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!! ONLY GIVE NEW READERS THE WEBSITE ADDRESS www.digameXtra.com!! Be sure to tell them they must subscribe and read the Submissions Rules before sending in submissions!

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. With all the new Followers joining DigameXtra (5 on Halloween alone, Welcome!), I am far too busy helping them get started to keep track of partial submissions and patch them together. Prompt personal assistance from a real human is one of the prime features that sets DigameXtra apart from Farcebook. -Editor
