  1. Flag deleted TVDB shows

    Trakt relies a lot on TVDB for shows. Sometimes TVDB has duplicates which eventually get fixed. But when that happens, these dupes are still available on Trakt.

    I suggest coming up with a notification system that warns when a show has a TVDB entry disappear. Who would get notified? Well, mostly you guys, since you're the ones with the ability to remove dupes. Maybe you could also add a warning on the show page that the TVDB entry is gone and that Trakt admins are investigating.

    This might cut down on dupes and the constant reports about them.

    Note: this…

  2. Wrong runtime on several series;

    SpongeBob SquarePants has the runtime set up wrong. The show usually aired (for exemple, the 3 firsts) 3 (or 2) episodes at once, gathering those, it would make the right 23 minutes. In case of the 3 first, 2 have 11 minutes and one has 1 minute. But, on Trakt, all of then have 11 minutes.

    And, the specials for Simpsons are, too, wrong.

    Would apreciate if this was fixed, thanks!

  3. Issue with conflicting TMDB and TVDB import

    I've noticed at least one example where a show having different season delineation on TVDB and TMDB has lead to the seasons being named incorrectly.

    For example: One Piece Season 3 runs from episode 31 to 47 on Trakt and TVDB. However it is incorrectly titled "Drum Island Arc" which comes from TMDB. This is because season 3 on TMDB runs from episode 78 to 91 (which is correctly titled Drum Island Arc).

    Is it possible to prioritise one source for the information to avoid these issues?

  4. Please fix these entries

    Each one of these entries either has an incorrect TMDB URL, or shouldn't be listed in Movies as it is a TV-Mini-Series. They most likely have duplicate entries as well. If links are requested, I will do my best. But it would be nice not to.

  5. When episodes are moved on TVDB the episodes and associated plays are not moved

    As an example I watched a bunch of The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog episodes in 2015. Back then the episodes were split into 4 seasons, However since the all the episodes have with exception of the Christmas special have been moved into a single season. (see https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?t=57933)

    However, instead of the episodes being moved into season 1, they have been duplicated into season 1, so there are now multiple copies across the seasons (eg "Blackbot the Pirate" is now 3 episodes in two seasons - all with the same TVDB link)

    Since TVDB episodes all have an ID…

  6. Keep track of changes in ratings

    Currently, there is just one source for your rating of an item on Trakt. If you rewatch something and decide you don't like it as much and change the rating there is no way to see what your prior rating was - would be cool to see your ratings change over time.

  7. Update Will & Grace status

    https://www.thetvdb.com/series/will-and-grace
    Shows correct status and correct seasons/episodes including the rebooted episodes

    TMDB breaks these two out into separate series:
    https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/4454-will-grace?language=en-US

    and

    https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/74321-will-grace?language=en-US

    Because these are not 1:1 matches, the status in Trakt is incorrect.

  8. Make 'Data refresh' available for everyone (improves it for everyone ;)

    Hi,

    so I changed some shows in TMDB. I guess I could now manually refresh it in trakt. Wouldn't it make sense to allow this for everyone? Currently, I would have to inform you (or support) and they do it manually... if you could just tell all wrong show info complainers to go to TMDB, fix it and they just hit refresh when done, you will never have to fix something manually ;)

    thanks,
    chris

  9. Season Posters

    I think there should be system so we can upload and vote for seasons posters or movie posters, for "perfect" customization. Maybe a vote system once a week for VIPs or all users? Mainly i have 3 matching posters for 3 seasons for Fargo. A harmony in all banners and posters would be "great!" interface for Trakt.tv!

  10. Movie language matching with "original title"

    After coming by this too often:
    Please rely on the original title language from TMDB only as a fallback. It's wrong on tons of foreign movies due to the fact that the field was added just over a year ago.

    I would take the language field as the default and only if multiple languages are found do a comparison with the "original title". Wouldn't hurt to display all of them anyways though ;).

  12. Create lists from a CSV file import

    Before trakt, I used to have a list with all the titles I've watched and liked. It's painful to manually sync that list (thousands of entries) with trakt.tv

    It would be very useful to have an ability to sync them automatically.

  13. International airings and EPG data

    Would it be possible to specify the user country, so that in the calendar we can see the airings adapted to the local channel sets?

    For example, FOX Spain airs new episodes of top shows a week later than FOX US, due to (I think) translation and legal issues.

  14. standalone movie or Sherlock special or both ?

    Justin Nemeth (Founder, trakt) commented · December 16, 2016 19:17
    I fixe the 1st and 3rd, need to figure out the sherlock one since it has so many plays on it. It's somewhat of a "special" case since its not a normal episode of the show and does truly seem like a standalone movie.

    Keeping as both for now. It’s weird since this is actually a movie so I think it makes sense there. TVDB allows movies to be added as specials under the show which is why it is there too.

    We’ll have to figure out a set of “rules” in the future for this type of scenario.

  15. Futurama wrong episode pictures

    The Movie Database has the episodes listed in a different order to here, so all the episode pictures from season two onwards are wrong. The episode descriptions and titles seem to be correct, though.

  18. Tagging friends when checking in

    I was thinking about a function where you could (when checking in) to tag someone who's listed as one of your friends. This way would save time when two or more persons that have trakt account watch something together. I say that based on my own experience, when I'm with friends and everyone stops to check in. what would be easier if only one could do that and tagging the other. Of course, that would mean that would have to implement too some kind of mechanism where you would allow some people to tag you and later you could just…
