  1. Dashboard up next to watch little bug

    Hi,

    There's a little bug in the count progress of the up next to watch (i'm on GMT +1). I'm pretty sure it's related to the time zone has I know it will display the good progress later in the day.
    http://imgur.com/Ruj9tXu (it should be 17/18)

    By the way, there's also something that bothers me a bit :
    I have "Tomorrow" as upcoming start day for "Upcoming schedule" and there's always a time gap (i'm not sure exactly how much time) between when the show disappears from the upcoming schedule and it appears in the up next to watch part.

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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…

              • 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…

                  • 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…

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                              - finished series: [eg. Strike Back]

                                • 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 ;).

                                  • 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.

                                    • Easier CSV export/backup of multiple sections

                                      Make it easier to do CSV export of multiple setctions at the same time. E.g. add a tab in the profile where you can mark which stuff you want to backup then a backup button which will give you a ZIP file with the selected section's CSV files. Maybe even make to possible to backup automatically to Google Drive.

                                      • Dashboard recommendations

                                        It would be great if the recommendations would be a bit random. When the same ones appear each and every time you log in, they become less "discovery" and more ignored. I saw other ideas on how to select them, which all would be nice, but I think that no matter the method, a bit of randomization / variety to them would be nice.

                                        • How many movies have you seen from a specific person?

                                          I added this idea on vip forum, but might as well post here to for the general pop to see :)

                                          Its fun to know :
