  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Trakt rating breakdown

        It would be great if Trakt ratings could be broken down to how many users choose each rating. A Trakt version of this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3829266/ratings?ref_=tt_ov_rt

        • Filtering lists by Advanced Filters

          I have Trakt VIP and access to Advanced Filters. I can filter shows via parameters like 'network' or 'watchnow', that are appended to URL.

          Would be possible to support similar advanced filtering for lists. I tried adding same parameters to URL, but it didn't work.

          For example I have watchlist consisting ~40 shows. I would like to see shows produced by Netflix. So I'd like to use:

          https://trakt.tv/users/franiis/lists/watchlist-shows?sort=released,asc&networks=Netflix

          (some UI could be usable, but support for URL should be easier and faster to add).

          • Automatically reload page if connection to server is lost.

            I keep a tab open on Trakt in Firefox for Android at all times and come back to it whenever I need to file something as watched. Because of the caching system in Firefox (possibly just for Android?), sometimes the tab is being loaded from the local cache instead of from the server.

            When it does this, I'm no longer connected to the server, and trying to mark shows gives me an error saying "You are already signed in." To get the site back into working condition, I need to hit reload in Firefox to force it to establish a…

              Allow to reorder Watchlist in the personal lists page? It's not that important to be featured at the top.

                • Estimated Date/Time When I Will Catch Up/Complete This Show At The Rate I Am Watching Episodes

                  I have this as VIP since this is a little more complex but it would work fine non-VIP as well.

                  What I was thinking was that when you pull up a show's main page, it will show an estimate of when you will ether catch up or finish watching the show.

                  Here is an example of the math for it to work.... at least I think it works. But it should give you a general idea of how it may function.

                  Key:
                  b = Average time between episode plays for that show.
                  x = Time since last played episode for…

                  • [API] Users/watched to include number of seasons/episodes in show/season

                    The results from users/watched shows to include how many seasons are actually in the show, and how many episodes there are in the season.

                    Then it would be possible to calculate percentage the user has watched of the show without pulling information from every single show to make the calculation.

                      We don’t include this information for performance reasons. I’ll move this to researching, but I don’t think its something we’ll be able to do anytime soon unfortunately.

                    • "Most watched TV show" should be about total time

                      If I watch 10 5-minute-episodes, this doesn't really mean that the show should be prominently featured on my profile over a show with 8 episodes that are 1 hour each. How much someone likes a show is best shown by how much time they spend watching it; episode counts are arbitrary and favor sitcoms over real shows.

                      • Add a way to flag duplicates directly from item pages

                        Would it be possible to add some way to flag duplicates directly on the site?

                        For example adding a link "this is/has a duplicate" next to the "refresh data" that open a pop-up where you can enter a link to the duplicate/original of a movie/show, maybe even a comment if details are needed.
                        It would be easier and quicker for user to inform you about them and you could even see the links that are flagged more often and correct them first.

                        It would reduce the number of support messages and make duplicate/error signaling accessible to the less curious of…

                        • International Watch Now links

                          I find that when I click on the where to watch button and it says a show is available on Netflix, it actually isn't always because it seems to only be based off the American catalogue. So I was just wondering if it would be possible to make the where to watch location specific so if it says a program/film is available on a platform, it actually is

                          • Adjust "up next" episodes to be selected as earliest unwatched episode for people skipping around a series.

                            TL;DR: If I've viewed some episodes from season 1 and some from season 7, let me choose my "next episode" to default to the earliest unwatched episode (season 1) rather than the current default of the latest (season 7).

                            Shows without a plot (i.e. documentaries, sketch shows, etc.) are quite often watched out of order. For example, here's my viewing of ESPN's 30 for 30 series.

                            http://i.imgur.com/6N8GzKW.png

                            As you can see episode 3x03 is "up next" but I still have quite a few episodes before it in season 1 and 2 to watch. The true "next" episode for me to…

                                i'm a Trakt noob. when my favorite iPhone app completely shifted over to using Trakt for their backend, i had to create a Trakt account if i wanted to continue using it. so i did.

                                recently i learned that the Trakt website lets you also track Movie's & such too (yes, i had not visited the actual website until recently); so i began to explore the site & thought i'd start filling in what i've seen & wanna see etc.

                                i was astonished to find that i could NOT add any movies to the "History" & "Collection" areas without providing…

                                  Your points make sense, but as before this is still not something we plan on supporting. I’ll move this to researching, but I don’t anticipate changing this in the near term.

                                • Button report

                                  I believe that a button for reporting erroneous duplicate or registered titles would be good! For I have seen several series registered as movies and personal giving checkin anyway. And with the button would be easier to report, rather than being created topic here.

                                  • Specials not showing in Up next to watch, even though it's the next aired episode

                                    I have the Include Specials option in the Watch Progress settings checked ( https://i.imgur.com/bHRIVv3.png ). The show I'm watching ( https://trakt.tv/shows/the-thick-of-it/seasons/all ) has 3 specials between Season 2, which I recently finished watching, and Season 3 ( https://i.imgur.com/MyGsq6a.png ). However, the next episode to watch, in my Progress page ( https://i.imgur.com/c7Am7dm.png ) and the Dashboard ( https://i.imgur.com/56tQvIB.png ), is the Season 3 premiere.

                                      The checkbox currently only applies to the overall percentage calculation for the show. We’ll need to update how progress calculates for the next episode.

                                    • RE: Option to hide adult movies from search and site overall

                                      I've already opened a ticket about this (closed now) but if we're gonna just do it manually then it's going to be quite the long list. So here's what I'm suggesting...

                                      Since the issue here is TMDb's definiton of what constitutes an 'adult movie' (most of Tinto Brass' filmography is not marked as such, while most people would describe his movies as "porn but, like... with dialogue") a middle ground can be found in the tags of these movies (which makes them appear in the recommendation sections and search). So while, say, Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens is not…

                                        It would be nice if we could avoid posting duplicates on the VIP Forum or even make faster researches.

                                        • Most Watched TV Show

                                          On the profile page, the section titled:
                                          MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
                                          Is, or can be, a bit misleading. Example of what I mean:
                                          TV Show 1 (TV1) has 150 episodes
                                          TV Show 2 (TV2) has 20 episodes

                                          Now, I watch TV1 in its entirety, so that is 150 watches. Now I watch TV2, all episodes, 5 times. That is 100 watches. Now, the section titled most watched... will say that TV1 is most watched. Now TV1 has the most watches, because it has the most episodes, but really TV2 is the most watched as it has been watched 5 times…
