  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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)

  5. 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.

  6. Track other forms of media

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. Follow People (Actors) and get notifications

    It would be great to follow or like people (actors), so trakt can notify me about new movies of this person or use this information to recommend movies with actors I like/follow

  9. Add a "watched up to this" button

    Add Seen up to this episode/season button, please, it is a core feature IMHO.

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. Find users with similar tastes and a high compatibility rating

    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.

  14. Private messaging

    Sometimes I want to exchange ideas with a user and can not. You could also put a message box or a small part "hidden" so that we can communicate. How about?
    So it would be easier to make friends and ask for opinions! :-)

    (Sorry for bad english)

  15. 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

  17. metadata bulk changes

    I hope I am not just missing such a thing .... but I was looking at the options of adding metadata to entities. I have a large collection, and going in to each one of them individually is just not something I would take the time to do. Are there options to select multiple entities and do a bulk apply of a set of metadata? I do see the ability to change each individual entity

  18. Horizontal cast list is unwieldy

    The horizonal cast list has some issues worth mentioning:

    1. Captions are very small and often abbreviated, requiring mouseover;
    2. Emphasis on pictures makes it look nice, but trying to find someone by name or character name can take more time than necessary if the cast is extensive;
    3. Horizontal scrolling on mobile can be problematic (more often than not the touch sensor registers the slight vertical move of a finger and starts vertical scroll instead of horizontal), and even on desktop clicking and dragging the scrollbar is clunky compared to using the scroll wheel.

    I'd much prefer it to…

  19. Only collected shows in progress page

    I think it would be great if there was an additional filter for collected/uncollected shows in progress (watched) page. For example some show has 5 seasons but in my country I only have 3 - if i could mark "show only collected" then after watching these 3 seasons that show would disappear from my progress - until i'll collect more seasons...

  20. Reset Progress from Show page

    Hi

    I like the new reset progress feature however can you add a way to reset a show progress from it's show page. it's kind of a pain having to trawl through the progress page to find a show to rest the progress

    Thanks
