  1. Turn "Up next to watch" on the Dashboard into a sideways scroll

    Instead of having to click "SEE MORE", we could just press a left or right arrow that would show everything we have on "Up next to watch".

    • Create a folder/list of lists

      I like to keep my series/doramas/animes/variety or reality shows organized by status (currently watching, dropped, priority, freezer etc), but my lists get a bit messy since they're all mixed up.
      If I could create different folders for each, I think it would make things easier.

      And I know it sounds like a feature not many people would use, but it's worth the try.

      Thanks anyway.

      ^^

      • Automatically reload page if connection to server is lost.

        I keep a tab open on Trakt in Firefox for Android at all times and come back to it whenever I need to file something as watched. Because of the caching system in Firefox (possibly just for Android?), sometimes the tab is being loaded from the local cache instead of from the server.

        When it does this, I'm no longer connected to the server, and trying to mark shows gives me an error saying "You are already signed in." To get the site back into working condition, I need to hit reload in Firefox to force it to establish a…

          Allow to reorder Watchlist in the personal lists page? It's not that important to be featured at the top.

          • [API] Users/watched to include number of seasons/episodes in show/season

            The results from users/watched shows to include how many seasons are actually in the show, and how many episodes there are in the season.

            Then it would be possible to calculate percentage the user has watched of the show without pulling information from every single show to make the calculation.

              We don’t include this information for performance reasons. I’ll move this to researching, but I don’t think its something we’ll be able to do anytime soon unfortunately.

            • "Most watched TV show" should be about total time

              If I watch 10 5-minute-episodes, this doesn't really mean that the show should be prominently featured on my profile over a show with 8 episodes that are 1 hour each. How much someone likes a show is best shown by how much time they spend watching it; episode counts are arbitrary and favor sitcoms over real shows.

              • Add a way to flag duplicates directly from item pages

                Would it be possible to add some way to flag duplicates directly on the site?

                For example adding a link "this is/has a duplicate" next to the "refresh data" that open a pop-up where you can enter a link to the duplicate/original of a movie/show, maybe even a comment if details are needed.
                It would be easier and quicker for user to inform you about them and you could even see the links that are flagged more often and correct them first.

                It would reduce the number of support messages and make duplicate/error signaling accessible to the less curious of…

                • International Watch Now links

                  I find that when I click on the where to watch button and it says a show is available on Netflix, it actually isn't always because it seems to only be based off the American catalogue. So I was just wondering if it would be possible to make the where to watch location specific so if it says a program/film is available on a platform, it actually is

                  • 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…

                      I watch movies and series episodes on my Mac or iPhone, and would really like to sync my watched statuses to Trakt.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                            I've already opened a ticket about this (closed now) but if we're gonna just do it manually then it's going to be quite the long list. So here's what I'm suggesting...

                            Since the issue here is TMDb's definiton of what constitutes an 'adult movie' (most of Tinto Brass' filmography is not marked as such, while most people would describe his movies as "porn but, like... with dialogue") a middle ground can be found in the tags of these movies (which makes them appear in the recommendation sections and search). So while, say, Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens is not…

                            • Most Watched TV Show

                              On the profile page, the section titled:
                              MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
                              Is, or can be, a bit misleading. Example of what I mean:
                              TV Show 1 (TV1) has 150 episodes
                              TV Show 2 (TV2) has 20 episodes

                              Now, I watch TV1 in its entirety, so that is 150 watches. Now I watch TV2, all episodes, 5 times. That is 100 watches. Now, the section titled most watched... will say that TV1 is most watched. Now TV1 has the most watches, because it has the most episodes, but really TV2 is the most watched as it has been watched 5 times…

                                • Most Watched boxes customizable

                                  During my childhood I watched many animes such as Dragon Ball Z.
                                  If I check-in the seasons the TV Show becomes my most watched TV Show by far.
                                  Therefore this will never change since it has over 200 episodes and no new TV Shows today will have that much (I think)
                                  I would like to be able to add this TV Show in my watched list but don't think having it as my most watched TV show is really relevant.
                                  This applies for movies too.

                                  • private profile public list

                                    I have a private profile, but would like to make one of my lists public.

                                    At the moment this doesn't seem to be possible. (Searches for the name of the list, already set to Public, does not return any results. If I go directly to the link of the list when logged out, what shows up is a message that the user is private, and not the public list.)

                                    • Lock lists

                                      Allowing lists to be "locked". So a movie can't be added or removed from the film page. It can be annoying when a list is "complete" (ex. a film festival or the Top X from year Y) and by mistake I add a movie who has nothing to do in this list because I clicked the wrong one. It hold no sense to propose me to add the movie to a list when the list is "locked" or "finished"

                                      • 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

                                        • 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
