We have a lot of support tickets and are working to update the site and issues as fast as we can. If you don’t get a reply right away, it’s not because we’re ignoring you, but because we are working on updates. Thanks.

How can we improve Trakt.tv?

  1. Differentiate a first-time watch from a rewatch on the Recently Watched sections of user profiles.

    When taking a glance at the recently watched sections of a user's profile page, it's easy to assume that the user has just watched the movie/show for the first time, even if that user originally watched said movie/show a long time ago. I think that it's very important to distinguish the difference between a first-time watch and a rewatch as they are very different experiences for the user, and that maybe adding a rewatch label/icon or giving the option to hide rewatches from the recently watched sections would be a good idea.

    • More specific privacy controls for sections

      Another one to get more open profiles: Let users choose what information they are showing. There have been instances where previously open lists suddenly got private etc. This would still allow users who are not too eager to show things like their collection or maybe watchlist to others to at least have something public (ex. lists).

      • Add the option to skip episodes in your progress tracking

        It would be useful to have the possibility to skip a single episode or season. For example, it is useful to make some special episodes you will never watch disappear from the progress view.

        This is different than dropping a show because you may want to skip one episode but be sure of being notified of the next one.

        • Compare your movie collection with another user

          Compare your movie collection with someone else (friend or just another community member). This would show a list of the movies the other person has that you don't.

            • Tag your collected items

              Give us the ability to tag movies, series and episodes in our collection, using tags.

              Tags can be marked as private, seen by friends or been public, like it's happening with lists.

              Tags can also have their own unique custom color and can be manipulated through Trakt's API.

              An example would be to tag some movies for their location in user's library, i.e. in HDD #3 or in BluRay #41. If someone want to do the above example now, using lists, s/he would end up having an enormous number of lists.

              Another example would be to indicate the format (i.e.…

              • Smart lists

                I think it would be great if you could implement smart lists similar to the smart playlists in iTunes so you could create dynamic playlists with say actor X and actor Y in category Z. The playlist should automatically update when new content match the filtering.

                • UK Airdates

                  Can you in addition to selecting your timezone actually set what country you watch in and then pull the appropriate air dates of episodes in from tv rage/thetvdb.

                  E.g. I live in the UK so 2 broke girls is 8 episodes behind but i'd like to be able to track it consistently with the UK so i'm not seeing episodes that need watching that haven't even aired yet (at least not locally).

                  An option to toggle this on or off for different shows (as some won't have relevant air dates - because tvrage/thetvdb hash't been updated or because it doesn't…

                  • International airings and EPG data

                    Would it be possible to specify the user country, so that in the calendar we can see the airings adapted to the local channel sets?

                    For example, FOX Spain airs new episodes of top shows a week later than FOX US, due to (I think) translation and legal issues.

                    • IFTTT playback status and scrobble triggers

                      I would really like to IFTTT triggers such as:

                      - Movie playback started
                      - Movie playback paused
                      - Movie playback resumed
                      - Movie playback finished
                      - Movie scrobbled
                      - TV ep playback started
                      - TV ep playback paused
                      - TV ep playback resumed
                      - TV ep playback finished
                      - TV ep scrobbled

                      These could be used for all sorts of things such as triggering Hue lights to dim/turn off/turn on etc. during movie playback. Or adding the name of movies I watched together with the date I watched them to a Google spreadsheet.

                      Any chance this might happen?

                        I love the idea, but its going to take IFTTT wanting to do a deeper integration with Trakt. I’ve reached out a few times before, but maybe if users also message them it will get more traction.

                          • Community lists (or moderated lists)

                            Allow for lists to be moderated or have an option for a community list.

                            Moderated list: Allow an author of a list to add moderators. That would allow for the others to make changes to it. And as a further feature allow someone who isn't a moderator to submit an entry for the list. Examples of this could be a list for season previews, festival entries or genre lists.

                            Community list: This could be a list where everyone is allowed to submit one recommendation as for something like "community recommendations" or voting on lists; "trakt's favorite movie of 2012" etc.

                              Hi,

                              Trakt is growing bigger and bigger, with the new v2 it's obvious that you guys are a little bit shortstaffed.

                              It isn't easy to manage 800k users and this huge pile of data with 10 people or something like that. hence, there is a need for external voluntary help.

                              For example, you have GoodReads, it's a huge social network for books, it relays on a 'librarian' system where people can apply to be a 'librarian', a librarian can add books and edit current ones, add posters and stuff like that, then there's superior librarians who have more power and…

                              • Add more achievements and badges

                                I think there should badges for such things as watching a series premier on day one, 10,000 episode watch, watching complete series, guilty pleasures, etc.

                                Way to get users better tracking their watch counts

                                  • Movie Location & Friends

                                    I've been trying to clean up some movie tickets and I wanted to add the theater names, location, and possible who I was with.

                                    • Translate website, movies, and shows to other languages

                                      It would be really nice, if you let people translate the website but that's not so important for me...
                                      but i found that the movie titles are only the english ones, for example the movie "the inbetweeners" is in german "sex on the beach" and so i couldn't find it first because i didn't know that!

                                        • Viewer's Milestones

                                          Hello
                                          I have small idea - special page in profile, where user can observe they milestones for using trakt.tv.
                                          Milestones would be like:
                                          - watched 100 episodes,
                                          - watched 1000 episodes,
                                          - watched 150 movies,
                                          - watched 30 comedies,
                                          - watched whole [eg. Marvel Cinematic Universe] list,
                                          - spend 100 hours watching shows,
                                          - spend one month watching tv shows,
                                          - started watching [eg. The Big Bang Theory]
                                          - finished series: [eg. Strike Back]
                                          - created first list,
                                          - added 100 items to Watchlist,
                                          - friended 10 users,
                                          - had VIP account for 6 months.

                                          It could be also place…
