*Submissions must show the reply contact as the sender’s email address.

Everyone Making Submissions Needs To Read This Next Item !

Standardizing Names & Email Addresses: From now on I will insert the Sender’s name and email address automatically into posts as the Contact name/email, replacing any other email address or name the post may contain. The Submission Rules clearly explain that only the Sender’s email address may be included in posts, and it must include the Sender’s first name. You may substitute a phone number and ask me to leave out any email address. This action is required as I currently have to return too many faulty submissions for correction; Senders either having incorrectly typed email addresses that later require I run a correction, or the submission having the Contact email/name different from the Sender’ email/name. I will use the following format: examplename AT gmail DOT com.

Holiday Publication Schedule: There will be no issues of DigameXtra on Tuesday Dec. 25th, Wednesday Dec. 26th, Tuesday Jan. 1st and Wednesday Jan. 2nd. Sponsor ads that fall on these days will be posted the next issue.
