  1. Differentiate between ep, season and show

    In collection (trakt.tv/users/user/collection), maybe the overview would be better if it automatically shows a tv- series as one season if all episodes in said season has been collected. Same if all seasons in one series have been collected.

    As it is right now, it will show every episode (in All Types). The episodes clutter the view;

    If I own a DVD with season 1 of Breaking Bad, I do not want this listed as seven individual units, but rather one unit, because it is one season on one DVD.

  2. Allow users to add any show they want to the 'on deck to watch' category

    For example if I'm watching a show that I have previously watched, it won't show up on my 'on deck to watch', but if there was an option to allow users to add any show they want onto the 'on deck to watch' category it would be better and more convenient for us.

  3. Add bunch of movies to a list

    I'd like to check how many movies I watched for an actor.
    So I serached the actor and found his fimography.
    But I can't filter those movies by watched or listed or collected like I do for a list, so I thought I could create a dummy list and add all his movies to it, but there is no fast method to do that. The only way is to add every single movie to the list, but for some prolific actors it could last forever.

  4. A check-in in Facebook should be synced with Trakt

    Problem: Have to redundantly check-in to Facebook and Trakt while watching a movies in theatres. Also Accessing Trakt through mobile is not so friendly

    Solution: Connect the FB account to Trakt. Read status so that while someone is "Watching" something you can check-in the same movie into Trakt and Scrobble it

  5. aditional discover functinality based on unpopular shows/movies with great ratings

    like trakt.tv/shows/popular but for unpopular shows and movies

    ps.: i would also love to have newly premiered and returned instead of having only anticipated

    pps.: it would also not be bad to have api support for more kinds of sorting :D

  6. Let us choose if we saw the 'regular version' or the Director's Cut of a movie.

    There are movies where the Directors Cut signifcantly changes the movie. Sometimes I saw both versions, sometimes only the DC. I'd like to add which one I saw.

  7. Clone confirmation

    Ask for confirmation before just cloning a list and maybe add the option to set the typical list settings like privacy, title, etc.

  8. Tokusatsu series need HUGE amounts of cleanup

    Tokusatsu TV shows like Super Sentai (and the American adaptation, Power Rangers), Kamen Rider, and Ultraman are currently a HUGE mess on Trakt. From TVDB, they have season entries for each series under the main entry. There are also individual shows split out from these that have separate entries, likely imported from TMDB (some deleted at the source).

    I simply can't take the time to go through and list all of them—there are 20+ seasons of EACH that I'd need to look for, and I don't know the franchises that well. But they do need attention. I'd wager money on…

  9. Updating cloned lists

    When the original source for a cloned list is updated, maybe there could be an indication/way to update the cloned list (ie, pulling the new items added).

  10. International Movie Release Dates

    Though "My Movies" calendar is a great feature I can't make full use of it because not every film is released in the US and internationally on the same day. Now comes the hard part, because I don't know if you can do this, but it would be great and very useful if we could choose which country's release date we want to appear on the calendar, that way we would always know when we can actually go see the movie (anywhere and everywhere).

  11. Create hide field to remove tv seasons which have finished but haven't ended.

    I like to binge watch tv shows but I hate watching halfway through a season and realizing that it hasn't finished. The idea is to hide seasons/tv shows off of the progress page which haven't finished airing for the season.

    We usually don’t enough data to know that a season is still in progress or not. Usually episodes are added to the season as it progresses and not all up front. I’ll move this to researching so we can look into later if we get more accurate data.

  12. Link comment to item in lists

    This would enable us to add a comment on for example why we added item X to list Y and then remove the comment when X is removed from Y. This would prove useful especially in watchlists.

    It could also be useful in list of films/series we don't want to see where people could comment on an item and present arguments on why one should see/would enjoy this particular item.

    I'm sure people would find other ways to use this

  13. Actor & Crew for TV shows on season or episode level

    Via TMDB I can enter actors and crew on season and episode level. Via trakt I can only see the actors from the latest season.

    This means that I cannot search on actors / crew that has participated to an episode or season of a TV show (except if they participated in the latest season).

    This is inaccurate. For example: You have a TV show with a main character during 9 of the 10 seasons. Because the main character is replaced during the latest season, this actor is not displayed via Trakt (because Trakt only displays actors from the latest…

  14. History & Ratings: View All / Infinite Scroll vs. listing in pages

    When looking through my History and Ratings pages, I'd really love to be able to see the full lists on one scrollable page. It would make for a nicer UX and visualization of the data as well as allow one to use their browser's Find function to jump to any given movie in the whole list.

    Thanks for considering!

  15. movie poster when tumblr share

    is there an option for tumblr post to be movie poster instead of movie still from the header when using tumblr share. for tv shows it's ok for it to be a still from an episode but for movies it makes more sense for it to be it's poster. thanks

  16. Calendar item - additional link to redirect directly to it's homepage

    Hi!

    Could you please add link to items on the calendar grid, so that it redirects you directly to hompage of of TV series instead of to the specific episode?

    Maybe make it so, that clicking on the item's image redirects you to homepage and clicking on the text below the item (for instance "s01e01 blabla") stays the same - redirects you to specific episode webpage.

    If this contradicts majority of users, please consider making it as an option.

    Peter

  17. user created polling/voting

    allow users to create various polls for shows/seasons/episodes, and actors.

    example:
    Who will die next (game of thrones)
    which character is the funniest/smartest/hottest?
    Will Team Rocket sucessfully steal Pikachu next episode?
    will next season reveal that x character is dead or alive?
    do you like the replacement actor, for character x? yes/no

    I think these polls would create more user interaction.
    and the more popular polls would be shifted towards the top of the page for easier access.

  18. Grouping movies into sets for your collection and list's

    Sort your movies into sets for better organization. Movies sets are for sequels or movies that are otherwise apart of a directly related series.

    Kodi does it here: http://kodi.wiki/view/Movie_sets.

  19. Profile page top

    The top of the profile page, just under the top toolbar, is very large. On some displays, this is so large it takes up nearly the whole screen and what it displays is mostly useless. Either eliminating it, shrinking it, or having it customization by the user would be great. This is referenced as viewed from a laptop screen at 1280x768, the top portion takes up 3/4 of the screen.

  20. Making groups for sharing Ratings, Collections, Comments etc

    Hi,

    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...

    Thanks.
