Consultation Polling Underway

Posted: Tue, 27 Mar 2007

The suggestion to remove the 256 WHOIS query results limit was referred to the consultation process in order to determine if the current limit presents a problem for many in the community.

After a two week discussion period on the topic, the Consultation Mailing List will close with this message. Each email address currently subscribed to will be emailed individually with instructions to participate in the poll.

This poll will expire at noon ET on Monday, 2 April 2007.

This is a simple polling question to gauge where the community stands. The discussion on this topic is archived and available at:

Issue: Given the modest amount of community interest expressed, ARIN will make no changes to the existing 256 WHOIS query results limit at this time.

Poll results will be publicly available and will be used by the ARIN President to help determine what course of action, if any, ARIN should take regarding the suggestion.
