ACSP Suggestion 2015.7: Increase Visibility of Whois Inaccuracy Reporting Form
Submitted On: 14 May 2015
Description: I had hard time locating the WHOIS Inaccuracy page on the ARIN page: https://www.arin.net/public/whoisinaccuracy/index.xhtml. Is there a way you can place it on the ARIN main page where it will be very visible and easy to access?
Value to Community: The benefit is to ensure the WHOIS is accurate for operational security, abuse correction and administrative clarity. As the WHOIS database is one of the main functions of ARIN, it is important to have easy and clear reporting mechanisms.
