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.

Just got a letter back saying that they’re not accepting my claim without a copy of my eticket. They were at least nice enough to send my boarding pass back to me, so that if I ever do get my hands on the eticket I can resubmit everything. They also informed me that travel agencies keep records of things like e-tickets, so I’ll see if I can track it down that way. 7 years ago


I sent everything off.

I still have no idea if they will give me the miles since I don’t have an e-ticket reciept. I am convinced that I never got one, I have an email confirmation/itinerary from the travel agency. And I still couldn’t find the boarding pass for my return flight.

I’ve done all I can do. Now to wait. The website says 2 months to process. 7 years ago

energySo far

I must send in

  • both boarding passes
  • e-ticket reciept
  • A written letter
I have:
  • one boarding pass
  • email confirmation.
  • A draft of a written letter

Is the confirmation the same as the e-ticket? I have no idea. Does “written letter” mean that it must by handwritten? If so, what a stupid rule. When I get back to work I’ll ransack my desk, again, for the missing documents and send it all off. Even if I only get miles for the one flight, its still worth the time.

I can’t just give up like I did last time. If I had all the miles they owed me, I’d have enough for a trip to europe! Most of those are past the deadline, but I won’t let them cheat me out of the miles from my last trip. 7 years ago
