  1. 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…

    • 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

      • 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..)

              I've been trying to clean up some movie tickets and I wanted to add the theater names, location, and possible who I was with.

                Different from this one: http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/3599694-show-statistics-about-users-who-edited-and-added-i

                This is for user contributions to be tracked here. Meaning, duplicates reported, errors found, imported movies and shows, etc. On the same, those who contribute and help keep the Trakt database looking better might get some privs or something. When things are found like missing artwork or duplicates, since users cannot do refreshes on their own, they need to report the issue, which helps Trakt and its paid users, and all users.

                  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...

                  • Viewer's Milestones

                    Hello
                    I have small idea - special page in profile, where user can observe they milestones for using trakt.tv.
                    Milestones would be like:
                    - watched 100 episodes,
                    - watched 1000 episodes,
                    - watched 150 movies,
                    - watched 30 comedies,
                    - watched whole [eg. Marvel Cinematic Universe] list,
                    - spend 100 hours watching shows,
                    - spend one month watching tv shows,
                    - started watching [eg. The Big Bang Theory]
                    - finished series: [eg. Strike Back]
                    - created first list,
                    - added 100 items to Watchlist,
                    - friended 10 users,
                    - had VIP account for 6 months.

                    • 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.

                      • Idea: Community Moderators

                        Hi,

                        Trakt is growing bigger and bigger, with the new v2 it's obvious that you guys are a little bit shortstaffed.

                        It isn't easy to manage 800k users and this huge pile of data with 10 people or something like that. hence, there is a need for external voluntary help.

                        For example, you have GoodReads, it's a huge social network for books, it relays on a 'librarian' system where people can apply to be a 'librarian', a librarian can add books and edit current ones, add posters and stuff like that, then there's superior librarians who have more power and…

                                I think it would be great if you could implement smart lists similar to the smart playlists in iTunes so you could create dynamic playlists with say actor X and actor Y in category Z. The playlist should automatically update when new content match the filtering.

                                • 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.

                                  • UK Airdates

                                    Can you in addition to selecting your timezone actually set what country you watch in and then pull the appropriate air dates of episodes in from tv rage/thetvdb.

                                    E.g. I live in the UK so 2 broke girls is 8 episodes behind but i'd like to be able to track it consistently with the UK so i'm not seeing episodes that need watching that haven't even aired yet (at least not locally).

                                    An option to toggle this on or off for different shows (as some won't have relevant air dates - because tvrage/thetvdb hash't been updated or because it doesn't…

                                    • Compare watched progress with another user

                                      Compare your watchprogress with another user (like e.g. in steam).

                                      Would be nice to have the possibility to compare the own progress with one (ore more) other users side-by-side.

                                      Like http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/3595512-compare-watchlists-with-another-user- this could increase the social process, like whatching episodes, which both are missing together and so on

                                      • better list management

                                        better, easier, faster list management

                                        - manage lists together -> list with all cool tv shows, mark some for me, my girlfriend, which we want look together
                                        - other users can see what items are new on the list
                                        - read the summary and tag it
                                        - better communication when lists change, notifications for "new item added", "item changed by other user", ...
