Can I request to have my tree changed to the french 3.0 volunteer tree?

Hello since there is no way to contact the staff of Duolingo directly I am going to pose my question here and hope someone in the forums will know.

I want to know if it is possible to request that my french account be swapped to the volunteer french tree 3.0. I didn't get the tree when it was being tested and while I understand and fully appreciate the reasons why a full roll out was halted (as I understand it, it was wiping some people's skill levels) I am more than willing to deal with that in exchange for the tree with 90 or so skills vs the 76ish skills that my tree currently has.

I am aware of and have tried the new staff tree (the one with 156 skills) which I believe is called tree 12. I like tree 12, but I am concerned by reports I have read about there being a lot of mistakes in the tree which makes me nervous as I am no expert in french and I will be paranoid about every sentence that I will miss a mistake and just learn and memorize the errors. Even more upsetting for me however is the amount of grammar lessons that seem to be gone including several of the compound past and imperfect past lessons as well as others. Those sections in my current tree are what made me feel I was really learning French and would be able to form sentences because I understood the syntax of the language. Which brings me full circle to tree 3.0 which seems to simple expand the tree I am currently on and which I would truly like to try.

Thank you in advance to everyone. Cheers, Biblio
EDIT: When I logged into Duo on Google chrome the grammar sections I mentioned above were missing from tree 12... I have since logged on from Firefox and they were there. I wanted to correct that as I don't want to sell this wonderful service short.

The situation with all these trees is quite confusing.

I would also love to have my French tree (now fully golded and abandoned) switched to volunteer version 3, even if just as an intermediary phase until other developments are released for all users.

I don't mind losing the gold color at all.

Thanks!

From what I understand, they are not putting anyone into the volunteer French tree 3.0 any more. Sorry.

Be really nice if we could choose when to have our trees converted or elect not to have them converted at all...
