We have a lot of support tickets and are working to update the site and issues as fast as we can. If you don’t get a reply right away, it’s not because we’re ignoring you, but because we are working on updates. Thanks.

How can we improve Trakt.tv?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

  1. Movie sets/Sequels

    I would really love that when you're watching some movie's page it would show somewhere that is it a part of some movie set (sequels etc.).

    • Recommend a show, episode or movie to a friend

      It would be great if i could recommend a given show, episode or movie to another trakt user.

      In order to avoid spam i suggest that you can only send a recommendation to a user that follows you.

      • How many movies have you seen from a specific person?

        I added this idea on vip forum, but might as well post here to for the general pop to see :)

        Its fun to know :

        • Let us remind ourselves why we added a movie to our Watchlist (with a note)

          You're going to love this idea. Ok, so we're human, right? We have 24 hours in a day, 9 of those are spent working, and we get about 2 to watch a movie or some TV. We've all got way too many movies on each of our Watchlists, and many us, by the time we get around to watching some of these movies we added to our Watchlist, we've totally forgotten why we added the movie to it in the first place (why we were interested), especially when you added it for some reason like, a friend recommended it to…

              • Comments and Moderation

                I've written a rather short summary of my thoughts about the comments in v2 of trakt here: https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/7325147-a-little-feedback-about-comments

                Now, this was closed at the end of April with the comment saying the not finished, other things you'd "cover" in other tasks. So, 8 months later and nothing more happened.
                There's an even older suggestion about "community moderators" here: https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/6955017-idea-community-moderators
                That one is from January with a "Long Term" label.
                While I do not agree with the suggested application requirements, I still do think trakt definitely needs moderators for comments.
                And with moderators a way to message people directly. That would…

                      Planning to add this back. It was removed since it was unclear to most users what it was even for. Still figuring out the best way to display that info.

                    • Search Prediction for the search box

                      well. im talking about search prediction like google has, when u type something and automatically the site suggest the rest of the search and the list is presented under the search box, its really missing, pretty easy to add (:

                        Official Lists should be brought back I used to like looking to see how many of the IMDB top 250 movies I had seen. Along with box set lists of movies that are together such as Star Wars.

                        • 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…

                          • network activity

                            Please make the Network Activity section on the dashboard bigger.

                            A lot of my friends (and me including) love to marathon tv shows and at the moment I can just see the last 9 episodes. If my friends marathon a show I won't be able to see any other activity and I just don't want to check everyone's history individually.
                            If this idea messed up the new dashboard, then it would also be an idea to add a "Read more" button next to that section and that button could redirect us to the last 30 or 40 activities/entries of our…

                            • 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.

                              • 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…

                                  Hi !

                                  I made an open source Chrome extension to add some functionalities to the website that was missing for my use.

                                  It adds dynamic charts on people pages with personal statistics & complex filtering, to have a precise overview on what you've seen of the filmography of the current person. In addition to the stats candy, it's really a way to navigate in someone's work trough the user own history.

                                  It also adds translation of movies titles, information and posters in the language of your choice (trough TMDb) and enable the addition of links to any websites in the…

                                    Can the color scheme of the "Favorite Genres" Pie Chart on the Profile Page be different colors instead of "50 Shades of Red" ;] Or possibly in the settings the user can decide which colors they want their genres to represent for the profile page pie chart.

                                      • Hide "completed and ended" shows

                                        I know there are various ways to hide shows on the progress page. But if I use"hide ended shows", it hides the ones that are ended but I haven't completed yet so I can't keep tracking on them. If I use "hide completed", I can't see when the new episode will be of them. So it would be great if you could create a button which hides shows that are both ended AND completed at the same time. This way I could see everything I am interested in right now on my progress page.

                                        • Add filter for most popular(most followed/commented...) user lists

                                          One thing I would love to see coming back from old site is the popular
                                          lists section where you could browse through most popular (liked/followed/commented) user lists. In the past I used this to discover some great movies this way! Example for a former popular list:
                                          http://trakt.tv/users/_varg/lists/great-movies-you-may-have-never-heard-of

                                          I know that I can use the search to look for personal lists using:

                                          http://trakt.tv/search/lists?q=afi

                                          But there's no way to filter for most followed lists (month/year/week) as far as I know. What do you think?
