  1. 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.

    • [BUG] Images sometimes fail to load

      Basically sometimes episode images fail to show. They get shown if you scroll around the page.

      It's not time dependant. I.e. images will not show if you wait.

      This happens a lot on "All -> New Shows" page.

      This fail to load image can happen across multiple episodes and tv series on a specific week page.

      Tested with Firefox and Chrome, same result.

      I'm using poster image type.

      • Long press not working

        The long press function (i.e. for specific watch dates) is not working for me any more for quite some time in Firefox (Chromium and Edge works fine though). I cannot remember the specific point at which I broke but I am on the latest release (FF 53).

        Didn't find any bug report yet, I hope this is nothing specific for me...
        Anyway, no showstopper, and I just want to say thanks for the cool site, keep up the nice work!

        • 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.

          http://i.imgur.com/6N8GzKW.png

          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…

          • 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.

            • Sensitive touch screen

              When using a touch screen, the trakt website in general is too sensitive for scrolling/ navigating. We have to pay close attention to where we put our fingers and how to scroll.

              Example: When swiping my finger up to scroll down, suddenly trakt is loading the page for the movie I saw yesterday. Or when I scroll through the movie section, suddenly I've added a random movie to my watchlist; sometimes I don't even notice until afterwards.

              Thought at first this was a performance issue, and it very well might be, but this is seen on iPad, iPhone, android phone…

              • 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.

                  • Bug with the fade option

                    Hi,

                    Since a couple of weeks I have a weird bug with the fade options, it doesn't load all images properly. (I don't have this problem when nothing is "faded")
                    Here's a couple of screenshots so you can see what the problem is :
                    https://snag.gy/MFTc2R.jpg
                    https://snag.gy/c47QPA.jpg

                    I also have a display problem when I put my cursor on the stats in the dashboard :
                    https://snag.gy/1uUMNT.jpg

                    I'm on google chrome on a Win 8.1 computer. (With Mozilla it's working as it should)

                    If you need more details I'd be happy to provide it.

                    Thanks

                    • 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

                      • Split time watched across days

                        Over the last few months, I noticed that I've become really obsessed with finishing watching things before midnight local time to avoid messing up my dashboard graph with stats that appear on the "wrong day".

                        It occurred to me tonight, after yet another movie finished just after midnight, that actually, software can solve this problem.

                        I propose that Trakt take the timestamp and duration of each item played into account when generating graphs, such that if (as happened tonight) I finish a 126-minute movie at 0:03, 123 of those minutes still appear in the graph for the previous day, and…

                          • Season Posters

                            I think there should be system so we can upload and vote for seasons posters or movie posters, for "perfect" customization. Maybe a vote system once a week for VIPs or all users? Mainly i have 3 matching posters for 3 seasons for Fargo. A harmony in all banners and posters would be "great!" interface for Trakt.tv!

                              • hide show for a period of time

                                I would like to be able to hide a show for a certain period of time in the up next to watch section.
                                For example, I watch Doctor Who and Game of Thrones with my sister who I only see once a month. So having the option to hide it for a month or until a certain date (maybe using the same code from the 'add to history - watched on a certian date' would be nice.

                                • 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:

                                    I found a number of BBC docs that have stale images. I spot checked a number of these and they have images on TMDB.

                                      • Hide "completed and ended" shows

                                        I know there are various ways to hide shows on the progress page. But if I use"hide ended shows", it hides the ones that are ended but I haven't completed yet so I can't keep tracking on them. If I use "hide completed", I can't see when the new episode will be of them. So it would be great if you could create a button which hides shows that are both ended AND completed at the same time. This way I could see everything I am interested in right now on my progress page.

                                        • scrolling bug

                                          on any part of the site it is not possible to scroll the left frame/navigation panel.
                                          examples: i have many saved filters, to be able to select the last one i need to scroll the movies all the way to the end until also the left side scrolls.
                                          or
                                          when on any movie detail site you have to scroll movie description and comments all the way to the end befor you can see the info in the left frame of the site.

                                            Yeah, this is how the sidenav locking plugin we have currently works. It also depends on your vertical resolution. One idea I have is making the individual sidenav sections collapsable to help reduce the height.
