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.

Give 1,000 Cheers to my friends on 43Things! (read all 3 entries…)
Has anyone noticed

that there seems to be a paucity of cheers lately? I used to get so many and now most of the time when I log on, it’s 0.

Is it just me?

You aren't the only one

On Friday I mentioned here that it seemed like cheers were only being awarded once a day, unlike previously where they seemed to be given soon after you received a cheer.

I did notice today, though, that after defending a couple members on NW that I received cheers to use immediately.

Maybe the glitch is fixed?

Oh yes, that’s right – I did see that post.

That’s the same thing I’ve experienced, which makes it hard to converse or encourage other ppl, since they may never even notice your comment without the cheer….

I did receive

a cheer or two for your cheers today- hopefully you’re seeing the same.

Lol – I did get cheers for your comments, which I gave back to you in this conversation. I think we’re just trading them back and forth! ;)
