  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. Remove games

    It's quiet confusing when a list of movies also has some games mixed into it.

    These lists might help with removal:

  4. 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

  5. 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…

  7. 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 :;)

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. Improve PWA

    I'm an Android user and I've often searched for native apps that integrate with Trakt but I always end up returning to the Trakt website itself because it offers more features, is more robust & also is quite quick.

    For a better integration into the OS I always add the website to my homescreen to have the Chrome bar removed and have a separate entry in the Recents with the Trakt icon.

    Now over the last few years/months Google has improved upon this simple add to home screen feature and offered "deeper" integration.

    For example PWAs can show up in…

    Please add Microsoft as a source of the "Watch Now" feature so it is easy to know/access content I can purchase and watch on Xbox/Windows devices. Thank you!

  13. Progress Filters

    In Progress view, there are options to filter by Completed and Ended. However this filters as Completed OR Ended. I'd like for an option to filter as Completed AND Ended, so any that I have seen all episodes but is an ongoing series is still visible. And any that have ended but I haven't finished watching are visible.

    Thanks

  14. Receiving Timeout when trying to load my Watchlist

    Over the past couple days I've been unable to load my watchlist. I always get a Cloudflare timout, either Error 504 or 524. I can navigate the rest of the site ok, but I cannot access my watchlist. As a little background, my watchlist has about 2100 items and is always a bit slow to load, but I've never seen these timeouts before.

  15. Add tmdb movie collections

    When you lookup a title like
    When visiting tmdb and looking at a title for instance "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" it is shown it's part of the Star Wars collection.
    Also when visiting https://www.themoviedb.org/collection/10-star-wars-collection you can easily see which titles are part of this collection. I was thinking it might be handy that we could just click through to a collection and see which titles are part of this collection.

  16. Ignore apostrophe and accents in search

    Right now if you search a title (e.g. "L'illusionista") without putting the apostrophe, the search will not find anything.

    It would be cool if the search API was more forgiving and simply ignore any missing apostrophe or accented letter.

  17. Dashboard & Friends activity

    One area where trakt currently is severely lacking is keeping up with your "network"/"friends". The number of people you can follow before the dashboard looses it's usefulness is probably a mere 3 users. Capping out at 12 recent items is quite harsh. A single casual user these days can probably nuke that feed in an evening alone (watching, collecting, commenting, lists, etc.). Going above that you can pretty much scratch that area of trakt. If you want to find out what certain people are enjoying you are forced to click on their profile AND "study"
    their history (at least for…

  18. search engine fault-tolerance

    If I may, I'd like to ask for a slightly more 'forgiving' search engine which gives us humans the opportunity to do what we do best - make mistakes or at least be allowed not to be 100% precise all the time about our input, for instance searches including release years "Life (2015)", forgotten dots instead of space characters "Life.in.Pieces" and even more obvious spelling mistakes, which trakt at this point really does not approve of (= no results).

    In my experience the IMDB engine does quite a good job in terms of 'fuzzy string searching' and I would love…

  19. cast per season

    I've read this many times on the VIP forum but couldn't find any tickets here.

    I think we should really set cast members per season or at least the main characters.

    Many times I look for an actor and I can't see in his actor grid the TV Shows he played because the character no longer plays in that TV Show.

    So in fact the grid only shows movies and tv shows where the character is still in play (or if he only plays in the last season it's ok)
    Which I sadly find not relevant enough.
