  1. Add movie studios to year review

    In the Shows Year in Review we can see how many shows we saw form each Network. It would be cool if we could do the same for the movies and see the Studios!

  3. Year in review : most viewed actors/... slightly inaccurate

    So basically I watched all the Harry Potter movies in the same year.

    And I see Tom Felton, Robbie Coltrane, Alan Rickman as most viewed actors of the year.

    see : https://imgur.com/a/p4zIJGW

    But shouldn't I first see Daniel Radcliffe & Rupert Grint ? It would make more sens since they are the main actors in those movies.

    So what I'm asking here is to have the actors with the same amount of movies viewed reordered with some logic ? Some average maybe on how often they are main actors in the movies we saw them in.

  4. Select preferred "Watch Now" services

    Reelgood, Trakt's (primary?) "Watch Now" data partner, could possibly provide this information somehow with an update to the existing two-way sync feature, if implementing Trakt's own UI for it isn't feasible due to available dev time etc.

    The main use cases I see are filtering lists and other views to show only content the user has access to through a service subscription, and prioritizing which two "Watch Now" buttons get the prime slot below the poster image on pages where that applies. (Right now, even shows that are available on e.g. Hulu display Amazon & iTunes purchase options there, forcing…

  5. Filter based on "Watch now" services that I subscribe to

    It would be great to extend the "Watch now" feature such that I can tell Trakt which services I subscribe to, e.g. Netflix and HBO Go, and have it apply a filter to only show items that are available from those services when viewing a list.

    Example, I favorited a IMDB Top 250 list and it would be nice to see what's currently available to watch so that I can start working through it.

  6. Slack / Discord / IRC

    I'd like to have some sort of live chat to interact with staff and other users of the community, especially for when big television premieres are happening. Slack would be preferred, but I wouldn't mind a Discord or IRC channel either. Perhaps make this a VIP perk.

  8. import user data

    I see there is an option to export data. Is it possible now or in the future where a user can export their respective data and later upload that data? Possible use is a backup of data prior to doing some testing, then to restore after ... pull the data to make changes then upload to send the changes to trakt.tv, etc.

  9. Sync data from letterboxd

    I use letterboxd for movies, and trakt for television. But my profile here would be more complete if it added my movies as well. Doing it manually each time, doesn't really make much sense, but if there could be a way for those two to sync automatically that would be great. Perphaps by using IFTTT and the profile RSS feed from Letterboxd.

  10. Easier CSV export/backup of multiple sections

    Make it easier to do CSV export of multiple setctions at the same time. E.g. add a tab in the profile where you can mark which stuff you want to backup then a backup button which will give you a ZIP file with the selected section's CSV files. Maybe even make to possible to backup automatically to Google Drive.

  11. [VIP] SET COVER is great, but...

    ...to find the perfect cover is very heavy.

    Please make an option on lists or elsewhere to change the view from poster/cover to fanart ;)

    and by the way, let me reposition the picture, like on facebook.

    greetings,
    chatterer

  12. Add runtimes to user history RSS feed

    Adding runtimes to each entry in the user history RSS feed would make the feed far more useful in IFTTT.

    I'm looking at sending entries to a specific Google Calendar (rather than loading the iCal feed into a separate calendar). I believe this format will work for Google Calendar quick entry in IFTTT: "1 hour 30 minutes".

    Thank you!

  13. Import from IMDb

    It would be nice if there would be a function to import my imdb watchlist into trakt, so I don't have to do all movies manually

  14. Import checked list from icheckmovies

    As a new user who has found in love with this website (you guys rock!) one thing I would love to do would be to merge my checked movies into trakt.

    I cant possibly force myself to go after over 1500 movies, so an import option would be ginormous good news for a user like me. Icheckmovies and maybe other sites provide export lists, so in theory it isnt to tricky.

  15. Create lists from a CSV file import

    Before trakt, I used to have a list with all the titles I've watched and liked. It's painful to manually sync that list (thousands of entries) with trakt.tv

    It would be very useful to have an ability to sync them automatically.

  17. Notifications for changes in lists

    It would be great if we could have notifications when a change is made to "liked" list.
    Therefore if i follow/like someone elses list and he makes a change or addition i would be notified, can see the change and for example want to watch as well.

    Good timing as we are beta testing new notification features right now.

    The trickest part for this request is including the changed items. For example, say I add 10 movies over a 5 minute period. Getting 10 notifications is overkill. So, we might have to simply notify you the list changed and then you can view it yourself.

  18. Family accounts

    I use XBMC, and make use of profiles for; myself, the wife, and the children.

    I would like the ability in trakt to create a family account, so we can all still have separate libraries and use different accounts to scrobble. However via the family account they are linked, so there is an overview of what we have all watched etc recently.

    Also, possibly the ability when viewing a family members activity to say "I watched this with them too" and have it show up in your feed as well. Or a popup in XBMC much like the rating dialog,…

  19. Please add "watch now" filter by services in personal lists.

    For example:
    I have Netflix subscription but I don't have HBO. I want to know in my watchlist what I can stream now using Netflix.

  20. Automatic Dark Knight Mode

    On twitter (at least the mobile app) you can schedule the night mode on 'automatic' so that it turns on at sunset and off at sunrise.
    Based on the Time Zone settings we chose I guess this could be possible

    Thanks

    Great idea and something I’ve been thinking about too. I would probably allow the user to specific their own start and end time, and possibly do something automatic if I can find a good way based on your time zone.
