    Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.

    This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.

        I also think this is a great idea. It would help clean up my "progress" in exodus kodi. I have more than a few duds I'd like to get rid of.

        Yes, absolutely. Maybe not drop it off the radar completely but get it out of the 'must watch' list.

        this is what hannah posted: and its perfect for what i want!
        This is exactly what I've been looking for. The option to specify that I have seen however many episodes of a show, but chose to not continue watching it. For example, watching the pilot but not liking it enough to go any further (while still being marked down so I don't forget about it and try to watch the show again later).

        Or, as a better example: watching several seasons of a show and deciding that it has gone downhill and no longer having any desire to see the remaining episodes. Trakt continually reminds you that you still have X number of episodes to watch even when I don't want to watch them, I'd like to be able to mark them down as "crap I have no interest in any more so please stop showing them to me".

        so plz add this dropped abandoned idea in this way would be great

        It'd be nice to have for a personal record. For instance, if I come across a show I dropped some time in the future, I can look and see that I dropped it instead of wondering why I didn't finish it and avoid wasting my time and interest.

        The interesting part of this idea is not the ability to hide the show from your "watched progress", but the stats of how many people have abandoned a show.

        I think that a nice implementation of this idea could be to have a special list "Abandoned" in which I can insert the shows I've abandoned.

        (Sorry for my bad English)

        i think it would be interesting to see this and the stats where other users decided to abandon a show

        This feature seems to be an "opt out" approach where you selectively remove shows you don't want to show up on deck.

        What would be easier for me is to have an "opt in" approach in which only collected series show up on deck.

        Any chance that this is already possible and I just can't find the appropriate settings?

        It would be great if we had this, one because it could be helpful as someone said to "send a message" to show producers about dropped shows, second because of external apps that use our trakt account (e.g DuckieTV) etc and also so those shows are taken out of consideration for recommendations, sometimes you watched the first 3 episodes of a show and it sucked so I don't want to have related recommendations for it.

      • Vicky commented  · 

        Thank you. I'll look into this.

      • AdminJustin Nemeth (Founder, trakt) commented  · 

        @Vicky we expose the hidden items for apps and plugins to use, but it sounds like whichever you are using might not use that data to hide within their app. I would recommend sending a feature request to the app developer.

        I use Trakt to sync two kodi devices and want to remove tv shows from my Trakt library once watched, or remove tv shows I've added in error. Each time I remove them from my collection or watch list they are still appearing in my Trakt library on my devices.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Neat, I was wondering why I couldn't find this options for months, now I know :) Please add.

      • Matt commented  · 

        I hide some serie from my "on desk" and i still show it in my "upcoming schedule"... :(
        Mark show as abandoned will be a very nice feature !

      • J. J. Cole commented  · 

        It would definitely be great to be able to see on a show page how many users started watching it and gave up.

      • Gabriel Amorim commented  · 

        I think only hide isn't enough. Many times this function doesn't work properly, plus, it will be great send a directly massage to anyone interested (watchers or producers): I watch all that episodes and I think this material does not deserve my audience anymore. That will be an efficient way to say how bad this show are or became

      • Koby Dill commented  · 

        I hid some shows on the progress page but they still show up on dashboard as upcoming and I can't seem to remove them.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Yes, please. Not having a "dropped" option has been bugging me since the beginning.

      • yuzuchan commented  · 

        I'm just now starting to use Trakt, so perhaps I'm doing this wrong/just getting accustomed to it, but to me, ideally, it would be best to have a "dropped" status that aggregated somewhere.

        For example, if selecting the option to drop a show, the progress to date would be retained it in the progress page (but perhaps not have it count towards overall progress?), it would be removed from calendar and dash, but also automatically be added to a "Dropped" list/tab which contained all the shows abandoned by the user.

        In a perfect world, I would actually venture to say it might be best if there were three separate tabs or prefabbed lists within a user's profile page, one for each of the three main show statuses:
        1) Active (what I am currently watching; populates in the calendar, progress page, and dash)
        2) Pending/Planned (what I plan on watching; populates on progress page and dash, but does not get added to calendar until moved to active)
        3) Dropped/Abandoned (what I've given up on; retains any progress data [but perhaps filterable on the progress page], removed from dash and calendar)

        Just my two cents, but I would guess most users have shows they've dropped--or even just put on hold--but eventually go back to and they want to keep the data on what they've done so far. Hiding it entirely just makes us forget about it. So alternatively, the ability to exclude a list from the calendar might serve the same function. Would just be a bit more manual on the user's end.
