I'd like an ability to block specific members from trees. E.g. if they have a private tree connected to their DNA and ignore messages, etc.

Its a "community" thing Dave....I doubt that they would ever go for that.....plus they want you to spread out across the globe and pay the upgraded subscriptions :thumb:

I know that it's a 'community' but you should be able to block specific members from looking at your tree (e.g. if you can't see theirs), with a choice of predefined or custom messages for whatever you want them to know in terms of why they are blocked. Like on Facebook where you can block people from seeing your stuff (and that's a 'community').

As far as I can see there are only three basic tree settings, Public, Private and Unindexed...... on Ancestry.

I am not aware of any further "modifications" that you can make within these classifications.

If would be interesting to learn if you can do this from the subscribers of other sites on here?.

No, there aren't any (on Ancestry), but you can block people from its messenger, or you can 'hide' DNA results. It'd just need something similar adding for trees. Like you say though, they won't want to do it, but it's something fairly high up in my wish-list.
