Just a short note because most of you will (hopefully) not notice anything different. If you use both 43 Things and 43 Places, you have been logging in to both with your 43 Things account. Weâ€™re splitting them apart, so now you have separate 43 Things and 43 Places accounts. All existing users have had their usernames and passwords copied over, so you have the same urls, same usernames, and same passwords as before.
If youâ€™re having trouble logging in, I apologize for any bugs, and pleaseÂ contact us so we can get things sorted out.
If youâ€™re curious about our reasons for doing this, itâ€™s mostly to reduce confusion (with things like logging in with facebook, closing accounts, etc) as we develop the two sites in different directions. If you havenâ€™t had a look at 43 Places in a while, go take a look.
I have a question: Would it be possible, someday in the future, to click on a blue place on the “Where youâ€™ve been” map and be brought to a list of visited places within the state/country you clicked?
Iâ€™m asking because California shows up as visited and Iâ€™ve never been. I would have to search all 650 places to see if any were in California to fix it and Iâ€™m not crazy about doing it that way.
Weâ€™re thinking about a similar feature (sorting and filtering your list by country/state/city/etc), but that wonâ€™t be live for a while now. I looked up your account, and it looks like the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood is marked as visited. If thatâ€™s incorrect you can go unmark it at its place page:
Thanks for using 43 Places!
Oh, thank you, Laurel, youâ€™re an angel!
I deleted it but my map still shows California as blue. Iâ€™m assuming it takes a bit to refresh though.
Iâ€™ve been using 43 Places since 2006 and itâ€™s only been getting better! I love it. It feeds my wanderlust.
Yeah, some things are cached for a few minutes or hours. It looks like California has now been erased from your map…
Thanks for the info Laurel. I thought this had been done a while ago when 43Places was put on its own server.
