Unfortunately this is still very hard to predict with earlier online premieres and different release dates around the world. I’d like to do this as well, so i’ll leave it to continue researching.
For some added context, Rotten Tomatoes is reportedly blocking comments and ratings on films before theatrical release. Trakt shows their ratings in its UI.
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.
@tahir khan: Use the "hide" button for the dropped show on your progress page.
If we can start shows, and finish them, there should also be an allowance for shows that we start and then decide not to finish. +3
Existing plays for episodes of the show, of course, should remain in history and stats.

A better GUI for this would be great, but I'm going to remove my vote because this is possible by editing the URL of one's history page. The start_at and end_at parameters allow this. I believe also the Year In Review can take one to the appropriate places.
Not a super common use case, but we’ll investigate in the future.
I just accidentally added a movie to one of my lists (which happens to be featured by Trakt, so that could have been really bad).
This would be very useful.
Definitely on the todo list still. We are working on comment related starting in february.
This would also be useful as a sort of kludge to work around things like episodes that were never released on DVD/Blu-ray, or episodes that aired abroad but not in the country of origin. I've already run into a few of these, and I just know the "98% collected"-type entries on my progress pages will bother me.
@Glasgow1975 Visit your Trakt dashboard and use your browser's option to "Add to Home screen". That is probably what you were using.
@Nathan, no, that's a third-party client.
More for the app functionality in general: One advantage of having an app would be the ability to have certain entries cached (On Deck, Watchlist, etc.). Then, even if the device has no internet connection, the user could mark them as watched, rate, and write comments. When the internet connection becomes available again, these actions could be synced back to the site with their original timestamps.
@Anonymous, using Trakt from a bookmark feels app-like up to a point, but there are some issues with it. The site doesn't behave very well on slow or flaky connections, for one thing. A native app could do more to provide affordances for the user when loading data or transitioning between screens that can't be rendered until an API response comes in.
@Jamie Mkaelson: What?
This seems like a natural extension of the "Hide" functionality. If we can hide shows and movies that we don't want to see, why not also users whose comments we don't want to see? I can think of a couple users I would use this on if the feature existed.
Cool idea to make things super accurate. I suspect this is not an easy or quick change, so we’ll revisit in the future.
Planning to do this, just haven’t had the time to custom code a search yet.
Having to come here and go through the process to either create an idea or fill out the contact form is my #1 obstacle to flagging more problem content. The current process costs enough effort that sometimes I just don't care enough to do it, or don't want to deal with it at the time (e.g. on mobile).
A "Report data issue" link alongside the existing refresh controls would go a long way toward making the whole process easier.
But you'll need a lot more info than I can give you. I will try to recruit someone who knows this stuff to make up a list for you and get the duplicates removed from the other databases. Fair warning, though: it's not going to happen quickly. There are literal decades' worth of shows to check.
Maybe just having this open will attract the needed attention, too, who knows?
