How can we improve Trakt.tv?

Watched items to automatically hide from Watchlist and other lists

Great service by the way - looking to promote all our users to switch over and use the VIP package as it's needed for our user base.

May have a bug first though on this account. We believed that items added to History/Watched list should disappear from other lists such as the Watchlist. This dosn't appear to be happening. We have of course flushed dns/cache/logged out, etc but to no avail.

Any ideas? Obviously the inability to automatically remove watched items from the other list, kinda negates the notion of it's purpose.

Many thanks for a potentially great service and here's to hopefully sizably bumping up your paid members numbers.

Warm regards.

        Yeah, the watchlist auto removes items once you watch them, but custom personal lists does not do that. We don't have any plans to enable that for personal lists.

        Collections is for items you own on blu-ray, dvd, or digitally. It is a list of items you have locally and available to watch.

        Personal lists can be used for any purpose you'd like: top 10 lists, the marvel timeline, etc. The discover page has some good examples and featured lists for example.

        NO BUG UPDATE:
        This appears to have 1/2 rectified itself now as watched/history items are now automatically removed from the watchlist as expected so no bug!

        Unfortunately, watched/history items are not removed from the other lists which confuses somewhat as to their purpose over the use-cases of collections.

        EDIT:
        Should have mentioned we have done many other standard troubleshooting steps for example, different browsers, PC restarts, fresh browser installs, safe mode, etc

        Also, have just noticed another forum post regarding the same issue re removing watched items from the Watchlist and other lists. It was declined as being "too server intensive" which I must admit, we did find quite surprising upon realising the post was only 2016. I can only hope we are right in assuming that some/multiple server upgrades would have been likely since then, thus this minor load requirement would be obsolete these days?

        Should for some reason your dev-time roadmap not have facilitated this yet, we'd be happy to test the load for free if it were integrated on this account; should you care for a team that provided proficient analysis/feedback. Not only is this feature mandatory for our sizeable user-base who would be requiring the VIP package, but as more of the general public are 'cord-cutting' it would be a necessity for the bulk of those new users alongside the current set.

        Keenly looking forward to your response.

        Warm regards.
