  1. Collection Settings

    It would be nice if there was a way to set your default Collection viewing options. There is a place to set settings for Collection progress, but unless I'm missing it, there's no way to set preferences for the Collection itself. Currently, it defaults to All Types by Recently Collected... for me, it'd be more useful to show Shows by Title every time I see my Collection (thankfully, it does that on Kodi where I primarily use my Collection, but it would be helpful not to have to reset my view every time I go to it on the website).…

    • Hidden items - small bug

      https://trakt.tv/settings/hidden

      When I have the *same item* in both Calendars and Watched Progress & On Deck, and I click to restore the item in Calendars, the similar item in Watched Progress & On Deck is fading away too, but when I refresh the item is back in Watched Progress & On Deck.

      looks like a small bug...

      • Chrome Extension: trakttvstats

        Hi !

        I made an open source Chrome extension to add some functionalities to the website that was missing for my use.

        It adds dynamic charts on people pages with personal statistics & complex filtering, to have a precise overview on what you've seen of the filmography of the current person. In addition to the stats candy, it's really a way to navigate in someone's work trough the user own history.

        It also adds translation of movies titles, information and posters in the language of your choice (trough TMDb) and enable the addition of links to any websites in the…

            Planning to add this back. It was removed since it was unclear to most users what it was even for. Still figuring out the best way to display that info.

          • Comments and Moderation

            I've written a rather short summary of my thoughts about the comments in v2 of trakt here: https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/7325147-a-little-feedback-about-comments

            Now, this was closed at the end of April with the comment saying the not finished, other things you'd "cover" in other tasks. So, 8 months later and nothing more happened.
            There's an even older suggestion about "community moderators" here: https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/6955017-idea-community-moderators
            That one is from January with a "Long Term" label.
            While I do not agree with the suggested application requirements, I still do think trakt definitely needs moderators for comments.
            And with moderators a way to message people directly. That would…

              • The Where & The What

                I was throwing away my movie tickets (cus yes, I saved tens of them), and logging the dates I saw the movies with my friends. It was cool, reminiscing with the titles and dates and looking back to the good ol' days.

                My title describes what's absent from this already amazing website. We have the the when (dates) and the why (I'm assuming you like the movies you saw). But not the where and the what. Was it at a movie theater in Chicago? On demand at your house in florida, dvd, vhs, blu-ray?

                This would help recapture the memories…

                • How many movies have you seen from a specific person?

                  I added this idea on vip forum, but might as well post here to for the general pop to see :)

                  Its fun to know :

                  • Hide list icon when inside that list

                    The icon for lists is always blue for every movies when viewing a list (duh!) so it could be interesting to color only the icon of the movies who are in other lists than the one we're in

                    • Movie sets/Sequels

                      I would really love that when you're watching some movie's page it would show somewhere that is it a part of some movie set (sequels etc.).

                      • What do I know this actor/actress from? (filter actor/actresses shows/movies by watched)

                        Often I recognize an actor/actress, and I find their name, but I'm still not sure what show/movie I know them from. You have all the info needed to fix that!

                        I suggest there be a way to filter the shows/movies on a "people" page (trakt.tv/people/...) to only show the shows/movies that you've watched. This functionality will only improve in helpfulness as people update their trakt profiles to be more complete, and as trakt's actor database becomes more exhaustive.

                          • Import more/all credits

                            It would be great if there was a way to get the complete credits for an item on the site. Limiting it to just the director and actors is overly simplistic.

                                You're going to love this idea. Ok, so we're human, right? We have 24 hours in a day, 9 of those are spent working, and we get about 2 to watch a movie or some TV. We've all got way too many movies on each of our Watchlists, and many us, by the time we get around to watching some of these movies we added to our Watchlist, we've totally forgotten why we added the movie to it in the first place (why we were interested), especially when you added it for some reason like, a friend recommended it to…

                                • Add filter for most popular(most followed/commented...) user lists

                                  One thing I would love to see coming back from old site is the popular
                                  lists section where you could browse through most popular (liked/followed/commented) user lists. In the past I used this to discover some great movies this way! Example for a former popular list:
                                  http://trakt.tv/users/_varg/lists/great-movies-you-may-have-never-heard-of

                                  I know that I can use the search to look for personal lists using:

                                  http://trakt.tv/search/lists?q=afi

                                  But there's no way to filter for most followed lists (month/year/week) as far as I know. What do you think?

                                    well. im talking about search prediction like google has, when u type something and automatically the site suggest the rest of the search and the list is presented under the search box, its really missing, pretty easy to add (:
                                    example :

                                      Official Lists should be brought back I used to like looking to see how many of the IMDB top 250 movies I had seen. Along with box set lists of movies that are together such as Star Wars.

                                        Please make the Network Activity section on the dashboard bigger.

                                        A lot of my friends (and me including) love to marathon tv shows and at the moment I can just see the last 9 episodes. If my friends marathon a show I won't be able to see any other activity and I just don't want to check everyone's history individually.
                                        If this idea messed up the new dashboard, then it would also be an idea to add a "Read more" button next to that section and that button could redirect us to the last 30 or 40 activities/entries of our…

                                        • Add items to a list from the list page

                                          When making a list, you have to go to a movie's page, then add it to the list. It would be so much easier if we could also add several movies to the list at once. For example: When you create a list, the first thing you see is an overview of all movies/people/shows/etc. (with search and filter options), and you only have to check a box next to (or on) the item to add it. I'd love that! :)
