  1. Remove games

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

    These lists might help with removal:

      • Sort Watchlist by Network

        I think it would be really useful to be able to sort the watchlist by network/streaming platform. I personally plan to sign up for a streaming platform and watch all the programs they offer at that time in order to save money-knowing what is available on that platforms would make this process even easier!

          • Concise History

            Make "History" a nicer, concise list of your viewing activity. Letterboxd does this perfectly with their "Diary" page. Trakt's "History" page is close, but the icons for each ep/show are too big so you have to scroll down a lot and hit "next page" in order to see what you watched in just the last week, let alone last month/years. Simply show the date watched on left, then a small scaled show icon, title of the show and the episode title. That's it... on just one line. Clean and simple. Thanks for the consideration!

            • Year in review : most viewed actors/... slightly inaccurate

              So basically I watched all the Harry Potter movies in the same year.

              And I see Tom Felton, Robbie Coltrane, Alan Rickman as most viewed actors of the year.

              see : https://imgur.com/a/p4zIJGW

              But shouldn't I first see Daniel Radcliffe & Rupert Grint ? It would make more sens since they are the main actors in those movies.

              So what I'm asking here is to have the actors with the same amount of movies viewed reordered with some logic ? Some average maybe on how often they are main actors in the movies we saw them in.

              • Additional options for profile boxes

                It's very minor, but I think it might be nice to have more options for the boxes on your profile. I marked my ideas per what the boxes currently are on the profiles.

                ABOUT BOX
                Featured comment/review of your own choosing.

                MOST WATCHED MOVIE
                Random movie from your history. It changes on refresh.
                Featured movie of your own choosing.

                MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
                Random TV show from your history. It changes on refresh.
                Featured TV show of your own choosing.

                I think little stuff like this makes it a little bit more personal.

                • Caavo Integration

                  Caavo is an amazing device to be able to control and watch media from multiple sources. I was an early adopter of the Caavo "Classic" which I traded up for the much faster and smaller Caavo Control Center. I enjoy using it every day, but wish that it would do a better job at tracking shows and consolidating "what to watch next." If Caavo and Trakt worked together it would be a home run.

                  • this is a miniseries/two-parter but TVDb doesn't seem to have it/think it's a movie.

                    https://trakt.tv/movies/alice-in-wonderland-1985

                    it's removed on TMDb and only as a TV series. I improved the data just now. But well, TVDb doesn't have it/want it; https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?t=19887

                    • 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…

                      • Hide Episode Ratings in the Progress page

                        You can already hide screenshots, titles and overviews and I would like to hide the ratings for the episode on the progress page. I hate when I'm watching something and I see it has like 92% rating so I know its a good episode and when I watch the second one and it has 70% rating so I know that it's more boring than the other one so I just stop watching the show. I want to hide the rating percent so I don't know what's coming.

                          • Audio Recognition

                            I believe that it was some type of Yahoo app a couple years ago but it used to be able to listen to the audio of a television show or movie and identify it based on the sample. Would be neat for easier scobbing. Not sure if it can be done directly on the website or would have to be some type of app.

                                Instead of having to click "SEE MORE", we could just press a left or right arrow that would show everything we have on "Up next to watch".

                                • 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)

                                          Working on a fix so clicking outside the popup closes it. I think closing it when a source is clicked is a little too far since we don’t know if that’s what the user wants to happen.

                                        • Bath edit plays / history

                                          When I joined Trakt, I set a bunch of movies/shows I had watched to Release Date if I didn't know the date, but I realized later this messes with my stats more than I'd like. I'd love a bulk edit option (i.e. remove plays before X date) until the indeterminate date option is added.

                                            No immediate plans to add this to the website. For now, the Trakt API can be used to batch edit. There are also some 3rd party tools out there which might help with this too, although those are mostly to help clean up duplicate plays.
