Project Administrators and Assistants are not FTDNA employees, they are genetic genealogy hobbyist volunteers.
They do not receive any form of financial payment or any other incentive or reimbursement for their work.  Project administrators are responsible for the content on the project websites.  

Organization of DNA kits into subgroups and naming of those groups is done by project administrators after analyzing the comparative results.  Placement of DNA kits within the subgroups is dictated by FTDNA programing and cannot be altered by project administrators.

Many of the testees in this project have ordered testing on advanced markers ( STRs ) or individual STRs in the 38 - 67 marker panel.
FTDNA programing at this time does not allow for the display of those individual markers.  

Many testees have also ordered the Deep Clade Haplogroup SNP test and advanced SNP testing.  Project administrators have indicated the primary haplogroup branch SNP in the name of the subgroups where applicable and have activated the SNP RESULTS display page.
The link above will take you to a discussion group for the Gillespie DNA Project. Use this forum to discuss your DNA matches, ask questions or to recruit participants to DNA test for your Gillespie line. Genealogy information that was formerly posted on the RESULTS PAGE for this project is now posted in the FILES section at our Yahoo Gillespie DNA Project Discussion Group.
This link will take you to the Family Tree DNA "FAQ" page.          
This link will take you to the International Society of Genetic Genealogy.  Please visit often and take advantage of their many DNA for genealogy educational resources.  Everyone can become a member of ISOGG.
This link will take you to the Family Tree DNA Facebook page. 
A Family Tree DNA staff member is online to answer very basis questions about the various DNA tests.
