The hierarchical community detection is able to demonstrate the intrinsic structure of the network, but a deficiency is that the final structure is invariable. In this study, a flexible extension of the hierarchical approach is proposed. The modularity increasement is substituted by a ratio that should be larger than a threshold. We are able to adjust the hierarchical structure by modifying the threshold. The experiments display that such a variation of hierarchical structure is sensible if the modularity metric Q does not change too much.
