Email and private messaging are wonderful ways to communicate, but in the instant world we live in today it can seem as painfully slow as waiting for the mailman to deliver a letter. We’re delighted to unveil realtime chat – the newest feature of Crossdresser Heaven. You’ll be able to chat in real time with other members, and with groups. Members who have the Duchess and Princess plans will get access to chat. If you’d like access please Sign up for a 30 day free trial.
Chat conversations allow for instant text chat with your friends.
If you have chat enabled you will see a tab on the right of your screen titled Community Chat. This is where you can access all the chat features of Crossdresser Heaven. To get started, click the chat tab to open up a list of available friends and members to chat with. You can click the tab again at any time to close your friends list.
You will then see a list of friends. When you hover over a friend you will see a few icons. Click the chat icon to start chatting with them. Clicking the star icon will add them to your chat friends list (be sure to add them as a friend in the community too!). The last icon will ignore any chats from this particular user.
Your list of friends shows friends who are currently online or recently active. The Recent heading will show you a list of all chats you’ve recently had.
If you’d rather participate in a group chat or chat with someone not on your friends list, click Chats and you will see a list of all available group chats, as well as all members who are currently active on the website. There is currently one chatroom available for the entire Crossdresser Heaven community – we will expand the available chat rooms over time to help you find your own online group.
As a Duchess or Princess member you will have the ability to initiate a chat with any member, regardless of which plan you’re on. While you are chatting they will be able to respond, but later they will not be able to start a chat with you. Encourage them to sign up for a free trial of the Duchess or Princess plan to keep the friendship going!
By clicking on the three bars in the top right of the chat tab you can customize your chat experience.
You can set your status as ‘Away’, ‘Invisible’ or ‘Busy’. If you log out you will also be logged out of Crossdresser Heaven, so use Log Out with caution.
By default you will hear a notification sound whenever you receive a chat, but you can change this to only chime when the chat is minimized, or not at all.
Group chats allow you to chat with many ladies at once. On the left you will see a list of all members currently in the chatroom. On the right you will see a history of the conversation in the chatroom. You can get some more space by clicking the three dots in the center pane to make the list of users in the chatroom smaller. By clicking on the arrow outside of the box you’re able to pop-out the chat into a new window, so you can chat and browse the forums at the same time.
Controlling the Chat Windows
If you’d like to focus on something else for a while you can click the down arrow to minimize the chat window. This works for both group chats as well individual chats. Your chat window will be minimized to the bottom left of the screen.
By clicking on the three lines in the chat window you can ignore chats from a member, or clear your chat history.
Crossdresser Heaven is a safe, welcoming and supportive environment for everyone in the transgender community. Please keep your chats classy and treat others with respect.
