Author: Owen DeLong   
Submitted On: 18 April 2018

Description: When adding number of results per page functionality to ARIN online, please include the ability to set/modify a persistent site-wide user preference for this value. Consider allowing separate preferences for mobile vs. other browsers.

Value to Community: This allows each user to express their preferred default number of results per page vs. having to constantly reset it for every list result at runtime.

Timeframe: Not specified

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2018.9 upon confirmed receipt, requesting ARIN allow user default settings in ARIN Online.

We have reviewed your suggestion and understand it supplements suggestion 2018.8, but that it also stands alone as a separate suggestion to allow user default settings in areas of ARIN Online that today, or in the future, allow for user settings selection. We further note your call for ARIN to consider separate user-defined settings defaults for separate device types (mobile vs. browser). We will investigate approaches to lists for mobile browsing vs. desktop browsing and attempt to implement common best practices and industry standards in user interface design.

Our development schedule for the 2018 year is currently filled by previously-submitted community suggestions and other system improvements. We are currently reviewing our schedule for changes and new additions through a comprehensive ACSP consultation to determine the suggestion subject areas of highest interest to the community. Following that consultation, we will consider if scheduling for this suggestion may be moved up for 2018 or considered for 2019.

Thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. Your suggestion will remain open until implemented.
