    • More than one collected format of an item

      As of right now you can mark a item as collected with one type of metadata bluray/dvd/digtal ect.
      Myself I have multiple editions of a movie like a bluray and a dvd or bluray and digital copy or all of the above.
      It would be nice to either be able to mark a movie/tv show/episode as collected more than once.
      Like watch history with a view all button and the best quality shown on the main page.
      Or be able to select more than one option under format.
      I personally prefer the former because it represents what is an entirely…

      • Create a folder/list of lists

        I like to keep my series/doramas/animes/variety or reality shows organized by status (currently watching, dropped, priority, freezer etc), but my lists get a bit messy since they're all mixed up.
        If I could create different folders for each, I think it would make things easier.

        And I know it sounds like a feature not many people would use, but it's worth the try.

        Thanks anyway.

        ^^

        • Native Friend discovery

          Rather than making Friend discovery dependent on 3rd-party social platforms, please implement native Friend discovery. One solution would be comparing tastes and ratings and film viewings between users and letting users discover & add each other that way, similar to Last.FM's Neighbors feature

          • Bug: Check-in, then rate will watch the episode twice

            It is a bug, and here are steps to reproduce:
            1. Open an episode link on the website (or movie)
            2. Check-in the episode
            3. Watch it (can be escaped)
            4. Rate the episode
            You will find the watch count is 2, it should be 1.

            What did I do to go around it?
            After I check-in an episode, I manually refresh the webpage, then after I rate the episode.
            So a manual refresh is mandatory after checking-in in order to not duplicate your watching history.

            I guess a possible solution might be a force update to the cache and…

            • Select preferred "Watch Now" services

              Reelgood, Trakt's (primary?) "Watch Now" data partner, could possibly provide this information somehow with an update to the existing two-way sync feature, if implementing Trakt's own UI for it isn't feasible due to available dev time etc.

              The main use cases I see are filtering lists and other views to show only content the user has access to through a service subscription, and prioritizing which two "Watch Now" buttons get the prime slot below the poster image on pages where that applies. (Right now, even shows that are available on e.g. Hulu display Amazon & iTunes purchase options there, forcing…

              • Upcoming Schedule - episode without show name

                Hello,

                Screen: https://imgur.com/niqoODj

                Episode on Wednesday Dec 19 does not specify show name (it's a little confusing).
                It's second episode of The Long Song (the last episode on list from day before).

                I guess it wasn't made that way on purpose (with short format for multiple episodes on the same day), so I'm reporting it.

                • Spoiler switch in the main menu or elsewhere integrated in the UI

                  The same way there's now a fast switch for dark mode in the main menu (Dark Knight Mode), I think it would be interesting the have a quick method to turn spoilers on and off. For example, when browsing lists, specially when there are lots of special episodes, sometimes I need to click on several items to reveal their titles, because "Special 34" doesn't give as much information as "6x03", and it becomes tiresome pretty fast. Going to settings to temporarily turn spoilers off and later turn them on isn't ideal either. I think a switch where a single click…

                  • Filtering lists by Advanced Filters

                    I have Trakt VIP and access to Advanced Filters. I can filter shows via parameters like 'network' or 'watchnow', that are appended to URL.

                    Would be possible to support similar advanced filtering for lists. I tried adding same parameters to URL, but it didn't work.

                    For example I have watchlist consisting ~40 shows. I would like to see shows produced by Netflix. So I'd like to use:

                    https://trakt.tv/users/franiis/lists/watchlist-shows?sort=released,asc&networks=Netflix

                    (some UI could be usable, but support for URL should be easier and faster to add).

                    • Automatically reload page if connection to server is lost.

                      I keep a tab open on Trakt in Firefox for Android at all times and come back to it whenever I need to file something as watched. Because of the caching system in Firefox (possibly just for Android?), sometimes the tab is being loaded from the local cache instead of from the server.

                      When it does this, I'm no longer connected to the server, and trying to mark shows gives me an error saying "You are already signed in." To get the site back into working condition, I need to hit reload in Firefox to force it to establish a…

                        Allow to reorder Watchlist in the personal lists page? It's not that important to be featured at the top.

                        • Add a way to flag duplicates directly from item pages

                          Would it be possible to add some way to flag duplicates directly on the site?

                          For example adding a link "this is/has a duplicate" next to the "refresh data" that open a pop-up where you can enter a link to the duplicate/original of a movie/show, maybe even a comment if details are needed.
                          It would be easier and quicker for user to inform you about them and you could even see the links that are flagged more often and correct them first.

                          It would reduce the number of support messages and make duplicate/error signaling accessible to the less curious of…

                            • Lock lists

                              Allowing lists to be "locked". So a movie can't be added or removed from the film page. It can be annoying when a list is "complete" (ex. a film festival or the Top X from year Y) and by mistake I add a movie who has nothing to do in this list because I clicked the wrong one. It hold no sense to propose me to add the movie to a list when the list is "locked" or "finished"

                                  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.

                                • Add Quotes or notes to the movies or tv shows you've watched

                                  I think that it would be great if you can add quotes of a movie or show you want to remember (something similar seen on seenth.at) or you just simply found something interesting and you want to write it down for yourself (similar to the notes on goodreads)

                                  • 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 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.

                                      • 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

                                        • 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!
