Hi Kenny

Would it be possible to create two types of comments.

One generally the way things are now with the improvements that others have suggested.

The other a big flashing red warning that there is a huge error in the tree to which the comment is attached.

Example:

This is my entry for my great aunt Eva's husband William Henry Carpenter.

http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/132995/person/-2121363356?pg=...

None of the personal information existed in any tree on Ancestry until I put it up there back in 2006. It's dead on accurate, I have obituaries for Henry, Eva and their parents. I've been to their grave, met and interviewed many of their grandchildren etc.

Here is the page of someone who copied my info on William Henry Carpenter and his ancestors and attached a different spouse and children.

http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/6854579/person/-1188577008?ss...

One of my 2nd cousins saw this and is upset because it makes her great grandfather look like a bigamist.

I've tried contacting the trees owner numerous times but she's never replied.

I have put comments on all of the individual pages where she's in error, but unless someone is specifically looking for a comment they'll never see it.

We should have a way to flag erroneous pages which comes up in searches and hints to alert people that there is a potential problem with the info.
