As no one has been using the Activity Feed, Id rather have the About Section as Default.
I could turn off the Feed, but I would like to give members the oportunity to use it.

I don't understand what you are asking / saying. The About page is the landing page. It contains the Background, News, Goals, results and project statistics pages.

On the right-hand side of your GAP page there should be a blue(?) button Convert to myGroups now (or a similar wording). Below the button there would be text All groups will automatically be converted on 04/16/2015 (which is not true anymore).

You can phone FTDNA Support, select group admin option and ask them that they move you.

If you are a co-admin of the project instead of the admin you will not see anything about converting to myGroups. At least that is my experience. The one project that I a co-admin to, there is nothing on my GAP page about myGroups. The project that I am the administrator to I have the information on about converting to myGroups.

Thank you!

I have asked my co-admin for a screenshot, and all the myGroups information present on my screen above Project Administrator News and Release Notes sections was missing from his screen...

Unless FTDNA has suspended converting to myGroups while they are making changes/updates before making the mandatory change over, I don't know. They made mention of delaying the mandatory change over in the last GAP newsletter.
