We have a lot of support tickets and are working to update the site and issues as fast as we can. If you don’t get a reply right away, it’s not because we’re ignoring you, but because we are working on updates. Thanks.

How can we improve Trakt.tv?

  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…

    • cast per season

      I've read this many times on the VIP forum but couldn't find any tickets here.

      I think we should really set cast members per season or at least the main characters.

      Many times I look for an actor and I can't see in his actor grid the TV Shows he played because the character no longer plays in that TV Show.

      So in fact the grid only shows movies and tv shows where the character is still in play (or if he only plays in the last season it's ok)
      Which I sadly find not relevant enough.

      • Change ratings text

        The text associated with 1-10 star ratings currently isn't very helpful.
        For example, I feel like Star Wars: The Force Awakens is described best of the options with "weak sauce", but I don't think it was as bad as a 1.
        It's the same with the other end: I could describe Scott Pilgrim as "totally ninja", but don't feel like it was a 10/10 masterpiece film.

        I'm coming from MyAnimeList, where the 10 points each have a non-subjective position on the scale which I use to help me decide on an appropriate rating for the series/film. It helps stop me…

          • search engine fault-tolerance

            If I may, I'd like to ask for a slightly more 'forgiving' search engine which gives us humans the opportunity to do what we do best - make mistakes or at least be allowed not to be 100% precise all the time about our input, for instance searches including release years "Life (2015)", forgotten dots instead of space characters "Life.in.Pieces" and even more obvious spelling mistakes, which trakt at this point really does not approve of (= no results).

            In my experience the IMDB engine does quite a good job in terms of 'fuzzy string searching' and I would love…

            • «On This Day»-tab

              I love Trakt and would sign up for a VIP membership within seconds if an «On This Day»-tab was added.

              In «On This Day» you could 1) see what you watched on this day the previous years and 2) show which movies premiered and episodes broadcasted on this day (not ALL movies and episodes, but the ones that is in your collection or viewing history).

              I hope I explained this well enough to understand. Keep up the great work!

              • Hoopla as a watch now source

                There is a library based streaming site that if your local public library supports it you sign in with your library card and are able to check out a few movies or tv shows a month. I believe that this may be a good watch now source because it is free and is supported by public libraries.

                  vrv.co is a new site by CrunchyRoll to watch anime, but it also pulls in Shudder, Funimation Online, and other content sites.

                    • Provide a Simplified Tracking Option

                      There should be an option in the settings menu that allows users to choose the tracking level they desire (for example, a dropdown list called "Tracking Level" with the options "basic", "standard" and "data nerd").

                      When a user sets their level to basic, they will not be required to record watch dates and can view their lists without any indication of the watch date. This will essentially simplify tracking to a watchlist, watched history, collected and rated. The only date visible could be a "date added" which simply indicates when you added it to a list in Trakt.

                      Reason for…

                      • 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.

                        • Reformat Mobile Pages

                          Hello Trakt.tv team,

                          I have had my Trakt.tv Progress page bookmarked to my home screen on my Android phone for well over a year now. It's so functional that I see no reason for an app, and I thank you sincerely for that. However there is one small but very relevant detail that I personally feel would make your mobile site much more comprehensible; that is having the show info displayed under the episode's visual aid/screenshot, as opposed to the info displaying above as it presently does.

                          Here you can see that on the mobile site the episode info is…

                            • Ability to "lock" seasons

                              It would be good if seasons can be "locked" per-say but only after a set amount of time has passed when an episode has not been added.

                              This stops people from adding Specials or OVA's to the main season and messing up multiple trackers out there like Sonarr.

                              • Divide the watchlist in pages

                                The watchlist is just one page and with around 800 films let's say I could watch all those films before the page loads.

                                Why can't the watchlist have pages? Like 100 items in the 1st page, 100 on the 2nd and so on.

                                I had to create custom lists to serve as "new" watchlist because the watchlist is unusable. Yes I can hide tv shows or movies but the page is so heavy that my browser often crashes before it loads. And with around 800 films just hiding the tv show doesn't make the page lighter.

                                • Hide collected shows from the calendar page

                                  So my Plex library syncs to Trakt, so I have a pretty big collection of shows that I'm watching and a good amount of shows that I'm not watching. After initializing this sync I realized that my calendar page now includes collected shows that I have on my server (like Powerpuff Girls) but do not watch. If I "hide" collections then it will hide the shows that I do watch as well.

                                  I'd like a way to disable collections from interfering with the calendar page as a whole so that it still behaves like it did before (a show appears…

                                  • Suggestion: More data on ratings

                                    I was reading this article, trying to get a handle on whether as a web app dev, pandas might be useful to me.
                                    I saw the example of ratings by age and thought of you, food for thought?

                                    • Paginate the lists

                                      Some heavy lists (1000+) are sometimes a bit too much for the browser and could be more usable if paginated

                                      • Movie Location & Friends

                                        I've been trying to clean up some movie tickets and I wanted to add the theater names, location, and possible who I was with.

                                        • Non-blurred Titles right after Login

                                          I enabled the "blur titles" feature for shows and have been using it for a while. When I relogged in to my account after a cache cleaning, titles were not blurred on my dashboard. Refreshing the page solved the issue but just wanted to mention it.
