I've seen something similar to this in 6.0.x so this may be specification, but I think it should be corrected.

I'm currently using 6.1 nightly build.

1. Goto Control Panel
2. Create a site
3. Go to Site Membership
If there are more several pages in a list of users/organizations/user groups,
If I check on an item and go to the next page, the selected item is unchecked when I return or if I "Update Associations" after moving to the next page.

If would be better to save the status of the selection or at least give a warning that the selection will be lost unless "Update Associations" is selected
before moving to the next page in the list.

Hi Hitoshi,

I've heard this suggestion before and I agree. This behavior is exactly like it is designed, but it might be confusing for some users.

IMO the solution would be to change the pagination to use AJAX and additionally add a text right above the buttons which says for example "10 users selected" so that it is clear that the operation will apply to all those users (or organizations, user groups, ...).

The specification is confusing because it's different from all the other sites.
It, also, upset users because all the selection they've done becomes unselected without any warning when they turn the page.
