that giving 8 SuperCheers is going to have to count as “lots.”
I read this on the Robot blog today:
Next we thought, what feature did we build that users just never use? Maybe even a feature a lot of users actually hate! Well no feature was added to 43 Things that ever met with more hate and loathing than our one time pride and joy: SuperCheers.
We hate supercheers
We had big hopes. If someone would buy a teddy bear for a facebook friend, why not a SuperCheer to encourage a fellow 43Thingster? Well you all told us why, in about 400 angry emails denouncing SuperCheers and the wicked minds that concocted such a feature. OK good riddance.
In removing the feature we give up some revenue that supports the site but we get less hassle for not having to deal with it. We don’t have to maintain a secure server or deal with our credit card processor anymore and it simplifies things. We know about 3 of you out there actually like this feature and will miss it, and we appreciate you supporting the site. Sorry it is going away, but your sacrifice will help us slim down. The feature should be down later tonight.

My apologies to all of you (and there were quite a few) who I had planned on SuperCheering but never got around to it. I guess you’ll have to settle for regular cheers now! :P3 years ago
And I gave the Supercheers! 5 years ago
And I can’t find the Supercheers! Do they still exist? 5 years ago
goes to my sweet and dear friend, SimplyPink.
OK, nobody on her knows this except her, so keep it a secret ;) I first noticed SimplyPink because she had one of the most gorgeous avatars I had ever seen. I commented on it, but she was inactive on 43T for months and never replied to my comment. Out of the
blue pink, she came back on and replied. That started a friendship that has only continued to grow closer and deeper as time has gone on.
And, you know what? After many months of talking, I’ve come to realize that her old avatar picture is not nearly as beautiful as she is.
Cheers, LA. I love you and can’t tell you how much I value your friendship.

is going to Shelly.
Shelly’s been a friend of mine for most of the time I’ve been on 43T. One thing that I’ve learned is that a conversation with Shel is never boring. In fact, it’s often quite a challenge to keep up with her. Hey, biotch, what do you think you’re doing? I’m not getting paid to think!
Opinionated, extremely talented (I’ve bought several of her paintings), sarcastic, intelligent, hilarious… And a very good friend.
Take a bow, Shel :)
And while you’re down there… ;)5 years ago
Goes to Dharma. Not only is she clever, and funny, and incredibly beautiful, but she’s also one of the most caring and compassionate people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting on 43T.
Plus she has the priviledge of living up there in the Great White North :)
Take a bow, you hoser! You deserve it, dontcha know?! Let’s share a couple of Molsons, Eh?
Thanks for your support, caring, and friendship, Dharma.

went to heavee.
Is there anyone on this site (especially any cute women ;) ) who doesn’t know heavee? The guy has given nearly 25,000 cheers!
He’s also been a good friend for as long as I’ve been on this site. I’ve drank absinthe and shared a room in Vegas (separate beds, I swear!!) with him.
Cheers, heavee! :) 5 years ago
goes to SG, one of my newest regulars.
I don’t really know her that well yet (I hope to get to know her a lot better ;) ), but it’s been a lot of fun talking to her so far.
She joins the ever-growing list of Atlanta-area 43ers I want to meet :) 5 years ago
goes to Tiger.
She’s one of the main reasons why this goal was “Worth doing!”5 years ago
went to Hawk.
I have to admit, I don’t find him nearly as cute as many of the 43ers that I’m subbed too ;)
But he’s a good guy and pretty impressive with a rhyme, haiku, or song! :)5 years ago
my first one today :)
OK, to quantify this goal- how many is “lots?”
I’ll say at least one for each person I’m subbed to, which is 54 people. 5 years ago
I’ve never been wary of online purchases, but my bank rang me up last week to notify me that over £1K (US$2000)had been spent on my Mastercard illegally.
It’s put me off using my new one, but I would love to give 43T some cash to add to the joy they’ve given me. Can anyone reassure me? is there anything I can do to secure my payments further? 5 years ago
