      Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.

      This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.

    • Track other forms of media

      I'd love to see some other media forms (manga, books, video games, etc.) on the site so I can track everything in one spot.

      • Allow unknown watching date

        i'm a Trakt noob. when my favorite iPhone app completely shifted over to using Trakt for their backend, i had to create a Trakt account if i wanted to continue using it. so i did.

        recently i learned that the Trakt website lets you also track Movie's & such too (yes, i had not visited the actual website until recently); so i began to explore the site & thought i'd start filling in what i've seen & wanna see etc.

        i was astonished to find that i could NOT add any movies to the "History" & "Collection" areas without providing…

          Your points make sense, but as before this is still not something we plan on supporting. I’ll move this to researching, but I don’t anticipate changing this in the near term.

        • Follow People (Actors) and get notifications

          It would be great to follow or like people (actors), so trakt can notify me about new movies of this person or use this information to recommend movies with actors I like/follow

            kind of like the "neighbours" feature on last.fm, you get suggestions on who to add as a friend (people with similar tv show/movie taste to you) based on the tv shows, episodes and movies you marked as seen.

            • Refresh on dashboard and progress pages.

              It would be cool if you didn't have to refresh the page after ticking off a episode on the 'on deck to watch' widget and progress page, instead making the episode box refresh. This allows the whole process of checking off shows the be seamless.

              Cheers!

              • Add "where" and "with" fields

                It would be nice to be able to indicate where and with who has been seen a particular movie/episode. In particular:

                [1] Every "watch date" should have its "where" and "with".
                [2] In the "where" field I can write what I want.
                [3] In the "with" field I can write what I want or add a trakt user.
                [4] If in the "where" field I enter "Sunshine Cinema", this place is automatically saved in a specific "Places" page, in which I can add/delete/edit all the places.
                [5] The places in the "Places" page are automatically suggested when I set the…

                • Restart TV Show Progress While Keeping Episode Watch Count

                  This problem mainly arose with the most recent 2.0 update to the trakt addon in XBMC, I love the two way syncing system however, when I want to rewatch a tv series I can't make use of the XBMC "watched" feature which is a pain. This happens because if I mark the tv series as unwatched (to start tracking my XBMC progress again) it will automatically mark it as seen upon next load.

                  I often watch videos on different systems so the two way syncing is like an angel from heaven, however I think that some sort of system on…

                  • Group episodes of a show that are marked as watched simultaneously on the history page

                    Marking a season of a show, or the whole show itself, as watched will display each of the show's episode on the history page. Imagine that on a show with 200 episode that you had watched previously, for example. You mark this show as watched and then you check your history. You'll have to navigate through a lot of pages that display the show's episodes and it's kind of an unpleasant experience, especially when you want to review your watched history.

                    • A options that you could subscribe or un subscribe from a show

                      For example: if i watch one or two episodes it doesn't necessarily mean i want to continue to watch the show. therefore if you want, you can subscribe to it or dont, so it would show in my progress page and in my calendar

                      • Button report

                        I believe that a button for reporting erroneous duplicate or registered titles would be good! For I have seen several series registered as movies and personal giving checkin anyway. And with the button would be easier to report, rather than being created topic here.

                          • use yours and a friends profile to find movies none of you have seen

                            Wouldnt it be awesome when trying to find movies to watch

                            1. pick friend/s to watch with
                            2. press a ''lets watch a movie button''
                            3. get a list of all the movies none of you have seen, with various ways of filtering it of course

                            this kind of goes towards having a more social and interacting Trakt, and a easy way to sell in trakt to your friends

                            • Privacy: hide watch times

                              I've had several friends complain about Trakt that altough they like being able to see what TV Shows and Movies other friends have watched, they don't like the 'time' being displayed.

                              They have no problem inthe information showing they watched XXX on Tuesday, but they have a problem when it also says they watched at 11AM.

                              Probably because of privacy issues. Maybe then don't want friends knowing they're at home watching TV instead of working, or at 3AM watching TV.

                              I believe there are lots of strong and compelling reasons to make Times an toggle, and user can decide to…

                                Interesting idea. We’ll look into this, the main challenge is not only hiding from the website, bu also the API. The activity API specifically is largely based around timestamps of all the various actions.

                              • Add personal status to shows via the progress page.

                                I would be really cool if users can mark/flag their shows manually, for example:

                                Watching - If the user is actively watching it.
                                Renewed - If the user has caught up and the shows is on break.
                                Airing - If the user has caught up and the show is airing.
                                Hiatus - If the user has caught up and the show is on midseason break or something like that.
                                On-Hold - If the user has paused watching the show but hasn't dropped it.
                                Dropped - If the user doesn't intend to watch any-more.
                                Re-watching - If the user is re-watching…

                                • Make 'Data refresh' available for everyone (improves it for everyone ;)

                                  Hi,

                                  so I changed some shows in TMDB. I guess I could now manually refresh it in trakt. Wouldn't it make sense to allow this for everyone? Currently, I would have to inform you (or support) and they do it manually... if you could just tell all wrong show info complainers to go to TMDB, fix it and they just hit refresh when done, you will never have to fix something manually ;)

                                  thanks,
                                  chris

                                  • Movie language matching with "original title"

                                    After coming by this too often:
                                    Please rely on the original title language from TMDB only as a fallback. It's wrong on tons of foreign movies due to the fact that the field was added just over a year ago.

                                    I would take the language field as the default and only if multiple languages are found do a comparison with the "original title". Wouldn't hurt to display all of them anyways though ;).

                                    • Import movies/shows from another account

                                      Add the ability to import in your account history, from another account on trakt, the selected movies/shows/episodes with the same watch date and the same votes.

                                      • More options for sorting movies/shows

                                        It would be great if more options for sorting could be added (by director, genres....) to watchlist, library, ratings and all other places where you can sort movies and shows. I use my watchlist do decide which movie/show to watch next and library/history to go through movies/shows that I have seen when I want to recommend some of those to friends or family, so those options would make it much easier. Thanks.

                                        • Add TMDB as an alternative to pull TV data

                                          I've been using trakt a lot, I have a lot of different shows on my progress list, and recently I have started to notice that TVDB has some stupid rules, and don't allow certain shows to be added.

                                          I propose that there should be a way for a specific show to pull its data from TMDB instead, that doesn't have those stupid rules, I don't know how hard that would be to implement, but since the website already pulls the data for movies from TMDB, I hope not a lot.
                                          In last resort case, there should be a way to…
