System Update for September 2, 2017

The system was updated on September 2, 2017. The update included the following: The module that checks for similar private messages, comments, and timeline posts has been improved and fully implemented. If you copy and paste the same message or post, you might as well delete your script. The system will halt you after five items with 80% or more similarity. Conversations between the same members should now be grouped together. I don't think this is retroactive so will probably only apply to new…

Missing Private Messages

Note: This issue has been fully resolved as of September 9, 2017... During an update and subsequent system crash on Saturday, September 2, private messages were lost to the system. The messages are all still in the database, but the system is not able to render them at this time. After many hours of work and research, I have found the problem with the messages. I will be slowly restoring your messages over the next few days. Messages that are 'of a certain age' (to be determined) will not be res…

IJN Chat

One member recently contacted me to ask me why the IJN Chat is so slow. We did some extensive testing and we never encountered any latency, lag, or sluggishness in the chat. We did this by having two test accounts in different locations. One account was on a mobile device, the other on a desktop computer in the office. We both had our phones on and were talking while we were also chatting here on the site. In all cases, we could hear the chime of message receive through the phone within a fracti…

"Fake" Profiles

We work very hard on a daily basis to eliminate all known fake profiles. The vast majority of these are removed during the manual review process that takes place before new members are allowed to communicate with other members. Recently, I have received two member reports stating that two other members have committed libel against this website by writing, in private messages, that there are many fake profiles on this website. Not only is that a violation of our Terms of Service, but it is also d…

Personal contact info, hangouts, Yahoo IM, asking for money, etc.

Just to clarify, this site does not prohibit anyone from asking another member for money. No member is forced to send money to any other member so if you do so it is your choice. However, if a member joins the site with the intent to ask for money, it must be stated clearly in the essay portion of the member's profile, the section entitled "In my own words." I would encourage you to get to know the other member very well before you send him or her any money. Scammers will not wait around for tha…

Site Security Update

The website security has been updated so that any data that you send to or receive from the website can not be intercepted by anyone. The connection that is established between the website is accomplished using SSL technology. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. Since this is a free website, the o…

Site Software Update

The site was moved to a new and much improved server on February 28, 2017. The site's core software was updated on March 1, 2017. This update gave us a performance boost and a few new features. Here are some of the new features that you will see: Pictures and videos can be posted directly to the timeline and attached to private messages. Members no longer need to check email twice for lost password. It can be assigned right away. New messages are sent, checked for and displayed instantly with no…

Private Message System

I have had a couple of questions about the messaging system on the site. The system is simple and effective when you understand how it works. I will give here a short tutorial. To read your messages, you click on My Messages in the User Menu on the left sidebar. You will see the User Menu after you log in. It looks like this: After you have clicked My Messages in the User Menu, you will see something similar to this screen: I believe that this is where some get confused. All of the messages in t…

Updated Terms of Service

Please note that I have updated the Terms of Service for ItsJustaNumber.com. The following was added: Your profile must include a picture that shows your face in order to contact other members. If you remove your profile picture or change your profile picture to one that does not show your face, your account may be deleted without notice. Accounts without profile pictures and/or accounts that have profile pictures that do not show the face of the member may be deleted at any time without notice…

New One on One Chat Added

I have added a new one on one chat system to the website. You can see the bar at the bottom of the screen. You must be logged in to chat.Your friends will appear in your chat buddy list if they are online.There is a link to Chat with another member on the other member's profile. It will only appear if the other member is currently online.I will be making some improvements to the chat such as adding more emoticons/emoji, etc.

What Makes Us Different

There are two main things that make ItsJustaNumber different from other "Age Gap" Dating sites. 1. We offer a premium service at no charge. IJN is absolutely 100% FREE.2. We actually look at every profile on registration. When a new user signs up, an administrator looks at the new profile and then approves or declines it. We do this because we only want members who are truly seeking an age gap relationship, and because we filter out the would-be scammers before you ever see them. I can assure yo…

Site Software Update

The site software engine was updated on May 13, 2016. If you signed up on or before that date, you may want to check your profile and update your state and city locations. Those elements would not transfer when the database was migrated to the new system.
