  1. Tagging friends when checking in

    I was thinking about a function where you could (when checking in) to tag someone who's listed as one of your friends. This way would save time when two or more persons that have trakt account watch something together. I say that based on my own experience, when I'm with friends and everyone stops to check in. what would be easier if only one could do that and tagging the other. Of course, that would mean that would have to implement too some kind of mechanism where you would allow some people to tag you and later you could just…

    • Compare watched progress with another user

      Compare your watchprogress with another user (like e.g. in steam).

      Would be nice to have the possibility to compare the own progress with one (ore more) other users side-by-side.

      Like http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/3595512-compare-watchlists-with-another-user- this could increase the social process, like whatching episodes, which both are missing together and so on

      • In collection, but not seen by you or some of your friends

        Be able to figure out among friends which movie I have that nobody have seen. (Perfect when you are planing a movie night, and you are able to suggest movies people haven't seen yet)

        • better list management

          better, easier, faster list management

          - manage lists together -> list with all cool tv shows, mark some for me, my girlfriend, which we want look together
          - other users can see what items are new on the list
          - read the summary and tag it
          - better communication when lists change, notifications for "new item added", "item changed by other user", ...

            • TV listing + guide

              So I watch a lot of tv shows in one day it would be cool if u add a tv guide only for the states and canada or any other major country like that I know that if I miss an episode at 10 I could watch it at 12 I know this is a long term project and most probably get declined but it would be cool to have everything under one webdite

                • Add more achievements and badges

                  I think there should badges for such things as watching a series premier on day one, 10,000 episode watch, watching complete series, guilty pleasures, etc.

                  Way to get users better tracking their watch counts

                  • International airings and EPG data

                    Would it be possible to specify the user country, so that in the calendar we can see the airings adapted to the local channel sets?

                    For example, FOX Spain airs new episodes of top shows a week later than FOX US, due to (I think) translation and legal issues.

                    • News and articles about shows, movies, etc

                      I wonder if would be good a main page with news related to series or movies, news in general so we can use trakt for something more than just selecting what we see.. to use it like a real and trustworthy entertainment website.

                      Perhaps with a section dedicated to detect series that you've seen or are in your watchlist, so that you go there knowing that you'll read something of your interest.

                      • Share badges with Achivy.com

                        I know the badges for Trakt haven't even really launched yet, but at some point it would be really great if they could be shared to Achivy. I imagine this would just be a question of making the badges available via the Trakt API so they integrate them into Achivy, right?

                        • Show more shout/review statistics about the different Trakt users on the shout/review page

                          Maybe its an idea to show more statistics on shouts and reviews of Trakt users.

                          For example the total amount of shouts can be shown a Trakt user has made and the total amount of likes for all the shouts someone has received besides the likes on the currently displayed shout or review.

                          • Tag your collected items

                            Give us the ability to tag movies, series and episodes in our collection, using tags.

                            Tags can be marked as private, seen by friends or been public, like it's happening with lists.

                            Tags can also have their own unique custom color and can be manipulated through Trakt's API.

                            An example would be to tag some movies for their location in user's library, i.e. in HDD #3 or in BluRay #41. If someone want to do the above example now, using lists, s/he would end up having an enormous number of lists.

                            Another example would be to indicate the format (i.e.…

                            • More specific privacy controls for sections

                              Another one to get more open profiles: Let users choose what information they are showing. There have been instances where previously open lists suddenly got private etc. This would still allow users who are not too eager to show things like their collection or maybe watchlist to others to at least have something public (ex. lists).

                              • Categories for lists

                                Right now when you're looking for community lists you have to options to choose: Popular and Favorites. Since favorites are mostly good lists (of public interest), many of the other user lists are hardly worth anyone's time or a not supposed to be for the community but for their friends. Example for this: http://i.imgur.com/fZ0IF.png.
                                To ease to process of finding some lists or what you're actually looking for categories would be a big improvement. These could then be chosen when creating a list.

                                Proposed example categories:
                                - "Critics" or "Reviewers" / Lists by critics, review websites etc
                                - "Best…
