  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…

      • sync/history not working

        It appears sync/history has stopped working. Im using MediaPortal with app(user/pass) authentication. I believe someone that was using similar auth in TraktRater experienced the same problem, switching to oAuth fixed it.

        Can you please look into this, here is an example:

          • I'd like to be able to ignore users

            There are certain individuals writing WOTs for the lamest of episodes imaginable without saying much on a regular basis, or people deliberately spamming the comment section with multiple (different) >1k character comments (but 0-1min timestamp differences).

            I'd like to set a user to be ignored to not see his/her reviews and shouts (or replies). It's greatly annoying to see that a recent episode has like 6-9 comments in total whereas 4-6 are from the same person upon expanding the comment section.
            Or see yet another review talking hot air about redundant, petty things for thousands of characters, pretty much without…

              • Make a review section separated from the comment section

                I'm writing this idea down because I'm one of those people who enjoy writing reviews.

                I noticed that when the comment is X long the site changes from comment to review, but still, comments and reviews end up in the same space and sometimes it is hard to get a review to be seen unless someone looks for it because mostly it's people complaining about people voting movies or shows that aren't out yet and those get top comment so it's kind of disarming when your review is bashed down from those comments.

                So a comment section separated from a…

                • 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…

                  • 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.

                      • "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.

                        • 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…

                              • Multiple shows correct on TVDB and TMDB but incorrect on Trakt

                                A series of unfortunate events, dance moms, agent carter are all shows that are currently showing wrong information and have been correct on the other sites for days.

                                • 8 out of 10 cats does countdown episodes numbered wrong

                                  So the episode that just appeared in my calender as being first broadcast tuesday was labelled "13x08 Sean Lock, Katherine Ryan, Jon Richardson,David Mitchell & Nick Helm"
                                  that episode is infact Season 9 Episode 5 as according to the channel 4 official website. Dont know what that means for the other episode numbers thanks

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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.

                                      • Up Next To Watch: use a list as a queue

                                        Hi

                                        I have a suggestion for the dashboard, a new section or an option to choose between my watching progress or a custom ranked list that would function as a queue of sorts.

                                        Obviously this is going to be a little tricky to implement because of the different types of items (movies, shows, seasons, episodes) but it would be very helpful not just as a queue but also as a tool to track the watching order of some shows. For example, I could close the X-Files Essential Episodes and have the first 6 items of that list show up in…
