  1. Will Trakt ever decide to use TMDB episode information if there is none on TVDB?

    I love trakt. And I love TMDB. I contribute a lot to TMDB and think it is much better of a site and a community and more user friendly than TVDB. I understand that TVDB probably has a more comprehensive database for series compared to TMDB (I think TV shows are only a fairly recent addition to TMDB). However, contributing to TVDB is much more arduous than to TMDB, especially when it comes to getting incorrect data changed. The TVDB forum is fairly dead and slow to respond, me as a user have no idea if they keep track of…

    • Import watched status from Netflix csv

      Hi, from my account in Netflix I can download a csv of everything I've ever watched and the date I watched it. It would be tremendous if I could import all that into Trakt. Even better if I import is more than once, it shouldn't duplicate - such that I can do it periodically.

      • 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.

        ^^

        • Movies/Episodes/TV Seasons/TV series Getting Removed

          The main reason I, and I suspect, many others, use, and love, this website is that it is a near perfect tool to keep track of one's watch history. Seeing as that's the most important thing (to me anyway) I would love it if our accounts could get a little notification everytime a movie entry or tv show (or an episode from a tv show) that we've watched gets removed from the trakt database. Just so that we're aware of the things that are no longer accounted for in our watch history. Rather than 5 years later trying to find…

          • Removing early rating (ie rating of unreleased episode) or banning early rater?

            Hi TrackTV team,

            I know I'm onto a topic that have been discussed already, and I'm trying the shed a new light here, my apologies if this has been already discussed also.

            I'm seeing more and more rating on episode that have not been released yet, which is annoying (because it is not very smart) but mostly it is biaising the overall rate of a tv show (unless it gets loads of votes), hence degrading the trust a user can have of TrackTV ratings.

            I have seen several other requests that have been denied but none pointing out the negative…

            • Sync to My Anime List

              There is one to sync from, but I’d like to sync my trakt status to my anime list. This would be great!

              Thanks

              • Concise History

                Make "History" a nicer, concise list of your viewing activity. Letterboxd does this perfectly with their "Diary" page. Trakt's "History" page is close, but the icons for each ep/show are too big so you have to scroll down a lot and hit "next page" in order to see what you watched in just the last week, let alone last month/years. Simply show the date watched on left, then a small scaled show icon, title of the show and the episode title. That's it... on just one line. Clean and simple. Thanks for the consideration!

                  Exclude short films to showing up in the Most Watched Movies panel. (Because shorts can be watched so many times.)

                  • 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".

                    • Bath edit plays / history

                      When I joined Trakt, I set a bunch of movies/shows I had watched to Release Date if I didn't know the date, but I realized later this messes with my stats more than I'd like. I'd love a bulk edit option (i.e. remove plays before X date) until the indeterminate date option is added.

                        No immediate plans to add this to the website. For now, the Trakt API can be used to batch edit. There are also some 3rd party tools out there which might help with this too, although those are mostly to help clean up duplicate plays.

                      • 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…

                            Add Desktop/Pushover notifications on friends activity.

                            For instance, when I am following someone I like to keep track of what they are watching to see if there's something interesting for me.

                            Instead of only exploring my friends' activity on my dashboard I would like to receive real-time notifications when they start watching a movie or episode.

                              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.

                              • "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…

                                    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
