  1. Search Prediction for the search box

    well. im talking about search prediction like google has, when u type something and automatically the site suggest the rest of the search and the list is presented under the search box, its really missing, pretty easy to add (:
    example :

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. Trakt podcasts/radio shows

    The ability to trakt podcasts or radio shows would be fabulous.

  5. 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)

  6. Choose favorite TV show and movie

    In profile we have "Favorite movies" and "Favorite TV shows" that show things according to the option, for example I use "Random rated 10" and shows all movies that I rated 10. Would be nice if I could choose my real favorite movie and tv show independent of my ratings.

    ps: I'm the worst explaining things and sorry about my english I'm brazilian.

  7. 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.

  8. More options for sorting movies/shows

    It would be great if more options for sorting could be added (by director, genres....) to watchlist, library, ratings and all other places where you can sort movies and shows. I use my watchlist do decide which movie/show to watch next and library/history to go through movies/shows that I have seen when I want to recommend some of those to friends or family, so those options would make it much easier. Thanks.

  9. 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.

  10. Add a "watched up to this" button

    Add Seen up to this episode/season button, please, it is a core feature IMHO.

  11. 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

  12. 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!

  13. 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

  14. Import checked list from icheckmovies

    As a new user who has found in love with this website (you guys rock!) one thing I would love to do would be to merge my checked movies into trakt.

    I cant possibly force myself to go after over 1500 movies, so an import option would be ginormous good news for a user like me. Icheckmovies and maybe other sites provide export lists, so in theory it isnt to tricky.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
