Happy New Year! I hope your first month in 2019 has been beautiful, full of new year’s resolutions you stuck to, and perhaps even a few pieces of chocolate cake snuck in as well 😁At Crossdresser Heaven we’ve also got some wonderful things planned for 2019!
Your illustrious Managing Editor and Director of Content Development, Cap, suggested that it may be appropriate for me to share something every month or two with y’all about what’s going on behind the scenes. First, to let everyone know that I do exist 😊, and along with our team of Ambassadors we’re working hard to ensure Crossdresser Heaven is a safe, welcoming, and supportive place for everyone in the transgender community.
Our community is growing and vibrant. Every day I hear from many guests and members who have found Crossdresser Heaven to be an oasis in the desert, and every note warms my heart – thank you! It is also amazing to see how each one of you are supporting others, laughing together, offering a shoulder to cry on. This truly is the best of what we can do together as a community, and I thank you for sharing your love and care with others too!
While this is an update on new features of the website, our community is so much more than this. It is for each of you that myself and the Ambassadors give of our hearts and our talents.
With little delay and much excitement, here are the changes we’ve made to the site in January 2019!
You can also share your ideas and vote on ideas for what you’d like to see on Crossdresser Heaven.
Updated Article and Photo Commenting
We’ve made it easier than ever to carry on a discussion about an article or photo.
- Discussion comments are now threaded, so if you reply to a comment you’ll see which comment you’re replying to
- You can subscribe to receive an email when someone responds to your comment – just click subscribe and press the selection arrow to be notified.
- You can flag inappropriate comments by clicking the flag in the corner; those comments can be removed if we deem them inappropriate
- You can tag someone in your comment to notify them either using @username or pressing the little person with a + sign on them and searching for them.
- You can use emoji by clicking the smiley face in the corner.
- Vote for the comments you love (or hate) using the thumbs up and thumbs down indicator.
- Follow your favorite member by clicking the icon next to their name in the comment.
- Learn more about other members – click their name to see how many comments and likes they’ve received. And while it’s not a competition 😉, I do wonder how many of you ladies can out-comment the original Cyn?
- A new sidebar that shows the most commented posts in the last month, top comments by members as well as the top commenters in the last month
New Article and Photo Commenting Experience
We’ve also taken out the brand new nail polish and applied it to the forums experience!
- The Forums Overview page has been redone to look cleaner and load faster.
- We’ve added an easy way to find the most popular topics and new topics from last week
- We’ve refreshed the presentation of forums on the Home page to make it easier to see new forum topics at a glance.

Share Your Opinion
We didn’t share a site update for last month, but in December we launched a new feature on Crossdresser Heaven where a new poll will be posted every few days (thanks to our newest Ambassador Fiona!). You click to access the polls from the Home Page, or see the last three polls on the right sidebar when viewing any article. Head on over and vote! We’d love to know what you think.
Lots of Performance Improvements
We did many optimizations to make the site load faster for everyone, visitor or guest.
Every day we’ll have a new series of photos featured on the front page. Check back often to see who is featured – perhaps it’s your photo!
We’ve got some exciting improvements planned for February. You’ll want to stay tuned for these!
We’d also love to hear your opinion on what you’d like to see updated, improved or added to Crossdresser Heaven. It can be a new technical feature, a new program or policy, or anything that would make your experience on Crosssdresser Heaven even more wonderful!

Until next month,
