  1. Insufficient data refreshes

    Just to touch up on http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/11258295-schedule-movie-refreshes and other things regarding the data refresh. Tbh I have seen little improvement regarding data quality on the site. Really sucks hard that any upcoming movie or newly airing show has a big chance of being "incomplete" or running with subpar artwork. There really needs an additional update job besides the update time on their respective source for the refresh.

  2. Episodes in grid format on Progress page

    Hello,

    There are only 6 "Up-To-Next" episodes on home page and personal progress page only shows episodes on right side as list.

    It would be really great see them like the watchlist so it will be easy to decide watch shows to watch.

  3. Gigantic automatic lists are getting out of hand

    For a while now different developers or even individual users have been creating ginormous lists with thousands of items but with only three featured on each entry these tend to block everything out since they are also more likely to reach someone else that might throw them a like. Are there any plans to deal with this? Can we hide, re-categorize (non-personal) or downvote lists against this? Some of these serve no purpose other than actually bypassing advanced filters I'd argue or being pinned on kodi dashboards on dubious box setups I'd say...

    Here are some examples of this:

  4. Block/mute users to hide their comments

    Has comments moderation ever been applied?
    I would like the option of blocking or muting some users.

  5. Reject duplicate plays to history

    I don't do regular housekeeping of my trakt data and things are prone to get messy due to various bugs in apps and plugins but I'll always end up with duplicate plays at some point. Many of those end up going from check-ins to plays at the same timestamp which shouldn't get accepted as valid by the site at all imho or at least end up getting merged. Despite not not being advertised outside of some support threads and a single kodi forum thread I end up getting a lot of visitors on my duplicate removal script (500+ last year)…

  6. Will Trakt ever decide to use TMDB episode information if there is none on TVDB?

    I love trakt. And I love TMDB. I contribute a lot to TMDB and think it is much better of a site and a community and more user friendly than TVDB. I understand that TVDB probably has a more comprehensive database for series compared to TMDB (I think TV shows are only a fairly recent addition to TMDB). However, contributing to TVDB is much more arduous than to TMDB, especially when it comes to getting incorrect data changed. The TVDB forum is fairly dead and slow to respond, me as a user have no idea if they keep track of…

  7. Sort episodes in descending order by number after sorting by date

    I like to mark episodes as watched with the release date, for aesthetic and personal reasons, but episodes from Netflix shows and episodes that aired in the same day (like the Friends finale) have the exact same date, which results in my history being messed up, because it shows that the last episode I watched was the first episode of the season (or the first episode of the two aired episodes in the case of Friends).

    So why not sort the episodes in descending order by number after sorting by date? I don't see any reason for this not to…

  8. Add the possibility to hide watched hour

    Hello Justin,

    It would be awesome to have the possibility to hide the watching hour of a TV Show/Movie.

    I currently have my profile public meaning that any person can know what I watched and also what hour was that.

    You might not want your boss to know that you spend the morning watching movies, hehehe :)

    In my case the info is being added from Plex using the Trakt extension.

    Thanks!! :D

  9. The "see more" of the "up next to watch" section should hide completed series

    In the dashboard, in the "up next to watch" section there is a "see more" link. I have my preferences set to "least time left", so that link points to /progress/watched/least-time, but "least-time" is pretty much useless as it sorts the shows starting from the completed ones.

    It would be good if by default it could hide the completed shows when coming from the dashboard (or some other logic that makes sense). Currently, my choices are to either turn it around and sort by "most time left", or filter out the completed ones (for my use cases it's not that…

  11. Import watched status from Netflix csv

    Hi, from my account in Netflix I can download a csv of everything I've ever watched and the date I watched it. It would be tremendous if I could import all that into Trakt. Even better if I import is more than once, it shouldn't duplicate - such that I can do it periodically.

  13. Ultra-Basic Calendar view!

    Personally in an ideal view i'd have just a single line per show with in-line tick to confirm if a show has been marked collected!

    The calendar has been improved greatly of the years, thank you, I currently have it set as basic as possible with a grid with no pictures and filtered to only display my shows in progress.

    I'd love to take this further, and be able to have a ultra simple text-only at-a-glance calendar view of multiple 4-5 weeks at once, where i could scroll through the weeks vertically like a calendar app.

    The Settings page could…

  14. Up next determined by air date

    Currently, the episode shown to watch next is based on numerical order, so e.g. 4x20 will follow 4x19 - makes sense, of course.
    But if there was a special that aired between these episodes, it will not show up as the next episode, which does of course get especially annoying when the specials are important to the plot of the series, for example Sherlock or Doctor Who.

    So what I'd love is that the "Next episode to watch" on the Dashboard and the Watched Progress page are (maybe optionally) based on the next episode that aired after the latest episode…

  15. Trakt rating breakdown

    It would be great if Trakt ratings could be broken down to how many users choose each rating. A Trakt version of this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3829266/ratings?ref_=tt_ov_rt

  16. JustWatch does not include BBC iPlayer as a streaming source for Top Gear

    Top Gear (https://trakt.tv/shows/top-gear) is available to watch on BBC iPlayer, but this is not reflected by JustWatch. For reference the Top Gear iPlayer page is https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b006mj59/top-gear

  17. Allow database mods

    Allow trusted uses that are hand picked to remove duplicate data on the site. Would take a lot of the workload of doing so away, and it would help clean up the site.

  18. Create a folder/list of lists

    I like to keep my series/doramas/animes/variety or reality shows organized by status (currently watching, dropped, priority, freezer etc), but my lists get a bit messy since they're all mixed up.
    If I could create different folders for each, I think it would make things easier.

    And I know it sounds like a feature not many people would use, but it's worth the try.

    Thanks anyway.

    ^^

  19. Movies/Episodes/TV Seasons/TV series Getting Removed

    The main reason I, and I suspect, many others, use, and love, this website is that it is a near perfect tool to keep track of one's watch history. Seeing as that's the most important thing (to me anyway) I would love it if our accounts could get a little notification everytime a movie entry or tv show (or an episode from a tv show) that we've watched gets removed from the trakt database. Just so that we're aware of the things that are no longer accounted for in our watch history. Rather than 5 years later trying to find…
