  1. [API] Users/watched to include number of seasons/episodes in show/season

    The results from users/watched shows to include how many seasons are actually in the show, and how many episodes there are in the season.

    Then it would be possible to calculate percentage the user has watched of the show without pulling information from every single show to make the calculation.

  2. "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.

  3. 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…

  4. Show what shows/movies you both watched when browsing someones profile

    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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  9. 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

  10. Season Posters

    I think there should be system so we can upload and vote for seasons posters or movie posters, for "perfect" customization. Maybe a vote system once a week for VIPs or all users? Mainly i have 3 matching posters for 3 seasons for Fargo. A harmony in all banners and posters would be "great!" interface for Trakt.tv!

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. Split time watched across days

    Over the last few months, I noticed that I've become really obsessed with finishing watching things before midnight local time to avoid messing up my dashboard graph with stats that appear on the "wrong day".

    It occurred to me tonight, after yet another movie finished just after midnight, that actually, software can solve this problem.

    I propose that Trakt take the timestamp and duration of each item played into account when generating graphs, such that if (as happened tonight) I finish a 126-minute movie at 0:03, 123 of those minutes still appear in the graph for the previous day, and…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…
