  1. Time watched by network in Year in Review/All Time Stats

    Currently, Year in Review and All Time Stats show the number of shows per network. However this does not correspend with the time watched.
    For example, I watched HIMYM from CBS and Gavin & Stacey from BBC Three.
    HIMYM has a runtime of 3 days, 1 hour and 14 min. while G&S has a runtime of 8 hours and 53 min.
    That's quite a difference yet both circles are the same.
    Is there a possibility of changing this so the stats are more accurate?
    Perhaps this could be an option in the settings: TV Networks sort: Time watched vs. number…

      No plans to change this unfortunately. This section is similar to all the other TV show sections (genres, countries, years) in that it counts the unique number of shows. If we counted the time, it would skew things quite a bit if you’re watched shows that have run for a long time.

    • Reset just one season

      Would it be possible to add a button under Progress and each season (under "View seasons") to Reset progress? Right now it is only possible to Reset progress for the whole show, as far as I can see - but for some shows I only want to rewatch a specific season (which I like better than the other seasons).

      • Offer VIP Monthly Option!

        It's important you consider this - there isn't any reasonable reason that I can think of why you wouldn't support this. It can be handled by your payment processor, without work overhead for you.

          No plans to offer a monthly option unfortunately. We used to have a monthly option, but very few people signed up for it and it is much more common for payments to fail when charging monthly.

        • Cloning a Collection list

          It'd be nice to be able to clone another users "Collection" list. Not their personal or watchlist.

          • Remove cover

            I couldn't find a way to remove the cover I set previously.
            If I wish to get the default red background back...

            If it doesn't exist yet I would suggest to add a "Remove" link below the title of the cover (episode, movie,..)

              The easiest way is to open a private support ticket and we can clear it out for you. It’s not a common request to remove the cover, so no plans to add a link for now.

            • SSL For Trakt.me

              Not a huge deal, but I was just curious if you guys could look into getting an SSL certificate for the trakt.me short URL redirect? I know it doesn't make much of a difference due to it simply being a redirect, but just thought I'd ask.

              The new https://letsencrypt.org CA is free, easy to use, and backed by the likes of Mozilla, Google, EFF, etc.

              • Most Watched Directors

                Can the section "Most Watched Directors"in the year in review be only about the directors of the movies and not showing the people in layout, Production Design, scrip supervisors, .... ?

                    You need to have a Chrome App presence, so that those of us who don't trust Paypal would have a way to become VIP through the Chrome App Store. A dedicated Chrome App would be very nice to have on ChromeBooks

                    • Watched Feed should be valid ATOM feed.

                      When trying to validate my watched feed (http://trakt.tv/users/goodevilgenius/history.atom?slurm=XXXXX), I get the following errors:

                      • Make the profile subsections more prominent, maybe on a second top bar

                        Don't hide the subsections for your personal stuff behind a mousehover submenu, but make them clickable in a real menu from within the frontend.

                          When viewing your profile page they have their own nav bar. I don’t think we’ll add them to the main navigation since that would be too overwhelming.

                        • Payza as VIP payment

                          More payment options like payza.

                            • VIP without a yearly subscription

                              It would be nice to have an option for VIP membership without a subscription attached.

                              So you can just get one year and won't be surprised if next year is automatically charged when you don't want it to.

                              • Free trial

                                I know, I know, for $2 I could try out the VIP features, but then that requires me going in and cancelling a subscription in Paypal and well, a bit of an inconvenience. Plus who doesn't like try before you buy. I suggest a 2 week to a month trial of some VIP features, mainly, no ads, early access to features, customization, push notifications, and iCal.

                                  Since VIP is also to help support the site and cover server costs, this isn’t something we have planned at this time. Like you mentioned, the monthly option is to help with people who prefer not to buy a full year at a time.

                                    Would be nice, if you could get little bit more speed for websiteloading if you are a VIP member. then it would be worth it for real
