The place to ask questions like this is the USER list. 

The thing with checkboxes is that the browsers do not submit them if they are not checked.
If the checkbox input is there, it was checked. If the checkbox is not in the request, then
it is not present. 

Typically people will represent checkboxes with a boolean that defaults to false. So if they
are checked, then they are set to true. 

But do not post any follow questions here. Post to the USER list instead.
