Welcome to DigameXtra !
Rules & Info
By making a submission you are indicating you have read and agree to follow the rules.
How to Subscribe
Visit the website, https://digamextra.com/ Scroll down page until the black FOLLOW button appears in right side column, enter your email address, click the black FOLLOW button. Don’t click the smaller blue FOLLOW button, unless you are a WordPress member.
You must be a subscriber/follower to make a submission. Submissions must show the reply contact as the sender’s email address. The address for your submissions is firstname.lastname@example.org The Deadline is 4pm. Following on Facebook alone does not give you submission privileges, for that you must follow this blog by email.
*If you want to assist another to make submissions, send it from that person’s subscribed email, not your own. You may not make posts for another person. Doing so is enabling them to post anonymously, which I cannot allow.
*Write your submissions in your email. Do not use any fancy formatting, .gifs or emojis as they must be stripped out before entering a new issue in the WordPress editor due to format conflicts. For the best results do not copy and paste anything from social media. Emojis and .gifs are actually weblinks to the image you see it as. These are often hosted on insecure Chinese servers so I don’t allow them. Look at your submissions before sending them to avoid a returned for correction notice.
*Capital Letters– Don’t write anything in ALL CAPITALS!
* For Sale/Rent Rules: Three For Sale items per day max. Include all sale items/pics for that day in single email. Include all sales info details in your email to accompany your pics, I do not publish pics without this even if the info is on the pic! Many readers cannot enlarge pics to read the details. For Sale/Rental items must include a price. Minimum price is €5 per item. Free for Sale/Rent posts are for private parties only. Businesses must be DigameXtra Sponsors to submit For Sale/Rent posts. No holiday rental posts permitted, long term rentals, 3 months minimum are ok. If you include a poster, include all item details in your email to accompany posters, I do not publish any posters without this even if the info is on the poster!
*Buyers Info: I strongly suggest you do not purchase anything from a party that will not provide you their phone number. I suggest asking them to ring your phone while you are meeting, then you have the number and know the number is correct. Meeting a person to make a deal in a neutral location may seem reasonable, but if you don’t know where they live, and you don’t have their phone, you may have no recourse if the item proves defective. LET THE BUYER BEWARE!
*To submit a “For Sale/Rent” post where the price of an item exceeds €4,000.00, or the monthly rent of a property exceeds €800.00 per month, you must be a DigameXtra sponsor. Big ticket sales sponsorships to post with prices above these limits begin at €50 for 3 months. No holiday rental posts accepted. Big Ticket Sales Items with a price over €10,000 have a Sponsor’s fee of 1/2 of 1% of the asking price. This will allow you to post the item once a week for 3 months with 2 photos. This exempts you from the requirement to lower the price when resubmitting. There is no implied guarantee the item will sell. No refunds, not charity deductible.
*Submissions must show the reply contact as the sender’s email address. No other email addresses may be included.
*Photos & Documents- .jpeg, .jpg or .png formats only. Pics printed as received, be sure it is right side up! Keep pic size to 4Mb max and name them properly. No PDFs or Word documents. One pic per item or event, readers can email you for more. To shrink pics visit this website. Note: you are shrinking the file size, not the physical dimensions. Pic Shrink tool at https://imageresize.org/ Enter new target file size for your images as 4000Kb or 4Mb. Try it, it’s easy! Please send in ONLY ONE pic per item: readers can email you for more. If you send in extra pics, I will choose the pic to post. Job lot sales may post up to 3 pics. In any case, “For Sale” posts may have no more than 3 pics total.
*Re-Submissions- What’s On events may post once a week, Services Offered once a month. Sale/Rental items previously posted must wait 1 month before re-submitting, and the price must have been lowered by at least 20%.
*Bars, Bands, Businesses, Restaurants Clubs & Charities – You may make weekly submissions if you have new events or special limited time offers. Otherwise you may only submit once a month. Include event details in your email to accompany event posters, I do not publish any posters without this even if the info is on the poster! Many readers cannot enlarge pics to read the details. Do not submit events more than 8 weeks in advance. You may make a poster with events more than 8 weeks away and include that poster in your submission, just leave out the info about items more than 8 weeks off from your post text.
*DigameXtra is located in Andalucia, the second poorest region of Spain. As such DigameXtra supports local charities only, not charities that collect funds desperately needed here for use outside Andalucia. The only exception is Armed Services support charities, as we all benefit from these either directly or indirectly.
*DigameXtra has a policy of not providing free posts to large businesses/corporations, they need to become Sponsors to submit posts.
*Everyone must include their first name and location (nearest town). If you don’t want your email published, provide a phone number and make a note in the submission to leave out the email.
*NO POSTING OF OBSOLETE ELECTRONICS! Several readers have been attempting to sell obsolete phones/tablets/computers. Several unhappy buyers who felt they had been deceived into buying an “as new” item that in fact was obsolete have lodged complaints to me regarding these sales. Less tech savvy readers, who are the majority here, expect fully operational devices. I will NOT post obsolete items, that are no longer supported for updates, or cannot run current versions of apps, even if labelled as obsolete or with limited functions,
*Health Professionals- Your submissions must include a Spanish licence Number and name the issuing authority. Only health professionals may offer “healing” or “therapy” in posts.
*No more than 40 lines of text per submission as viewed on a laptop screen set to 100% zoom.
