  1. 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

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

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • 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.

                  • 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…

                    • [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.

                      • "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…

                          • 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…

                              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.

                                  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…

                                    Would like to have tvshows watched in SlingTV tracked in traktv

                                    • Make 'Data refresh' available for everyone (improves it for everyone ;)

                                      Hi,

                                      so I changed some shows in TMDB. I guess I could now manually refresh it in trakt. Wouldn't it make sense to allow this for everyone? Currently, I would have to inform you (or support) and they do it manually... if you could just tell all wrong show info complainers to go to TMDB, fix it and they just hit refresh when done, you will never have to fix something manually ;)

                                      thanks,
                                      chris

                                      • Filter based on "Watch now" services that I subscribe to

                                        It would be great to extend the "Watch now" feature such that I can tell Trakt which services I subscribe to, e.g. Netflix and HBO Go, and have it apply a filter to only show items that are available from those services when viewing a list.

                                        Example, I favorited a IMDB Top 250 list and it would be nice to see what's currently available to watch so that I can start working through it.

                                        • Synchronize with iTunes and iOS watched status

                                          I watch movies and series episodes on my Mac or iPhone, and would really like to sync my watched statuses to Trakt.
