  1. Allow unknown watching date

    i'm a Trakt noob. when my favorite iPhone app completely shifted over to using Trakt for their backend, i had to create a Trakt account if i wanted to continue using it. so i did.

    recently i learned that the Trakt website lets you also track Movie's & such too (yes, i had not visited the actual website until recently); so i began to explore the site & thought i'd start filling in what i've seen & wanna see etc.

    i was astonished to find that i could NOT add any movies to the "History" & "Collection" areas without providing…

  2. Split time watched across days

    Over the last few months, I noticed that I've become really obsessed with finishing watching things before midnight local time to avoid messing up my dashboard graph with stats that appear on the "wrong day".

    It occurred to me tonight, after yet another movie finished just after midnight, that actually, software can solve this problem.

    I propose that Trakt take the timestamp and duration of each item played into account when generating graphs, such that if (as happened tonight) I finish a 126-minute movie at 0:03, 123 of those minutes still appear in the graph for the previous day, and…

  3. Slack / Discord / IRC

    I'd like to have some sort of live chat to interact with staff and other users of the community, especially for when big television premieres are happening. Slack would be preferred, but I wouldn't mind a Discord or IRC channel either. Perhaps make this a VIP perk.

  4. Button report

    I believe that a button for reporting erroneous duplicate or registered titles would be good! For I have seen several series registered as movies and personal giving checkin anyway. And with the button would be easier to report, rather than being created topic here.

  5. See aggregated friends ratings / activities / collections

    It would be great if /network section would not (only) be a list of people in your network, but an aggregation of activities of everyone in your network.
    To be able to see what my friends have been up to, find what they have rated highly (find recommendations). Going to each friends /history/ page is not nearly as fun for that ;)

    Alternatively perhaps in search filter in addition to "RATED" filter there can be "FRIENDS RATED" filter to achieve a similar result.

  6. Specials not showing in Up next to watch, even though it's the next aired episode

    I have the Include Specials option in the Watch Progress settings checked ( https://i.imgur.com/bHRIVv3.png ). The show I'm watching ( https://trakt.tv/shows/the-thick-of-it/seasons/all ) has 3 specials between Season 2, which I recently finished watching, and Season 3 ( https://i.imgur.com/MyGsq6a.png ). However, the next episode to watch, in my Progress page ( https://i.imgur.com/c7Am7dm.png ) and the Dashboard ( https://i.imgur.com/56tQvIB.png ), is the Season 3 premiere.

  7. RE: Option to hide adult movies from search and site overall

    I've already opened a ticket about this (closed now) but if we're gonna just do it manually then it's going to be quite the long list. So here's what I'm suggesting...

    Since the issue here is TMDb's definiton of what constitutes an 'adult movie' (most of Tinto Brass' filmography is not marked as such, while most people would describe his movies as "porn but, like... with dialogue") a middle ground can be found in the tags of these movies (which makes them appear in the recommendation sections and search). So while, say, Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens is not…

  8. Add "where" and "with" fields

    It would be nice to be able to indicate where and with who has been seen a particular movie/episode. In particular:

    [1] Every "watch date" should have its "where" and "with".
    [2] In the "where" field I can write what I want.
    [3] In the "with" field I can write what I want or add a trakt user.
    [4] If in the "where" field I enter "Sunshine Cinema", this place is automatically saved in a specific "Places" page, in which I can add/delete/edit all the places.
    [5] The places in the "Places" page are automatically suggested when I set the…

  10. Import / Sync from Rottentomatoes

    I'd really like a sync or import option with rottentomatoes, even as a VIP only feature.
    I believe this need some research though because it might not be possible at all.

  11. Most Watched TV Show

    On the profile page, the section titled:
    MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
    Is, or can be, a bit misleading. Example of what I mean:
    TV Show 1 (TV1) has 150 episodes
    TV Show 2 (TV2) has 20 episodes

    Now, I watch TV1 in its entirety, so that is 150 watches. Now I watch TV2, all episodes, 5 times. That is 100 watches. Now, the section titled most watched... will say that TV1 is most watched. Now TV1 has the most watches, because it has the most episodes, but really TV2 is the most watched as it has been watched 5 times…

  12. Mutually Exclusive Lists

    Allow certain personal lists to be marked as mutually exclusive, meaning that if i add an item to such a list, it should automatically be removed from any other mutually exclusive list.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  16. Viewer's Milestones

    Hello
    I have small idea - special page in profile, where user can observe they milestones for using trakt.tv.

  17. Collection Settings

    It would be nice if there was a way to set your default Collection viewing options. There is a place to set settings for Collection progress, but unless I'm missing it, there's no way to set preferences for the Collection itself. Currently, it defaults to All Types by Recently Collected... for me, it'd be more useful to show Shows by Title every time I see my Collection (thankfully, it does that on Kodi where I primarily use my Collection, but it would be helpful not to have to reset my view every time I go to it on the website).…

  18. Movie language matching with "original title"

    After coming by this too often:
    Please rely on the original title language from TMDB only as a fallback. It's wrong on tons of foreign movies due to the fact that the field was added just over a year ago.

    I would take the language field as the default and only if multiple languages are found do a comparison with the "original title". Wouldn't hurt to display all of them anyways though ;).

  19. 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.
