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.

The Memorial Service

was very moving. Capt Nemo and I just watched this live broadcast from Queensland, and we couldn’t manage without a box of tissues. His family will have been so proud. Goodbye Steve. We will all miss you so much. Again our thoughts and prayers go out to all his loved ones x

Goodbye, mate

Steve Irwin will be long remembered and I am leaving my avatar in honour of him for at least a while longer.

It's 9-13

But I think I’ll keep Steve up for a while longer.

Probably until I find another good avatar.

Or another avatar week lol.

Just a...

...word of thanks to everyone who joined this goal or the teams.

It is a simple, small way to tribute Steve Irwin.

R.I.P. Steve Irwin
1962-2006

He will be missed.

Missed

I watched Crocodile Hunter on TV today. I hadn’t seen it in so long. Watching the show made me remember why so many people loved him. He cared so much for all animals. In the episode I watched he got to swim with a mother whale and her baby in the ocean. He just seemed overjoyed by that experience. So few people get to enjoy their life like he did and he educated others while doing what he loved. He is greatly missed and my heart goes out to his family.

Still hard to believe

For some reason it just doesn’t seem possible that a man with so much energy and vitality could be gone so quickly. It just doesn’t seem right.

I wish there were more I could do to honor this man – but this goal is a great small gesture to show that he had an impact on me and will be missed.

Thank you, Steve, and may you be at peace. My thoughts are with your family in this difficult time. I only hope that this great outpouring of love can be of some comfort to them in the days and weeks to come.

My idea...

I think that 43T has had many avatar weeks.

David Hasselhoff week, Flower Week, X-Men Week, Disney Cartoon Character Week, Super Hero Week, ‘The Thundercats’ program, Hanna Barbera Cartoon Character, College Week.

With the loss of Steve Irwin, I am declaring {at least, it can go on longer} 9-5 to 9-12 Steve Irwin Avatar Week.
