We’re sad to announce that we won’t be updating PocketCultures for the time being.

We’ve had a great time over the last few years; we’d like to thank everyone who has participated and especially to our amazing contributors from all over the world. It’s been a privilege to be part of this community of international readers and writers, and we’ve really enjoyed reading the content and discussions.

PocketCultures has always been run entirely by volunteers, and unfortunately we got to the point where there wasn’t enough volunteer time available to keep the site going and take it to the next level so it could continue to grow.

Over the years we tried to find a revenue source which would allow us to pay our editors and writers; unfortunately we didn’t manage it so now that key members of the team are no longer in a position to volunteer their time, we have taken the difficult decision to stop updating.

PocketCultures will stay online, however, and we hope that you will continue to enjoy our content. It is licensed with Creative Commons so you are free to reuse it as long as you attribute PocketCultures as the original source.

Thanks again to our readers and everyone else who has been part of this fantastic adventure.
