  1. 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.

    • Sort all episodes by release date

      I would like it if all TV Shows in a list could be combined to where all of the episodes of all the shows were in one list and I could sort by release date.

      • Movie language matching with "original title"

        After coming by this too often:
        Please rely on the original title language from TMDB only as a fallback. It's wrong on tons of foreign movies due to the fact that the field was added just over a year ago.

        I would take the language field as the default and only if multiple languages are found do a comparison with the "original title". Wouldn't hurt to display all of them anyways though ;).

        • 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

            • 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 "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…

                • 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.

                      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.

                    • 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.

                      • Actor & Crew for TV shows on season or episode level

                        Via TMDB I can enter actors and crew on season and episode level. Via trakt I can only see the actors from the latest season.

                        This means that I cannot search on actors / crew that has participated to an episode or season of a TV show (except if they participated in the latest season).

                        This is inaccurate. For example: You have a TV show with a main character during 9 of the 10 seasons. Because the main character is replaced during the latest season, this actor is not displayed via Trakt (because Trakt only displays actors from the latest…

                        • 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.

                          • Hidden Shows - Additions!

                            Well - here's my idea. The ability to hide a show from your progress bar is great, but we all have guilty pleasure shows that we'd rather not tell everybody about. So being able to watch a show, check it in on the website and all, without making it visible to everybody would be great. Just being able to hide it from your public profile would be great.

                            • 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

                              • Watch a TV Show or Movie with a friend

                                Often times, I don't watch movies or TV shows alone, but with friends. It would be nice, if only one person would check into a movie/show and mark the others. That way you could not only track which shows/movies you have watched, but also with whom.

                                If you would like to make things more complex, you could link a foursquare profile to your trakt account and check in (movies/shows) those friends who are checked into the same venue as you are. But that's maybe over the top ;)

                                • Show a chart of the ratings per episode for every season/entire series so that you can see if the show getts better/getts worse.

                                  It would be cool so see that the first season of a show is better then the last one. Maybe you saw the last episode aired on your tv, thought is had a reasonably interesting concept, but not good enough to want too keep watching. Then you could see if the first season got different ratings and realize; "Maybe it's worth watching after all!"

                                  I think a graph would give it a better look, and make it easier to understand and read.

                                  • "What to watch next" roulette.

                                    "What to watch next" roulette.
                                    A feature that picks something at random from your watchlist. This would be great as I have A LOT of movies to watch and have trouble deciding which to watch. Sort of like "shuffle" with songs except it's with items in your watchlist.

                                    • 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

                                      • 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!

                                        • 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…
