  1. "Most watched TV show" should be about total time

    If I watch 10 5-minute-episodes, this doesn't really mean that the show should be prominently featured on my profile over a show with 8 episodes that are 1 hour each. How much someone likes a show is best shown by how much time they spend watching it; episode counts are arbitrary and favor sitcoms over real shows.

  2. Add a way to flag duplicates directly from item pages

    Would it be possible to add some way to flag duplicates directly on the site?

    For example adding a link "this is/has a duplicate" next to the "refresh data" that open a pop-up where you can enter a link to the duplicate/original of a movie/show, maybe even a comment if details are needed.
    It would be easier and quicker for user to inform you about them and you could even see the links that are flagged more often and correct them first.

    It would reduce the number of support messages and make duplicate/error signaling accessible to the less curious of…

  3. International Watch Now links

    I find that when I click on the where to watch button and it says a show is available on Netflix, it actually isn't always because it seems to only be based off the American catalogue. So I was just wondering if it would be possible to make the where to watch location specific so if it says a program/film is available on a platform, it actually is

  4. Add VRV

    vrv.co is a new site by CrunchyRoll to watch anime, but it also pulls in Shudder, Funimation Online, and other content sites.

  5. Adjust "up next" episodes to be selected as earliest unwatched episode for people skipping around a series.

    TL;DR: If I've viewed some episodes from season 1 and some from season 7, let me choose my "next episode" to default to the earliest unwatched episode (season 1) rather than the current default of the latest (season 7).

    Shows without a plot (i.e. documentaries, sketch shows, etc.) are quite often watched out of order. For example, here's my viewing of ESPN's 30 for 30 series.

    http://i.imgur.com/6N8GzKW.png

    As you can see episode 3x03 is "up next" but I still have quite a few episodes before it in season 1 and 2 to watch. The true "next" episode for me to…

  7. Make 'Data refresh' available for everyone (improves it for everyone ;)

    Hi,

    so I changed some shows in TMDB. I guess I could now manually refresh it in trakt. Wouldn't it make sense to allow this for everyone? Currently, I would have to inform you (or support) and they do it manually... if you could just tell all wrong show info complainers to go to TMDB, fix it and they just hit refresh when done, you will never have to fix something manually ;)

    thanks,
    chris

  9. Dashboard up next to watch little bug

    Hi,

    There's a little bug in the count progress of the up next to watch (i'm on GMT +1). I'm pretty sure it's related to the time zone has I know it will display the good progress later in the day.
    http://imgur.com/Ruj9tXu (it should be 17/18)

    By the way, there's also something that bothers me a bit :
    I have "Tomorrow" as upcoming start day for "Upcoming schedule" and there's always a time gap (i'm not sure exactly how much time) between when the show disappears from the upcoming schedule and it appears in the up next to watch part.

  10. Allow unknown watching date

    i'm a Trakt noob. when my favorite iPhone app completely shifted over to using Trakt for their backend, i had to create a Trakt account if i wanted to continue using it. so i did.

    recently i learned that the Trakt website lets you also track Movie's & such too (yes, i had not visited the actual website until recently); so i began to explore the site & thought i'd start filling in what i've seen & wanna see etc.

    i was astonished to find that i could NOT add any movies to the "History" & "Collection" areas without providing…

  11. Button report

    I believe that a button for reporting erroneous duplicate or registered titles would be good! For I have seen several series registered as movies and personal giving checkin anyway. And with the button would be easier to report, rather than being created topic here.

  12. See aggregated friends ratings / activities / collections

    It would be great if /network section would not (only) be a list of people in your network, but an aggregation of activities of everyone in your network.
    To be able to see what my friends have been up to, find what they have rated highly (find recommendations). Going to each friends /history/ page is not nearly as fun for that ;)

    Alternatively perhaps in search filter in addition to "RATED" filter there can be "FRIENDS RATED" filter to achieve a similar result.

  13. RE: Option to hide adult movies from search and site overall

    I've already opened a ticket about this (closed now) but if we're gonna just do it manually then it's going to be quite the long list. So here's what I'm suggesting...

    Since the issue here is TMDb's definiton of what constitutes an 'adult movie' (most of Tinto Brass' filmography is not marked as such, while most people would describe his movies as "porn but, like... with dialogue") a middle ground can be found in the tags of these movies (which makes them appear in the recommendation sections and search). So while, say, Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens is not…

  14. Add "where" and "with" fields

    It would be nice to be able to indicate where and with who has been seen a particular movie/episode. In particular:

    [1] Every "watch date" should have its "where" and "with".
    [2] In the "where" field I can write what I want.
    [3] In the "with" field I can write what I want or add a trakt user.
    [4] If in the "where" field I enter "Sunshine Cinema", this place is automatically saved in a specific "Places" page, in which I can add/delete/edit all the places.
    [5] The places in the "Places" page are automatically suggested when I set the…

  15. Most Watched TV Show

    On the profile page, the section titled:
    MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
    Is, or can be, a bit misleading. Example of what I mean:
    TV Show 1 (TV1) has 150 episodes
    TV Show 2 (TV2) has 20 episodes

    Now, I watch TV1 in its entirety, so that is 150 watches. Now I watch TV2, all episodes, 5 times. That is 100 watches. Now, the section titled most watched... will say that TV1 is most watched. Now TV1 has the most watches, because it has the most episodes, but really TV2 is the most watched as it has been watched 5 times…

  17. Most Watched boxes customizable

    During my childhood I watched many animes such as Dragon Ball Z.
    If I check-in the seasons the TV Show becomes my most watched TV Show by far.
    Therefore this will never change since it has over 200 episodes and no new TV Shows today will have that much (I think)
    I would like to be able to add this TV Show in my watched list but don't think having it as my most watched TV show is really relevant.
    This applies for movies too.

    Suggestions

    - Allow in settings profile section to choose if Most Watched boxes should refer…

  20. Movie language matching with "original title"

    After coming by this too often:
    Please rely on the original title language from TMDB only as a fallback. It's wrong on tons of foreign movies due to the fact that the field was added just over a year ago.

    I would take the language field as the default and only if multiple languages are found do a comparison with the "original title". Wouldn't hurt to display all of them anyways though ;).
