Notifications are coming!
We’ve just released the beginnings of the GeyserTimes notification system! You will now receive an email about all matters to do with flagging entries. So make sure you have a valid email set for your account!
We are also working on adding notifications to the web, Android, and iOS platforms. This will hopefully be done and released by mid summer!
Released an update today that fixes a crash with resuming the app after a long time and changed sorting for the geyser selection field to “starts with” instead of “contains” to match previous versions of the app.
We have now started a Telegram channel!
On this channel we plan on releasing notices about updates and status updates as well.

The 2016 Summer season has now come to a close in Yellowstone. We would like to thank everyone for using GeyserTimes. It is because of the people that enter data that makes this project as valuable as it is to the entire community.
Attached is a summary of the data that the community collected during this last summer.
2016 Summer GT Stats
Thanks for making GT what it is today!
We just put some new features on the site tonight!
- Initial to initial stats
- Search bar behavior fix
- Fixed a timezone issue on the data logger charts
- Fixed some problems with long usernames and their behavior in the header bar
- Interval display – If two consecutive eruptions are entered in to the second resolution the interval will display seconds
- Some fixes and additions to the data logger management system
- Cleaned up some old files
- Removed v3 of the API. Please use v4.
FYI to anybody using our API. We will be turning off v3 very soon. Please make sure your scripts are using v4 of the API. This winter we will be working on a v5 of the API that will include more functions.
Information on how to use our API is listed at http://geysertimes.org/api/v4/docs/index.php
Released an update to the app that only changes some back end code to help reduce stress on the server.
Just a heads up. The main prediction server (geysers.net) for GeyserTimes is currently down. The server crashed and Alan has to rebuild the server that provided the predictions. In the meantime we have been working on a new prediction engine that will be hosted on our own server to eventually replace the current server. The new system is not fully ready yet but we have released part of it so we will at least have predictions for Old Faithful. We hope to get the geysers.net prediction server and/ or the GeyserTimes prediction engine fully operational in the near future.
Released an update to the Android app that allows for a simple filter to hide all features that are not in Yellowstone from the summary screens. This setting is turned off by default so you will need to manually turn it on if you only want to see features in Yellowstone.
Published an update today that fixes a bug that was causing a false error message when entering Grand Geyser eruptions.
