  1. Up Next To Watch: use a list as a queue

    Hi

    I have a suggestion for the dashboard, a new section or an option to choose between my watching progress or a custom ranked list that would function as a queue of sorts.

    Obviously this is going to be a little tricky to implement because of the different types of items (movies, shows, seasons, episodes) but it would be very helpful not just as a queue but also as a tool to track the watching order of some shows. For example, I could close the X-Files Essential Episodes and have the first 6 items of that list show up in…

    • "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.

      • I'd like to be able to ignore users

        There are certain individuals writing WOTs for the lamest of episodes imaginable without saying much on a regular basis, or people deliberately spamming the comment section with multiple (different) >1k character comments (but 0-1min timestamp differences).

        I'd like to set a user to be ignored to not see his/her reviews and shouts (or replies). It's greatly annoying to see that a recent episode has like 6-9 comments in total whereas 4-6 are from the same person upon expanding the comment section.
        Or see yet another review talking hot air about redundant, petty things for thousands of characters, pretty much without…

        • Change modal windows behavior

          It would be nice clicking on the modal “backdrop” to automatically close the modal. Currently modals can be closed only with the [ x ] close link in upper right corner of the modals.

          • Limit lists items in view

            It would be nice to limit the number of movies/tv show items that are being loaded to the DOM. When viewing LISTS that contain extensive number of items, it can be resource heavy and take a duration to load. It might be ideal to have a limit of, example 100 (or custom), and have a next page icon to the remaining items.

            • Dismiss Inbox/Notices on all devices

              Currently, whenever I get a new notification from Trakt I can interact with it and then dismiss it with the 🚫 icon. The issue that I have is that If I log onto multiple devices I have to dismiss it on each device individually, even though I have already seen it.

              It would be nice if I could dismiss the notice once and have it removed from everywhere.

              • 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…

                  • Hoopla as a watch now source

                    There is a library based streaming site that if your local public library supports it you sign in with your library card and are able to check out a few movies or tv shows a month. I believe that this may be a good watch now source because it is free and is supported by public libraries.

                      • Provide a Simplified Tracking Option

                        There should be an option in the settings menu that allows users to choose the tracking level they desire (for example, a dropdown list called "Tracking Level" with the options "basic", "standard" and "data nerd").

                        When a user sets their level to basic, they will not be required to record watch dates and can view their lists without any indication of the watch date. This will essentially simplify tracking to a watchlist, watched history, collected and rated. The only date visible could be a "date added" which simply indicates when you added it to a list in Trakt.

                        Reason for…

                          Like on the Website MyAnimeList. When visting the history page of someone elses profile it would be cool to see a little statistics on top which shows how many shows/movies you both watched or rated the same.

                            Hello Trakt.tv team,

                            I have had my Trakt.tv Progress page bookmarked to my home screen on my Android phone for well over a year now. It's so functional that I see no reason for an app, and I thank you sincerely for that. However there is one small but very relevant detail that I personally feel would make your mobile site much more comprehensible; that is having the show info displayed under the episode's visual aid/screenshot, as opposed to the info displaying above as it presently does.

                            Here you can see that on the mobile site the episode info is…

                              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

                                • Ability to "lock" seasons

                                  It would be good if seasons can be "locked" per-say but only after a set amount of time has passed when an episode has not been added.

                                  This stops people from adding Specials or OVA's to the main season and messing up multiple trackers out there like Sonarr.

                                    Ever since the upgrade to TRAKT2.0 I have been missing one of the calendar styles that I loved in the old site, I can't remember what it was called exactly but it had just the right amount of info and the right amount of space usage that it fit perfectly with the huge amount of stuff I watch weekly.

                                    So I made a custom CSS to one of the available styles to mimic that feel, and i've been using it for about *looks at the calendar* 14 months now, and it's working juuust fine (I actually can't remember how it…

                                    • Divide the watchlist in pages

                                      The watchlist is just one page and with around 800 films let's say I could watch all those films before the page loads.

                                      Why can't the watchlist have pages? Like 100 items in the 1st page, 100 on the 2nd and so on.

                                      I had to create custom lists to serve as "new" watchlist because the watchlist is unusable. Yes I can hide tv shows or movies but the page is so heavy that my browser often crashes before it loads. And with around 800 films just hiding the tv show doesn't make the page lighter.

                                      • Hide collected shows from the calendar page

                                        So my Plex library syncs to Trakt, so I have a pretty big collection of shows that I'm watching and a good amount of shows that I'm not watching. After initializing this sync I realized that my calendar page now includes collected shows that I have on my server (like Powerpuff Girls) but do not watch. If I "hide" collections then it will hide the shows that I do watch as well.

                                        I'd like a way to disable collections from interfering with the calendar page as a whole so that it still behaves like it did before (a show appears…

                                        • Suggestion: More data on ratings

                                          I was reading this article, trying to get a handle on whether as a web app dev, pandas might be useful to me.
                                          I saw the example of ratings by age and thought of you, food for thought?
