  1. Show friend ratings on the episode summary page

    We've got friends' ratings of movies and TV shows, so why don't you get back ratings of episodes? It would be very useful

  5. Update API: show community rating of next_episode in user/progress/watched

    Show community rating of next_episode in user/progress/watched API, so show/episode/summary doesn't have to be loaded.

  6. Alyce Kills (2013) cannot be deleted from my collection

    The movie "Alyce Kills (2013)" is stuck in my collection. I delete it, but as soon as i refresh the page it shows up again.

    Also, the cast and crew listed are actually from "Chopper (2000)" imdb id: tt0221073

  7. + view details

    Would be cool if "+ view details" would turn into "- view details" when clicked. That's a nice touch and not much to code.

  9. Use ETAGs to reduce API data that hasn't changed

    Right now applications need to frequently call and download all the information regarding Shows/Episodes etc to make sure they have the latest into. if you return proper last modified dates inside headers apps could just request the header and skip downloading the data if there has not been any changes.

    This should both make apps faster and efficient and also reduce load on your servers and reduce your bandwidth usage.

    I updated some things for facebook. Can you try one more time disconnecting, then reconnecting facebook on trakt? What I do now is fully remove the app from facebook so that it will do a clean reconnect. I’m hoping that fixes the issue. I also added error detection, so it will display a red message on your dashboard if it detects an issue with Facebook.

  12. Easier Ratings

    Just like you have the seen, add to collection, add to playlist hover buttons, can you add a rating icon so you don't have to go into the show to do it?

  13. Air day only displaying a "s" on the show summary

    It's probably just a typo in the code, but on every show page an unnecessary character ("s") is shown.

    e.g. Airs s at 23:00 on Comedy Central

  14. Mobile website

    I know, there are enough mobile apps out there but there are at least as many reasons, why trakt needs a mobile page.
    For example there are a lot more types of mobile devices, that don't have an app for their OS like the sony PSP or the old mobile phones
    and also the newer devices don't support the new software anymore, like iPod touch 3G that can't go higher than iOS 5 and so new apps won't be able to be installed. i use the trakt web interface on my ipod but it is very slow but with a…

  15. API method to get user's checkins for a single show

    An API method to get a single user's checkins limited for a single show.
    Like 'activity/user', but with the ability to filter for a show only (identified by tvdb_id, for example).

  16. Slug for series that start with a number

    Via the API I am unable to access 2 Broke Girls via its slug of '2-broke-girls' that instead loads, 'America 2Night', my guess this is because using just a 2 instead of the slug gives me the same result.

    30-rock does not have this issue, but there is no show with an ID of 30 by the looks of it either.

    Are you able to restrict treating the value as an ID if its a slug (contains more then just numbers, or contains a dash)? I realize this probably allows you to use the IMDB ID as well, but those…

  17. Replace/Fix & with ampersand (&) in descriptions and titles.

    Replace/Fix & with ampersand (&) in descriptions and titles. The easiest way to find these occurrences are through this Google search: https://www.google.se/search?q=%22%26amp%3B%22+site:trakt.tv ("&" site:trakt.tv). "About 49,900 results", so this is probably something that should be automated.

  20. First Aired - Incorrect for Unaired Shows

    When getting episode information from the API via show/summary with the extended option, the first aired fields show dates for episodes that haven't aired yet and don't actually have air date information.

    For example: Banshee

    TheTVDB API returns an empty FirstAired element for Season 2 Episode 1, whereas the trakt API returns these values:

    "first_aired": 21600,
    "first_aired_iso": "1969-12-31T22:00:00-06:00",
    "first_aired_utc": 43200,

    Seems its getting set to a default value instead of being left blank. Would love to see these either left out of the json sent to the client, set to null or left blank as I'll be able to handle…

    This fix will go out tonight. If not aired, it will return data like this:

    “first_aired”: 0,
    “first_aired_iso”: null,
    “first_aired_utc”: 0,

    Before the utc and iso were added, it would have just sent back a 0 for first_aired, so I went with that.
