    • iPhone search bar

      When clicking the search icon on the mobile website (Safari iOS) the search bar shows, but the keyboard does not automatically pop up. You then have to start the tedious process of trying to click on the search bar in order to actually type something.

      Tested this on android: no problem, the keyboard Even pops up at once when the search icon is clicked.

      • Allow user to manually set time/channel for stuff on their watchlist, when it's incorrect for them

        For example, Doctor Who airs on BBC One in the UK and then about 5.5 hours later on BBC America in the US. I get that you guys aren't like an actual TV guide service, but it'd be nice to let US users manually change the air time and channel for a show and save it just for their user. Right now, it tells me new episodes air at 2:30pm for me on BBC One because you don't have any data for when BBC America airs the new episodes. It'd be nice to somehow change this on my personal calendar…

        • RE: Option to hide adult movies from search and site overall

          I've already opened a ticket about this (closed now) but if we're gonna just do it manually then it's going to be quite the long list. So here's what I'm suggesting...

          Since the issue here is TMDb's definiton of what constitutes an 'adult movie' (most of Tinto Brass' filmography is not marked as such, while most people would describe his movies as "porn but, like... with dialogue") a middle ground can be found in the tags of these movies (which makes them appear in the recommendation sections and search). So while, say, Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens is not…

          • Alexa app needs an update

            I use the Alexa skill for Trakt TV, but the skill does not recognize the following utterances:
            * This week, when was Emerald City on?
            * Did I miss Emerald city this week?
            * When is Emerald City on? (she replies with "I didn't catch the date")
            * Was Emerald city on this week? (Your calendar has the following two shows on Sunday ... <neither of them is Emerald City)

            The skill is obviously not cuing in on the show slot.
            *

              Hey Ron

              Currently the Alexa app doesnt support this type of behavior.

              All of the current utterances are based around the calendar and what’s on a certain day. In the case of movies, I have it list the entire week since there are far fewer movies than television shows on in a given week.

              Eventually we’d like to move towards the behavior you are suggesting, but I’ve had really terrible results when trying to have it recognize free form slots of variable length like that. I’m currently trying to get back through the cert process with the UK english language support for the current features.

            • Season Finale Alert (IT IS POSSIBLE)

              I believe there is some data available that could be used to detect at least a "Possible Season Finale" and send that notification out to users that want this feature. You could label it a BETA FEATURE and you could even crowdsource it (have users confirm it is a season finale). Even if you send the notification out, two weeks after the season finale happened, it is still useful information to me and to many other users that like binge-watching seasons. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

              • Sort all episodes by release date

                I would like it if all TV Shows in a list could be combined to where all of the episodes of all the shows were in one list and I could sort by release date.

                • List display

                  Would be nice to have different displays for lists, similar to file explorers:
                  - the actual one (thumbnail, title, rating...)
                  - details by columns: title of the movie, director, rating... (NO image)
                  - only titles

                  • Share rating on facebook

                    Right now we can choose in share options if we want the rating published on social networks.
                    It would be great if we could decide, in the moment we rate, if that rating will be posted or not.

                    • Show awards (and maybe nominations) on films / shows / profiles

                      It could for example be shown by a logo associated with the "competition" in color when won and in gray-scale when only nominated. A caption would be shown with the details (best actor, etc) when hovering. The logo would be on the film or show when on a profile, with a count at the top of the page. When on a film/show it would be either at the top when for the whole show or on specific actor/season.

                        When someone with a private profile follows you their recent activity is included in the email notification. Since it's hidden elsewhere it's probably not intended.

                        • standalone movie or Sherlock special or both ?

                          Justin Nemeth (Founder, trakt) commented · December 16, 2016 19:17
                          I fixe the 1st and 3rd, need to figure out the sherlock one since it has so many plays on it. It's somewhat of a "special" case since its not a normal episode of the show and does truly seem like a standalone movie.

                            Keeping as both for now. It’s weird since this is actually a movie so I think it makes sense there. TVDB allows movies to be added as specials under the show which is why it is there too.

                            We’ll have to figure out a set of “rules” in the future for this type of scenario.

                          • Summary number details

                            Not sure if they're still on the map but the summary numbers are now one of the last things missing from their counterpart on trakt V1 (watched, ratings, collected, plays, etc.). Any plans to make them browseable? It would be a welcome addition even if it is cached (to extend on the social part).
                            I can imagine this to be problematic for the popular items with multiple thousands but maybe this can be limited to a X number of recent people or have a pagination. A breakdown of the ratings would also be great.

                            • Create parent shows

                              It would be great to have a parent show that includes all seasons and episodes of its children shows.

                              For example a CSI parent show that would have all episodes for CSI Las Vegas, Miami and New York under one chronological list. I see all theses shows as one and would like to know what the next chronological episode is, and how many episodes are left in the group. Other examples would be NCIS, NCIS LA, NCIS NO, and The CW D.C., Arrow, Flash Super Gil, Etc.

                              • Making network groups

                                Making network groups for sharing Ratings, Collections, Comments etc

                                My idea in general is to add an option for making public/private groups. On these groups there we will be this features:
                                - Share each member's rating, see the average rating between all the members and compare it to the general ratings.
                                - Share statistics.
                                - Private discussion for each movie/tv show, only between the members.
                                - Share recommendations.
                                - See each member collection.
                                - See "people watching now" only from the member of the group.
                                etc...
                                * Join members, Admin could confirm new members

                                • Mutually Exclusive Lists

                                  Allow certain personal lists to be marked as mutually exclusive, meaning that if i add an item to such a list, it should automatically be removed from any other mutually exclusive list.

                                  • Lists Intersections

                                    Hello,
                                    I would find it very useful if I could hide shows/movies which are (or are not) on other of my lists.
                                    For example, I have an "Oscar Race" list with all of the contenders for the Oscars 2017, and once the nominations are announced I could quickly check which ones did or didn't make the cut, just by choosing to hide the ones which were on the actual "Oscars 2017" list.
                                    This would also be helpful for someone who has lists based on mood, and could see in the "Feel-good" list which are also on the "Network Television" list…

                                    • Most Watched TV Show

                                      On the profile page, the section titled:
                                      MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
                                      Is, or can be, a bit misleading. Example of what I mean:
                                      TV Show 1 (TV1) has 150 episodes
                                      TV Show 2 (TV2) has 20 episodes

                                      Now, I watch TV1 in its entirety, so that is 150 watches. Now I watch TV2, all episodes, 5 times. That is 100 watches. Now, the section titled most watched... will say that TV1 is most watched. Now TV1 has the most watches, because it has the most episodes, but really TV2 is the most watched as it has been watched 5 times…

                                      • Futurama wrong episode pictures

                                        The Movie Database has the episodes listed in a different order to here, so all the episode pictures from season two onwards are wrong. The episode descriptions and titles seem to be correct, though.
