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.

SessygailHere's a thought...

IF 43T does finally stop letting us make new entries, maybe we could pick up the story of the Monkey and the Bull Toad/Frog or the pick a word pairs over on that other site…since part of the angst in saying goodbye here is the loss of exchanges such as these…? 4 months ago

Collectorofcats Another word game

This time I will start out with a word and the next person adds a word that goes with it. Example I type the word river the next person types in a word that can be attached to it like dance so together we have river_dance. The next person sees the word dance and types in a word that can follow it like craze so together we have dance_craze. And so on and so on.
I’ll start:

Let’s see who can come up with a word to follow new4 months ago

The Warrior Queen & The Jellied EelAnother chain game:

Answer the question (with some detail if possible please, not just ‘yes’ or ‘no’ ;D) then pose another ‘Have you ever…” question for the next person along.


Ok, first question:

Have you ever lied to your boss?

SessygailWhy I didn't join this goal sooner...

Will forever remain a mystery to me. But man, oh,man, have I had fun with it since the supposed shutdown here! Thanks to everyone who has played these past few days. I have joined the popclogs version of this one. 4 months ago

Collectorofcats Which is better?

Clearing out my life list of all those goals I’m working on but won’t finish before it becomes a read only site ….or leaving it up as it is?
I have nothing to hide. I’ve transferred goals over to Popclogs that I’d like to continue. 4 months ago

OasisOfCalmIf you had created this website...

and you had to call it ”...things” but couldn’t be 43 things, since that’s what it actually was called, what would you have called it? 4 months ago

aswedishlimeLiking all the word play.....

How about building a story six words at a time?

I start, someone writes six words, and it keeps passing until who knows when? You can chime back in, if you’d like after, six turns. If the story comes to a good conclusion, you may end appropriately with “The End.”

SessygailMight I say...

That I have enjoyed this flurry of wit and wisdom tonight? (See how I cleverly phrased it as a question so as to have it fit this goal? Oops, I did it again!)

Sadly, I must go to sleep now. If, when I awake in the morning, I can no longer post or cheer, please know that I would have shared the remaking cheers that you showered me with tonight right back at you! Good night, your dear people of 43Things. 4 months ago
