be called your father! I just found a yellow person with a blood value of 2. I am thinking he just knocked off some vampire hunter and I couldn’t rob him! What is your next goal?

I'm thinking

thievery 3 or celerity 2. I want both of course, but celerity is a bit intimidating. I got celerity 1 by paying for it, and from what you said, it’s a lot of work…but you gotta work for what you want!
