How can we improve Trakt?

  1. Compare your movie collection with another user

    Compare your movie collection with someone else (friend or just another community member). This would show a list of the movies the other person has that you don't.

  2. 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.

  3. Private messaging

    Sometimes I want to exchange ideas with a user and can not. You could also put a message box or a small part "hidden" so that we can communicate. How about?
    So it would be easier to make friends and ask for opinions! :-)

    (Sorry for bad english)

  4. 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).

  5. Recommend a show, episode or movie to a friend

    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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. Family accounts

    I use XBMC, and make use of profiles for; myself, the wife, and the children.

    I would like the ability in trakt to create a family account, so we can all still have separate libraries and use different accounts to scrobble. However via the family account they are linked, so there is an overview of what we have all watched etc recently.

    Also, possibly the ability when viewing a family members activity to say "I watched this with them too" and have it show up in your feed as well. Or a popup in XBMC much like the rating dialog,…

  9. Please add "watch now" filter by services in personal lists.

    For example:
    I have Netflix subscription but I don't have HBO. I want to know in my watchlist what I can stream now using Netflix.

  10. Add started/unstarted filter and percent completed sorting option to lists.

    The lists are great, and especially the native watchlist...

    But it'd be great if I could filter out the ones that I've started or have not started. Furthermore, the ability to sort by the watch completion percentage would be great!

  12. metadata bulk changes

    I hope I am not just missing such a thing .... but I was looking at the options of adding metadata to entities. I have a large collection, and going in to each one of them individually is just not something I would take the time to do. Are there options to select multiple entities and do a bulk apply of a set of metadata? I do see the ability to change each individual entity

  13. TMDB Episode groups

    TMDB went ahead and made episodes groups available in the API. TVDB failed kinda hard with their V2 and has this feature nowhere with an ETA. Would it make sense to implement them anyways based on the corresponding TMDB#? The major issues will most likely be things containing specials but the same already holds true with today's mappings.

  14. Horizontal cast list is unwieldy

    The horizonal cast list has some issues worth mentioning:

    1. Captions are very small and often abbreviated, requiring mouseover;
    2. Emphasis on pictures makes it look nice, but trying to find someone by name or character name can take more time than necessary if the cast is extensive;
    3. Horizontal scrolling on mobile can be problematic (more often than not the touch sensor registers the slight vertical move of a finger and starts vertical scroll instead of horizontal), and even on desktop clicking and dragging the scrollbar is clunky compared to using the scroll wheel.

    I'd much prefer it to…

  15. Only collected shows in progress page

    I think it would be great if there was an additional filter for collected/uncollected shows in progress (watched) page. For example some show has 5 seasons but in my country I only have 3 - if i could mark "show only collected" then after watching these 3 seasons that show would disappear from my progress - until i'll collect more seasons...

  16. Alert me to special local screenings of movies on my Watchlist (besides new releases)

    It'd be great to be notified on the Dashboard when there's a special showing happening near me of movies that aren't new releases. There are lots of small, independent theaters that do special screenings, re-releases, or film festivals, or whatever.

    For example, I had Vertigo on my Watchlist, and there was a showing at my local theater, and it would've been great if that appeared on my Dashboard.

    I know getting to that data is difficult, and a lot of it is probably impossible to get in a usable, automatable format, but there are a lot of showtime sites that…

  17. Progress Filters

    In Progress view, there are options to filter by Completed and Ended. However this filters as Completed OR Ended. I'd like for an option to filter as Completed AND Ended, so any that I have seen all episodes but is an ongoing series is still visible. And any that have ended but I haven't finished watching are visible.

    Thanks

  19. Easier add to list functionality

    The list section is great, but lacking a quicker way to add films. An option in the UI at the top of the screen allowing checkboxes to add in bulk to a list would be very beneficial in building quick lists.

    I am currently trying to find a quicker way of reviewing my films I have seen and building lists for friends as must-watch films, but to add 300 or so movies is very laborious.

  20. Add tmdb movie collections

    When you lookup a title like
    When visiting tmdb and looking at a title for instance "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" it is shown it's part of the Star Wars collection.
    Also when visiting https://www.themoviedb.org/collection/10-star-wars-collection you can easily see which titles are part of this collection. I was thinking it might be handy that we could just click through to a collection and see which titles are part of this collection.
