  1. Trending and friends by location

    Would be nice to be able to filter the trending movies and shows by location (country,region,city), and also to find friends nearby

    i live in italy and i have no idea how many people use trakt.

    another thing could be importing imdb trending.. (maybe you already do that), and box office data

    • Anticipated TV shows (add trailer icon)

      Hi,

      Thanks for having updated the anticipated items with Network and start date.
      I think if there is a trailer associated to the show it would be great to see it with a little icon. It does not necessarily need to be a video link to the trailer.

      • Graphically present timeline of watched/collected episodes

        I think it would be cool and useful if the progress bars in the watched/collected screens was filled by what episodes you've seen, so that if there's a 3 season show, and you've seen season two, the 33% of the bar filled would be in the middle of the progress bar. Gives a nice one-look view of whether you are missing any of the latest episodes.

        For a graphical representation, see https://www.dropbox.com/s/j5wdnn22x58c9w1/trakt-idea.jpg?dl=0

        • Web App / Offline Support

          Today browsers are getting more and more features to really feel like normal apps.
          One of the really exciting new features are Service Workers. They basically allow the caching of content locally which means that the website can even be opened without an internet connection (and loading the website in general would be faster and save bandwidth).
          Along with some other features (like Push Notifications) the trakt.tv website could feel like a normal application.

          I guess it would be good to go in this direction because it's easier to enhance the website instead of writing 2 completely new native Android…

          • Provide an option between the default grid view and a simplified list view for your history

            I want to be able to see all the shows/movies I've watched, at a glance, in a simple vertical list, rather than in a large grid. The vertical list should be sortable by title, date started, date completed, number of episodes watched, etc.

            • Add runtimes to user history RSS feed

              Adding runtimes to each entry in the user history RSS feed would make the feed far more useful in IFTTT.

              I'm looking at sending entries to a specific Google Calendar (rather than loading the iCal feed into a separate calendar). I believe this format will work for Google Calendar quick entry in IFTTT: "1 hour 30 minutes".

              Thank you!

                • Dashboard News for Show/Season

                  Hi,
                  I really like the new implementations that have been made on dashboard (on deck to watch/upcoming schedule), I find myself hardly in need to go on calendar anymore.
                  I had an idea for another block on dashboard, let me know what you think of this :
                  News for shows you are watching that would let you know the changes in said shows, for example when you get the information a new season has been ordered/renewed or when a show has been cancelled/ended. I do believe it would be extremely useful. Especially for some - a little unknown - shows…

                  • Add Plot Keywords. User can thumbs up if agree. Info taken from www.themoviedb.org

                    On TV Show/ Movie information pages you can add a list of Plot Keywords. For Example: post-apocalyptic , superhero , future .
                    This information should be available from www.themoviedb.org

                    I would think it would be cool to also add a user thumbs up for each keyword on the info page. So the users can decide which keywords fit the best from themoviedb list. You can then show the more favored ones differently then less thumbed up ones.

                    • Users can add recommendations on a movie/show page -along with a comment-

                      Like the way MyAnimeList.net does. people can post recommendations and appear in the movie/serie page like the comments does.. the recommendations with more likes show up first.

                      this can replace the actual recommendations system, which, obviously suck.

                      • Get notifications from followed friends

                        When I follow a friend is because I want to know what they watch.
                        I can go thought the network and find out but it would be nice to have some sort of notification system like facebook that shows what have your friends watched recently that we don't know about.

                        • Edit watched status by date (in case of client glitch)

                          A misbehaving client can quickly mark thousands of movies or episodes as marked, incorrectly. To undo this takes considerable manual time. Since an error like this occurs quickly at once, there should be an option to unwatch everything watched on a specific date. This would allow a quick and easy solution for a major issue.

                          (In this case, I believe a dog sat on my keyboard. By hitting "W", it marked hundreds of movies as watched, wrongly.)

                          • IFTTT playback status and scrobble triggers

                            I would really like to IFTTT triggers such as:

                            - Movie playback started
                            - Movie playback paused
                            - Movie playback resumed
                            - Movie playback finished
                            - Movie scrobbled
                            - TV ep playback started
                            - TV ep playback paused
                            - TV ep playback resumed
                            - TV ep playback finished
                            - TV ep scrobbled

                            These could be used for all sorts of things such as triggering Hue lights to dim/turn off/turn on etc. during movie playback. Or adding the name of movies I watched together with the date I watched them to a Google spreadsheet.

                            Any chance this might happen?

                            I know…

                              I love the idea, but its going to take IFTTT wanting to do a deeper integration with Trakt. I’ve reached out a few times before, but maybe if users also message them it will get more traction.

                            • Progress Page On Actors/Actress Profile

                              When you go onto an Actor/Actress profile there should be a progress meter similar to the TV show one where it would tell you how many of the movies you have watched of the actor. This could also include a hide watched function. For example, If I were to go onto Chris Pratt's page it would show that I have watched The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy. It would also say that I have watched 2 out of 25 things he is in. There could also be another function to filter TV Shows and Movies. Thank you.

                              • Add filter for most popular(most followed/commented...) user lists

                                One thing I would love to see coming back from old site is the popular
                                lists section where you could browse through most popular (liked/followed/commented) user lists. In the past I used this to discover some great movies this way! Example for a former popular list:
                                http://trakt.tv/users/_varg/lists/great-movies-you-may-have-never-heard-of

                                I know that I can use the search to look for personal lists using:

                                http://trakt.tv/search/lists?q=afi

                                But there's no way to filter for most followed lists (month/year/week) as far as I know. What do you think?

                                • Delete history from a specific date

                                  I recently had an error (probably a problem with an app) and during a single day, my episode play count for all my shows doubled/tripled! I know you can remove the watched statuses one by one, but as I now have thousands of watches in one day, that is just impossible! Also, removing the watched for the entire show is just as absurd! Is there a way to remove all of your plays/watches of a specific date (say Feb 20), so I won't have these extra watches messing up my record? If there isn't, is there a way to implement…

                                    well. im talking about search prediction like google has, when u type something and automatically the site suggest the rest of the search and the list is presented under the search box, its really missing, pretty easy to add (:
                                    example :

                                      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…

                                        Official Lists should be brought back I used to like looking to see how many of the IMDB top 250 movies I had seen. Along with box set lists of movies that are together such as Star Wars.
