  1. Filter idea and a serach bar in within rating/collection section

    When in your ratings page, instead of fading your lets say collected movies they should just disappear completely and only show the once that you haven't collected ... A mini search bar within your ratings and collection page would also be really helpful in quickly finding out if you have rated or collected a curtain movie/show.

    • View ended shows in a list

      It's nice that there is a way to hide ended shows but it would be nice if there was also a way to view only ended shows in a list.

      • People's Pages - Show's Years

        I would like to see one thing added to people's pages.

        If they worked in a show, I think that description could have year wich started, and wich ended (if available). For example: 2008 - 2013

        Also, in show's summary pages, this was available, did you remove it? Will you put it again?

        • "Trash" for recently removed plays

          Having just had an app delete an old play from last year when I thought I was adding a new one, I see a need for a "trash" where old plays go when removed for some time (14 days? 30?) before being permanently removed from the database. Often I can extrapolate the time of an accidentally removed play from surrounding episodes of the same show, but in this case that isn't possible.

          I don't know if it's worth adding to the API, though.

          • Add setting option to disallow marking episodes/movies as watched multiple times

            I've been using Trakt for a little while and find it super cool. There are many plugins and it really helped me to automate the tracking of what I've watched.

            But I personally don't care about the number of times I have watched a given tv show episode/movie (nor even the when). The only thing that matters to me is to know whether I've seen something.

            It actually bugs me a lot to see something like "8,332 episodes (8,334 plays of 97 shows)"

            Some time ago I synced a Plex server with Trakt and it marked everyhting as watched again.…

            • Allow to choose episode order (aired or dvd)

              It probably doesn't effect a lot of series but there are a few where the dvd episode order is different to the order when they were first aired (Firefly is a prime example).

              It would be nice to be able to choose which order I prefer (tvdb has both)

              • Add reviews for an episode

                I like to read reviews from The A.V Club and/or IGN of an episode after I watched it. So I would like to know if it's possible to add links to the reviews of the episode because I know it might be difficult to acquire the reviews automatically and not all shows have reviews but it would be a cool feature if it was available thank you.

                • Group episodes in season dumps in calendar

                  Netflix and other platforms are starting to premiere seasons all at once, making the calendar (I have the grid view) really long. I think that if 3 or more episodes premiere on the same day you should do like a stack, saying that season X premieres, or that episodes 14 to 26 premiere or something like that.

                  So you get an idea of the problem: http://i.imgur.com/Cao7wOJ.jpg

                  Thank you :)

                    Hi,
                    It would be nice to add a button to share our statistics (watched movies and watched TV shows) on Twitter/Facebook.
                    Thank you.

                    • Trending and friends by location

                      Would be nice to be able to filter the trending movies and shows by location (country,region,city), and also to find friends nearby

                      i live in italy and i have no idea how many people use trakt.

                      another thing could be importing imdb trending.. (maybe you already do that), and box office data

                      • Anticipated TV shows (add trailer icon)

                        Hi,

                        Thanks for having updated the anticipated items with Network and start date.
                        I think if there is a trailer associated to the show it would be great to see it with a little icon. It does not necessarily need to be a video link to the trailer.

                        • Web App / Offline Support

                          Today browsers are getting more and more features to really feel like normal apps.
                          One of the really exciting new features are Service Workers. They basically allow the caching of content locally which means that the website can even be opened without an internet connection (and loading the website in general would be faster and save bandwidth).
                          Along with some other features (like Push Notifications) the trakt.tv website could feel like a normal application.

                          I guess it would be good to go in this direction because it's easier to enhance the website instead of writing 2 completely new native Android…

                            I want to be able to see all the shows/movies I've watched, at a glance, in a simple vertical list, rather than in a large grid. The vertical list should be sortable by title, date started, date completed, number of episodes watched, etc.

                            • Add Plot Keywords. User can thumbs up if agree. Info taken from www.themoviedb.org

                              On TV Show/ Movie information pages you can add a list of Plot Keywords. For Example: post-apocalyptic , superhero , future .
                              This information should be available from www.themoviedb.org

                              I would think it would be cool to also add a user thumbs up for each keyword on the info page. So the users can decide which keywords fit the best from themoviedb list. You can then show the more favored ones differently then less thumbed up ones.

                              • Users can add recommendations on a movie/show page -along with a comment-

                                Like the way MyAnimeList.net does. people can post recommendations and appear in the movie/serie page like the comments does.. the recommendations with more likes show up first.

                                this can replace the actual recommendations system, which, obviously suck.

                                • Edit watched status by date (in case of client glitch)

                                  A misbehaving client can quickly mark thousands of movies or episodes as marked, incorrectly. To undo this takes considerable manual time. Since an error like this occurs quickly at once, there should be an option to unwatch everything watched on a specific date. This would allow a quick and easy solution for a major issue.

                                  (In this case, I believe a dog sat on my keyboard. By hitting "W", it marked hundreds of movies as watched, wrongly.)

                                  • Delete history from a specific date

                                    I recently had an error (probably a problem with an app) and during a single day, my episode play count for all my shows doubled/tripled! I know you can remove the watched statuses one by one, but as I now have thousands of watches in one day, that is just impossible! Also, removing the watched for the entire show is just as absurd! Is there a way to remove all of your plays/watches of a specific date (say Feb 20), so I won't have these extra watches messing up my record? If there isn't, is there a way to implement…

                                    • Filter History by month

                                      It would be awesome if you could restore the functionality to filter the history page by month and get an overview of how many episodes and movies I watched during that month.

                                      • [suggestion][bug] Adding New shows to watchlist as a "TV show" instad of "1st episode"

                                        Under calendar, when you go to "All / New Shows" and you click add to watchlist, only specific episode is added to watchlist.

                                        Suggestion: Add whole "TV show" to watch list instead of episode only.
                                        Else please change "All / New Shows" to "All / New Episodes". It is misleading.

                                        Bug: Also in current state under new TV shows, added series episodes do not show up under "My / TV Shows", i.e. on your calendar.

                                        • Customized statistics for time spent watching

                                          Like how many hours spent watching in a specific year, month, time frame aside from the existing statistics for the present week and total time spent watching.
