  1. Custom genres for anime

    You previously added some genres based on keywords on trakt. I would like to propose the following to be added to that list, primarily having anime shows in mind:
    - Harem (http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2859) (could be handled as romance but shows usually have no "winning" girl)
    - Slice of Life (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2864) (imho the biggest one since "drama" doesn't fit at all)
    - Mecha (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2638)
    - Ecchi (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2856) (could be handled as "erotic" to cover regular content too)
    - Romance (TMDB has yet to create this as a genre for TV shows..)
    - Horror (same..)

    • Fetch hidden/progress_watched for other users

      Would it be possible to add an API to fetch the hidden/progress_watched list for other users (respecting privacy settings)? I would like to use this as a proxy for whether the user intends to continue watching the show.

      • Movie Location & Friends

        I've been trying to clean up some movie tickets and I wanted to add the theater names, location, and possible who I was with.

        • User contributions

          Different from this one: http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/3599694-show-statistics-about-users-who-edited-and-added-i

          This is for user contributions to be tracked here. Meaning, duplicates reported, errors found, imported movies and shows, etc. On the same, those who contribute and help keep the Trakt database looking better might get some privs or something. When things are found like missing artwork or duplicates, since users cannot do refreshes on their own, they need to report the issue, which helps Trakt and its paid users, and all users.

          It seems that a lot of the errors that get into Trakt reply on users to get corrected, so this would just be…

          • Dashboard recommendations

            It would be great if the recommendations would be a bit random. When the same ones appear each and every time you log in, they become less "discovery" and more ignored. I saw other ideas on how to select them, which all would be nice, but I think that no matter the method, a bit of randomization / variety to them would be nice.

            • Follow a List

              Would be nice, if there a way to follow a User List or import the list to the watchlist.

              Sometimes we see great lists... but always need to return to the list to see non-watched movies, etc...

              • Viewer's Milestones

                Hello
                I have small idea - special page in profile, where user can observe they milestones for using trakt.tv.
                Milestones would be like:
                - watched 100 episodes,
                - watched 1000 episodes,
                - watched 150 movies,
                - watched 30 comedies,
                - watched whole [eg. Marvel Cinematic Universe] list,
                - spend 100 hours watching shows,
                - spend one month watching tv shows,
                - started watching [eg. The Big Bang Theory]
                - finished series: [eg. Strike Back]
                - created first list,
                - added 100 items to Watchlist,
                - friended 10 users,
                - had VIP account for 6 months.

                • Australian Free-to-Air EPG metadata

                  I own the only operator in Australia who owns its own FTA metadata. We won landmark High Court case supporting our methods. You need to use our metadata to integrate into your service and our TV apps would fit nicely.

                  • Dashboard News for Show/Season

                    Hi,
                    I really like the new implementations that have been made on dashboard (on deck to watch/upcoming schedule), I find myself hardly in need to go on calendar anymore.
                    I had an idea for another block on dashboard, let me know what you think of this :
                    News for shows you are watching that would let you know the changes in said shows, for example when you get the information a new season has been ordered/renewed or when a show has been cancelled/ended. I do believe it would be extremely useful. Especially for some - a little unknown - shows…

                    • IFTTT playback status and scrobble triggers

                      I would really like to IFTTT triggers such as:

                      - Movie playback started
                      - Movie playback paused
                      - Movie playback resumed
                      - Movie playback finished
                      - Movie scrobbled
                      - TV ep playback started
                      - TV ep playback paused
                      - TV ep playback resumed
                      - TV ep playback finished
                      - TV ep scrobbled

                      These could be used for all sorts of things such as triggering Hue lights to dim/turn off/turn on etc. during movie playback. Or adding the name of movies I watched together with the date I watched them to a Google spreadsheet.

                      Any chance this might happen?

                        I love the idea, but its going to take IFTTT wanting to do a deeper integration with Trakt. I’ve reached out a few times before, but maybe if users also message them it will get more traction.

                      • Idea: Community Moderators

                        Hi,

                        Trakt is growing bigger and bigger, with the new v2 it's obvious that you guys are a little bit shortstaffed.

                        It isn't easy to manage 800k users and this huge pile of data with 10 people or something like that. hence, there is a need for external voluntary help.

                        For example, you have GoodReads, it's a huge social network for books, it relays on a 'librarian' system where people can apply to be a 'librarian', a librarian can add books and edit current ones, add posters and stuff like that, then there's superior librarians who have more power and…

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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…
