  1. 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.

    • International airings and EPG data

      Would it be possible to specify the user country, so that in the calendar we can see the airings adapted to the local channel sets?

      For example, FOX Spain airs new episodes of top shows a week later than FOX US, due to (I think) translation and legal issues.

      • News and articles about shows, movies, etc

        I wonder if would be good a main page with news related to series or movies, news in general so we can use trakt for something more than just selecting what we see.. to use it like a real and trustworthy entertainment website.

        Perhaps with a section dedicated to detect series that you've seen or are in your watchlist, so that you go there knowing that you'll read something of your interest.

        • 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! :-)

            • Restart TV Show Progress While Keeping Episode Watch Count

              This problem mainly arose with the most recent 2.0 update to the trakt addon in XBMC, I love the two way syncing system however, when I want to rewatch a tv series I can't make use of the XBMC "watched" feature which is a pain. This happens because if I mark the tv series as unwatched (to start tracking my XBMC progress again) it will automatically mark it as seen upon next load.

              I often watch videos on different systems so the two way syncing is like an angel from heaven, however I think that some sort of system on…

              • Share badges with Achivy.com

                I know the badges for Trakt haven't even really launched yet, but at some point it would be really great if they could be shared to Achivy. I imagine this would just be a question of making the badges available via the Trakt API so they integrate them into Achivy, right?

                • Recommend a show, episode or movie to a friend

                  It would be great if i could recommend a given show, episode or movie to another trakt user.

                  In order to avoid spam i suggest that you can only send a recommendation to a user that follows you.

                  • Show more shout/review statistics about the different Trakt users on the shout/review page

                    Maybe its an idea to show more statistics on shouts and reviews of Trakt users.

                    For example the total amount of shouts can be shown a Trakt user has made and the total amount of likes for all the shouts someone has received besides the likes on the currently displayed shout or review.

                    • Tag your collected items

                      Give us the ability to tag movies, series and episodes in our collection, using tags.

                      Tags can be marked as private, seen by friends or been public, like it's happening with lists.

                      Tags can also have their own unique custom color and can be manipulated through Trakt's API.

                      An example would be to tag some movies for their location in user's library, i.e. in HDD #3 or in BluRay #41. If someone want to do the above example now, using lists, s/he would end up having an enormous number of lists.

                      Another example would be to indicate the format (i.e.…

                      • More specific privacy controls for sections

                        Another one to get more open profiles: Let users choose what information they are showing. There have been instances where previously open lists suddenly got private etc. This would still allow users who are not too eager to show things like their collection or maybe watchlist to others to at least have something public (ex. lists).

                        • Community lists (or moderated lists)

                          Allow for lists to be moderated or have an option for a community list.

                          Moderated list: Allow an author of a list to add moderators. That would allow for the others to make changes to it. And as a further feature allow someone who isn't a moderator to submit an entry for the list. Examples of this could be a list for season previews, festival entries or genre lists.

                          Community list: This could be a list where everyone is allowed to submit one recommendation as for something like "community recommendations" or voting on lists; "trakt's favorite movie of 2012" etc.

                          • Mark multiple episodes watched/collected

                            I would like to be able to see a list of episodes with checkboxes next to each so that I could quickly mark what I have seen or collected. For example, I might have seen a full season except one special episode and it takes too many steps to mark this.

                              • Categories for lists

                                Right now when you're looking for community lists you have to options to choose: Popular and Favorites. Since favorites are mostly good lists (of public interest), many of the other user lists are hardly worth anyone's time or a not supposed to be for the community but for their friends. Example for this: http://i.imgur.com/fZ0IF.png.
                                To ease to process of finding some lists or what you're actually looking for categories would be a big improvement. These could then be chosen when creating a list.

                                Proposed example categories:
                                - "Critics" or "Reviewers" / Lists by critics, review websites etc

                                  I use XBMC, and make use of profiles for; myself, the wife, and the children.

                                  I would like the ability in trakt to create a family account, so we can all still have separate libraries and use different accounts to scrobble. However via the family account they are linked, so there is an overview of what we have all watched etc recently.

                                  Also, possibly the ability when viewing a family members activity to say "I watched this with them too" and have it show up in your feed as well. Or a popup in XBMC much like the rating dialog,…

                                  • 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.

                                      Compare your movie collection with someone else (friend or just another community member). This would show a list of the movies the other person has that you don't.
