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.

give away my "City of Heroes" trial codes
You know you want to play!

I have six trial codes to give away for this game. Two 14-day trial codes and four 10-day trial codes. You don’t have to already have the game (and I don’t think you have to have a CC either for the trials; don’t quote me on that, though). You can download it from the site and use the code. I’ve only managed to successfully give away maybe two. It’s a MMORPG, just so we’re clear.

And if you’re already playing. I just made new characters since I just updated to the Good vs. Evil edition of CoH.

@Digital Tempest – that’s me. I play on Liberty as a villain named Dark Threnody. She’s a SS/INV Brute. Make sure you send a tell if you invite me to a team. I don’t accept blind invites. :-)



Give 1000 cheers (read all 13 entries…)
Cheer 1000!

Total Cheers Given: 1000

Cheer 1000 went to Serastar’s quest to complete “The Artist’s Way.” I just knew that entry had to get my 1000th cheer because I still haven’t completed it, but I think I’ll add that to my 43things now. :-)
