  1. 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)…

    • Native Friend discovery

      Rather than making Friend discovery dependent on 3rd-party social platforms, please implement native Friend discovery. One solution would be comparing tastes and ratings and film viewings between users and letting users discover & add each other that way, similar to Last.FM's Neighbors feature

      • More than one collected format of an item

        As of right now you can mark a item as collected with one type of metadata bluray/dvd/digtal ect.
        Myself I have multiple editions of a movie like a bluray and a dvd or bluray and digital copy or all of the above.
        It would be nice to either be able to mark a movie/tv show/episode as collected more than once.
        Like watch history with a view all button and the best quality shown on the main page.
        Or be able to select more than one option under format.
        I personally prefer the former because it represents what is an entirely…

        • Additional options for profile boxes

          It's very minor, but I think it might be nice to have more options for the boxes on your profile. I marked my ideas per what the boxes currently are on the profiles.

          ABOUT BOX
          Featured comment/review of your own choosing.

          MOST WATCHED MOVIE
          Random movie from your history. It changes on refresh.
          Featured movie of your own choosing.

          MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
          Random TV show from your history. It changes on refresh.
          Featured TV show of your own choosing.

          I think little stuff like this makes it a little bit more personal.

          • Specials progress in air date order

            Currently, special episodes in Watched Progress is shown after all season episodes is completed. Is it possible to use the air date order? Some specials aired in the middle of season...

            • Preview comment before publishing

              When trying to do "fancier" tricks with Markdown, it's not always clear if the rendered result will match the desired effect. The thing I miss most when writing comments on Trakt compared to places like GitHub is the ability to preview what I've written, as it will appear after posting, before publishing it.

              • Viewer's Milestones

                Hello
                I have small idea - special page in profile, where user can observe they milestones for using trakt.tv.

                • Follow a List

                  Would be nice, if there a way to follow a User List or import the list to the watchlist.

                  Sometimes we see great lists... but always need to return to the list to see non-watched movies, etc...

                  • Differentiate a first-time watch from a rewatch on the Recently Watched sections of user profiles.

                    When taking a glance at the recently watched sections of a user's profile page, it's easy to assume that the user has just watched the movie/show for the first time, even if that user originally watched said movie/show a long time ago. I think that it's very important to distinguish the difference between a first-time watch and a rewatch as they are very different experiences for the user, and that maybe adding a rewatch label/icon or giving the option to hide rewatches from the recently watched sections would be a good idea.

                    • Trakt podcasts/radio shows

                      The ability to trakt podcasts or radio shows would be fabulous.

                      • Add the option to skip episodes in your progress tracking

                        It would be useful to have the possibility to skip a single episode or season. For example, it is useful to make some special episodes you will never watch disappear from the progress view.

                        This is different than dropping a show because you may want to skip one episode but be sure of being notified of the next one.

                        • Translate website, movies, and shows to other languages

                          It would be really nice, if you let people translate the website but that's not so important for me...
                          but i found that the movie titles are only the english ones, for example the movie "the inbetweeners" is in german "sex on the beach" and so i couldn't find it first because i didn't know that!

                          • Add more achievements and badges

                            I think there should badges for such things as watching a series premier on day one, 10,000 episode watch, watching complete series, guilty pleasures, etc.

                            Way to get users better tracking their watch counts

                            • Mark multiple episodes watched/collected

                              I would like to be able to see a list of episodes with checkboxes next to each so that I could quickly mark what I have seen or collected. For example, I might have seen a full season except one special episode and it takes too many steps to mark this.

                                Compare your movie collection with someone else (friend or just another community member). This would show a list of the movies the other person has that you don't.

                                • Community lists (or moderated lists)

                                  Allow for lists to be moderated or have an option for a community list.

                                  Moderated list: Allow an author of a list to add moderators. That would allow for the others to make changes to it. And as a further feature allow someone who isn't a moderator to submit an entry for the list. Examples of this could be a list for season previews, festival entries or genre lists.

                                  Community list: This could be a list where everyone is allowed to submit one recommendation as for something like "community recommendations" or voting on lists; "trakt's favorite movie of 2012" etc.

                                  • More specific privacy controls for sections

                                    Another one to get more open profiles: Let users choose what information they are showing. There have been instances where previously open lists suddenly got private etc. This would still allow users who are not too eager to show things like their collection or maybe watchlist to others to at least have something public (ex. lists).

                                    • TMDB Episode groups

                                      TMDB went ahead and made episodes groups available in the API. TVDB failed kinda hard with their V2 and has this feature nowhere with an ETA. Would it make sense to implement them anyways based on the corresponding TMDB#? The major issues will most likely be things containing specials but the same already holds true with today's mappings.

                                      • Hide Seasons (or specific episodes) in the Calendar

                                        When you hide a season from your watch next, it still appears on your calendar. If you try and hide it on the calendar, it hides all of the episodes for the show. This would be great for picking up a show partway through a run, or dropping a show if you want to stop watching.

                                        • Custom genres for anime

                                          You previously added some genres based on keywords on trakt. I would like to propose the following to be added to that list, primarily having anime shows in mind:
                                          - Harem (http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2859) (could be handled as romance but shows usually have no "winning" girl)
                                          - Slice of Life (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2864) (imho the biggest one since "drama" doesn't fit at all)
                                          - Mecha (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2638)
                                          - Ecchi (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2856) (could be handled as "erotic" to cover regular content too)
                                          - Romance (TMDB has yet to create this as a genre for TV shows..)
                                          - Horror (same..)
