  1. 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

    • 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.

      • 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…

        • 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.

          • Progress Page On Actors/Actress Profile

            When you go onto an Actor/Actress profile there should be a progress meter similar to the TV show one where it would tell you how many of the movies you have watched of the actor. This could also include a hide watched function. For example, If I were to go onto Chris Pratt's page it would show that I have watched The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy. It would also say that I have watched 2 out of 25 things he is in. There could also be another function to filter TV Shows and Movies. Thank you.

                Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.

                This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.

              • Disable rating for movies and episodes that won't be released in a month (or longer)

                I know you declined this for *all* movies and episodes that haven't been released, because you're not sure if the release date is correct, but could you at least disable it for more distant release dates? (not including episodes with missing dates)
                If you enable rating about a month before something's released (maybe earlier if that's necessary), you should be able to know if the exact release date is correct, right?

                  Unfortunately this is still very hard to predict with earlier online premieres and different release dates around the world. I’d like to do this as well, so i’ll leave it to continue researching.

                • Add Quotes or notes to the movies or tv shows you've watched

                  I think that it would be great if you can add quotes of a movie or show you want to remember (something similar seen on seenth.at) or you just simply found something interesting and you want to write it down for yourself (similar to the notes on goodreads)

                  • Choose favorite TV show and movie

                    In profile we have "Favorite movies" and "Favorite TV shows" that show things according to the option, for example I use "Random rated 10" and shows all movies that I rated 10. Would be nice if I could choose my real favorite movie and tv show independent of my ratings.

                    ps: I'm the worst explaining things and sorry about my english I'm brazilian.

                      I'd love to see some other media forms (manga, books, video games, etc.) on the site so I can track everything in one spot.

                      • More options for sorting movies/shows

                        It would be great if more options for sorting could be added (by director, genres....) to watchlist, library, ratings and all other places where you can sort movies and shows. I use my watchlist do decide which movie/show to watch next and library/history to go through movies/shows that I have seen when I want to recommend some of those to friends or family, so those options would make it much easier. Thanks.

                            • Privacy: hide watch times

                              I've had several friends complain about Trakt that altough they like being able to see what TV Shows and Movies other friends have watched, they don't like the 'time' being displayed.

                              They have no problem inthe information showing they watched XXX on Tuesday, but they have a problem when it also says they watched at 11AM.

                              Probably because of privacy issues. Maybe then don't want friends knowing they're at home watching TV instead of working, or at 3AM watching TV.

                              I believe there are lots of strong and compelling reasons to make Times an toggle, and user can decide to…

                                Interesting idea. We’ll look into this, the main challenge is not only hiding from the website, bu also the API. The activity API specifically is largely based around timestamps of all the various actions.

                              • Check in from progress and other pages

                                I think it would be great to be able to check in or mark as watched from the progress page. Maybe icons under the Next episode name.

                                I find myself spending a lot of time on the progress page to find the next episode to watch, and it would save a lot of time if I didn't have to go to the episode page to check in.

                                • Links to previous and following movies in a movie franchise/series.

                                  Links to previous and following movies in a movie franchise/series. E.g. on the movie page for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" link to "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1". Personally I would put the links in the box containing runtime and other meta information.

                                  Concerning the source for this data I can tell you that The Movie DB have "collections" which seen to contain movie series and franchises. This data is accessible through their API similar to their movie data.

                                  When you get the movie data there is…

                                    kind of like the "neighbours" feature on last.fm, you get suggestions on who to add as a friend (people with similar tv show/movie taste to you) based on the tv shows, episodes and movies you marked as seen.

                                    • Progress for movies

                                      it collects box sets, e.g. all star trek, ice age, carry on, american pie, die hard movies

                                      and it should include not only official box sets
