  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Exclude shorts in Most Watched Movies

    Exclude short films to showing up in the Most Watched Movies panel. (Because shorts can be watched so many times.)

  9. Turn "Up next to watch" on the Dashboard into a sideways scroll

    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".

  10. 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.

  11. Preview comment before publishing

    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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. Change Most Watched TV show

    Change the most watched TV shows to most amount watched (runtime) instead of most amount of episodes.

  15. 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…

  16. 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).

  19. Show user's rating when displaying item in user's context

    I find it really interesting to see how other users have rated a movie or show and how they rated others. Unfortunately, trakt currently only surfaces this information sparingly (AFAICT only for friends on an item's page and in a user's ratings tab). This is especially apparent when browsing the site while not logged in.

    It would be great if trakt could show a user's rating when a movie or show is display in a user's context, i.e. on their profile, history, lists etc.

    E.g. the profile already shows a user's recently watched episodes and movies and that would be…

    Good idea. I think this makes the most sense to add under the image, similar to how the ratings page does it. Replacing existing UI elements won’t work too well.

    Also, the user’s rating is already attached to any comments they leave for an item.

  20. Add notifications for “friends starts watching” event

    Add Desktop/Pushover notifications on friends activity.

    For instance, when I am following someone I like to keep track of what they are watching to see if there's something interesting for me.

    Instead of only exploring my friends' activity on my dashboard I would like to receive real-time notifications when they start watching a movie or episode.
