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.

Today the journal came back in the post:/ I don’t know why. I can’t understand the Portuguese on the package, but I will ask the post office tomorrow.

I’m so sorry! I must have done something wrong:( I’ll resend it as soon as possible. Again, sorry to keep everyone waiting even longer.

As a Phoenix Rising i'm so incredibly sad about the loss of 43T

When I have needed to translate

foreign languages I have used Babel.com

I’ve heard there is a better translation site, but I can’t remember what it is.

I wouldn’t worry about the journal’s extra journey. =) I’d write about it in the journal so it becomes part of the charm!

I figured it out

It says: “the name of the receiver is not known by the people that actually live in the adress indicated.”

The problem was the actual letters, that were incomprehensible, but I asked a Portuguese:-)
Zijue is trying to get in contact with the reciever, so now we’ve just decided to wait a bit.

That’s a good idea to write about it, I’ll see if I get the time! Thanks:-)

Well it’s good that the journal didn’t get lost. :)

Bon voyage encore, journal! :)
