  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.

        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.

      • 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…

        • Restart TV Show Progress While Keeping Episode Watch Count

          This problem mainly arose with the most recent 2.0 update to the trakt addon in XBMC, I love the two way syncing system however, when I want to rewatch a tv series I can't make use of the XBMC "watched" feature which is a pain. This happens because if I mark the tv series as unwatched (to start tracking my XBMC progress again) it will automatically mark it as seen upon next load.

          I often watch videos on different systems so the two way syncing is like an angel from heaven, however I think that some sort of system on…

          • Private messaging

            Sometimes I want to exchange ideas with a user and can not. You could also put a message box or a small part "hidden" so that we can communicate. How about?
            So it would be easier to make friends and ask for opinions! :-)

            • Search in "Tvdb" "tmdb" direct link ?

              Hi

              When a tvshow or movie is not found on trakt, could you add a direct link for searching on other sites databases. As the title is already entered ?
              Thanks

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

                  • 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…

                    • "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.

                      • 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…

                        • Allow users to add any show they want to the 'on deck to watch' category

                          For example if I'm watching a show that I have previously watched, it won't show up on my 'on deck to watch', but if there was an option to allow users to add any show they want onto the 'on deck to watch' category it would be better and more convenient for us.

                          • TV & MOVIES : RATING CAST !

                            sometimes we fall in love with character in show average or below even so it would be great to rate charcter in the show for his performance , for example :
                            Eva Green from penny dreadful ,
                            Zach McGowan from black sails
                            Bobby Cannavale from boardwalk empire .. etc

                            so all of asking is every show and movie has a cast and we can rate their character in this specific show ...

                            sorry for my bad English ...

                            • Add TMDB as an alternative to pull TV data

                              I've been using trakt a lot, I have a lot of different shows on my progress list, and recently I have started to notice that TVDB has some stupid rules, and don't allow certain shows to be added.

                              I propose that there should be a way for a specific show to pull its data from TMDB instead, that doesn't have those stupid rules, I don't know how hard that would be to implement, but since the website already pulls the data for movies from TMDB, I hope not a lot.
                              In last resort case, there should be a way to…

                              • 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

                                • Show awards (and maybe nominations) on films / shows / profiles

                                  It could for example be shown by a logo associated with the "competition" in color when won and in gray-scale when only nominated. A caption would be shown with the details (best actor, etc) when hovering. The logo would be on the film or show when on a profile, with a count at the top of the page. When on a film/show it would be either at the top when for the whole show or on specific actor/season.

                                    • Making network groups

                                      Making network groups for sharing Ratings, Collections, Comments etc

                                      My idea in general is to add an option for making public/private groups. On these groups there we will be this features:
                                      - Share each member's rating, see the average rating between all the members and compare it to the general ratings.
                                      - Share statistics.
                                      - Private discussion for each movie/tv show, only between the members.
                                      - Share recommendations.
                                      - See each member collection.
                                      - See "people watching now" only from the member of the group.
                                      etc...
                                      * Join members, Admin could confirm new members

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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!
