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.

"paint 2000 points II"

Over the last week I undercoated 25 Space Marine and a dreadnought. I have some more work to do, but they should be completed by the end of June.

The paint jobs are not going to be fancy, just a three color minimum.



Say farewell to 43Things :(
"hard to say"

So hard to say goodbye to 43things. I have been on here a long time, and seen a lot of users come and go. Also, I have documented a lot of life experiences here. I will keep using this site until the end.

Still, all good things must end. I have moved over to PopClogs, so look me up when you get the chance.



Report 4500 SPAM accounts for 2014 (read all 7 entries…)
"catch up"

Did 175 reports since my last entry, which gives me 4500 for the year. This goal is completed.

Sadly, he may be a case of too little too late, as the rumor has it the site is going to be closed. If true, I will miss it.
