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.

Absnasm Thanks 43T. You made me and my life better. I'll miss you very much.

Vote for Andy on the BKFK contest (read all 3 entries…)
Oh noes! His lead is slipping! But I've found a loophole.

I’ve been voting every day, first thing when I get up, but I’ve just realised that I can vote from work too – different IP address. Sneaky deaky! I might pop over to the other computer and vote from there too. I’m getting competitive.

Me Too

I voted from home this morning, and again from work now. I’m amazed at how in just 9 hours, that other show has now gotten 42% of the vote compared to Andy’s 31%. Something funky is going on with the voting for there to be that big of a change in just 9 hours.

I think there’s another issue…the voting is a cookie. You can delete your cookies and vote again from the same computer. It doesn’t know IPs – it just knows your cookie.

Well, I voted again today and he got my cookie test vote too!

a cookie?

Thanks for the votes!
