  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.

      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…

      • 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"…

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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…

              • 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

                • 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).

                    • 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.

                      • "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.

                        • 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…

                          • See aggregated friends ratings / activities / collections

                            It would be great if /network section would not (only) be a list of people in your network, but an aggregation of activities of everyone in your network.
                            To be able to see what my friends have been up to, find what they have rated highly (find recommendations). Going to each friends /history/ page is not nearly as fun for that ;)

                            Alternatively perhaps in search filter in addition to "RATED" filter there can be "FRIENDS RATED" filter to achieve a similar result.

                              • 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…

                                • Customizable notifications (per episode via Pushbullet)

                                  Send notifications about new episodes to Pushbullet.

                                  Now we only have email notifications -witch are great- but it would be nice to be able to receive a Pushbullet notification, a few houres before the season premiere.

                                  And I would like to be able to totally customise it, like for example selecting a list, and then saying that I want to receive a message for every episode on that list that is airing, and then selecting that I receive an notification on the air date, 4 houres in advance (so I don't forget to watch it that night).

                                  If it is…

                                  • memory issue

                                    Recently, I've witnessed huge memory consumption from trakt. I often have 2 or 3 trakt tabs opened at the same time but I don't think that's the problem.
                                    I have a low connection speed so I suspect some packages get lost and just stack up and up. (Right now for example, one tab is taking 2.7 GB! And it's still getting more and more)

                                    Any ideas?

                                      • Trakt not marking as watched

                                        Trakt suddenly stopped automatically marking my movies and shows as watched on Exodus. Also the auto rating pop up is no longer showing up. I upgraded to Kodi 17 which allowed me to be updated to Trakt 3.10. All settings are correct in exodus and trakt. Please help.

                                        • 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.
