  1. Provide an option between the default grid view and a simplified list view for your history

    I want to be able to see all the shows/movies I've watched, at a glance, in a simple vertical list, rather than in a large grid. The vertical list should be sortable by title, date started, date completed, number of episodes watched, etc.

    • Add runtimes to user history RSS feed

      Adding runtimes to each entry in the user history RSS feed would make the feed far more useful in IFTTT.

      I'm looking at sending entries to a specific Google Calendar (rather than loading the iCal feed into a separate calendar). I believe this format will work for Google Calendar quick entry in IFTTT: "1 hour 30 minutes".

      Thank you!

      • [VIP] SET COVER is great, but...

        ...to find the perfect cover is very heavy.

        Please make an option on lists or elsewhere to change the view from poster/cover to fanart ;)

        and by the way, let me reposition the picture, like on facebook.

        greetings,

          • Dashboard News for Show/Season

            Hi,
            I really like the new implementations that have been made on dashboard (on deck to watch/upcoming schedule), I find myself hardly in need to go on calendar anymore.
            I had an idea for another block on dashboard, let me know what you think of this :
            News for shows you are watching that would let you know the changes in said shows, for example when you get the information a new season has been ordered/renewed or when a show has been cancelled/ended. I do believe it would be extremely useful. Especially for some - a little unknown - shows…

            • On Deck always shows latest episode of series to check into not last marked episode

              I honestly don't even know if I'm describing this correctly but I shall try. I don't always watch shows from the first episode, especially if watching on TV. For the past month, when I check into a show that I have watched previously, if I check into an episode that aired BEFORE the episode I just checked into, it always shows the episode AFTER the one I checked into long before.

              For example: I checked into The Andy Griffith Show episode 8x24 then started watching the show again from Season 1 and checked into episode 1x01 but my Recently Watched…

              • use yours and a friends profile to find movies none of you have seen

                Wouldnt it be awesome when trying to find movies to watch

                1. pick friend/s to watch with
                2. press a ''lets watch a movie button''
                3. get a list of all the movies none of you have seen, with various ways of filtering it of course

                this kind of goes towards having a more social and interacting Trakt, and a easy way to sell in trakt to your friends

                • Let us remind ourselves why we added a movie to our Watchlist (with a note)

                  You're going to love this idea. Ok, so we're human, right? We have 24 hours in a day, 9 of those are spent working, and we get about 2 to watch a movie or some TV. We've all got way too many movies on each of our Watchlists, and many us, by the time we get around to watching some of these movies we added to our Watchlist, we've totally forgotten why we added the movie to it in the first place (why we were interested), especially when you added it for some reason like, a friend recommended it to…

                  • Add Plot Keywords. User can thumbs up if agree. Info taken from www.themoviedb.org

                    On TV Show/ Movie information pages you can add a list of Plot Keywords. For Example: post-apocalyptic , superhero , future .
                    This information should be available from www.themoviedb.org

                    I would think it would be cool to also add a user thumbs up for each keyword on the info page. So the users can decide which keywords fit the best from themoviedb list. You can then show the more favored ones differently then less thumbed up ones.

                    • Users can add recommendations on a movie/show page -along with a comment-

                      Like the way MyAnimeList.net does. people can post recommendations and appear in the movie/serie page like the comments does.. the recommendations with more likes show up first.

                      this can replace the actual recommendations system, which, obviously suck.

                      • A options that you could subscribe or un subscribe from a show

                        For example: if i watch one or two episodes it doesn't necessarily mean i want to continue to watch the show. therefore if you want, you can subscribe to it or dont, so it would show in my progress page and in my calendar

                        • Get notifications from followed friends

                          When I follow a friend is because I want to know what they watch.
                          I can go thought the network and find out but it would be nice to have some sort of notification system like facebook that shows what have your friends watched recently that we don't know about.

                          • Edit watched status by date (in case of client glitch)

                            A misbehaving client can quickly mark thousands of movies or episodes as marked, incorrectly. To undo this takes considerable manual time. Since an error like this occurs quickly at once, there should be an option to unwatch everything watched on a specific date. This would allow a quick and easy solution for a major issue.

