  1. Smart lists

    I think it would be great if you could implement smart lists similar to the smart playlists in iTunes so you could create dynamic playlists with say actor X and actor Y in category Z. The playlist should automatically update when new content match the filtering.

      • Watching duration

        It would be nice to get an overview of how long it took to watch every season of a tv show.

          • UK Airdates

            Can you in addition to selecting your timezone actually set what country you watch in and then pull the appropriate air dates of episodes in from tv rage/thetvdb.

            E.g. I live in the UK so 2 broke girls is 8 episodes behind but i'd like to be able to track it consistently with the UK so i'm not seeing episodes that need watching that haven't even aired yet (at least not locally).

            An option to toggle this on or off for different shows (as some won't have relevant air dates - because tvrage/thetvdb hash't been updated or because it doesn't…

              • Add the option to skip episodes in your progress tracking

                It would be useful to have the possibility to skip a single episode or season. For example, it is useful to make some special episodes you will never watch disappear from the progress view.

                This is different than dropping a show because you may want to skip one episode but be sure of being notified of the next one.

                • better list management

                  better, easier, faster list management

                  - manage lists together -> list with all cool tv shows, mark some for me, my girlfriend, which we want look together
                  - other users can see what items are new on the list
                  - read the summary and tag it
                  - better communication when lists change, notifications for "new item added", "item changed by other user", ...

                  • Tagging friends when checking in

                    I was thinking about a function where you could (when checking in) to tag someone who's listed as one of your friends. This way would save time when two or more persons that have trakt account watch something together. I say that based on my own experience, when I'm with friends and everyone stops to check in. what would be easier if only one could do that and tagging the other. Of course, that would mean that would have to implement too some kind of mechanism where you would allow some people to tag you and later you could just…

                    • In collection, but not seen by you or some of your friends

                      Be able to figure out among friends which movie I have that nobody have seen. (Perfect when you are planing a movie night, and you are able to suggest movies people haven't seen yet)

                        • Compare watched progress with another user

                          Compare your watchprogress with another user (like e.g. in steam).

                          Would be nice to have the possibility to compare the own progress with one (ore more) other users side-by-side.

                          Like http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/3595512-compare-watchlists-with-another-user- this could increase the social process, like whatching episodes, which both are missing together and so on

                                I wonder if would be good a main page with news related to series or movies, news in general so we can use trakt for something more than just selecting what we see.. to use it like a real and trustworthy entertainment website.

                                Perhaps with a section dedicated to detect series that you've seen or are in your watchlist, so that you go there knowing that you'll read something of your interest.

                                • International airings and EPG data

                                  Would it be possible to specify the user country, so that in the calendar we can see the airings adapted to the local channel sets?

                                  For example, FOX Spain airs new episodes of top shows a week later than FOX US, due to (I think) translation and legal issues.

                                    I think there should badges for such things as watching a series premier on day one, 10,000 episode watch, watching complete series, guilty pleasures, etc.

                                    Way to get users better tracking their watch counts

                                    • Translate website, movies, and shows to other languages

                                      It would be really nice, if you let people translate the website but that's not so important for me...
                                      but i found that the movie titles are only the english ones, for example the movie "the inbetweeners" is in german "sex on the beach" and so i couldn't find it first because i didn't know that!

                                      • Share badges with Achivy.com

                                        I know the badges for Trakt haven't even really launched yet, but at some point it would be really great if they could be shared to Achivy. I imagine this would just be a question of making the badges available via the Trakt API so they integrate them into Achivy, right?

                                        • Show more shout/review statistics about the different Trakt users on the shout/review page

                                          Maybe its an idea to show more statistics on shouts and reviews of Trakt users.

                                          For example the total amount of shouts can be shown a Trakt user has made and the total amount of likes for all the shouts someone has received besides the likes on the currently displayed shout or review.
