    • About the interation betwen the members

      It would be cool if you hone the interaction between members, I refer to "followers" could be in the style of twitter if I follow someone I should get updates from him on my homepage, it encourage people to comment more, make the evaluations ... And "Friends" what's that? How a person becomes friends with another in the site? I do not understand. Leave only the "followers" and "following" would be cool. :)

      • - Seen and - Collection buttons

        When I "+ Seen" a season, the command button should be change to "- Seen". I made a mistake and now I have to go through every single episode. That's frustrating !

          You can remove seen from your history page, it combines them into a single action you can remove. You can remove collections from your library > collection.

        • Missed episodes

          Show list of episodes, which were aired but not watched. Also it could be implemented as API method.

          • Possible Bug with Data refresh?

            For some movies and TV Shows, data refresh does not work for me, ven though I am a VIP user.

            See this TV Show: http://trakt.tv/show/yeditepe-stanbul

            It says two episode on trakt but in fact it is 47 episode on TVDb. When I click refresh info nothing is updated.

            Similar thing happens with this movie: http://trakt.tv/movie/the-dreams-of-others-2011

            Although the genre and backdrop image is up at TMDb, refreshing doesn't update them.

              • Advanced Rating System vs. Favorites

                With the "Advanced Rating System" active it should not show movies & shows rated below "7" or even "8" as a users favorite. As an alternative give us another dropdown option (http://i.imgur.com/Qx4lq.jpg) to show from the "rating XY or above"

                Some threads were this has been mentioned on GS:

                  If you have advanced ratings on, you can choose 7+, 8+, 9+, or 10 for both recent and random shows and movies. This gives alot better control of your favorites.

                • Issues with the search function

                  I thought I'm gonna reopen this thread as it might show up sooner or later anyways. As you mentioned you have the search limited for items with 3+ characters due to performance issues. I noticed there have been some improvements (taking the ice age / toy story examples) but this does seem to exclude TV-shows like "24", "Air", "K", "Oz", "V" etc. Any chance of getting these enabled aswell?

                  This problem has been reported in multiple instance on GS. Some examples:
                  https://getsatisfaction.com/trakt/topics/_ang_lee_is_unfoundable_in_the_searchbox_while_people_is_chosen
                  https://getsatisfaction.com/trakt/topics/ice_age_is_missing

                  Another thing is the lack of the second page when searching for something. It tells you how…

                  • Liked list should show up under the list tab

                    This was mentioned as a WIP already I belive: When liking a list they should appear in a tab on your list page (as a form of bookmarking).

                    • Choose If I want to share to Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr individually

                      Not all the post like now, If I'm watcing a show and I don't want to share it, and i'm in an App that it's using the API, it will share it automatically, I can't deactivate that for an single episode., It will be amazing if I can choose if I want to share it or not.

                      • Wrong Banner

                        The banner for the tv show Deception is still showing the previous name of "Infamous" and needs to be changed to reflect the name change.

                        This image would be the best http://thetvdb.com/banners/graphical/259087-g4.jpg

                          • Vegas (2012) link to wrong series

                            When clicking on episode (or series) titles for the 2012 show Vegas, you are sent to the corresponding link for a 1970's show of the same name. On looking at the links, they are incorrectly missing of "-2012" from "vegas".

                            For example: trakt.tv/show/vegas-2012/season/1/episode/10
                            as opposed to
                            trakt.tv/show/vegas/season/1/episode/10

                              http://trakt.tv/movie/detention-2011 shows the poster an fanart for a diffrent movie called detention (http://www.themoviedb.org/movie/108993-detention).
                              The right poster looked like this: http://cf2.imgobject.com/t/p/original/rdtJpqr1lCFbRQhH8FRFTFigGKF.jpg /
                              and for the fan art, anything from TMDB is fine.

                                    Even though on the TVdb the images are current, on 1x18 of Hey Arnold, it is not the matching image, and it seems to be off by just one episode.

                                    • Unsee an entire season or show

                                      There should be a way do deselect a whole season or show, in case of an accidental marking as "seen". Having to go through every episode to delete it isn't practical at all.
