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.

purplefibermom in Atlanta is doing 27 things including…

beg the robots to implement a "fail" or "incomplete" option for our goals, so that we don't have to delete them or lie about accomplishing them, and beg other 43T users to join me in lobbying for this option ASAP!! please?

3 cheers


purplefibermom has written 2 entries about this goal

I'm confused

Some are saying that this is done, the robots have answered our pleas. But I’m not seeing any little button that allows me to do anything other than “I’ve done this”. Am I missing something?

If you delete a goal, you lose the entries

as well as all the cheers. And your cheerer loses the cheers given? Correct? One more reason to implement this dear robots!

pretty please?

with a cherry on top?
