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.

I can't preview my new entries before I save them...

I suppose this is a problem with the new changes going on here right now, and I hope it will be fixed soon.

Yay! SEARCH is working again!

I noticed this week that the Search feature is working again for tags and goals and people, too!

Thanks, Robots, for fixing it. :)

What happened to the "search" feature at the top line of the screen on the right side?

I used to be able to search for people and for goals. Earlier this week it stopped returning any results for people. Now it has stopped returning any results for goals. The only thing I get in the search result are tags.

This is very upsetting.

I've learned something new today about 43-Things...

Last night I unintentionally set my PC clock back to June 2008. That caused all kinds of problems when trying to use 43-Things.

Fatigue last night....

caused me to forget that I have to click “change” (in small letters on the upper right side of the screen) after clicking “I’ve done this” on the goal screen, in order to then select either “Worth Doing” or “Not Worth Doing” for the completed goal. Thanks to flutter for the answer!

Possible senility or maybe bad eyesight?

I’ve marked 2 goals as “done” today, but as far as I could see, neither one gave me the opportunity to select “worth doing” or “not worth doing.” Did I miss something? I thought that in the past, right after I clicked “I’ve done this,” I was able to make that selection. But I couldn’t see it today.


I want to:
