  1. Custom genres for anime

    You previously added some genres based on keywords on trakt. I would like to propose the following to be added to that list, primarily having anime shows in mind:
    - Harem (http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2859) (could be handled as romance but shows usually have no "winning" girl)
    - Slice of Life (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2864) (imho the biggest one since "drama" doesn't fit at all)
    - Mecha (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2638)
    - Ecchi (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2856) (could be handled as "erotic" to cover regular content too)
    - Romance (TMDB has yet to create this as a genre for TV shows..)
    - Horror (same..)

    • Improve icon in PWA on Android

      I've added shortcut to trakt to my home screen via Chrome menu option "Add to Home screen", and the icon looks out of place among all the apps. It's square and too big. You could make a nice circular icon and it would for perfectly.

      • TV show External Links not picking up?

        There seems to be something very wrong when it comes to updating external links like Twitter or Instagram from TMDB for shows. Doesn't seem to get triggered at all, even past the 8 hours of caching?

        https://trakt.tv/shows/brooklyn-nine-nine would have an instagram but doesn't show up
        https://trakt.tv/shows/love-is-like-after-the-rain and other shows where I tried to add a twitter also don't update.

        • Dismiss Inbox/Notices on all devices

          Currently, whenever I get a new notification from Trakt I can interact with it and then dismiss it with the 🚫 icon. The issue that I have is that If I log onto multiple devices I have to dismiss it on each device individually, even though I have already seen it.

          It would be nice if I could dismiss the notice once and have it removed from everywhere.

            • A more personalized and complete list (Like MyAnimeList)

              What i find really annoying with using trakt, is the way you have to seperate shows or movies into seperate list for your personal "status" on that show (Like i need to make my own list for shows that i have dropped, have on hold or have completed (and you have the default Watchlist for shows you want to watch.))

              So what i think would immensely help organize our shows/movies, is to have a more "Complete list" of every show/movie and their own "Status", like they do on MyAnimeList. (Or we could just have a new system of "tagging" shows,…

              • Hoopla as a watch now source

                There is a library based streaming site that if your local public library supports it you sign in with your library card and are able to check out a few movies or tv shows a month. I believe that this may be a good watch now source because it is free and is supported by public libraries.

                • Change modal windows behavior

                  It would be nice clicking on the modal “backdrop” to automatically close the modal. Currently modals can be closed only with the [ x ] close link in upper right corner of the modals.

                  • Shows reappearing in Watchlist. Delete all button needed for the watchlist.

                    Every show in watchlist (260) are reappearing after being deleted. It’s too many and takes too much time to delete them one by one.

                    Watchlist NEEDS a delete all buttons. Not everyone is capable of performing scripts to mass delete items on a page via a browser console.

                    I’ve disabled any apps that were syncing with the watchlist. Please fix it!

                    • Add a way to flag duplicates directly from item pages

                      Would it be possible to add some way to flag duplicates directly on the site?

                      For example adding a link "this is/has a duplicate" next to the "refresh data" that open a pop-up where you can enter a link to the duplicate/original of a movie/show, maybe even a comment if details are needed.
                      It would be easier and quicker for user to inform you about them and you could even see the links that are flagged more often and correct them first.

                      It would reduce the number of support messages and make duplicate/error signaling accessible to the less curious of…

                      • Up Next To Watch: use a list as a queue

                        Hi

                        I have a suggestion for the dashboard, a new section or an option to choose between my watching progress or a custom ranked list that would function as a queue of sorts.

                        Obviously this is going to be a little tricky to implement because of the different types of items (movies, shows, seasons, episodes) but it would be very helpful not just as a queue but also as a tool to track the watching order of some shows. For example, I could close the X-Files Essential Episodes and have the first 6 items of that list show up in…

                        • I'd like to be able to ignore users

                          There are certain individuals writing WOTs for the lamest of episodes imaginable without saying much on a regular basis, or people deliberately spamming the comment section with multiple (different) >1k character comments (but 0-1min timestamp differences).

                          I'd like to set a user to be ignored to not see his/her reviews and shouts (or replies). It's greatly annoying to see that a recent episode has like 6-9 comments in total whereas 4-6 are from the same person upon expanding the comment section.
                          Or see yet another review talking hot air about redundant, petty things for thousands of characters, pretty much without…

                          • Reformat Mobile Pages

                            Hello Trakt.tv team,

                            I have had my Trakt.tv Progress page bookmarked to my home screen on my Android phone for well over a year now. It's so functional that I see no reason for an app, and I thank you sincerely for that. However there is one small but very relevant detail that I personally feel would make your mobile site much more comprehensible; that is having the show info displayed under the episode's visual aid/screenshot, as opposed to the info displaying above as it presently does.

                            Here you can see that on the mobile site the episode info is…

                              I was reading this article, trying to get a handle on whether as a web app dev, pandas might be useful to me.
                              I saw the example of ratings by age and thought of you, food for thought?

                              • Change ratings text

                                The text associated with 1-10 star ratings currently isn't very helpful.
                                For example, I feel like Star Wars: The Force Awakens is described best of the options with "weak sauce", but I don't think it was as bad as a 1.
                                It's the same with the other end: I could describe Scott Pilgrim as "totally ninja", but don't feel like it was a 10/10 masterpiece film.

                                I'm coming from MyAnimeList, where the 10 points each have a non-subjective position on the scale which I use to help me decide on an appropriate rating for the series/film. It helps stop me…

                                    • Non-blurred Titles right after Login

                                      I enabled the "blur titles" feature for shows and have been using it for a while. When I relogged in to my account after a cache cleaning, titles were not blurred on my dashboard. Refreshing the page solved the issue but just wanted to mention it.

                                      • emoji support in About profile text

                                        Adding emoji in your user bio currently causes a 500 error on save. Plain text symbols (including non-English characters) work a-okay, but not emoji. If no support is planned, a message in the Account page such as “no markdown, HTML, or emoji allowed” would be helpful so users aren’t confused why updates aren’t saving.

                                        Thank you!

                                        • Provide a Simplified Tracking Option

                                          There should be an option in the settings menu that allows users to choose the tracking level they desire (for example, a dropdown list called "Tracking Level" with the options "basic", "standard" and "data nerd").

                                          When a user sets their level to basic, they will not be required to record watch dates and can view their lists without any indication of the watch date. This will essentially simplify tracking to a watchlist, watched history, collected and rated. The only date visible could be a "date added" which simply indicates when you added it to a list in Trakt.

                                          Reason for…
