How can we improve Trakt?

  1. Episodes in grid format on Progress page

    Hello,

    There are only 6 "Up-To-Next" episodes on home page and personal progress page only shows episodes on right side as list.

    It would be really great see them like the watchlist so it will be easy to decide watch shows to watch.

  2. Update Will & Grace status

    https://www.thetvdb.com/series/will-and-grace
    Shows correct status and correct seasons/episodes including the rebooted episodes

    TMDB breaks these two out into separate series:
    https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/4454-will-grace?language=en-US

    and

    https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/74321-will-grace?language=en-US

    Because these are not 1:1 matches, the status in Trakt is incorrect.

  3. Remove games

    It's quiet confusing when a list of movies also has some games mixed into it.

    These lists might help with removal:

  4. Trakt rating breakdown

    It would be great if Trakt ratings could be broken down to how many users choose each rating. A Trakt version of this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3829266/ratings?ref_=tt_ov_rt

  5. Twitter-like popover

    It would be practical to add a popover effect whenever someone hovers over the name of a series on a user's progress list, similar to how Twitter offers a popover preview of a user's profile whenever you hover over their names.

    It would serve to give you a short summary of the series, its overall rating, the genre and home network. Perhaps even include an "Add to watchlist" button within the popover to quickly and easily add the item to your watchlist.

  6. Sort Watchlist by Network

    I think it would be really useful to be able to sort the watchlist by network/streaming platform. I personally plan to sign up for a streaming platform and watch all the programs they offer at that time in order to save money-knowing what is available on that platforms would make this process even easier!

  7. Spoiler switch in the main menu or elsewhere integrated in the UI

    The same way there's now a fast switch for dark mode in the main menu (Dark Knight Mode), I think it would be interesting the have a quick method to turn spoilers on and off. For example, when browsing lists, specially when there are lots of special episodes, sometimes I need to click on several items to reveal their titles, because "Special 34" doesn't give as much information as "6x03", and it becomes tiresome pretty fast. Going to settings to temporarily turn spoilers off and later turn them on isn't ideal either. I think a switch where a single click…

  8. Improve PWA

    I'm an Android user and I've often searched for native apps that integrate with Trakt but I always end up returning to the Trakt website itself because it offers more features, is more robust & also is quite quick.

    For a better integration into the OS I always add the website to my homescreen to have the Chrome bar removed and have a separate entry in the Recents with the Trakt icon.

    Now over the last few years/months Google has improved upon this simple add to home screen feature and offered "deeper" integration.

    For example PWAs can show up in…

  10. Progress Filters

    In Progress view, there are options to filter by Completed and Ended. However this filters as Completed OR Ended. I'd like for an option to filter as Completed AND Ended, so any that I have seen all episodes but is an ongoing series is still visible. And any that have ended but I haven't finished watching are visible.

    Thanks

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. Collection Settings

    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).…

  16. How many movies have you seen from a specific person?

    I added this idea on vip forum, but might as well post here to for the general pop to see :)

    Its fun to know :

  17. Comments and Moderation

    I've written a rather short summary of my thoughts about the comments in v2 of trakt here: https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/7325147-a-little-feedback-about-comments

    Now, this was closed at the end of April with the comment saying the not finished, other things you'd "cover" in other tasks. So, 8 months later and nothing more happened.
    There's an even older suggestion about "community moderators" here: https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/6955017-idea-community-moderators
    That one is from January with a "Long Term" label.
    While I do not agree with the suggested application requirements, I still do think trakt definitely needs moderators for comments.
    And with moderators a way to message people directly. That would…

  20. The Where & The What

    I was throwing away my movie tickets (cus yes, I saved tens of them), and logging the dates I saw the movies with my friends. It was cool, reminiscing with the titles and dates and looking back to the good ol' days.

    My title describes what's absent from this already amazing website. We have the the when (dates) and the why (I'm assuming you like the movies you saw). But not the where and the what. Was it at a movie theater in Chicago? On demand at your house in florida, dvd, vhs, blu-ray?

    This would help recapture the memories…
