ing all your previously flushed work units.The "retire-to" feature can be i=
nvoked from your old email's participant configuration page (you will need =
the password associated with that old email address). On that page you must=
 click on the retire link and follow further instructions.Prior to that=2C =
you will need to:configure your clients to use your new email addresswait f=

Subject: [RC5] Stats page bug?

the ranks 13=2C871 places even though the amount of blocks they completed r=
eally only moved them up one spot.

Copy/paste from the stats page:
