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/

Telling friends about DigameXtra: Please do not hand out the submission email to persons who are not already Digamextra subscribers!!! These new people are sending in ads without having read an issue or the rules page, with many errors, creating a ton of extra work for me answering their incorrect submissions. ONLY GIVE NEW COMERS THE WEBSITE 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!

Any MMA Fans Out There? Or Insomniacs?: I watch UFC, Bellator, Invicta, etc., events live. These usually show very late Friday or Saturday nights, early prelims at 11:00pm or 12am, main event at 2 or 4am, as they’re mostly from America. Events from Europe or Asia start earlier. I can host 1 to 3 MMA fans if you’d like to join me. My studio in Torrox Costa is small but comfortable and has a huge lawn just outside my door. If so inspired I may even put a TV out on the patio/sidewalk. I have a 55″ “real plasma” HD tv on 300Mb fiber/ethernet, a few recliners, a big fan and a fridge. I smoke and drink and have a big dog. If you’re cool with that and would like to join me here are some upcoming events I will be watching. Call me on 675 993 069 to discuss. Naythan/Torrox Costa
