  1. Adjust "up next" episodes to be selected as earliest unwatched episode for people skipping around a series.

    TL;DR: If I've viewed some episodes from season 1 and some from season 7, let me choose my "next episode" to default to the earliest unwatched episode (season 1) rather than the current default of the latest (season 7).

    Shows without a plot (i.e. documentaries, sketch shows, etc.) are quite often watched out of order. For example, here's my viewing of ESPN's 30 for 30 series.

    As you can see episode 3x03 is "up next" but I still have quite a few episodes before it in season 1 and 2 to watch. The true "next" episode for me to…

    • Make 'Data refresh' available for everyone (improves it for everyone ;)

      Hi,

      so I changed some shows in TMDB. I guess I could now manually refresh it in trakt. Wouldn't it make sense to allow this for everyone? Currently, I would have to inform you (or support) and they do it manually... if you could just tell all wrong show info complainers to go to TMDB, fix it and they just hit refresh when done, you will never have to fix something manually ;)

      thanks,
      chris

      • Filter based on "Watch now" services that I subscribe to

        It would be great to extend the "Watch now" feature such that I can tell Trakt which services I subscribe to, e.g. Netflix and HBO Go, and have it apply a filter to only show items that are available from those services when viewing a list.

        Example, I favorited a IMDB Top 250 list and it would be nice to see what's currently available to watch so that I can start working through it.

        • Show what shows/movies you both watched when browsing someones profile

          Like on the Website MyAnimeList. When visting the history page of someone elses profile it would be cool to see a little statistics on top which shows how many shows/movies you both watched or rated the same.

          • Ability to apply a dark theme across the entire website?

            It would be really amazing if you could make a dark version of the website. I suffer from Horton's (also known as cluster headache) and while I love the site and use it practically every day, it can sometimes be pretty painful, because of its brightness.

            But even people without any similar conditions could benefit from it, seeing as a high-contrast, dark theme would reduce eye strain.

            I wouldn't mind if you made various other themes, offered up 1 for free, so regular users could see what it does, and then make the rest a VIP feature. Or do what…

            • better search/filter

              it would be nice if the search/filter function was more sophisticated
              1) regarding availability it would be nice if there was a generic flag "online" that filters all movies that are available on dvd or online anywhere, without needing to add hundreds of providers. this is nice if looking for a good movie with the only criteria that one can find it online (as opposed to available only in cinemas)
              2) filter to exclude movies i have already watched (why suggest it again?)
              3) possibility to exclude certain critera and include others in the same category. for example include "comedy"…

              • Add % of episodes watched in comments

                I find very annoying to look for reviews of a show only to see people have given it a 1/10 after watching just the pilot. So I think it would be nice to display, next to the comments, the % of the series seen (just like, for instance, MyAnimeList does: see https://myanimelist.net/anime/9253/Steins_Gate/reviews for example). That way we can see that someone who has seen the full series may have a stronger opinion to give.

                • Slack / Discord / IRC

                  I'd like to have some sort of live chat to interact with staff and other users of the community, especially for when big television premieres are happening. Slack would be preferred, but I wouldn't mind a Discord or IRC channel either. Perhaps make this a VIP perk.

                  • RE: Option to hide adult movies from search and site overall

                    I've already opened a ticket about this (closed now) but if we're gonna just do it manually then it's going to be quite the long list. So here's what I'm suggesting...

                    Since the issue here is TMDb's definiton of what constitutes an 'adult movie' (most of Tinto Brass' filmography is not marked as such, while most people would describe his movies as "porn but, like... with dialogue") a middle ground can be found in the tags of these movies (which makes them appear in the recommendation sections and search). So while, say, Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens is not…

                    • Plans for anime 2017

                      I noticed that you've added a genre switch when the keyword "anime" has been set on TMDB. Figured I'd ask if that is the current extent of specific anime support or if there is more planned? (This could also be made a lot easier with just taking the production country + animation genre :))

                      Things that could be done after the "anime" match:
                      - Listing season names from TMDB (since all seasons get their own titles)
                      - Absolute numbering for certain titles
                      - IDs to other databases (like Simpsons has specific wiki links).

                      • Search in "Tvdb" "tmdb" direct link ?

                        Hi

                        When a tvshow or movie is not found on trakt, could you add a direct link for searching on other sites databases. As the title is already entered ?
                        Thanks

                          • Fit More Items Horizontally on Mobile Site

                            When you are using Trakt on mobile you have items 2 each row in lists, search and actor pages.
                            While this looks and works great when you are vertical, horizontally each item has trouble fitting the screen.

                            Vertical
                            https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B9oF0PQyfXGBa3I1aEg0ZmpLaklxM2dtTU9zY1E1TE5BVXU4

                            Horizontal
                            https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B9oF0PQyfXGBZVBaU212b05VSnppYjJJOEhoSmoxNjhwNzdv

                            So if you had the amount of items per row increase when you are horizontal to about 4 the interface would seem less cramped.

                            Thanks

                              • Rotten Tomatoes score

                                I know this has been suggested (and declined) before, but adding Rotten Tomatoes rating would be great.

                                I know Trakt already has user ratings (I've been rating my watched titles myself) but it would still be nice to compare the community ratings with the critic's from Rotten Tomatoes.

                                It has an API - as opposed to IMDb, for instance - so it might be possible.

                                • Progress: inconsisent time

                                  Hi,

                                  I want to report two minor bugs connected to time on progress page on my profile:

                                  1. http://imgur.com/a/7xfsb

                                  As you can see on screenshot time from last watched episode is wrong (to be accurate was wrong for both series).
                                  I spotted this today first time (and I can't reproduce it so far)

                                  After some time it's look like this: http://imgur.com/a/TMRP2

                                  Refreshing page doesn't fix it, but after some tries it can show proper values (and after next refresh it go back to wrong value)

                                  2. Sometimes "Time left to watch" is ridiculous high - instead 2 days 20h it's…

                                  • Add "My Rating" as Sort Option in Lists

                                    Hi,

                                    Is there a way to sort by my own rating within a list? I know we can sort by percentage, but I believe that sorts by the overall rating of the show, whereas, I just want to see them based on my own personal rating, i.e. I'll see my higher rated stuff at the top.

                                    I know I can do this within the actual rating page, but then that includes everything that I've ever rated and is a lot of stuff to go through. I just thought it would be helpful if there was a way to add that…

                                    • Allow easy rewatch from overview pages

                                      Currently, I can only mark episodes as watched for a second time, if I am on the page for this episode. It would be cool if I could use a long click (like when marking it for the first time) to bring up a menu to add a new play.

                                      • Can't change timezones

                                        I'm trying to change from CET to NZDT, but the change isn't being applied. Whenever I change the timezone in settings, click "Save settings", leave settings and then go back to them, the changes are reverted. The changes also have no effect on the rest of the website.

                                        • Season Finale Alert (IT IS POSSIBLE)

                                          I believe there is some data available that could be used to detect at least a "Possible Season Finale" and send that notification out to users that want this feature. You could label it a BETA FEATURE and you could even crowdsource it (have users confirm it is a season finale). Even if you send the notification out, two weeks after the season finale happened, it is still useful information to me and to many other users that like binge-watching seasons. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
