  1. Follow People (Actors) and get notifications

    It would be great to follow or like people (actors), so trakt can notify me about new movies of this person or use this information to recommend movies with actors I like/follow

    • Import my checkins from gomiso.com

      It would be nice when I could import my checkins from gomiso.com and scrobble my trakt checkin to them back.

          • Smart lists

            I think it would be great if you could implement smart lists similar to the smart playlists in iTunes so you could create dynamic playlists with say actor X and actor Y in category Z. The playlist should automatically update when new content match the filtering.

            • Add the option to skip episodes in your progress tracking

              It would be useful to have the possibility to skip a single episode or season. For example, it is useful to make some special episodes you will never watch disappear from the progress view.

              This is different than dropping a show because you may want to skip one episode but be sure of being notified of the next one.

              • 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.

                • Make it possible to add location to a check-in

                  Please add the possibility to add location with a check-in, similar to Facebook or Twitter so we could track if we watched a video in the cinema or at home. A connection to Foursquare would be nice to for a list of close locations.

                  • UK Airdates

                    Can you in addition to selecting your timezone actually set what country you watch in and then pull the appropriate air dates of episodes in from tv rage/thetvdb.

                    E.g. I live in the UK so 2 broke girls is 8 episodes behind but i'd like to be able to track it consistently with the UK so i'm not seeing episodes that need watching that haven't even aired yet (at least not locally).

                    An option to toggle this on or off for different shows (as some won't have relevant air dates - because tvrage/thetvdb hash't been updated or because it doesn't…

                    • 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)

                        Interesting idea, will have to see if/how something like that can be done. It’s mostly going to be up to the media center or mobile app, who would need to send the timestamp.

                        Ability to like items on a friend's feed. Or comment on them. Like when they start watching a show you really really love and you want to talk to them about it.

                        • Tagging friends when checking in

                          I was thinking about a function where you could (when checking in) to tag someone who's listed as one of your friends. This way would save time when two or more persons that have trakt account watch something together. I say that based on my own experience, when I'm with friends and everyone stops to check in. what would be easier if only one could do that and tagging the other. Of course, that would mean that would have to implement too some kind of mechanism where you would allow some people to tag you and later you could just…

                                Compare your watchprogress with another user (like e.g. in steam).

                                Would be nice to have the possibility to compare the own progress with one (ore more) other users side-by-side.

                                Like http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/3595512-compare-watchlists-with-another-user- this could increase the social process, like whatching episodes, which both are missing together and so on

                                • Import checked list from icheckmovies

                                  As a new user who has found in love with this website (you guys rock!) one thing I would love to do would be to merge my checked movies into trakt.

                                  I cant possibly force myself to go after over 1500 movies, so an import option would be ginormous good news for a user like me. Icheckmovies and maybe other sites provide export lists, so in theory it isnt to tricky.

                                      • better list management

                                        better, easier, faster list management

                                        - manage lists together -> list with all cool tv shows, mark some for me, my girlfriend, which we want look together
                                        - other users can see what items are new on the list
                                        - read the summary and tag it
                                        - better communication when lists change, notifications for "new item added", "item changed by other user", ...

                                        • Chat rooms per movie, show, and episode

                                          If there is chat room that keeps the people who watch the same thing in touch so they can chat about it while they are watching , that would be a lot of fun ,,,, thank u
