  1. Improvements on TV shows/anime

    Currently no Creator credits get imported from TMDB. Imho it would be great if those were added to all TV shows and for shows flagged as "anime" to also include the production companies (since they carry a lot of weight in regards to filtering for other stuff).

    Also http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/32956756-custom-genres-for-anime :;)

    • Episodes in grid format on Progress page

      Hello,

      There are only 6 "Up-To-Next" episodes on home page and personal progress page only shows episodes on right side as list.

      It would be really great see them like the watchlist so it will be easy to decide watch shows to watch.

      • TMDB Episode groups

        TMDB went ahead and made episodes groups available in the API. TVDB failed kinda hard with their V2 and has this feature nowhere with an ETA. Would it make sense to implement them anyways based on the corresponding TMDB#? The major issues will most likely be things containing specials but the same already holds true with today's mappings.

        • Wrong actor thumbnails (Penn & Teller: Fool Us)

          For this show the thumbnails for Penn Jillette and Teller are the profile image of Jonathan Ross (the previous host of this TV series) instead of their own images.

          I've tried refreshing the data and the images of the series, but it has had no effect.

          The profile images for both actors are correct on their respective pages, and the proper thumbnails show up correctly for all (or at least most) of the other titles they are attached to.

          https://trakt.tv/shows/penn-teller-fool-us

          Thanks!

          • Add started/unstarted filter and percent completed sorting option to lists.

            The lists are great, and especially the native watchlist...

            But it'd be great if I could filter out the ones that I've started or have not started. Furthermore, the ability to sort by the watch completion percentage would be great!

              • 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…

                • Magnificent Century

                  I know there is a total confusion with air dates and episode numbers in every season but there is no confirmation needed from anywhere to see that it has no sense at all that after 4X36 comes 4X104-4X139. 4X104-4X139 is definitely non-existent, so should be removed. Thank you!

                    • Hide Episode Ratings in the Progress page

                      You can already hide screenshots, titles and overviews and I would like to hide the ratings for the episode on the progress page. I hate when I'm watching something and I see it has like 92% rating so I know its a good episode and when I watch the second one and it has 70% rating so I know that it's more boring than the other one so I just stop watching the show. I want to hide the rating percent so I don't know what's coming.

                      • Native Friend discovery

                        Rather than making Friend discovery dependent on 3rd-party social platforms, please implement native Friend discovery. One solution would be comparing tastes and ratings and film viewings between users and letting users discover & add each other that way, similar to Last.FM's Neighbors feature

                          • Show user's rating when displaying item in user's context

                            I find it really interesting to see how other users have rated a movie or show and how they rated others. Unfortunately, trakt currently only surfaces this information sparingly (AFAICT only for friends on an item's page and in a user's ratings tab). This is especially apparent when browsing the site while not logged in.

                            It would be great if trakt could show a user's rating when a movie or show is display in a user's context, i.e. on their profile, history, lists etc.

                            E.g. the profile already shows a user's recently watched episodes and movies and that would be…

                              In the Shows Year in Review we can see how many shows we saw form each Network. It would be cool if we could do the same for the movies and see the Studios!

                              • ABC (AU) network has the wrong icon

                                The network icon for ABC (AU) in the year in review is the same as ABC (US). In fact it's an unrelated channel with its own icon: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/channels/abc.htm

                                Also ABC2 (another channel on the same network) is missing an icon in year in review. It's recently been rebranded as ABC Comedy: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/channels/abc2.htm

                                On the topic of Australian networks, Seven Network is also missing its icon: https://www.seven.com.au/

                                • 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

                                  • Automatic Dark Knight Mode

                                    On twitter (at least the mobile app) you can schedule the night mode on 'automatic' so that it turns on at sunset and off at sunrise.
                                    Based on the Time Zone settings we chose I guess this could be possible

                                    Thanks

                                      Great idea and something I’ve been thinking about too. I would probably allow the user to specific their own start and end time, and possibly do something automatic if I can find a good way based on your time zone.

                                    • Allow other lists to automatically remove item when watched

                                      Allow the option for other lists to act like the watchlist and automatically remove items when you mark them as watched

                                      • 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...

                                        • Please add "watch now" filter by services in personal lists.

                                          For example:
                                          I have Netflix subscription but I don't have HBO. I want to know in my watchlist what I can stream now using Netflix.
