How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

DigameXtra Office Summer Hours: The office is closed from Friday at 9pm until 9pm Sunday. I don’t do anything DigameXtra related during this time slot. DoctorLaptop continues to work Monday thru Saturday as usual.

Internet Services like Facebook, Instagram & WhatsApp have been been experiencing problems over the last few days. If you are having problems viewing these sites, like pages and photos failing to display, you are not alone. This is the third major outage in recent months as the media giants experience problems processing all the data they steal from their users. If they were not so greedily consuming all their users personal data this would be easily avoided. All the more reason to have your own website rather than relying on these services.

ONLY GIVE NEW COMERS THE WEBSITE http://www.digameXtra.com, DO NOT HAND OUT THE EMAIL ADDRESS!!! Be sure to tell them they must subscribe and read the Submissions Rules before sending in ads!
