  1. 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…

    • 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…

      • Specials not showing in Up next to watch, even though it's the next aired episode

        I have the Include Specials option in the Watch Progress settings checked ( https://i.imgur.com/bHRIVv3.png ). The show I'm watching ( https://trakt.tv/shows/the-thick-of-it/seasons/all ) has 3 specials between Season 2, which I recently finished watching, and Season 3 ( https://i.imgur.com/MyGsq6a.png ). However, the next episode to watch, in my Progress page ( https://i.imgur.com/c7Am7dm.png ) and the Dashboard ( https://i.imgur.com/56tQvIB.png ), is the Season 3 premiere.

          The checkbox currently only applies to the overall percentage calculation for the show. We’ll need to update how progress calculates for the next episode.

        • Mutually Exclusive Lists

          Allow certain personal lists to be marked as mutually exclusive, meaning that if i add an item to such a list, it should automatically be removed from any other mutually exclusive list.

          • Most Watched boxes customizable

            During my childhood I watched many animes such as Dragon Ball Z.
            If I check-in the seasons the TV Show becomes my most watched TV Show by far.
            Therefore this will never change since it has over 200 episodes and no new TV Shows today will have that much (I think)
            I would like to be able to add this TV Show in my watched list but don't think having it as my most watched TV show is really relevant.
            This applies for movies too.

            Suggestions

            - Allow in settings profile section to choose if Most Watched boxes should refer…

              • private profile public list

                I have a private profile, but would like to make one of my lists public.

                At the moment this doesn't seem to be possible. (Searches for the name of the list, already set to Public, does not return any results. If I go directly to the link of the list when logged out, what shows up is a message that the user is private, and not the public list.)

                • Movie sets/Sequels

                  I would really love that when you're watching some movie's page it would show somewhere that is it a part of some movie set (sequels etc.).

                  • 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"

                    • 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.

                      • 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

                        • 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.

                              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.

                            • Disable rating for movies and episodes that won't be released in a month (or longer)

                              I know you declined this for *all* movies and episodes that haven't been released, because you're not sure if the release date is correct, but could you at least disable it for more distant release dates? (not including episodes with missing dates)
                              If you enable rating about a month before something's released (maybe earlier if that's necessary), you should be able to know if the exact release date is correct, right?

                                Unfortunately this is still very hard to predict with earlier online premieres and different release dates around the world. I’d like to do this as well, so i’ll leave it to continue researching.

                                  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!
