  1. Hide Listed in Movie and TV Search

    In the movie and TV search, when looking at Trending/Popular/Watched/Collected/Anticipated (and Box Office for movies), I'd like to be able to browse by Hiding Listed movies. This way I can discover more new movies easier. When I'm only able to hide them, I have to scroll through many grayed out pages, and it can take awhile to get to anything new at all.

    • how about movies that are re-aired over multiple nights?

      I'm not sure, but there's a Dutch movie called Redbad (which totally bombed), that is being aired over four nights in the Netherlands. Does that mean you want it on Trakt as both a series and a movie?

      https://trakt.tv/shows/redbad
      https://trakt.tv/movies/redbad-2018

      I also asked on TVDb what their stanze is on even having it in their database:

        • Reelgood providing bad data

          The data coming from Reelgood on what is available where is incorrect. For example:

          https://trakt.tv/search/movies/?watchnow=netflix&genres=fantasy,science-fiction&years=1880-1989

          That query (Sci-Fi/Fantasy on Netflix released before 1990) gives 8 results - but two of them (*Batteries Not Included and The Neverending Story) are not available on Netflix.

          Similar issues with Amazon Prime showing results that are simply not available.

          I checked over at Reelgood, and the problem is clearly on their end as they're displaying the same wrong results. But it does render this feature of trakt pretty useless. Can anything be done from your end?

          • Remove Foute Vrienden S04E08

            Hi,

            Please remove Foute Vrienden S04E08. It never aired.
            On TheTVDB there are already 2 request from October '18 en November '18 to remove that, but the moderators don't do anything about it.

            Thanks in advance.

            • Incorrect network data

              It seems TVDB doesn't support multiple networks anymore...
              TMDB does.

              For example
              Netflix picked up two shows

              Money Heist (previously Antena 3)
              Lucifer (previously FOX)

              but all the previous episodes (from the former network) are shown as been aired on Netflix. So at the moment data is incorrect and it changes the values in Year in Review for example.

                • this is a miniseries/two-parter but TVDb doesn't seem to have it/think it's a movie.

                  https://trakt.tv/movies/alice-in-wonderland-1985

                  it's removed on TMDb and only as a TV series. I improved the data just now. But well, TVDb doesn't have it/want it; https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?t=19887

                  • More ways to close "Watch Now" modal dialog

                    The "Watch Now" modal is very tedious to dismiss. The "X" is quite small, and there's no other way to close it.

                    Closing it when the user clicks/taps outside the box would help, as would auto-closing it when the user clicks/taps on one of the streaming sources.

                    This is somewhat related to https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/32424703-change-modal-windows-behavior (so if you want to merge the two, that's totally understandable)

                      Working on a fix so clicking outside the popup closes it. I think closing it when a source is clicked is a little too far since we don’t know if that’s what the user wants to happen.

                    • Filtering lists by Advanced Filters

                      I have Trakt VIP and access to Advanced Filters. I can filter shows via parameters like 'network' or 'watchnow', that are appended to URL.

                      Would be possible to support similar advanced filtering for lists. I tried adding same parameters to URL, but it didn't work.

                      For example I have watchlist consisting ~40 shows. I would like to see shows produced by Netflix. So I'd like to use:

                      https://trakt.tv/users/franiis/lists/watchlist-shows?sort=released,asc&networks=Netflix

                      (some UI could be usable, but support for URL should be easier and faster to add).

                      • Show user's rating when displaying item in user's context

                        I find it really interesting to see how other users have rated a movie or show and how they rated others. Unfortunately, trakt currently only surfaces this information sparingly (AFAICT only for friends on an item's page and in a user's ratings tab). This is especially apparent when browsing the site while not logged in.

                        It would be great if trakt could show a user's rating when a movie or show is display in a user's context, i.e. on their profile, history, lists etc.

                        E.g. the profile already shows a user's recently watched episodes and movies and that would be…

                          Good idea. I think this makes the most sense to add under the image, similar to how the ratings page does it. Replacing existing UI elements won’t work too well.

                          Also, the user’s rating is already attached to any comments they leave for an item.

                        • Flag inaccurate or non-existent content for removal/correction

                          There have been numerous movies I've found that may be in the process of being made, but somehow they get a bad release date, and then they show up in my feed.

                          For example, "I, Robot 2" is listed as coming out on June 15, but obviously it's not. https://trakt.tv/movies/i-robot-2

                          It'd be nice if there was a "report inaccurate information" link. I've already tried the "Refresh Data" link a week or two ago, and nothing happened.

                            I would like to add HDR format as metadata in my collection, like HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision and HLG. If a movie has no HDR it could be set to SDR.

                                • Import TVDB AKA's if no TMDBid is linked

                                  (or do that always anyways).

                                  Currently you only import AKAs from TMDB. There used to be some AKA titles from TVDB in the past but not anymore. Would be great if those would at least be searchable if no TMDB entry is existent.
