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.

Kiwa I got a place where all my dreams are dead.

grow wings (read all 3 entries…)

This is rather entertaining.

But seriously now, who the fuck commits suicide because of some dudes “trolling”.


the_illusionist is creating illusions, not delusions

That would be weird

Its probably a little deeper than that. Maybe some family issues. This probably just sent them over the edge…

Tisa Wings If it's going to be, it's up to me.

I think to say such a thing like that is heartless.

Especially when you have no fucking idea what the person has gone through in his/her lifetime.

_ people who act like that are why our world is being destroyed.

Read below. This is called victimising.

And really now, suicidal people don’t exactly yell out loud that they are going to suicide.

Eden 幻想 黒いなれ

As everyone else said, past things in their lives, but I think it’s more or less a lack of things to aim for, not to sound rude. I read a book once, and a character in that book commited suicide, and one of the main characters commented on “He ran out of dreams.” obviously not word for word, and from the second I read that I realised that’s why simple things like this can lead someone to do it. But Oh Well.

Do you guys truly think that people suicide when they threathen to? If it were to happen like that, half of the dragon goal, for example, (and I’m sure it’s not the only goal) would be dead.

Kiwa has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
