Wait a second, maybe I'm misunderstanding this, but I certainly oppose any change that would make an unchecked checkbox an error during form validation. A required Bool field can have two values: True or False. One is represented by a checked checkbox, the other by an unchecked checkbox. An unchecked checkbox is not missing input and should not trigger "required missing" errors. Marius Gedminas -- As easy as 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716
