I have an unmaintained person object in the RIPE Database. Can I create a mntner object to protect it?

Yes, it is possible to add a maintainer to an unreferenced person object through webupdates or by e-mail.

Unreferenced person objects will be deleted from the RIPE Database periodically. See also: Clean-up of unreferenced person objects.
