    • 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…

      • Add a "watched up to this" button

        Add Seen up to this episode/season button, please, it is a core feature IMHO.

          • 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

            • Import checked list from icheckmovies

              As a new user who has found in love with this website (you guys rock!) one thing I would love to do would be to merge my checked movies into trakt.

              I cant possibly force myself to go after over 1500 movies, so an import option would be ginormous good news for a user like me. Icheckmovies and maybe other sites provide export lists, so in theory it isnt to tricky.

                  Be able to figure out among friends which movie I have that nobody have seen. (Perfect when you are planing a movie night, and you are able to suggest movies people haven't seen yet)

                  • 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", ...

                      • TV listing + guide

                        So I watch a lot of tv shows in one day it would be cool if u add a tv guide only for the states and canada or any other major country like that I know that if I miss an episode at 10 I could watch it at 12 I know this is a long term project and most probably get declined but it would be cool to have everything under one webdite

                          • Custom Rankings

                            I kind of find the "totally ninja" and "weak sauce" rankings to be somewhat... confusing. (For instance, when a tweet got sent out that I gave an episode of Breaking Bad 'totally ninja,' it was received with more confusion than anything).

                            Since we all have different tastes and subjective opinions on how we feel about television and film, I was wondering if there was a way custom rankings could be implemented? Where we could edit the 1 and 10 rankings ourselves, since I'd call an episode that gets a ten "Perfect," but somebody else might think of it more as…

                            • After signup, optimize new user flow to add all the movies I've seen

                              The first thing I want to do after signing up is to add all the shows and movies I've seen. This isn't really accommodated very well with the current flow. I would expect the option to view all movies in the db (with various sort options - alpha numeric at least). I'd also really expect the option to hide all movies I've seen from all search results (featured, trending, full list, etc.) to help me get it done. Since I'd want to add literally thousands of movies to my Seen list (valuable data that you want me to enter), you…

                                Just how you can sort for the most popular television shows and movies, it would be nice to also bring up the most popular actors, directors and other cast members.

                                • 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.

                                    • Watch a TV Show or Movie with a friend

                                      Often times, I don't watch movies or TV shows alone, but with friends. It would be nice, if only one person would check into a movie/show and mark the others. That way you could not only track which shows/movies you have watched, but also with whom.

                                      If you would like to make things more complex, you could link a foursquare profile to your trakt account and check in (movies/shows) those friends who are checked into the same venue as you are. But that's maybe over the top ;)

                                      • [idea] "My Top 10" default user list

                                        What do you say about a list called "My Top 10" that every user has by default.
                                        The max count of items on that list is 10, no more.

                                        Use case could be a page like http://trakt.tv/movies/popular where the most favored items of all trakt members are displayed.

                                        This way we could narrow the many thousend of popular items to a top 100.

                                        • Privacy: hide watch times

                                          I've had several friends complain about Trakt that altough they like being able to see what TV Shows and Movies other friends have watched, they don't like the 'time' being displayed.

                                          They have no problem inthe information showing they watched XXX on Tuesday, but they have a problem when it also says they watched at 11AM.

                                          Probably because of privacy issues. Maybe then don't want friends knowing they're at home watching TV instead of working, or at 3AM watching TV.

                                          I believe there are lots of strong and compelling reasons to make Times an toggle, and user can decide to…

                                            Interesting idea. We’ll look into this, the main challenge is not only hiding from the website, bu also the API. The activity API specifically is largely based around timestamps of all the various actions.
