  1. Season Posters

    I think there should be system so we can upload and vote for seasons posters or movie posters, for "perfect" customization. Maybe a vote system once a week for VIPs or all users? Mainly i have 3 matching posters for 3 seasons for Fargo. A harmony in all banners and posters would be "great!" interface for Trakt.tv!

    • Dashboard up next to watch little bug

      Hi,

      There's a little bug in the count progress of the up next to watch (i'm on GMT +1). I'm pretty sure it's related to the time zone has I know it will display the good progress later in the day.
      http://imgur.com/Ruj9tXu (it should be 17/18)

      By the way, there's also something that bothers me a bit :
      I have "Tomorrow" as upcoming start day for "Upcoming schedule" and there's always a time gap (i'm not sure exactly how much time) between when the show disappears from the upcoming schedule and it appears in the up next to watch part.

      • Non-blurred Titles right after Login

        I enabled the "blur titles" feature for shows and have been using it for a while. When I relogged in to my account after a cache cleaning, titles were not blurred on my dashboard. Refreshing the page solved the issue but just wanted to mention it.

        • emoji support in About profile text

          Adding emoji in your user bio currently causes a 500 error on save. Plain text symbols (including non-English characters) work a-okay, but not emoji. If no support is planned, a message in the Account page such as “no markdown, HTML, or emoji allowed” would be helpful so users aren’t confused why updates aren’t saving.

          Thank you!

          • English > No language

            If an English translated poster is available on TVDB it should be at a higher priority than something classified as "no language" on TMDB.

            • Secondary Sort of Progress or Other Areas

              We use most episodes left as the sorting method for watched progress. When the same amount of episodes are left there doesn't seem to be an order those are sorted by. The main issue comes when shows are 100% completed. It would be nice if they could be sorted by some sort of method at that point. Specifically I would like them to be ordered by the ones with the soonest next episode air date and the ended shows in the way back. I hope this all makes enough sense.

              • Adjust "up next" episodes to be selected as earliest unwatched episode for people skipping around a series.

                TL;DR: If I've viewed some episodes from season 1 and some from season 7, let me choose my "next episode" to default to the earliest unwatched episode (season 1) rather than the current default of the latest (season 7).

                Shows without a plot (i.e. documentaries, sketch shows, etc.) are quite often watched out of order. For example, here's my viewing of ESPN's 30 for 30 series.

                http://i.imgur.com/6N8GzKW.png

                As you can see episode 3x03 is "up next" but I still have quite a few episodes before it in season 1 and 2 to watch. The true "next" episode for me to…

                • Synchronize with iTunes and iOS watched status

                  I watch movies and series episodes on my Mac or iPhone, and would really like to sync my watched statuses to Trakt.

                  • Add a custom filter to progress page

                    I personally watch 40-50% of my shows with my other half, and would love to mark shows as such so I can filter to shows only I am watching on the progress page.

                    • Sensitive touch screen

                      When using a touch screen, the trakt website in general is too sensitive for scrolling/ navigating. We have to pay close attention to where we put our fingers and how to scroll.

                      Example: When swiping my finger up to scroll down, suddenly trakt is loading the page for the movie I saw yesterday. Or when I scroll through the movie section, suddenly I've added a random movie to my watchlist; sometimes I don't even notice until afterwards.

                      Thought at first this was a performance issue, and it very well might be, but this is seen on iPad, iPhone, android phone…

                      • Add Windows Store to List of Supported "Watch Now" Sources

                        You have a great list of sources for the "Watch Now" functionality but the Windows Store never seems to show which leads me to believe it's not supported. The prices are basically the same from from the other sources, but since I get points for purchases on the Windows Store, it would be great to have this listed as well.

                        • Fade/Hide watchlisted in lists

                          Add the possibility to fade/hide watchlisted elements in a list, for example if I want to filter out already watched and in watchlist to keep only movies not watched or in the waiting list.
                          The reverse could also be nice to compare the watchlisted elements in common between other users and I.

                          • Make 'Data refresh' available for everyone (improves it for everyone ;)

                            Hi,

                            so I changed some shows in TMDB. I guess I could now manually refresh it in trakt. Wouldn't it make sense to allow this for everyone? Currently, I would have to inform you (or support) and they do it manually... if you could just tell all wrong show info complainers to go to TMDB, fix it and they just hit refresh when done, you will never have to fix something manually ;)

                            thanks,
                            chris

                            • Split time watched across days

                              Over the last few months, I noticed that I've become really obsessed with finishing watching things before midnight local time to avoid messing up my dashboard graph with stats that appear on the "wrong day".

                              It occurred to me tonight, after yet another movie finished just after midnight, that actually, software can solve this problem.

                              I propose that Trakt take the timestamp and duration of each item played into account when generating graphs, such that if (as happened tonight) I finish a 126-minute movie at 0:03, 123 of those minutes still appear in the graph for the previous day, and…

                              • Add Season Finales Date

                                Hello,

                                Everyone knows it would be extremely helpful if trakt highlighted the season finale episode. However, I understand you don't have where from to get this information automatically.

                                I found this page on sidereel of a calendar with it, but I don't know if you can collect it easily. Anyway, http://www.sidereel.com/tv-premieres-finales-calendar

                                Good luck.
                                Keep up the good work!

                                • See aggregated friends ratings / activities / collections

                                  It would be great if /network section would not (only) be a list of people in your network, but an aggregation of activities of everyone in your network.
                                  To be able to see what my friends have been up to, find what they have rated highly (find recommendations). Going to each friends /history/ page is not nearly as fun for that ;)

                                  Alternatively perhaps in search filter in addition to "RATED" filter there can be "FRIENDS RATED" filter to achieve a similar result.

                                  • widgets for most watched movies, most popular shows, top box office.

                                    I don't need widgets to see what I've collected or watched, show me stuff I may want to watch, what is popular, new, etc. Those are widgets I'd use.

                                    • hide show for a period of time

                                      I would like to be able to hide a show for a certain period of time in the up next to watch section.
                                      For example, I watch Doctor Who and Game of Thrones with my sister who I only see once a month. So having the option to hide it for a month or until a certain date (maybe using the same code from the 'add to history - watched on a certian date' would be nice.

                                        • scrolling bug

                                          on any part of the site it is not possible to scroll the left frame/navigation panel.
                                          examples: i have many saved filters, to be able to select the last one i need to scroll the movies all the way to the end until also the left side scrolls.
                                          or
                                          when on any movie detail site you have to scroll movie description and comments all the way to the end befor you can see the info in the left frame of the site.

                                            Yeah, this is how the sidenav locking plugin we have currently works. It also depends on your vertical resolution. One idea I have is making the individual sidenav sections collapsable to help reduce the height.

                                          • Don't see your idea?
