  1. Getting TMDBid syncs should request them from TMDB

    I've added plenty of movies to TMDB over the years but always having to pull them onto trakt once first before they can be synced is not a great mechanic. I always end up having to sniff the missing ones out in the kodi debugg log... It would be great if the actual TMDBid's which are provided would at least get added to a queue of things to pull once.

      • Dashboard & Friends activity

        One area where trakt currently is severely lacking is keeping up with your "network"/"friends". The number of people you can follow before the dashboard looses it's usefulness is probably a mere 3 users. Capping out at 12 recent items is quite harsh. A single casual user these days can probably nuke that feed in an evening alone (watching, collecting, commenting, lists, etc.). Going above that you can pretty much scratch that area of trakt. If you want to find out what certain people are enjoying you are forced to click on their profile AND "study"
        their history (at least for…

          • Flag inaccurate or non-existent content for removal/correction

            There have been numerous movies I've found that may be in the process of being made, but somehow they get a bad release date, and then they show up in my feed.

            For example, "I, Robot 2" is listed as coming out on June 15, but obviously it's not. https://trakt.tv/movies/i-robot-2

            It'd be nice if there was a "report inaccurate information" link. I've already tried the "Refresh Data" link a week or two ago, and nothing happened.

            • Estimated Date/Time When I Will Catch Up/Complete This Show At The Rate I Am Watching Episodes

              I have this as VIP since this is a little more complex but it would work fine non-VIP as well.

              What I was thinking was that when you pull up a show's main page, it will show an estimate of when you will ether catch up or finish watching the show.

              Here is an example of the math for it to work.... at least I think it works. But it should give you a general idea of how it may function.

              Key:
              b = Average time between episode plays for that show.
              x = Time since last played episode for…

              • "Most watched TV show" should be about total time

                If I watch 10 5-minute-episodes, this doesn't really mean that the show should be prominently featured on my profile over a show with 8 episodes that are 1 hour each. How much someone likes a show is best shown by how much time they spend watching it; episode counts are arbitrary and favor sitcoms over real shows.

                • TV shows on multiple TV networks

                  When a show is aired on multiple TV network, show each airing date on Upcoming schedule in the Dashboard.

                  I know the data is from thetvdb and their decision is to keep only the first TV network to air the first episode.

                  But it's currently a problem with the show "Top of the lake", (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_of_the_Lake ). Sundance was the first to air the first season and is considered as primary TV network, but for the second season, BBC as already aired the 6 episodes, and trakt shows the episodes as not aired and season premiere for September 11.

                  I'm…

                  • 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.

                    • «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!

                        • 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.

                              • New Show in Calendar before premiere

                                Some shows that haven't premier yet already are on trakt.tv with the release date of the 1x01 episode.

                                It would be great to flag that show somehow and the 1x01 date would appear in the "Upcoming schedule". And also when released, the first episode would appear in the "Up next to watch" !

                                Thanks!

                                • 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…

                                  • 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…

                                      • 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.
