Guys, we're still working on it. We're aware of these issues and we're working on it now. The calendar page will get more views to accommodate everyone. We're working on server stability issues currently and then we need to port over everyone's custom lists. Please, please be patient. The v1 servers weren't able to stay up and we decided to pull the trigger on v2 rather than put valuable effort into a dying platform. Nearly all of the original site's features are going to be added throughout the next few weeks. In fact, I haven't seen an issue raised that we're not planning on adding.
Also, if you don't have anything constructive to add, please keep it to yourself. We've worked hard to create something. We're not going to put v1 back up. Help us make it better, not tear our work down.
Another case where an "update" is just code for downgrade
out of all the things that could have been improved, features that could have been added you guys managed to "fix" what wasn't broken. Seriously I don't see any improvements in v2. I will miss my old single-page progress page the most. But I don't want to demoralize, I still love trakt <3 Have a happy new year!
lol there are always little brat never happy... i personnaly like the new design and if you are complaining about the performance issue just wait they are still applying the update so of course it will be slow just wait for it ;)
I loved this site so much because of the "progress" page! I could easily organize the unwatched episodes, hide the completed or ended shows and because of the little pictures I could see these on one page. But now, I can't organize them, the "hide completed shows" button disappeared too and because of the big pictures, I have to jump from one page to another to see all of the shows. Before 2.0, I could also hide shows and they didn't appear at all, but now I can't do this either. This was my favourite page on this whole site, and now it's gone. :(
And besides these, the site became really slow.
I use the calendar function a lot and — from what I can see — functionality is *vastly* reduced compared to pre-upgrade.
There’s no way to go back to earlier days (to see if I’ve missed anything), or indeed forward beyond a week. There are no popups to tell me what the icons mean.
I used to be able to show my shows, all shows, new shows and season premiers. That’s been reduced to my shows and new shows.
The big new poster icons for each show might look nice, but on a day when there are a lot of programmes on, this is surely going to mean a huge amount of scrolling? I can’t verify this as I can’t move backwards or forwards through the calendar (see above) to check!
Overall, it *looks* lovely, but the reduced functionality is a huge backwards step ☹
awful, just god awful. If the calendar doesn't work then i have no use for the site. I dont want to see what is on today or tomorrow i want to see what i missed in the past few days or week.
I WAS vip. No sense in that if the site remains the way it is.
Remember Newer is not always Better.
Is there any way to set preferences for the calendar display as in the old site? The new calendar is rather useless. Only shows one week, not even a chance to scroll to preceding / following weeks and it doesn't show watched shows.
After clicking on a link you don't get any feedback whether the page is actually loading... for paranoid people like me this makes the browsing experience rather unsettling :P
I also agree that the site is much slower right now, but this might be a matter of ironing out the kinks after deployment.
All in all it seems as though the site was redesigned to make it work on mobile devices, but the desktop experience has been absolutely neglected.
It does look pretty, though. But I would rather have the old site back unless new functionality is added to this one.
Doesn't connect to either XBMC or SeriesGuide anymore which means no scrobbling and no syncing which renders the whole site pointless. I don't care about what the site looks like, it needs to actually track what I watch. So far it is incredibly slow and simply not doing what it is supposed to. And I've been patiently waiting for more than 12 hours.

doesn't work on my iPad or android phone
My lists are missing,missing :( Can only see the watchlist, freaking out hoping it is only a temporary mistake
Site is painfully slow.
Also before I used progress/title to see all my currently being watched shows on one page. Now it shows them over 260 pages with no way to filter out those that have finished, wtf.

- on most pages, the "mark as watched" button doesn't work
- where is the release history?
- some movies are not visible on my watchlist, but when I search them it says it is on my watchlist. When I try to remove it, I get an error message.
- it is really, really slow
