hi! yeah, i've got a curiosity streak about a mile wide :)

when i click on the box-o-books tab and it says 'new boxers', i was assuming they would be people who, like me, just signed up for the box-o-books thing... so, how is it possible that, of the names shown, 1 has a boxer rating of 0 (kindof what i expected), 1 has an account hold, and 5 have ratings of between 36 and 267...?

I've often wondered that too!

I think you are a new boxer, even if you renew your boxer status when you pay your yearly $8.00-at least that is what happened when I renewed.

I think Sue is right.  Those are the renewals.  It would be nice if they would indicate which are newbies versus renewals.  I check on there every week or so and try to look at all the new boxers' shelves.

You also show as a 'new boxer' when you take your shelf off hold.

I don't know about the "off hold" names being on there, never put mine on hold (not saying it isn't so, just saying I have no idea), but I definitely know that when my sub was renewed my name was put there, and I had over 150 trades at that point ;)
