  1. Easier add to list functionality

    The list section is great, but lacking a quicker way to add films. An option in the UI at the top of the screen allowing checkboxes to add in bulk to a list would be very beneficial in building quick lists.

    I am currently trying to find a quicker way of reviewing my films I have seen and building lists for friends as must-watch films, but to add 300 or so movies is very laborious.

    • 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.

      • [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.

        • 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,…

          • Add tmdb movie collections

            When you lookup a title like
            When visiting tmdb and looking at a title for instance "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" it is shown it's part of the Star Wars collection.
            Also when visiting https://www.themoviedb.org/collection/10-star-wars-collection you can easily see which titles are part of this collection. I was thinking it might be handy that we could just click through to a collection and see which titles are part of this collection.

            • Ignore apostrophe and accents in search

              Right now if you search a title (e.g. "L'illusionista") without putting the apostrophe, the search will not find anything.

              It would be cool if the search API was more forgiving and simply ignore any missing apostrophe or accented letter.

              • Receiving Timeout when trying to load my Watchlist

                Over the past couple days I've been unable to load my watchlist. I always get a Cloudflare timout, either Error 504 or 524. I can navigate the rest of the site ok, but I cannot access my watchlist. As a little background, my watchlist has about 2100 items and is always a bit slow to load, but I've never seen these timeouts before.

                • 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…

                  • 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…

                    • Shows reappearing in Watchlist. Delete all button needed for the watchlist.

                      Every show in watchlist (260) are reappearing after being deleted. It’s too many and takes too much time to delete them one by one.

                      Watchlist NEEDS a delete all buttons. Not everyone is capable of performing scripts to mass delete items on a page via a browser console.

                      I’ve disabled any apps that were syncing with the watchlist. Please fix it!

                        • Custom genres for anime

                          You previously added some genres based on keywords on trakt. I would like to propose the following to be added to that list, primarily having anime shows in mind:
                          - Harem (http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2859) (could be handled as romance but shows usually have no "winning" girl)
                          - Slice of Life (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2864) (imho the biggest one since "drama" doesn't fit at all)
                          - Mecha (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2638)
                          - Ecchi (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2856) (could be handled as "erotic" to cover regular content too)
                          - Romance (TMDB has yet to create this as a genre for TV shows..)
                          - Horror (same..)

                          • Getting TMDBid syncs should request them from TMDB

                            I've added plenty of movies to TMDB over the years but always having to pull them onto trakt once first before they can be synced is not a great mechanic. I always end up having to sniff the missing ones out in the kodi debugg log... It would be great if the actual TMDBid's which are provided would at least get added to a queue of things to pull once.

                              • 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.

                                  • Up Next To Watch: use a list as a queue

                                    Hi

                                    I have a suggestion for the dashboard, a new section or an option to choose between my watching progress or a custom ranked list that would function as a queue of sorts.

                                    Obviously this is going to be a little tricky to implement because of the different types of items (movies, shows, seasons, episodes) but it would be very helpful not just as a queue but also as a tool to track the watching order of some shows. For example, I could close the X-Files Essential Episodes and have the first 6 items of that list show up in…

                                    • "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.

                                      • I'd like to be able to ignore users

                                        There are certain individuals writing WOTs for the lamest of episodes imaginable without saying much on a regular basis, or people deliberately spamming the comment section with multiple (different) >1k character comments (but 0-1min timestamp differences).

                                        I'd like to set a user to be ignored to not see his/her reviews and shouts (or replies). It's greatly annoying to see that a recent episode has like 6-9 comments in total whereas 4-6 are from the same person upon expanding the comment section.
                                        Or see yet another review talking hot air about redundant, petty things for thousands of characters, pretty much without…

                                        • Change modal windows behavior

                                          It would be nice clicking on the modal “backdrop” to automatically close the modal. Currently modals can be closed only with the [ x ] close link in upper right corner of the modals.
