This would be nice. I've been using Last.fm for a very long time, but I get the feeling that one of these days it's just going to disappear and take all my info with it. I'd love to have the same functionality on a newer service like Trakt that's independent from giant media conglomerations.
I'd love to have Trakt track music for me. Last.fm used to be a good option, but it's slowly dying, and seems likely to just disappear at some point in the future.
Basically, anything that can be "scrobbled" automatically would be a welcome addition. I love being able to track what I'm consuming and see how it changes over time.
Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.
This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.
Hiding a show doesn't really do what we want it to. We just want to stop tracking the show, and having it show up in our Calendar and Up Next section. I can remove a show from my Watchlist, but if I've watched any of it, Trakt still acts like I want to keep watching it.
If you remove something from your Watchlist, it should just stop showing it to you. (Also, it needs to be easier to remove a show from your Watchlist. You can't do it from any episode or season pages.)
It would probably also be worthwhile to expand this feature to movies. Even though they're much shorter, I've still abandoned a few movies halfway through because they didn't interest me, and I'd like to be able to mark them as such.
There really needs to be a way to more easily report duplicates, like a link on each movie/show's page.
I'd also like to see a "combine duplicates" button on the Search page. (Clicking it could show a checkbox on each item in the search results, and then a Submit button when you have two or more items listed.
Check out the system that Goodreads uses. It's pretty good.
Going the other way, they could add game-tracking to Trakt, in addition to TV & movies. But that would be a huge project, of course.
Requested more info on which specific modals.
Your points make sense, but as before this is still not something we plan on supporting. I’ll move this to researching, but I don’t anticipate changing this in the near term.
I still think this would be a very useful feature to have. When did I see Star Wars for the first time? I have no idea. It came out 4 years before I was born, and I know I first saw it on TV, but I have no idea when.
My options are currently:
1. Just now. That's not true.
2. Release date. That's the most useful option, but it's still not true, and even less true for movies that were out before I was born.
3. Specific date. I can try to guess, but it's likely I'll be off by years, and certainly by months.
So let's just add:
4. Unknown. I know I've seen it, but have no idea when. Perfect. That's exactly what I need.
Yeah, I've been clicking "on release date", which is wrong.
I know they don't want to encumber the UI with too many buttons, but adding an "I don't know" button would be nice.
Or just make it optional - you would click the purple check box, and it marks it as watched. Then, you have the option to be more specific if you like. That's one-click-or-more functionality instead of the current mandatory-two-clicks functionality.
Planning to replace this with something more similar to the dashboard genre section.
I agree that "other" needs to be expanded. The biggest slice on my pie chart is "other", which is pretty bad info design.
By "bad release date", I meant an inaccurate or false release date.
