DigameXtra No. 976, Saturday, June 16th 2018

Welcome to DigameXtra !

The content of this blog site comes from its subscribers/followers, but is subject to editing at the Editor’s discretion. The Editor is Naythan.

Subscribe/follow to receive daily issues by email and gain submitting privileges. Following on FaceBook alone does not give you submission privileges, for that you must follow this blog by email.

Instructions and rules for subscribing/following and for making submissions are at the bottom of every issue. By making a submission you are indicating you have read and agree to follow the rules. Incorrect submissions are returned. Sorry, no more phone calls to get missing info.


There has been enough time to read the important announcements regarding recent rules updates and new GDPR (EU Internet Privacy) laws. I have moved them to the bottom of the page. Almost everyone is now sending in correctly formatted submissions, thanks, it really makes my job easier!

Submissions must show the reply contact as the sender’s email address. By EU internet privacy law only the email address of the sender is allowed.

Announced on TRE Radio. New laws have been enacted requiring websites in Spain, that wish to advertize vacation rentals, to register and submit copy to some agency. Begins this September.  I will not be doing this. So beginning July 1st only long term (11 month minimum) property rental listings will be accepted in the For Rent section. Sorry.

Still more new legal stuff: Many submissions include Whatsapp contact numbers. Whatsapp is not GDPR Law compliant. You use it at your own risk. DigameXtra cannot be responsible should you choose to do so.
