  1. 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

    • Synchronize with iTunes and iOS watched status

      I watch movies and series episodes on my Mac or iPhone, and would really like to sync my watched statuses to Trakt.

      • 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.

        • 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…

          • 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.

            • 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…

              • 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…

                • 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…

                    • 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

                          • 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 ;).

                            • private profile public list

                              I have a private profile, but would like to make one of my lists public.

                              At the moment this doesn't seem to be possible. (Searches for the name of the list, already set to Public, does not return any results. If I go directly to the link of the list when logged out, what shows up is a message that the user is private, and not the public list.)

                              • Add personal status to shows via the progress page.

                                I would be really cool if users can mark/flag their shows manually, for example:

                                Watching - If the user is actively watching it.
                                Renewed - If the user has caught up and the shows is on break.
                                Airing - If the user has caught up and the show is airing.
                                Hiatus - If the user has caught up and the show is on midseason break or something like that.
                                On-Hold - If the user has paused watching the show but hasn't dropped it.
                                Dropped - If the user doesn't intend to watch any-more.
                                Re-watching - If the user is re-watching…

                                • Add TMDB as an alternative to pull TV data

                                  I've been using trakt a lot, I have a lot of different shows on my progress list, and recently I have started to notice that TVDB has some stupid rules, and don't allow certain shows to be added.

                                  I propose that there should be a way for a specific show to pull its data from TMDB instead, that doesn't have those stupid rules, I don't know how hard that would be to implement, but since the website already pulls the data for movies from TMDB, I hope not a lot.

                                  • Friends watched or followings watched ?

                                    If I follow someone who's profile is not private,

                                    I would be happy to see if he watched a movie/episode when you go on the movie/episode's page.
                                    This only works if you're friends. But since the profile is public, I could go and check it manually. Which is a bit a waste of a time.
                                    My point is it should be
                                    Followings with public profil as minimal requirement to see it on those pages.

                                    | 357 watching now | 2 followings watched | Rated by 1 following |

                                    I assume here that ratings are available if profile is public

                                    • Lock lists

                                      Allowing lists to be "locked". So a movie can't be added or removed from the film page. It can be annoying when a list is "complete" (ex. a film festival or the Top X from year Y) and by mistake I add a movie who has nothing to do in this list because I clicked the wrong one. It hold no sense to propose me to add the movie to a list when the list is "locked" or "finished"

                                      • Graphically present timeline of watched/collected episodes

                                        I think it would be cool and useful if the progress bars in the watched/collected screens was filled by what episodes you've seen, so that if there's a 3 season show, and you've seen season two, the 33% of the bar filled would be in the middle of the progress bar. Gives a nice one-look view of whether you are missing any of the latest episodes.

                                        For a graphical representation, see https://www.dropbox.com/s/j5wdnn22x58c9w1/trakt-idea.jpg?dl=0

                                        • use yours and a friends profile to find movies none of you have seen

                                          Wouldnt it be awesome when trying to find movies to watch

                                          1. pick friend/s to watch with
                                          2. press a ''lets watch a movie button''
                                          3. get a list of all the movies none of you have seen, with various ways of filtering it of course

                                          this kind of goes towards having a more social and interacting Trakt, and a easy way to sell in trakt to your friends
