Chat Support: Friends only?

Attention members: Your chat widget can create a conversation with any member, not just friends. However, the friends tab will still display your friends only. To start a conversation with someone who is not your friend, simply use the chat composition icon as seen below, and you can also search all site members to select the recipient.

There is also a setting on mobile you may be interested in whereby you can control who can message you for a chat. (see below):

Hope this helps!


Tutorial: How to check who is in Chat

Some members have been a bit confused as to how to check to see who, if anyone is online when they are.
There are 2 main ways currently, to see who is available for you to chat with.

I. Public Chatroom: At the very top of the Public Chatroom, simply click the participant icon as seen here:

This will reveal the following list, and as you can see, the very top names have a small green dot, which signifies they are online and active. You can also see the number of members online. In this case there is seven.

II. Chat Widget: The chat widget is your handy list which has 3 tabs: Messages, Friends, and Groups. Please click the friends tab, and you will notice the top friends in your list are actually those who are currently online and active. For now, yes you must add a friend first to be able to chat.

I hope this clears things up. If you still have questions, just ask one of our chat moderators and they will help you, thanks and enjoy!

Site Mail and Chat icons fixed

Just wanted to mention that the confusing issue with the two envelope icons has been fixed now. So, from now on, remember, you can check and use site mail messaging system by using the mail or envelope icon on your profile toolbar (left side on desktop), and you can view and use your chat messages by utilizing the chat bubble icon. Any other issues or suggestions just let me know! Enjoy and tell everyone you know about PGW 2.0!

New Improvements: Discord Chat Access

We now have a widget in the right side bar where you can see who all is on our Discord Server at any given time, as well as a link to join us. Additionally, I created a new site page so that you can seamlessly enter our Public Chatroom on discord as well. All you have to do is look at our site menu, under chat rooms, and click on Public Chatroom (Discord) and it will present you will a full page (as long as you have installed the discord app for desktop course). In case you have trouble, the direct link is here.
MANY more improvements are on the way, so buckle in!

PGW News: Chat improvements are on the way!

Dear members:

There is great news from our Chat developers. As we all know, the mobile chat has had vast improvements since our beginning, but clicking “back” to see if you have new messages does tend to be a pain, so I wrote to our devs at iflychat, and they had some awesome news for me!

They are actually on the verge of releasing a completely new iFlyChat both for desktop and mobile, and the app will be much more optimized for mobile. The rollout will be in phases, first they will release the basic app complete with all the old functionalities with a better user experience/interface.

Immediately after that they will be release newer features. These will include a better workflow to keep track of new messages and recent conversations in mobile and desktop versions.

Stay tuned and spread the word to other members!

PGW News: Mobile Chat App is coming!

We have some great news that I know I have been dying to announce and the time is finally here. PGW will finally implement vast improvements over our current mobile chat system with a mobile app for smartphones and mobile devices. The release should be around a week from now, at earliest by this coming Friday, if everything works according to plan. Improvements will keep being added as we go, up till about Mid-May. So get ready, mobile members, you will finally be more on par with web members.


*UPDATE: The Mobile Chat App should launch as early as Tuesday. The guys who designed our chat are fully aware of the bugs happening with the current mobile chat, so they are working hard to get this done!
