    • Most Watched boxes customizable

      During my childhood I watched many animes such as Dragon Ball Z.
      If I check-in the seasons the TV Show becomes my most watched TV Show by far.
      Therefore this will never change since it has over 200 episodes and no new TV Shows today will have that much (I think)
      I would like to be able to add this TV Show in my watched list but don't think having it as my most watched TV show is really relevant.
      This applies for movies too.

      Suggestions

      - Allow in settings profile section to choose if Most Watched boxes should refer…

      • import user data

        I see there is an option to export data. Is it possible now or in the future where a user can export their respective data and later upload that data? Possible use is a backup of data prior to doing some testing, then to restore after ... pull the data to make changes then upload to send the changes to trakt.tv, etc.

        • Sync data from letterboxd

          I use letterboxd for movies, and trakt for television. But my profile here would be more complete if it added my movies as well. Doing it manually each time, doesn't really make much sense, but if there could be a way for those two to sync automatically that would be great. Perphaps by using IFTTT and the profile RSS feed from Letterboxd.

            • private profile public list

              I have a private profile, but would like to make one of my lists public.

              At the moment this doesn't seem to be possible. (Searches for the name of the list, already set to Public, does not return any results. If I go directly to the link of the list when logged out, what shows up is a message that the user is private, and not the public list.)

              • Movie sets/Sequels

                I would really love that when you're watching some movie's page it would show somewhere that is it a part of some movie set (sequels etc.).

                • Allow bulk removal of duplicate plays

                  Currently we can remove a single play for a single TV episode or movie. I think it would be great if we could bulk remove all duplicate plays from our entire collection.

                  When viewing content, I sometimes have to replay because of a streaming error, etc. This causes duplicate plays.

                  • Lock lists

                    Allowing lists to be "locked". So a movie can't be added or removed from the film page. It can be annoying when a list is "complete" (ex. a film festival or the Top X from year Y) and by mistake I add a movie who has nothing to do in this list because I clicked the wrong one. It hold no sense to propose me to add the movie to a list when the list is "locked" or "finished"

                    • use yours and a friends profile to find movies none of you have seen

                      Wouldnt it be awesome when trying to find movies to watch

                      1. pick friend/s to watch with
                      2. press a ''lets watch a movie button''
                      3. get a list of all the movies none of you have seen, with various ways of filtering it of course

                      this kind of goes towards having a more social and interacting Trakt, and a easy way to sell in trakt to your friends

                      • Differentiate a first-time watch from a rewatch on the Recently Watched sections of user profiles.

                        When taking a glance at the recently watched sections of a user's profile page, it's easy to assume that the user has just watched the movie/show for the first time, even if that user originally watched said movie/show a long time ago. I think that it's very important to distinguish the difference between a first-time watch and a rewatch as they are very different experiences for the user, and that maybe adding a rewatch label/icon or giving the option to hide rewatches from the recently watched sections would be a good idea.

                        • A options that you could subscribe or un subscribe from a show

                          For example: if i watch one or two episodes it doesn't necessarily mean i want to continue to watch the show. therefore if you want, you can subscribe to it or dont, so it would show in my progress page and in my calendar

                          • [VIP] SET COVER is great, but...

                            ...to find the perfect cover is very heavy.

                            Please make an option on lists or elsewhere to change the view from poster/cover to fanart ;)

                            and by the way, let me reposition the picture, like on facebook.

                            • Group episodes of a show that are marked as watched simultaneously on the history page

                              Marking a season of a show, or the whole show itself, as watched will display each of the show's episode on the history page. Imagine that on a show with 200 episode that you had watched previously, for example. You mark this show as watched and then you check your history. You'll have to navigate through a lot of pages that display the show's episodes and it's kind of an unpleasant experience, especially when you want to review your watched history.

                              • On Deck always shows latest episode of series to check into not last marked episode

                                I honestly don't even know if I'm describing this correctly but I shall try. I don't always watch shows from the first episode, especially if watching on TV. For the past month, when I check into a show that I have watched previously, if I check into an episode that aired BEFORE the episode I just checked into, it always shows the episode AFTER the one I checked into long before.

                                For example: I checked into The Andy Griffith Show episode 8x24 then started watching the show again from Season 1 and checked into episode 1x01 but my Recently Watched…

                                    Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.

                                    This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.

                                  • Disable rating for movies and episodes that won't be released in a month (or longer)

                                    I know you declined this for *all* movies and episodes that haven't been released, because you're not sure if the release date is correct, but could you at least disable it for more distant release dates? (not including episodes with missing dates)
                                    If you enable rating about a month before something's released (maybe earlier if that's necessary), you should be able to know if the exact release date is correct, right?

                                      Unfortunately this is still very hard to predict with earlier online premieres and different release dates around the world. I’d like to do this as well, so i’ll leave it to continue researching.

                                    • Official Trakt App

                                      It would be great to have an official Trakt app to mark shows watched and view upcoming schedules
