  1. Change Most Watched TV show

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. Allow to reorder Watchlist

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

  6. Progress Filters

    In Progress view, there are options to filter by Completed and Ended. However this filters as Completed OR Ended. I'd like for an option to filter as Completed AND Ended, so any that I have seen all episodes but is an ongoing series is still visible. And any that have ended but I haven't finished watching are visible.

    Thanks

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. A more personalized and complete list (Like MyAnimeList)

    What i find really annoying with using trakt, is the way you have to seperate shows or movies into seperate list for your personal "status" on that show (Like i need to make my own list for shows that i have dropped, have on hold or have completed (and you have the default Watchlist for shows you want to watch.))

    So what i think would immensely help organize our shows/movies, is to have a more "Complete list" of every show/movie and their own "Status", like they do on MyAnimeList. (Or we could just have a new system of "tagging" shows,…

  10. Flag inaccurate or non-existent content for removal/correction

    There have been numerous movies I've found that may be in the process of being made, but somehow they get a bad release date, and then they show up in my feed.

    For example, "I, Robot 2" is listed as coming out on June 15, but obviously it's not. https://trakt.tv/movies/i-robot-2

    It'd be nice if there was a "report inaccurate information" link. I've already tried the "Refresh Data" link a week or two ago, and nothing happened.

  11. Dashboard & Friends activity

    One area where trakt currently is severely lacking is keeping up with your "network"/"friends". The number of people you can follow before the dashboard looses it's usefulness is probably a mere 3 users. Capping out at 12 recent items is quite harsh. A single casual user these days can probably nuke that feed in an evening alone (watching, collecting, commenting, lists, etc.). Going above that you can pretty much scratch that area of trakt. If you want to find out what certain people are enjoying you are forced to click on their profile AND "study"
    their history (at least for…

  12. [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.

  13. Hide Seasons (or specific episodes) in the Calendar

    When you hide a season from your watch next, it still appears on your calendar. If you try and hide it on the calendar, it hides all of the episodes for the show. This would be great for picking up a show partway through a run, or dropping a show if you want to stop watching.

  14. "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.

  15. 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…

  16. «On This Day»-tab

    I love Trakt and would sign up for a VIP membership within seconds if an «On This Day»-tab was added.

    In «On This Day» you could 1) see what you watched on this day the previous years and 2) show which movies premiered and episodes broadcasted on this day (not ALL movies and episodes, but the ones that is in your collection or viewing history).

    I hope I explained this well enough to understand. Keep up the great work!

  17. search engine fault-tolerance

    If I may, I'd like to ask for a slightly more 'forgiving' search engine which gives us humans the opportunity to do what we do best - make mistakes or at least be allowed not to be 100% precise all the time about our input, for instance searches including release years "Life (2015)", forgotten dots instead of space characters "Life.in.Pieces" and even more obvious spelling mistakes, which trakt at this point really does not approve of (= no results).

    In my experience the IMDB engine does quite a good job in terms of 'fuzzy string searching' and I would love…

  19. Show what shows/movies you both watched when browsing someones profile

    Like on the Website MyAnimeList. When visting the history page of someone elses profile it would be cool to see a little statistics on top which shows how many shows/movies you both watched or rated the same.
