      Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.

      This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.

    • Translate website, movies, and shows to other languages

      It would be really nice, if you let people translate the website but that's not so important for me...
      but i found that the movie titles are only the english ones, for example the movie "the inbetweeners" is in german "sex on the beach" and so i couldn't find it first because i didn't know that!

      • Track other forms of media

        I'd love to see some other media forms (manga, books, video games, etc.) on the site so I can track everything in one spot.

        • Add more achievements and badges

          I think there should badges for such things as watching a series premier on day one, 10,000 episode watch, watching complete series, guilty pleasures, etc.

          Way to get users better tracking their watch counts

          • Import from IMDb

            It would be nice if there would be a function to import my imdb watchlist into trakt, so I don't have to do all movies manually

            • Compare your movie collection with another user

              Compare your movie collection with someone else (friend or just another community member). This would show a list of the movies the other person has that you don't.

              • Find users with similar tastes and a high compatibility rating

                kind of like the "neighbours" feature on last.fm, you get suggestions on who to add as a friend (people with similar tv show/movie taste to you) based on the tv shows, episodes and movies you marked as seen.

                • Mark multiple episodes watched/collected

                  I would like to be able to see a list of episodes with checkboxes next to each so that I could quickly mark what I have seen or collected. For example, I might have seen a full season except one special episode and it takes too many steps to mark this.

                  • Viewer's Milestones

                    Hello
                    I have small idea - special page in profile, where user can observe they milestones for using trakt.tv.
                    Milestones would be like:
                    - watched 100 episodes,
                    - watched 1000 episodes,
                    - watched 150 movies,
                    - watched 30 comedies,
                    - watched whole [eg. Marvel Cinematic Universe] list,
                    - spend 100 hours watching shows,
                    - spend one month watching tv shows,
                    - started watching [eg. The Big Bang Theory]
                    - finished series: [eg. Strike Back]
                    - created first list,
                    - added 100 items to Watchlist,
                    - friended 10 users,
                    - had VIP account for 6 months.

                    It could be also place…

                    • Differentiate a first-time watch from a rewatch on the Recently Watched sections of user profiles.

                      When taking a glance at the recently watched sections of a user's profile page, it's easy to assume that the user has just watched the movie/show for the first time, even if that user originally watched said movie/show a long time ago. I think that it's very important to distinguish the difference between a first-time watch and a rewatch as they are very different experiences for the user, and that maybe adding a rewatch label/icon or giving the option to hide rewatches from the recently watched sections would be a good idea.

                      • Refresh on dashboard and progress pages.

                        It would be cool if you didn't have to refresh the page after ticking off a episode on the 'on deck to watch' widget and progress page, instead making the episode box refresh. This allows the whole process of checking off shows the be seamless.

                        Cheers!

                          • Add "where" and "with" fields

                            It would be nice to be able to indicate where and with who has been seen a particular movie/episode. In particular:

                            [1] Every "watch date" should have its "where" and "with".
                            [2] In the "where" field I can write what I want.
                            [3] In the "with" field I can write what I want or add a trakt user.
                            [4] If in the "where" field I enter "Sunshine Cinema", this place is automatically saved in a specific "Places" page, in which I can add/delete/edit all the places.
                            [5] The places in the "Places" page are automatically suggested when I set the…

                            • More specific privacy controls for sections

                              Another one to get more open profiles: Let users choose what information they are showing. There have been instances where previously open lists suddenly got private etc. This would still allow users who are not too eager to show things like their collection or maybe watchlist to others to at least have something public (ex. lists).

                              • Restart TV Show Progress While Keeping Episode Watch Count

                                This problem mainly arose with the most recent 2.0 update to the trakt addon in XBMC, I love the two way syncing system however, when I want to rewatch a tv series I can't make use of the XBMC "watched" feature which is a pain. This happens because if I mark the tv series as unwatched (to start tracking my XBMC progress again) it will automatically mark it as seen upon next load.

                                I often watch videos on different systems so the two way syncing is like an angel from heaven, however I think that some sort of system on…

                                • Group episodes of a show that are marked as watched simultaneously on the history page

                                  Marking a season of a show, or the whole show itself, as watched will display each of the show's episode on the history page. Imagine that on a show with 200 episode that you had watched previously, for example. You mark this show as watched and then you check your history. You'll have to navigate through a lot of pages that display the show's episodes and it's kind of an unpleasant experience, especially when you want to review your watched history.

                                  • A options that you could subscribe or un subscribe from a show

                                    For example: if i watch one or two episodes it doesn't necessarily mean i want to continue to watch the show. therefore if you want, you can subscribe to it or dont, so it would show in my progress page and in my calendar

                                    • Add the option to skip episodes in your progress tracking

                                      It would be useful to have the possibility to skip a single episode or season. For example, it is useful to make some special episodes you will never watch disappear from the progress view.

                                      This is different than dropping a show because you may want to skip one episode but be sure of being notified of the next one.

                                      • Recommend a show, episode or movie to a friend

                                        It would be great if i could recommend a given show, episode or movie to another trakt user.

                                        In order to avoid spam i suggest that you can only send a recommendation to a user that follows you.

                                        • How many movies have you seen from a specific person?

                                          I added this idea on vip forum, but might as well post here to for the general pop to see :)

                                          Its fun to know :
