Rules & Regulations:

The blog and it’s readership are growing, and I anticipate a big readership jump in the high-season. These updated rules are necessary to keep it manageable. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Send in your text & photos- The address for your submissions is digamextra@protonmail.com The Deadline is 4pm. One pic per item or event only, readers can email you for more. Three For Sale items per day max. Include all sale items/pics for that day in single email. For Sale items must include a price.
Photos & Documents- JPEG or JPG format only. No PDFs or Word documents.
Keep Submissions As Short As Possible- If you have more than a paragraph of text content just submit a short description and a link to a site where interested readers can find it.
Re-Submissions- What’s On events may post once a week, Services Offered once a month. Sale items previously posted must wait 1 month before re-submitting, and the price must have been lowered by at least 20%.
Put your post header in the “subject” line of the email (RE:).
Capital Letters – Please don’t write anything in ALL CAPITALS!
Bars, Bands, Restaurants Clubs & Charities – Please limit your entries to One per Week! I suggest you list your programme of events & send it Tue/ Wed for inclusion in the Thursday Issue. You will get better results if you give folks 2 or 3 days advance notice of an upcoming event so they can plan in advance.
Identification Information from Everyone – I will not publish your submission unless you have included your first name and location. I can get your email address from your submission. WHY? You don’t have to register a verified account here to submit posts, like on Facebook, but the trade-off is you do need to include identification for the protection of the Publisher. That is one of the big differences between social media and blogs. Each has it’s own constantly evolving set of laws and rules to be followed. Some may find it intrusive, but this is progress in the digital age! -Ed.
Health Professionals- Your submissions must include a Licence Number and name the issuing authority. You may offer a lecture on healing without credentials, but to offer healing as a service credentials are required. Why? Sorry to say, but there have been several submissions making false credential claims. This way you can verify it for yourself. So this is for the protection of all. -Ed.
Recommendations- I am accepting recommendations again, but only if submitter includes their own name, town and email!

Faulty Submissions: Incomplete submissions will be returned for correction. Resubmit full corrected submissions, returned submissions are deleted immediately from my Inbox.

DigameXtra cannot be responsible for incorrect info in reader posts or event announcements.
Anonymous submissions are unacceptable.

The decision what to post is the Editor’s. The Editor’s Decision is Final!
