    • Add a "watched up to this" button

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

        • After signup, optimize new user flow to add all the movies I've seen

          The first thing I want to do after signing up is to add all the shows and movies I've seen. This isn't really accommodated very well with the current flow. I would expect the option to view all movies in the db (with various sort options - alpha numeric at least). I'd also really expect the option to hide all movies I've seen from all search results (featured, trending, full list, etc.) to help me get it done. Since I'd want to add literally thousands of movies to my Seen list (valuable data that you want me to enter), you…

          • Popular Actors, Directors and other Cast.

            Just how you can sort for the most popular television shows and movies, it would be nice to also bring up the most popular actors, directors and other cast members.

            • Watch a TV Show or Movie with a friend

              Often times, I don't watch movies or TV shows alone, but with friends. It would be nice, if only one person would check into a movie/show and mark the others. That way you could not only track which shows/movies you have watched, but also with whom.

              If you would like to make things more complex, you could link a foursquare profile to your trakt account and check in (movies/shows) those friends who are checked into the same venue as you are. But that's maybe over the top ;)

              • [idea] "My Top 10" default user list

                What do you say about a list called "My Top 10" that every user has by default.
                The max count of items on that list is 10, no more.

                Use case could be a page like http://trakt.tv/movies/popular where the most favored items of all trakt members are displayed.

                This way we could narrow the many thousend of popular items to a top 100.

                • 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.

                  • [idea] check items on friends lists

                    Lets say I am on a movie page, and I click on "lists" I'll get for example here: http://trakt.tv/movie/thor-the-dark-world-2013/lists
                    The given navigation elements are: "Personal" "Official" "Watchlists" "All" - of all members of trakt.
                    On those pages it would be fantastic to filter JUST the list of friends (or people I follow) - so I could see if he/she already has it on his/her watchlist or any personal list.

                    That way I don't have to recommend it anymore, when he/she knows it already.

                    Thank you!

                    • 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…

                      • Hidden Shows - Additions!

                        Well - here's my idea. The ability to hide a show from your progress bar is great, but we all have guilty pleasure shows that we'd rather not tell everybody about. So being able to watch a show, check it in on the website and all, without making it visible to everybody would be great. Just being able to hide it from your public profile would be great.

                        • Publich collected movies, shows, and episodes to facebook, twitter, etc

                          When i download a show\tv series\movie and rename them manually (or automatically using renaming software) and add them into my collection, I would like to have the option to enable notifications to twitter (especially) and maybe even facebook.
                          This would come in handy especially when im using software that automatically downloads, renames and adds the files to xbmc and sends a notification to Trakt. Trakt then sends a notification to twitter & facebook. Hope that makes sense.

                            • 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.

                              • Embedded Preview Trailers For Movies and TV Shows

                                When browsing the dashboard or home page on trakt, I occasionally find some interesting movies or TV shows that I would like to preview.

                                I thought it would be neat and convenient if a user can hover over a poster of a movie or TV show, and be able to view a trailer straight from trakt without having to search for it on youtube or through some other media source. Bascially if a user, hovers over the poster and clicks play, a pop out embedded video of the trailer would start playing.

                                • 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! :-)

                                    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.

                                    • Writer, director, and guest stars for TV episodes

                                      I was wondering if it's possible to get the Writer/Director information from TV-episodes over to trakt. Right now those are missing on the people page. Maybe connecting the show and an episode count would be enough?

                                      TV-directors just get left off the site. But many well known film directors like Spielberg, Scorsese, Tarantino, Cameron, Hitchcock, J.J. Abrams and Lynch have had their hand in TV aswell (without credit on the site). Anthology series are another thing where this would be great.
