  1. Watch a TV Show or Movie with a friend

    Often times, I don't watch movies or TV shows alone, but with friends. It would be nice, if only one person would check into a movie/show and mark the others. That way you could not only track which shows/movies you have watched, but also with whom.

    If you would like to make things more complex, you could link a foursquare profile to your trakt account and check in (movies/shows) those friends who are checked into the same venue as you are. But that's maybe over the top ;)

    • [idea] "My Top 10" default user list

      What do you say about a list called "My Top 10" that every user has by default.
      The max count of items on that list is 10, no more.

      Use case could be a page like http://trakt.tv/movies/popular where the most favored items of all trakt members are displayed.

      This way we could narrow the many thousend of popular items to a top 100.

      • Privacy: hide watch times

        I've had several friends complain about Trakt that altough they like being able to see what TV Shows and Movies other friends have watched, they don't like the 'time' being displayed.

        They have no problem inthe information showing they watched XXX on Tuesday, but they have a problem when it also says they watched at 11AM.

        Probably because of privacy issues. Maybe then don't want friends knowing they're at home watching TV instead of working, or at 3AM watching TV.

        I believe there are lots of strong and compelling reasons to make Times an toggle, and user can decide to…

          Interesting idea. We’ll look into this, the main challenge is not only hiding from the website, bu also the API. The activity API specifically is largely based around timestamps of all the various actions.

        • 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

          • [idea] check items on friends lists

            Lets say I am on a movie page, and I click on "lists" I'll get for example here: http://trakt.tv/movie/thor-the-dark-world-2013/lists
            The given navigation elements are: "Personal" "Official" "Watchlists" "All" - of all members of trakt.
            On those pages it would be fantastic to filter JUST the list of friends (or people I follow) - so I could see if he/she already has it on his/her watchlist or any personal list.

            That way I don't have to recommend it anymore, when he/she knows it already.

            Thank you!

            • Links to previous and following movies in a movie franchise/series.

              Links to previous and following movies in a movie franchise/series. E.g. on the movie page for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" link to "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1". Personally I would put the links in the box containing runtime and other meta information.

              Concerning the source for this data I can tell you that The Movie DB have "collections" which seen to contain movie series and franchises. This data is accessible through their API similar to their movie data.

              When you get the movie data there is…

              • Notifications for changes in lists

                It would be great if we could have notifications when a change is made to "liked" list.
                Therefore if i follow/like someone elses list and he makes a change or addition i would be notified, can see the change and for example want to watch as well.

                  Good timing as we are beta testing new notification features right now.

                  The trickest part for this request is including the changed items. For example, say I add 10 movies over a 5 minute period. Getting 10 notifications is overkill. So, we might have to simply notify you the list changed and then you can view it yourself.

                • Progress for movies

                  it collects box sets, e.g. all star trek, ice age, carry on, american pie, die hard movies

                  and it should include not only official box sets

                  • 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!

                    • 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

                      • Check in from progress and other pages

                        I think it would be great to be able to check in or mark as watched from the progress page. Maybe icons under the Next episode name.

                        I find myself spending a lot of time on the progress page to find the next episode to watch, and it would save a lot of time if I didn't have to go to the episode page to check in.

                        • News and articles about shows, movies, etc

                          I wonder if would be good a main page with news related to series or movies, news in general so we can use trakt for something more than just selecting what we see.. to use it like a real and trustworthy entertainment website.

                          Perhaps with a section dedicated to detect series that you've seen or are in your watchlist, so that you go there knowing that you'll read something of your interest.

                          • Embedded Preview Trailers For Movies and TV Shows

                            When browsing the dashboard or home page on trakt, I occasionally find some interesting movies or TV shows that I would like to preview.

                            I thought it would be neat and convenient if a user can hover over a poster of a movie or TV show, and be able to view a trailer straight from trakt without having to search for it on youtube or through some other media source. Bascially if a user, hovers over the poster and clicks play, a pop out embedded video of the trailer would start playing.

                                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.

                                • Show more shout/review statistics about the different Trakt users on the shout/review page

                                  Maybe its an idea to show more statistics on shouts and reviews of Trakt users.

                                  For example the total amount of shouts can be shown a Trakt user has made and the total amount of likes for all the shouts someone has received besides the likes on the currently displayed shout or review.

                                    Give us the ability to tag movies, series and episodes in our collection, using tags.

                                    Tags can be marked as private, seen by friends or been public, like it's happening with lists.

                                    Tags can also have their own unique custom color and can be manipulated through Trakt's API.

                                    An example would be to tag some movies for their location in user's library, i.e. in HDD #3 or in BluRay #41. If someone want to do the above example now, using lists, s/he would end up having an enormous number of lists.

                                    Another example would be to indicate the format (i.e.…

                                    • 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).

                                      • Community lists (or moderated lists)

                                        Allow for lists to be moderated or have an option for a community list.

                                        Moderated list: Allow an author of a list to add moderators. That would allow for the others to make changes to it. And as a further feature allow someone who isn't a moderator to submit an entry for the list. Examples of this could be a list for season previews, festival entries or genre lists.

                                        Community list: This could be a list where everyone is allowed to submit one recommendation as for something like "community recommendations" or voting on lists; "trakt's favorite movie of 2012" etc.

                                        • 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.
