  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. 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.

  3. Beavis and Butt-Head

    Hi

    I know this has been posted before and i thought this will get seen if i make it a new post.

    Currently on Beavis and Butt-Head season 8 is just the same as season 7 episode 20+ because on Beavis and Butt-Head there is no season 8, season 8 is the movie, can it be deleted from trakt so it matches TVDB.

  4. 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

  5. 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!

  6. 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 ;).

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Import TVDB AKA's if no TMDBid is linked

    (or do that always anyways).

    Currently you only import AKAs from TMDB. There used to be some AKA titles from TVDB in the past but not anymore. Would be great if those would at least be searchable if no TMDB entry is existent.

  15. 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…
