  1. Search Prediction for the search box

    well. im talking about search prediction like google has, when u type something and automatically the site suggest the rest of the search and the list is presented under the search box, its really missing, pretty easy to add (:
    example :

    • Idea: Community Moderators

      Hi,

      Trakt is growing bigger and bigger, with the new v2 it's obvious that you guys are a little bit shortstaffed.

      It isn't easy to manage 800k users and this huge pile of data with 10 people or something like that. hence, there is a need for external voluntary help.

      For example, you have GoodReads, it's a huge social network for books, it relays on a 'librarian' system where people can apply to be a 'librarian', a librarian can add books and edit current ones, add posters and stuff like that, then there's superior librarians who have more power and…

      • Official Lists

        Official Lists should be brought back I used to like looking to see how many of the IMDB top 250 movies I had seen. Along with box set lists of movies that are together such as Star Wars.

        • network activity

          Please make the Network Activity section on the dashboard bigger.

          A lot of my friends (and me including) love to marathon tv shows and at the moment I can just see the last 9 episodes. If my friends marathon a show I won't be able to see any other activity and I just don't want to check everyone's history individually.
          If this idea messed up the new dashboard, then it would also be an idea to add a "Read more" button next to that section and that button could redirect us to the last 30 or 40 activities/entries of our…

          • Disable rating for movies and episodes that won't be released in a month (or longer)

            I know you declined this for *all* movies and episodes that haven't been released, because you're not sure if the release date is correct, but could you at least disable it for more distant release dates? (not including episodes with missing dates)
            If you enable rating about a month before something's released (maybe earlier if that's necessary), you should be able to know if the exact release date is correct, right?

              Unfortunately this is still very hard to predict with earlier online premieres and different release dates around the world. I’d like to do this as well, so i’ll leave it to continue researching.

            • Filter History by month

              It would be awesome if you could restore the functionality to filter the history page by month and get an overview of how many episodes and movies I watched during that month.

              • [suggestion][bug] Adding New shows to watchlist as a "TV show" instad of "1st episode"

                Under calendar, when you go to "All / New Shows" and you click add to watchlist, only specific episode is added to watchlist.

                Suggestion: Add whole "TV show" to watch list instead of episode only.
                Else please change "All / New Shows" to "All / New Episodes". It is misleading.

                Bug: Also in current state under new TV shows, added series episodes do not show up under "My / TV Shows", i.e. on your calendar.

                • Add items to a list from the list page

                  When making a list, you have to go to a movie's page, then add it to the list. It would be so much easier if we could also add several movies to the list at once. For example: When you create a list, the first thing you see is an overview of all movies/people/shows/etc. (with search and filter options), and you only have to check a box next to (or on) the item to add it. I'd love that! :)

                  • Check-In description information

                    Nothing wrong with the actual check-in service. I've had good functionality with the features in v1 and v2 (post updated)

                    What I can't find on any page is how to access the description I wrote into the box under check-in. The fomatting for this box is usually

                    "I'm watching *movie title* (*movie year*)"

                    I'm capable of deleting that entire sentence and writing my own, or editing it to how I see fit. The problem is after I hit "check in" and look for that description I wrote, it's nowhere to be found.

                    Being able to edit it post check-in would…

                      • 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.

                                  • Add Quotes or notes to the movies or tv shows you've watched

                                    I think that it would be great if you can add quotes of a movie or show you want to remember (something similar seen on seenth.at) or you just simply found something interesting and you want to write it down for yourself (similar to the notes on goodreads)

                                    • 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"
