  1. Most Watched TV Show

    On the profile page, the section titled:
    MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
    Is, or can be, a bit misleading. Example of what I mean:
    TV Show 1 (TV1) has 150 episodes
    TV Show 2 (TV2) has 20 episodes

    Now, I watch TV1 in its entirety, so that is 150 watches. Now I watch TV2, all episodes, 5 times. That is 100 watches. Now, the section titled most watched... will say that TV1 is most watched. Now TV1 has the most watches, because it has the most episodes, but really TV2 is the most watched as it has been watched 5 times…

  2. Mutually Exclusive Lists

    Allow certain personal lists to be marked as mutually exclusive, meaning that if i add an item to such a list, it should automatically be removed from any other mutually exclusive list.

  3. Most Watched boxes customizable

    During my childhood I watched many animes such as Dragon Ball Z.
    If I check-in the seasons the TV Show becomes my most watched TV Show by far.
    Therefore this will never change since it has over 200 episodes and no new TV Shows today will have that much (I think)
    I would like to be able to add this TV Show in my watched list but don't think having it as my most watched TV show is really relevant.
    This applies for movies too.

    Suggestions

    - Allow in settings profile section to choose if Most Watched boxes should refer…

  5. Movie language matching with "original title"

    After coming by this too often:
    Please rely on the original title language from TMDB only as a fallback. It's wrong on tons of foreign movies due to the fact that the field was added just over a year ago.

    I would take the language field as the default and only if multiple languages are found do a comparison with the "original title". Wouldn't hurt to display all of them anyways though ;).

  7. private profile public list

    I have a private profile, but would like to make one of my lists public.

    At the moment this doesn't seem to be possible. (Searches for the name of the list, already set to Public, does not return any results. If I go directly to the link of the list when logged out, what shows up is a message that the user is private, and not the public list.)

  8. Add personal status to shows via the progress page.

    I would be really cool if users can mark/flag their shows manually, for example:

    Watching - If the user is actively watching it.
    Renewed - If the user has caught up and the shows is on break.
    Airing - If the user has caught up and the show is airing.
    Hiatus - If the user has caught up and the show is on midseason break or something like that.
    On-Hold - If the user has paused watching the show but hasn't dropped it.
    Dropped - If the user doesn't intend to watch any-more.
    Re-watching - If the user is re-watching…

  9. Show a chart of the ratings per episode for every season/entire series so that you can see if the show getts better/getts worse.

    It would be cool so see that the first season of a show is better then the last one. Maybe you saw the last episode aired on your tv, thought is had a reasonably interesting concept, but not good enough to want too keep watching. Then you could see if the first season got different ratings and realize; "Maybe it's worth watching after all!"

    I think a graph would give it a better look, and make it easier to understand and read.

  10. Add TMDB as an alternative to pull TV data

    I've been using trakt a lot, I have a lot of different shows on my progress list, and recently I have started to notice that TVDB has some stupid rules, and don't allow certain shows to be added.

    I propose that there should be a way for a specific show to pull its data from TMDB instead, that doesn't have those stupid rules, I don't know how hard that would be to implement, but since the website already pulls the data for movies from TMDB, I hope not a lot.
    In last resort case, there should be a way to…

  11. Create hide field to remove tv seasons which have finished but haven't ended.

    I like to binge watch tv shows but I hate watching halfway through a season and realizing that it hasn't finished. The idea is to hide seasons/tv shows off of the progress page which haven't finished airing for the season.

    We usually don’t enough data to know that a season is still in progress or not. Usually episodes are added to the season as it progresses and not all up front. I’ll move this to researching so we can look into later if we get more accurate data.

  12. Friends watched or followings watched ?

    If I follow someone who's profile is not private,

    I would be happy to see if he watched a movie/episode when you go on the movie/episode's page.
    This only works if you're friends. But since the profile is public, I could go and check it manually. Which is a bit a waste of a time.
    My point is it should be
    Followings with public profil as minimal requirement to see it on those pages.

    | 357 watching now | 2 followings watched | Rated by 1 following |

    I assume here that ratings are available if profile is public

  13. Lock lists

    Allowing lists to be "locked". So a movie can't be added or removed from the film page. It can be annoying when a list is "complete" (ex. a film festival or the Top X from year Y) and by mistake I add a movie who has nothing to do in this list because I clicked the wrong one. It hold no sense to propose me to add the movie to a list when the list is "locked" or "finished"

  14. Graphically present timeline of watched/collected episodes

    I think it would be cool and useful if the progress bars in the watched/collected screens was filled by what episodes you've seen, so that if there's a 3 season show, and you've seen season two, the 33% of the bar filled would be in the middle of the progress bar. Gives a nice one-look view of whether you are missing any of the latest episodes.

    For a graphical representation, see https://www.dropbox.com/s/j5wdnn22x58c9w1/trakt-idea.jpg?dl=0

  15. use yours and a friends profile to find movies none of you have seen

    Wouldnt it be awesome when trying to find movies to watch

    1. pick friend/s to watch with
    2. press a ''lets watch a movie button''
    3. get a list of all the movies none of you have seen, with various ways of filtering it of course

    this kind of goes towards having a more social and interacting Trakt, and a easy way to sell in trakt to your friends

  16. "Trash" for recently removed plays

    Having just had an app delete an old play from last year when I thought I was adding a new one, I see a need for a "trash" where old plays go when removed for some time (14 days? 30?) before being permanently removed from the database. Often I can extrapolate the time of an accidentally removed play from surrounding episodes of the same show, but in this case that isn't possible.

    I don't know if it's worth adding to the API, though.

  17. A options that you could subscribe or un subscribe from a show

    For example: if i watch one or two episodes it doesn't necessarily mean i want to continue to watch the show. therefore if you want, you can subscribe to it or dont, so it would show in my progress page and in my calendar

  18. Group episodes of a show that are marked as watched simultaneously on the history page

    Marking a season of a show, or the whole show itself, as watched will display each of the show's episode on the history page. Imagine that on a show with 200 episode that you had watched previously, for example. You mark this show as watched and then you check your history. You'll have to navigate through a lot of pages that display the show's episodes and it's kind of an unpleasant experience, especially when you want to review your watched history.

  19. On Deck always shows latest episode of series to check into not last marked episode

    I honestly don't even know if I'm describing this correctly but I shall try. I don't always watch shows from the first episode, especially if watching on TV. For the past month, when I check into a show that I have watched previously, if I check into an episode that aired BEFORE the episode I just checked into, it always shows the episode AFTER the one I checked into long before.

    For example: I checked into The Andy Griffith Show episode 8x24 then started watching the show again from Season 1 and checked into episode 1x01 but my Recently Watched…

  20. Get notifications from followed friends

    When I follow a friend is because I want to know what they watch.
    I can go thought the network and find out but it would be nice to have some sort of notification system like facebook that shows what have your friends watched recently that we don't know about.
