  1. Show what shows/movies you both watched when browsing someones profile

    Like on the Website MyAnimeList. When visting the history page of someone elses profile it would be cool to see a little statistics on top which shows how many shows/movies you both watched or rated the same.

    • Adjust "up next" episodes to be selected as earliest unwatched episode for people skipping around a series.

      TL;DR: If I've viewed some episodes from season 1 and some from season 7, let me choose my "next episode" to default to the earliest unwatched episode (season 1) rather than the current default of the latest (season 7).

      Shows without a plot (i.e. documentaries, sketch shows, etc.) are quite often watched out of order. For example, here's my viewing of ESPN's 30 for 30 series.

      As you can see episode 3x03 is "up next" but I still have quite a few episodes before it in season 1 and 2 to watch. The true "next" episode for me to…

      • Season Posters

        I think there should be system so we can upload and vote for seasons posters or movie posters, for "perfect" customization. Maybe a vote system once a week for VIPs or all users? Mainly i have 3 matching posters for 3 seasons for Fargo. A harmony in all banners and posters would be "great!" interface for Trakt.tv!

        • 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.

            • Ability to apply a dark theme across the entire website?

              It would be really amazing if you could make a dark version of the website. I suffer from Horton's (also known as cluster headache) and while I love the site and use it practically every day, it can sometimes be pretty painful, because of its brightness.

              But even people without any similar conditions could benefit from it, seeing as a high-contrast, dark theme would reduce eye strain.

              I wouldn't mind if you made various other themes, offered up 1 for free, so regular users could see what it does, and then make the rest a VIP feature. Or do what…

              • Links to previous and following movies in a movie franchise/series.

                Links to previous and following movies in a movie franchise/series. E.g. on the movie page for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" link to "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1". Personally I would put the links in the box containing runtime and other meta information.

                Concerning the source for this data I can tell you that The Movie DB have "collections" which seen to contain movie series and franchises. This data is accessible through their API similar to their movie data.

                When you get the movie data there is…

                • Graphically present timeline of watched/collected episodes

                  I think it would be cool and useful if the progress bars in the watched/collected screens was filled by what episodes you've seen, so that if there's a 3 season show, and you've seen season two, the 33% of the bar filled would be in the middle of the progress bar. Gives a nice one-look view of whether you are missing any of the latest episodes.

                  For a graphical representation, see https://www.dropbox.com/s/j5wdnn22x58c9w1/trakt-idea.jpg?dl=0

                  • 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 YouTube video links to episodes

                      A good amount of shows have canonical versions of their episodes uploaded on YouTube.

                      It'd be useful if there was a way to "link" episodes with those specific YouTube videos.

                      This unique video ID (the part after /watch?v=) would ideally be exposed through the backend for API clients. As for the website, instead of embedding the video, a simple link would be fine since I don't think you guys are interested in turning Trakt into a viewing platform.

                      The reason I'm interested in this is, it's always been a hassle to keep track of your subscriptions and the content you…

                      • 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.

                          Alternate show dates for different regions (i.e. Doctor Who on BBC America vs. Doctor Who on BBC One)

                                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.

                              • 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…

                                • Season Finale Alert (IT IS POSSIBLE)

                                  I believe there is some data available that could be used to detect at least a "Possible Season Finale" and send that notification out to users that want this feature. You could label it a BETA FEATURE and you could even crowdsource it (have users confirm it is a season finale). Even if you send the notification out, two weeks after the season finale happened, it is still useful information to me and to many other users that like binge-watching seasons. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

                                  • Choose favorite TV show and movie

                                    In profile we have "Favorite movies" and "Favorite TV shows" that show things according to the option, for example I use "Random rated 10" and shows all movies that I rated 10. Would be nice if I could choose my real favorite movie and tv show independent of my ratings.

                                    ps: I'm the worst explaining things and sorry about my english I'm brazilian.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Group episodes in season dumps in calendar

                                        Netflix and other platforms are starting to premiere seasons all at once, making the calendar (I have the grid view) really long. I think that if 3 or more episodes premiere on the same day you should do like a stack, saying that season X premieres, or that episodes 14 to 26 premiere or something like that.

                                        So you get an idea of the problem: http://i.imgur.com/Cao7wOJ.jpg

                                        Thank you :)

                                        • Find users with similar tastes and a high compatibility rating

                                          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.
