General

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?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Removing early rating (ie rating of unreleased episode) or banning early rater?

    Hi TrackTV team,

    I know I'm onto a topic that have been discussed already, and I'm trying the shed a new light here, my apologies if this has been already discussed also.

    I'm seeing more and more rating on episode that have not been released yet, which is annoying (because it is not very smart) but mostly it is biaising the overall rate of a tv show (unless it gets loads of votes), hence degrading the trust a user can have of TrackTV ratings.

    I have seen several other requests that have been denied but none pointing out the negative…

    • Create a Watching Challenge similar to Goodread's Reading Challenge

      I could explain this idea, but I think the Goodread's blog post ( https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/1130-read-more-this-year-with-the-2018-reading-challenge ) does it better than I could. Obviously this is a low priority suggestion and more for fun, but it does have an element of that newfangled gamification thing that was all the hype.

            • Turn "Up next to watch" on the Dashboard into a sideways scroll

              Instead of having to click "SEE MORE", we could just press a left or right arrow that would show everything we have on "Up next to watch".

              • Tweak privacy choices, do NOT save them in a cookie

                Due to the EU GDPR you recently introduced the "privacy" choices when you log in.

                Considering data minimization is a key point in it, the default preselected options must be the ones that keep the data at a minimum. So, perhaps change the defaults to off, instead of on.
                But many websites don't care about this point.

                Secondly, for god's sake, do NOT save those settings - that you only see when you login - in a cookie alone. That information is vital in a sense for the website to work correctly, so saving it on the account is justified.

                  • Add notifications for “friends starts watching” event

                    Add Desktop/Pushover notifications on friends activity.

                    For instance, when I am following someone I like to keep track of what they are watching to see if there's something interesting for me.

                    Instead of only exploring my friends' activity on my dashboard I would like to receive real-time notifications when they start watching a movie or episode.

                    • Bug: Archer Season 3 doesn't show the full 13 episodes

                      According to DVD/Netflix/Hulu/iTunes/Amazon Video/Google Play/Microsoft Store/IMDB/archer.wikia/Wikipedia, Archer Season 3 has 13 episodes, starting with 'Heart of Archness: Part I' and ending with 'Space Race: Part II'.

                      Trakt.tv is showing it as having 10 episodes, with 'Heart of Archness: Part I/II/III' being episodes orphaned to 'Specials', which breaks watching/scrobbling/etc. for a bunch of experiences.

                      This is because TheTVDB is providing this for their 'Aired Order' data (and are committed to not changing that, because they believe this to be the way the season aired. it's debatable).

                      Apparently their 'DVD Order' data has the metadata/ordering used by streaming/downloadable sources. So I guess…

                        • Gossip Girl Missing Poster and Backdrop

                          I'm not sure why but Gossip Girl is missing its main poster and backdrop, despite the images being on tvdb and its other associated sites.

                                • Numerous duplicates of show

                                  Rather than listing each, this is the search I used:
                                  https://trakt.tv/search?query=Mayans+MC

                                  I wonder... for prevention ... if there might be a way for the database to identify existing duplicate IMDB and TMDB IDs. Also, possibly a check when adding a new entity for existing entities with the same IMDB ID. Not that you would explicitely prevent such things, but maybe add a warning that you are about to add an entity that has an existing entity matching the IMDB crossed to the TVDB and/or TMDB entity you are attempting to add. As a free user, I am limited on what…

                                  • Date/Time of new shows

                                    Hey. Just a question... The time a show is broadcast was being pulled from TVDB, right?

                                    In their new website it's impossible to add that info anymore to new shows. So, weird things happen. Example: this TV Show https://trakt.tv/shows/bailando-con-las-estrellas that I added today, it's broadcast on Tuesdays at 10:35pm. Since I can't put the time on TVDB, Track.tv shows the episode date/time as (using yesterday as example) May 15, 2018 00:00. But, I'm in Portugal then, with the production info correctly added in TMDB, that episode is shown to me with the date/time May 14, 2018 23:00 (11:00pm) because of…

                                        • Non-existent episodes in season

                                          Real quick, there's a lot of extra episodes in 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

                                          Season 8 should only have 4 episodes: https://trakt.tv/shows/8-out-of-10-cats-does-countdown/seasons/8
                                          Season 10 has one episode too many, should be 5: https://trakt.tv/shows/8-out-of-10-cats-does-countdown/seasons/10
                                          Season 11 should only have 7: https://trakt.tv/shows/8-out-of-10-cats-does-countdown/seasons/11
                                          Season 12 should only have 9: https://trakt.tv/shows/8-out-of-10-cats-does-countdown/seasons/12
                                          Season 13 should only have the first 3: https://trakt.tv/shows/8-out-of-10-cats-does-countdown/seasons/13

                                          You can double check both with Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8_Out_of_10_Cats_Does_Countdown) or TheTVDB (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/8-out-of-10-cats-does-countdown). Both of them have the correct episodes.
