How can we improve Trakt.tv?

  1. Dashboard & Friends activity

    One area where trakt currently is severely lacking is keeping up with your "network"/"friends". The number of people you can follow before the dashboard looses it's usefulness is probably a mere 3 users. Capping out at 12 recent items is quite harsh. A single casual user these days can probably nuke that feed in an evening alone (watching, collecting, commenting, lists, etc.). Going above that you can pretty much scratch that area of trakt. If you want to find out what certain people are enjoying you are forced to click on their profile AND "study"
    their history (at least for…

    • search engine fault-tolerance

      If I may, I'd like to ask for a slightly more 'forgiving' search engine which gives us humans the opportunity to do what we do best - make mistakes or at least be allowed not to be 100% precise all the time about our input, for instance searches including release years "Life (2015)", forgotten dots instead of space characters "Life.in.Pieces" and even more obvious spelling mistakes, which trakt at this point really does not approve of (= no results).

      In my experience the IMDB engine does quite a good job in terms of 'fuzzy string searching' and I would love…

      • cast per season

        I've read this many times on the VIP forum but couldn't find any tickets here.

        I think we should really set cast members per season or at least the main characters.

        Many times I look for an actor and I can't see in his actor grid the TV Shows he played because the character no longer plays in that TV Show.

        So in fact the grid only shows movies and tv shows where the character is still in play (or if he only plays in the last season it's ok)
        Which I sadly find not relevant enough.

          • Hide "completed and ended" shows

            I know there are various ways to hide shows on the progress page. But if I use"hide ended shows", it hides the ones that are ended but I haven't completed yet so I can't keep tracking on them. If I use "hide completed", I can't see when the new episode will be of them. So it would be great if you could create a button which hides shows that are both ended AND completed at the same time. This way I could see everything I am interested in right now on my progress page.

              Some heavy lists (1000+) are sometimes a bit too much for the browser and could be more usable if paginated

              • Add % of episodes watched in comments

                I find very annoying to look for reviews of a show only to see people have given it a 1/10 after watching just the pilot. So I think it would be nice to display, next to the comments, the % of the series seen (just like, for instance, MyAnimeList does: see https://myanimelist.net/anime/9253/Steins_Gate/reviews for example). That way we can see that someone who has seen the full series may have a stronger opinion to give.

                • "Favorite Genres" Pie Chart on Profile Page

                  Can the color scheme of the "Favorite Genres" Pie Chart on the Profile Page be different colors instead of "50 Shades of Red" ;] Or possibly in the settings the user can decide which colors they want their genres to represent for the profile page pie chart.

                    • Search and accentuated characters

                      We should be able to search without accentuated characters and see a result with. I've search for "Oscar Campo" without result because the first letter is accentuated in trakt (from its source). I need to know it's written "Óscar Campo" to find him.

                        It would be nice if the writers and producers were displayed in addition to the director and actors on movie pages.

                          • Fit More Items Horizontally on Mobile Site

                            When you are using Trakt on mobile you have items 2 each row in lists, search and actor pages.
                            While this looks and works great when you are vertical, horizontally each item has trouble fitting the screen.

                            Vertical
                            https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B9oF0PQyfXGBa3I1aEg0ZmpLaklxM2dtTU9zY1E1TE5BVXU4

                            Horizontal
                            https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B9oF0PQyfXGBZVBaU212b05VSnppYjJJOEhoSmoxNjhwNzdv

                            So if you had the amount of items per row increase when you are horizontal to about 4 the interface would seem less cramped.

                            Thanks

                              I would like to have the option of hiding some network suggestions on my Inbox. The people suggested are friends on Facebook but their accounts is pretty much not used, so it is annoying to follow some "dead" account just because you want to clear your inbox. If this feature could be added it would make the experience even better.

                              • Specials not showing in Up next to watch, even though it's the next aired episode

                                I have the Include Specials option in the Watch Progress settings checked ( https://i.imgur.com/bHRIVv3.png ). The show I'm watching ( https://trakt.tv/shows/the-thick-of-it/seasons/all ) has 3 specials between Season 2, which I recently finished watching, and Season 3 ( https://i.imgur.com/MyGsq6a.png ). However, the next episode to watch, in my Progress page ( https://i.imgur.com/c7Am7dm.png ) and the Dashboard ( https://i.imgur.com/56tQvIB.png ), is the Season 3 premiere.

                                  The checkbox currently only applies to the overall percentage calculation for the show. We’ll need to update how progress calculates for the next episode.

                                • Swipe scroll the banner image

                                  When on a season view of a show, trying to scroll down from the banner picture is impossible. It loads the main show site rather than scroll when using touch devices. With a nexus 5x in landscape you can't scroll down because almost all the screen shows the banner and swiping activates the link to the show page.

                                  • Hidden items - small bug

                                    https://trakt.tv/settings/hidden

                                    When I have the *same item* in both Calendars and Watched Progress & On Deck, and I click to restore the item in Calendars, the similar item in Watched Progress & On Deck is fading away too, but when I refresh the item is back in Watched Progress & On Deck.

                                    looks like a small bug...

                                      It would be nice if there was a way to set your default Collection viewing options. There is a place to set settings for Collection progress, but unless I'm missing it, there's no way to set preferences for the Collection itself. Currently, it defaults to All Types by Recently Collected... for me, it'd be more useful to show Shows by Title every time I see my Collection (thankfully, it does that on Kodi where I primarily use my Collection, but it would be helpful not to have to reset my view every time I go to it on the website).…

                                      • Chrome Extension: trakttvstats

                                        Hi !

                                        I made an open source Chrome extension to add some functionalities to the website that was missing for my use.

                                        It adds dynamic charts on people pages with personal statistics & complex filtering, to have a precise overview on what you've seen of the filmography of the current person. In addition to the stats candy, it's really a way to navigate in someone's work trough the user own history.

                                        It also adds translation of movies titles, information and posters in the language of your choice (trough TMDb) and enable the addition of links to any websites in the…

                                            Planning to add this back. It was removed since it was unclear to most users what it was even for. Still figuring out the best way to display that info.
