Limit on the Wikitree Ahnentafel function?

When I try to use the Ahnentafel option, I get a maximum of 7 generations (127 persons). However, I have a family tree in which some of the lines (that I've imput to Wikitree) run back 16 generations.  I realize that the number of persons in a tree doubles with each additional generation, & that 16 generations represents a massive file.  My question is whether 7 generations really is the cap, or am I overlooking something?

It is the cap :( You can click on each of those people on gen 7 and see their 7 gen list.. but not much fun.

Lindsay is correct.

Our excuse: Like John says, the number of ancestors doubles with each generation. That means the processing required to generate the report doubles with each generation. It's not like generating a report from local family tree software with data on your hard drive. Here you're sharing a server with tens of thousands of other people. You might not mind waiting for a report to generate, but we don't want to make everyone wait while your report generates.
