  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.

    • 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…

      • Auto Add Episodes

        Currently I'm using SeriesGuide app and I have the following problem (but this problem comes with every app linked with Trakt): if I want to set as viewed an episode that is not already on Trakt (but it is present on TheTVDB) I can't. This is very annoying. To avoid this problem I suggest to automatically add an episode if Trakt receive a request to set it as viewed.

        • Regular Show episode lengths are screwy

          Scattered through Regular Show, there are some episodes that Trakt thinks are 22 minutes long instead of 11. I can only assume that it's because an external source is incorrect, but it can really skew my watched stats for days when I watch several episodes of the show.

          I've initiated yet another data refresh for the series, but I doubt it will change anything. Doing the same a couple times before hasn't gotten rid of the erroneous times.

          • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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).

                    • 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"…

                      • 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…

                        • "Favorite Genres" Pie Chart on Profile Page

                          Can the color scheme of the "Favorite Genres" Pie Chart on the Profile Page be different colors instead of "50 Shades of Red" ;] Or possibly in the settings the user can decide which colors they want their genres to represent for the profile page pie chart.

                          • Better search

                            In my opinion, the sorting of the search results is wrong. First should be shown the movies/shows with exact (or almost exact) title match to the search term. Then the actors names, etc. And probably last the movies/shows that match the description.

                            The display of the results should always include the text (in a fixed position relative to the poster) with the title and year of production. Now you show this only if the poster is missing. This makes it very hard to quickly scan for the title you are looking.

                            And last, when you click on the search bar,…

                              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…

                                  • Duplicate episodes

                                    Silversun (https://trakt.tv/shows/silversun) has some duplicate entries. It seems as though some (eg. TVDB) think it consists of 1 Season with 40 Episodes, and others (eg. IMDB) think it's 2 Seasons with 20 Episodes each.

                                    On Trakt, Season 1 Episodes 21-40 are the same as Season 2 Episodes 1-20.

                                    Eg.
                                    https://trakt.tv/shows/silversun/seasons/1/episodes/21 is the same as https://trakt.tv/shows/silversun/seasons/2/episodes/1

                                    • 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

                                      • Sort all episodes by release date

                                        I would like it if all TV Shows in a list could be combined to where all of the episodes of all the shows were in one list and I could sort by release date.

                                        • Writers and producers for movies

                                          It would be nice if the writers and producers were displayed in addition to the director and actors on movie pages.
