    • Will Trakt ever decide to use TMDB episode information if there is none on TVDB?

      I love trakt. And I love TMDB. I contribute a lot to TMDB and think it is much better of a site and a community and more user friendly than TVDB. I understand that TVDB probably has a more comprehensive database for series compared to TMDB (I think TV shows are only a fairly recent addition to TMDB). However, contributing to TVDB is much more arduous than to TMDB, especially when it comes to getting incorrect data changed. The TVDB forum is fairly dead and slow to respond, me as a user have no idea if they keep track of…

      • Create a folder/list of lists

        I like to keep my series/doramas/animes/variety or reality shows organized by status (currently watching, dropped, priority, freezer etc), but my lists get a bit messy since they're all mixed up.
        If I could create different folders for each, I think it would make things easier.

        And I know it sounds like a feature not many people would use, but it's worth the try.

        Thanks anyway.

        ^^

          • Incorrect runtime Doctor Who: The Five Doctors

            The original series Doctor Who Special 2 The Five Doctors is listed as Runtime 25 mins but I watched this yesterday and it is actually a feature length special with runtime 90 mins.

            • Improve PWA

              I'm an Android user and I've often searched for native apps that integrate with Trakt but I always end up returning to the Trakt website itself because it offers more features, is more robust & also is quite quick.

              For a better integration into the OS I always add the website to my homescreen to have the Chrome bar removed and have a separate entry in the Recents with the Trakt icon.

              Now over the last few years/months Google has improved upon this simple add to home screen feature and offered "deeper" integration.

              For example PWAs can show up in…

              • duplicate of a movie

                Hi !

                Here's one movie appearing twice :

                https://trakt.tv/movies/maigret-and-the-st-fiacre-case-1959
                https://trakt.tv/movies/maigret-and-the-st-fiacre-case-1959-09-02

                According to IMDB, the release date is 1959/09/02, and the second link (with the right release date) has a much higher view count.

                Thanks !

                Yohmi

                • TV Show "Release date" errors

                  There is a TVDB bug where a show's start date is not being pulled from the date of the first episode

                  so on Trakt if you sort a watchlist by "Release date" you get a load of shows listed at the top of the list which have no date.

                  Some of them have no start date as they haven't been announced which is fair enough, but others have begun and are running now, or even finished their season.

                  i've spotted references to it on the TVDB forums referring to a bug that is not updating the Release Date to the…

                                  It's quiet confusing when a list of movies also has some games mixed into it.

                                  • Create a Watching Challenge similar to Goodread's Reading Challenge

                                    I could explain this idea, but I think the Goodread's blog post ( https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/1130-read-more-this-year-with-the-2018-reading-challenge ) does it better than I could. Obviously this is a low priority suggestion and more for fun, but it does have an element of that newfangled gamification thing that was all the hype.

                                      When trying to do "fancier" tricks with Markdown, it's not always clear if the rendered result will match the desired effect. The thing I miss most when writing comments on Trakt compared to places like GitHub is the ability to preview what I've written, as it will appear after posting, before publishing it.

                                      • Select preferred "Watch Now" services

                                        Reelgood, Trakt's (primary?) "Watch Now" data partner, could possibly provide this information somehow with an update to the existing two-way sync feature, if implementing Trakt's own UI for it isn't feasible due to available dev time etc.

                                        The main use cases I see are filtering lists and other views to show only content the user has access to through a service subscription, and prioritizing which two "Watch Now" buttons get the prime slot below the poster image on pages where that applies. (Right now, even shows that are available on e.g. Hulu display Amazon & iTunes purchase options there, forcing…

                                        • More ways to close "Watch Now" modal dialog

                                          The "Watch Now" modal is very tedious to dismiss. The "X" is quite small, and there's no other way to close it.

                                          Closing it when the user clicks/taps outside the box would help, as would auto-closing it when the user clicks/taps on one of the streaming sources.

                                          This is somewhat related to https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/32424703-change-modal-windows-behavior (so if you want to merge the two, that's totally understandable)
