- URL Sharing
As stated in IDWS Forum Rules dan Details, every content that is shared must be links of Indowebster. Non-Indowebster links are allowed to be shared before the Indowebster links availability with a 10-day limitation which means non-Indowebster links will be removed if after ten days, there are no Indowebster links for contents you're sharing. Time limitation will be omitted and the non-Indowebster links you have posted before will be restored if a user posts an Indowebster link(s).
Explanation regarding non-Indowebster links and different contents (album version, bitrate, format, single / multiple links, resolution) is as follows :
- For local links (IIX) aside from Indowebster & Mediafire, this rule applies generally.
For example, a user has posted an Indowebster link for an album with description "standard edition - 320kbps". Time limitation is not used for varying contents which originate from other IIX links or Mediafire that you have given or going to give for the same album.
- For international links (IX), this rule applies specifically.
For example, a user has posted an Indowebster link for an album with description "standard edition - 320kbps". Time limitation is still used for varying contents which originate from other IX links that you have given or going to give for the same album.
- Instrumental Version & Remix Version is not categorized as varying content but considered as different content.