                            (In this case, I believe a dog sat on my keyboard. By hitting "W", it marked hundreds of movies as watched, wrongly.)

                            • Include '<' and '>' Buttons in Thumbnails to Navigate Through Episodes/Seasons

                              We can already navigate through seasons/episodes by clicking the '<' and '>' arrows on the covers at the top of pages such as this: http://trakt.tv/shows/archer/seasons/4

                              I would appreciate this function to be available in the thumbnails of episodes and seasons as well. IDEALLY, the '<' and '>' arrows would appear on the left and right sides of the thumbnail only when the mouse hovers over them, so that it doesn't obstruct the image until necessary.
                              Another alternative (though it's less beneficial) is to only show the '>' arrow at the bottom of the thumbnail between the 'Manage lists' icon and…

                              • Differentiate a first-time watch from a rewatch on the Recently Watched sections of user profiles.

                                When taking a glance at the recently watched sections of a user's profile page, it's easy to assume that the user has just watched the movie/show for the first time, even if that user originally watched said movie/show a long time ago. I think that it's very important to distinguish the difference between a first-time watch and a rewatch as they are very different experiences for the user, and that maybe adding a rewatch label/icon or giving the option to hide rewatches from the recently watched sections would be a good idea.

                                • Group episodes of a show that are marked as watched simultaneously on the history page

                                  Marking a season of a show, or the whole show itself, as watched will display each of the show's episode on the history page. Imagine that on a show with 200 episode that you had watched previously, for example. You mark this show as watched and then you check your history. You'll have to navigate through a lot of pages that display the show's episodes and it's kind of an unpleasant experience, especially when you want to review your watched history.

                                    I would really like to IFTTT triggers such as:

                                    - Movie playback started
                                    - Movie playback paused
                                    - Movie playback resumed
                                    - Movie playback finished
                                    - Movie scrobbled
                                    - TV ep playback started
                                    - TV ep playback paused
                                    - TV ep playback resumed
                                    - TV ep playback finished
                                    - TV ep scrobbled

                                    These could be used for all sorts of things such as triggering Hue lights to dim/turn off/turn on etc. during movie playback. Or adding the name of movies I watched together with the date I watched them to a Google spreadsheet.

                                    Any chance this might happen?

                                    I know…

                                      I love the idea, but its going to take IFTTT wanting to do a deeper integration with Trakt. I’ve reached out a few times before, but maybe if users also message them it will get more traction.

                                    • Progress Page On Actors/Actress Profile

                                      When you go onto an Actor/Actress profile there should be a progress meter similar to the TV show one where it would tell you how many of the movies you have watched of the actor. This could also include a hide watched function. For example, If I were to go onto Chris Pratt's page it would show that I have watched The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy. It would also say that I have watched 2 out of 25 things he is in. There could also be another function to filter TV Shows and Movies. Thank you.

                                      • Add filter for most popular(most followed/commented...) user lists

                                        One thing I would love to see coming back from old site is the popular
                                        lists section where you could browse through most popular (liked/followed/commented) user lists. In the past I used this to discover some great movies this way! Example for a former popular list:
                                        http://trakt.tv/users/_varg/lists/great-movies-you-may-have-never-heard-of

                                        I know that I can use the search to look for personal lists using:

                                        http://trakt.tv/search/lists?q=afi

                                        But there's no way to filter for most followed lists (month/year/week) as far as I know. What do you think?

                                        • Delete history from a specific date

                                          I recently had an error (probably a problem with an app) and during a single day, my episode play count for all my shows doubled/tripled! I know you can remove the watched statuses one by one, but as I now have thousands of watches in one day, that is just impossible! Also, removing the watched for the entire show is just as absurd! Is there a way to remove all of your plays/watches of a specific date (say Feb 20), so I won't have these extra watches messing up my record? If there isn't, is there a way to implement…
