  1. Detailed Progress bar highlighting only areas watched

    Hello, is there any way for the progress bar to show the areas where you haven't watched? like this https://imgur.com/fcZREDC

  2. Insufficient data refreshes

    Just to touch up on http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/11258295-schedule-movie-refreshes and other things regarding the data refresh. Tbh I have seen little improvement regarding data quality on the site. Really sucks hard that any upcoming movie or newly airing show has a big chance of being "incomplete" or running with subpar artwork. There really needs an additional update job besides the update time on their respective source for the refresh.

  3. Check In with Watch Now services

    An option to CHECK IN when using the WATCH NOW services links.

    The WATCH NOW services currently open a modal window with Netflix, Hulu, NBC, etc. which opens a new window to the selection. Those who use the CHECK IN feature must either do that before using WATCH NOW or return to the Trakt show page and close the modal WATCH NOW window in order to click the CHECK IN button, and then return to the tab streaming the show/movie, taking away from the intended ease that each of these features provide on their own. A checkbox to CHECK IN…

  5. Don't hide inline spoilers when watched

    There is no need to hide in-line spoilers when an item is watched.

  6. Up next determined by air date

    Currently, the episode shown to watch next is based on numerical order, so e.g. 4x20 will follow 4x19 - makes sense, of course.
    But if there was a special that aired between these episodes, it will not show up as the next episode, which does of course get especially annoying when the specials are important to the plot of the series, for example Sherlock or Doctor Who.

    So what I'd love is that the "Next episode to watch" on the Dashboard and the Watched Progress page are (maybe optionally) based on the next episode that aired after the latest episode…

  7. Twitter-like popover

    It would be practical to add a popover effect whenever someone hovers over the name of a series on a user's progress list, similar to how Twitter offers a popover preview of a user's profile whenever you hover over their names.

    It would serve to give you a short summary of the series, its overall rating, the genre and home network. Perhaps even include an "Add to watchlist" button within the popover to quickly and easily add the item to your watchlist.

  8. Search option on History page

    Could we have a search option on https://trakt.tv/users/me/history

    So I can search only what I have watched before

  9. Sync to My Anime List

    There is one to sync from, but I’d like to sync my trakt status to my anime list. This would be great!

    Thanks

  10. Sort Watchlist by Network

    I think it would be really useful to be able to sort the watchlist by network/streaming platform. I personally plan to sign up for a streaming platform and watch all the programs they offer at that time in order to save money-knowing what is available on that platforms would make this process even easier!

  11. Concise History

    Make "History" a nicer, concise list of your viewing activity. Letterboxd does this perfectly with their "Diary" page. Trakt's "History" page is close, but the icons for each ep/show are too big so you have to scroll down a lot and hit "next page" in order to see what you watched in just the last week, let alone last month/years. Simply show the date watched on left, then a small scaled show icon, title of the show and the episode title. That's it... on just one line. Clean and simple. Thanks for the consideration!

  13. Exclude shorts in Most Watched Movies

    Exclude short films to showing up in the Most Watched Movies panel. (Because shorts can be watched so many times.)

  14. Movies/Episodes/TV Seasons/TV series Getting Removed

    The main reason I, and I suspect, many others, use, and love, this website is that it is a near perfect tool to keep track of one's watch history. Seeing as that's the most important thing (to me anyway) I would love it if our accounts could get a little notification everytime a movie entry or tv show (or an episode from a tv show) that we've watched gets removed from the trakt database. Just so that we're aware of the things that are no longer accounted for in our watch history. Rather than 5 years later trying to find…

  15. Will Trakt ever decide to use TMDB episode information if there is none on TVDB?

    I love trakt. And I love TMDB. I contribute a lot to TMDB and think it is much better of a site and a community and more user friendly than TVDB. I understand that TVDB probably has a more comprehensive database for series compared to TMDB (I think TV shows are only a fairly recent addition to TMDB). However, contributing to TVDB is much more arduous than to TMDB, especially when it comes to getting incorrect data changed. The TVDB forum is fairly dead and slow to respond, me as a user have no idea if they keep track of…

  16. Preview comment before publishing

    When trying to do "fancier" tricks with Markdown, it's not always clear if the rendered result will match the desired effect. The thing I miss most when writing comments on Trakt compared to places like GitHub is the ability to preview what I've written, as it will appear after posting, before publishing it.

  17. Bath edit plays / history

    When I joined Trakt, I set a bunch of movies/shows I had watched to Release Date if I didn't know the date, but I realized later this messes with my stats more than I'd like. I'd love a bulk edit option (i.e. remove plays before X date) until the indeterminate date option is added.

    No immediate plans to add this to the website. For now, the Trakt API can be used to batch edit. There are also some 3rd party tools out there which might help with this too, although those are mostly to help clean up duplicate plays.

  18. Additional options for profile boxes

    It's very minor, but I think it might be nice to have more options for the boxes on your profile. I marked my ideas per what the boxes currently are on the profiles.

    ABOUT BOX
    Featured comment/review of your own choosing.

    MOST WATCHED MOVIE
    Random movie from your history. It changes on refresh.
    Featured movie of your own choosing.

    MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
    Random TV show from your history. It changes on refresh.
    Featured TV show of your own choosing.

    I think little stuff like this makes it a little bit more personal.

  19. Reject duplicate plays to history

    I don't do regular housekeeping of my trakt data and things are prone to get messy due to various bugs in apps and plugins but I'll always end up with duplicate plays at some point. Many of those end up going from check-ins to plays at the same timestamp which shouldn't get accepted as valid by the site at all imho or at least end up getting merged. Despite not not being advertised outside of some support threads and a single kodi forum thread I end up getting a lot of visitors on my duplicate removal script (500+ last year)…

  20. Trakt rating breakdown

    It would be great if Trakt ratings could be broken down to how many users choose each rating. A Trakt version of this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3829266/ratings?ref_=tt_ov_rt
