  1. 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!

    • 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.

          • 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

                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.

              • Rotten Tomatoes score

                I know this has been suggested (and declined) before, but adding Rotten Tomatoes rating would be great.

                I know Trakt already has user ratings (I've been rating my watched titles myself) but it would still be nice to compare the community ratings with the critic's from Rotten Tomatoes.

                It has an API - as opposed to IMDb, for instance - so it might be possible.

                • 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

                  • Add a custom filter to progress page

                    I personally watch 40-50% of my shows with my other half, and would love to mark shows as such so I can filter to shows only I am watching on the progress page.

                    • Writer, director, and guest stars for TV episodes

                      I was wondering if it's possible to get the Writer/Director information from TV-episodes over to trakt. Right now those are missing on the people page. Maybe connecting the show and an episode count would be enough?

                      TV-directors just get left off the site. But many well known film directors like Spielberg, Scorsese, Tarantino, Cameron, Hitchcock, J.J. Abrams and Lynch have had their hand in TV aswell (without credit on the site). Anthology series are another thing where this would be great.

                      • 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…

                            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.

                            • 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.

                                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.

                                • 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…

                                  • Filter idea and a serach bar in within rating/collection section

                                    When in your ratings page, instead of fading your lets say collected movies they should just disappear completely and only show the once that you haven't collected ... A mini search bar within your ratings and collection page would also be really helpful in quickly finding out if you have rated or collected a curtain movie/show.

                                      Add Seen up to this episode/season button, please, it is a core feature IMHO.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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
