    • Spoiler switch in the main menu or elsewhere integrated in the UI

      The same way there's now a fast switch for dark mode in the main menu (Dark Knight Mode), I think it would be interesting the have a quick method to turn spoilers on and off. For example, when browsing lists, specially when there are lots of special episodes, sometimes I need to click on several items to reveal their titles, because "Special 34" doesn't give as much information as "6x03", and it becomes tiresome pretty fast. Going to settings to temporarily turn spoilers off and later turn them on isn't ideal either. I think a switch where a single click…

      • Filtering lists by Advanced Filters

        I have Trakt VIP and access to Advanced Filters. I can filter shows via parameters like 'network' or 'watchnow', that are appended to URL.

        Would be possible to support similar advanced filtering for lists. I tried adding same parameters to URL, but it didn't work.

        For example I have watchlist consisting ~40 shows. I would like to see shows produced by Netflix. So I'd like to use:

        https://trakt.tv/users/franiis/lists/watchlist-shows?sort=released,asc&networks=Netflix

        (some UI could be usable, but support for URL should be easier and faster to add).

        • Automatically reload page if connection to server is lost.

          I keep a tab open on Trakt in Firefox for Android at all times and come back to it whenever I need to file something as watched. Because of the caching system in Firefox (possibly just for Android?), sometimes the tab is being loaded from the local cache instead of from the server.

          When it does this, I'm no longer connected to the server, and trying to mark shows gives me an error saying "You are already signed in." To get the site back into working condition, I need to hit reload in Firefox to force it to establish a…

          • Allow to reorder Watchlist

            Allow to reorder Watchlist in the personal lists page? It's not that important to be featured at the top.

            • Create a folder/list of lists

              I like to keep my series/doramas/animes/variety or reality shows organized by status (currently watching, dropped, priority, freezer etc), but my lists get a bit messy since they're all mixed up.
              If I could create different folders for each, I think it would make things easier.

              And I know it sounds like a feature not many people would use, but it's worth the try.

              Thanks anyway.

              ^^

              • Bug: Check-in, then rate will watch the episode twice

                It is a bug, and here are steps to reproduce:
                1. Open an episode link on the website (or movie)
                2. Check-in the episode
                3. Watch it (can be escaped)
                4. Rate the episode
                You will find the watch count is 2, it should be 1.

                What did I do to go around it?
                After I check-in an episode, I manually refresh the webpage, then after I rate the episode.
                So a manual refresh is mandatory after checking-in in order to not duplicate your watching history.

                I guess a possible solution might be a force update to the cache and…

                • Have 'Up next' show next episode starting from most recently watched

                  This probably isn't a hugely common use case but one I have experienced more than once.

                  Basically, sometimes I will see later episodes of a show for various reasons – it's on cable, I watch it with someone at their place, etc. – and afterwards start from the beginning. However, until I reach the point of the later episode – which could be half a dozen seasons in – my "next episode" will continue to show something I won't get to for another month.

                  It's not a huge deal since I can of course just find the earlier episodes through…

                  • Select preferred "Watch Now" services

                    Reelgood, Trakt's (primary?) "Watch Now" data partner, could possibly provide this information somehow with an update to the existing two-way sync feature, if implementing Trakt's own UI for it isn't feasible due to available dev time etc.

                    The main use cases I see are filtering lists and other views to show only content the user has access to through a service subscription, and prioritizing which two "Watch Now" buttons get the prime slot below the poster image on pages where that applies. (Right now, even shows that are available on e.g. Hulu display Amazon & iTunes purchase options there, forcing…

                      • 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.

                          • 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…

                                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…

                                  • Add movie studios to year review

                                    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!

                                    • 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

                                      • 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.
