  1. Personal Top 10

    It will be cool if everyone had a custom Top 10 for both shows and movies and we will be able to choose which show/movie are in the Top and choose the order.

      • Give lists a type, then use that in filter and search

        Lists would be a great way to find new shows to watch, but when searching for a show in lists, most of the results are of the 'shows I've watched/want to watch' type and therefore not helpful.

        If lists had a category attribute, (For instance: Best Of, Favorite, Watchlist, Watched, Personal, Recommendation) and that category could be used to filter search, then the results could, eventually, be much more helpful.

        • Customizing Upcoming Schedule

          While the upcoming schedule is great, the fact that it includes shows on my watchlist makes certain days rather long. Perhaps we can have an option in the settings to display only a schedule that is the shows we've marked as watched.

          • Search for show(s) in lists

            As a way to find new shows, and compatible users, it would be great to be able to search inside lists.

            The current list search seems to find list names, not content in the list.

            A couple of regular language examples:
            "Show me lists that have The Hidden Fortress"
            "Show me lists that include Star Wars and The Hidden Fortress"

              Alternate show dates for different regions (i.e. Doctor Who on BBC America vs. Doctor Who on BBC One)

              • Next chapter to check-in shown on the serie's homepage.

                It would be great if the next chapter to check-in was shown on the serie's homepage.

                • Show only Shows I have unwatched collected episodes of in Progress

                  When looking at the progress page, I can see all the shows I have started, but have unwatched episodes for. If I look at my collection, it's all about finishing the collection.

                  I'd like to filter/combine that together a bit more. I'd like to see a list of shows that I have in my collection, yet haven't finished watching. That is, ny show I have with unwatched episodes. Possibly with another option to only show the shows that I have a complete collection for (so I don't get stuck in the middle).

                  • Loving or Hating(Rating) a character

                    Everyone has characters that they like or don't like. It would be nice if we could say "Like" or "don't like" so we can see which personage is loved or hated. Maybe add an option to tell why you love or hate them

                    • Link to Metacritic.com

                      if it is possible can you add a link to Metacritic.com for Movies and TV Shows, like the links to wikipedia and IMDb. It would be good to see critic reviews and scores for Movies/TV Shows

                      • Better Favorite Sections

                        Make the favorite show and movie sections independent of the user's show and movie ratings. Not every favorite is of a highly rated quality and not every high quality rated show or movie is a personal favorite.

                        • List view as an alternative to grid view

                          Make a written list of movies and show people have watch in alphabetical order. Include in it the rating given by the user and comments they may wish to write about the movie or show. This will make for a more condensed and orderly way of viewing your movies and shows.

                          • Comments with progress timestamps (in e.g. XBMC)

                            When you are watching something and you see a specific scene, it could be neat to have the ability to post a comment for that specific time in video.

                            E.g.
                            Comment: "Best quote ever! owned!"
                            Stamp: Game.of.Thrones.S01E02.720p.HDTV(00h27m57s-00h29m07s)

                                • 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…

                                    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.

                                        • [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!
