  2. Tooltips for special episodes

    When you hover over "Seen" on a special's page, it should say "you've seen this special" and not "you've seen this episode". This can also apply anywhere else that says episode when it should say special.

  3. Cannot find this movie

    Trakt cannot find this movie Tokyo Park even if I search on the IMDB ID tt1783792

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1783792/

    How can I make it visible to trakt? Is this a bug in the IMDB ID system?

    We use TMDb, so you can just add the missing movies to TMDb. This helps trakt plus all the other apps that use TMDb as a data source. IMDb doesn’t offer a public API so no, we can just query them directly.

  7. Limit text length in widgets

    The movie / episode title that is added to a widget is sometimes too long top fit in the space available.

    Suggest that an ellipsis be used to shorten titles that exceed a particular length e.g.

    "A Movie Title that Is Too Long Will..."

  8. Custom Widgets

    I think it would be great to add a custom widget option for what i recently watched. I would like to use my own image and display text on it somewhere (and optionally a fanart cover as well). I think that would be a great addition for many forum users, who like to change their signatures.

    In addition if there is an option to choose more than one show i recently watched on image.

    Also i think it would be nice to have an option for more widgets like what i added in my seen list.

  9. Incorrect ClearArt Logo on Widgets

    On the clearart movie widgets I have noticed that the logo is incorrect.

    For the movie "This is 40" and "The Great Gatsby", its showing a clearart logo for "Rockers". It maybe happening for all movies that dont have a logo?

  10. Calendar ical feed for everyone

    Since matsimitsu 's traktcal script no longer works I think you should at least give access to a calendar ical feed to normal users. You could keep/make any other feeds VIP exclusive.

  11. Link to official facebook pages

    Since most popular movies and tv-series has a facebook page, I suggest that trakt links to these pages. This brings in a lot of potential.

    First of all, the users may import and export their likes between facebook and trakt.

    Also when checking in, and posting to Facebook, trakt may use the official page instead of fragmenting checkins with a separate entry which is a link back to trakt.

    If there is no way of making automatic link to official pages, i suggest that users may link/vote on the correct page.

    This isn’t possible with the facebook API. The way it works is we send an event saying you are watching something. Facebook uses the trakt page to scrape the title, year, etc and automatically uses the trakt link.

    There also isn’t an automated way to determine the pages on facebook for every show and movie. It’s not a bad idea, just not something we can automatically link to.

  12. In Connection there sould be an option: Verify each whether want to post in facebook or not?

    We might not want t publish all the ratings in the facebook or twitter. and there should be option to hide some( not all ) watched movies, even from followers and friends.

  14. Series not found though in TVDB

    Searching for TVDB ID 92121 returns a 404, though it is on thetvdb.com: http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=92121. Maybe the reason is, that there is no English entry for the series, only a German.
    The same series causes some weird entries in my watch history, by the way, since it was marked as seen in XBMC and thus created multiple 'null' entries, for example on the March 23, 2013 (https://trakt.tv/user/authmillenon/history/all/2). My workaround for now was to mark the series as unseen.

  15. Ongoing Problems scrobbling from Plex plugin

    In the last week or so, I have noticed many shows and movies are failing to scrobble, and the trakt.tv website has been unreachable. Are there bandwidth issues, or some other problem causing this? (I am using the plugin for Plex Media Server)

  16. Use DVD Order for Firefly

    The writers of the show have said that the correct order to watch is the DVD order, not the aired, the TVDB has both of them, is there any possible way for firefly specifically to use DVD order? :)

  17. Dismiss all recommendations on the page

    Please add the ability to dismiss multiple recommendations at once.
    removing one at a time is not good for your servers and not that good for my application...
    If the user dismisses all 20, he wont be able to get 20 new until your servers have handled all my 20 server calls... :\

    Thanks in advance!

  18. Autosave drafts of shouts or reviews you write

    I have seen this feature on several different forums and other web apps like for instance Gmail. The idea is simple, but very effective: make it possible to autosave your shouts and reviews every 1 or 2 minutes.

    It happened to me quite a few times that i was writing an lenghty review or shout of an movie or tv show on Trakt and something else required my attention. Once i was done with that i had completely forgotten that i was writing a review or shout here on Trakt, closed my browser and thus lost the entire post for…

  20. Tv show runtime Incorrect

    The tv show runtime on most shows is incorrect. Shows runtime should not include commercial time. For instance, shark tank episodes say 60 minutes even though they are around 42 minutes without commercials. The data being wrong doesn't bother me, but it doesn't allow me to check in to another show after the show is done. I have to wait until 20 minutes into my next show...
