Please make the limit higher than 5000

Please take the limit higher than 5000 before relatives / Ancestors not shows with text what they are to you.   When you click them. You do not really want to find more than 5000 then really and see no point in having a digital tree.   I have gone back 5 generation only and its already 5000, please make it 10000 at least.

Hope this will be fixed to higher numbers once in the future.

I also agree... Very annoying limitation for a service that is expensive.

Does myheritage even listen to its paying customers?

Well I hope you will take it higher. Is there any reason that it is 5000? I think it's more important than much of the other new stuff =)

I completely agree. In the past, I've tried to enlist friends & family to subscribe with MH but the failure to adequately identify distant relationships is a turnoff. Too bad.

Yes, from there page it says:

* For trees with less than or equal to 5000 people, you can see all relationships. For trees with over 5000 people and less than 17,000 individuals it is limited:

So, over 17000 its back? I don`t understand why its like that. It make no sense having a limit at 5000. Its so random number.  And like you say, when you try to get people too use Myheritage. They don`t see or understand the relation, I/we do. But we have many 100 hours inside, soo we know our tree well. Its a great site, but this limit on only 5000 is no good. Prioritize this please and get it higher. This is a common complaint in different forums in different countries. As it is now, there will be many duplicated trees. (7 same trees I have seen, its a mess with smart matches) Because people start new ones, one to go past 5000 and one under 5000 etc. It's not ideal,  because some trees will be outdated when times go.

I totally agree.  I have complained about this several times as well with no result or any good reason why 5000 or any other number is a magic number that is a threshold that cannot be crossed.
