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.

New IsabellaGoodbye, relatively mild & pleasant Summer Solstice with SUN AVATAR WEEK for 2012...

...which was capped by a delightfully chilly morning today! Last year it seems that mid-June here was a lot hotter and more oppressive, and I chose a desert sun. This year’s solstice avatar week was much more enjoyable.

However, the next four days here are forecast with highs of 100F. Arrggh. Hello summer! 2 years ago

I guess so, according the the calendar. I’m going to keep my summer sum avatar for a few more days to remind me to get outside and enjoy the Summer! 2 years ago

I’ve changed my avatar on here before, but right now 43 Things is not co-operating with me. Can someone tell me the steps to change this? I’ve already got the sun in my “profile picture” (three times, in fact,) but 43 things won’t make the change! 2 years ago

dragonfly35I'm not usually into the avatar goals

but I loved the sun avatars I found last year – and for the first year in recent memory, I’m not working full time so I should get into the spirit of summer for sure! This will be fun. :) 2 years ago
