How can we improve Trakt.tv?

Find users with similar tastes and a high compatibility rating

kind of like the "neighbours" feature on last.fm, you get suggestions on who to add as a friend (people with similar tv show/movie taste to you) based on the tv shows, episodes and movies you marked as seen.

        Maybe you should also take into account that rating a movie 1 or 4 is not REALLY VERY different, both users mean to say "this movie sucks", while rating a movie 5 or 8 is something completely different.

        Hi, I see that there is a "compatibility"-rating when I open a profile now, but is there a way to list people with high compatibility?

        @Justin Nemeth, if you want, I am currently working on a recommendation engine for music. Shouldn't be too difficult to port. Do you have a dataset with ~1000 users data that I can use? (Sensitive data removed of course).

        All my votes. Not only would it be a great way to find new stuff to watch, but it would also be a great way to facilitate more interaction among users.

        Shouldn't be very difficult, you can use kNN to make this work. Only question is how good profile features are / can be made available in case of your website.

        When you search for a user you see the compatibility percentage already, so should be possible to search for users with same taste between a certain percentage.

        We could find people that has, for example, 80% or more compatibility with us.
