The call for discussion on consult at arin.net is extended to Noon
ET, Monday, 26 March.

ARIN is soliciting input from the community on a request to remove the 
ARIN WHOIS query limit of 256 results. Rather than raise the limit to an 
arbitrary number, ARIN requests that you provide your specific feedback 
as to what the query results limit should be. ARIN asks for feedback 
based on your experiences with using ARIN's WHOIS directory service. It 
would be of particular interest to ARIN to receive input from larger 
organizations with many registered resources or sub-delegations 
regarding an appropriate result limit.

The call for consultation and discussion to date is archived at:
