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.

I was going through the goals which I had given up on and spotted this one. I saw Nightwish live last summer at Rock am Ring festival in Germany. :-) 6 years ago

millamilliNightwish in November!

In November I’m going to see Nightwish in KB Hallen, in Copenhagen! It’s November 28th, one day before my dad’s birthday, hehe.

I think the new singer is great and I’m so happy, that I should see them live! :) 7 years ago

AnttiThe new singer

will be announced on May 30th. They will also release a new single (featuring the new singer) on the same day. A new album is also going to be released later this year (September 26th). Most likely they will start touring after the album release and I will finally get the chance to see them live :) 7 years ago

NecrodancerBest gig ever

Really emotional and intense.

Always wanted to do it.
I’ve done it.

Too bad about Tarja, guys. 8 years ago

AnttiIt's sad that Tarja had to leave but it's not the end of the band...

It would have been nice to see Nightwish playing live before Tarja left the band. But if they manage to find a decent singer (and I’m quite assured they will), I’d still like to see them perform. 8 years ago

atrocityYess, yess=)

Nightwish absolutely ROCKS!!! 9 years ago

HalfSaintI did it!

My wish came through when I found out that Nightwish are coming to my home town! And they did, last weekend as a part of their World Tour 2005. The concert was everything I though it would be. Tarja was amazing and so was the rest of the band. I will never forget this experience and I hope I can live to see it again. Go Nightwish \m/ 9 years ago

HiattI've been wanting too, as well

I’m been a fan of Nightwish for years. Would love to see them put on a live set. I’ve seen the videos, it must be phenomenal. They don’t do many trips to the States, let alone the western part. I still hold my hopes high. If not, I’ll probably wait it out till they goto London again since I know people there. 9 years ago

HalfSaintit's a must

I’m a big fan of Nightwish and I’d really like to see them live. Unfortunately I’m from a small country and it’s not very likely that they’ll ever visit. Still, who knows? 9 years ago
