          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?

              TMDB *still* has an 8-hours delay on getting updated data to the API? Can someone tell them it's 20-f'ing-17 and that shouldn't be a thing any more?

                  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.

                          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.

                              As an example, https://trakt.tv/shows/kamen-rider-gaim/seasons/1 is a duplicate of https://trakt.tv/shows/kamen-rider/seasons/24

                              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?

                                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.

                                @goose: Ratings isn't History. If you remember that you saw something but don't remember it well enough to give an honest rating, that's a problem. Ratings also have timestamps, and you can't even override them as you can for History and Collection entries.

                                For what it's worth, the Collection feature could also do with allowing the omission of a timestamp. It's not so much the specific type of entry as it is the fact that timestamps are *required* for *all Trakt data*, which is not practical if one is filling in a profile from memory.

                                My workaround is to specify a manual timestamp for things I know I watched but don't know when, telling the site I watched it at the exact minute of my birth. It means that statistical distortion is limited to that one day/year, and all following years should have accurate data.

                                Would still be better to mark something as seen without having to timestamp it. Items without timestamps could contribute to aggregate statistics without affecting time-based stats.

                                  I have this issue with Last Week Tonight. I've watched some of the current-season episodes, so my On Deck is 3x06. But I'm primarily watching from the beginning, so it would be great if On Deck would actually show 1x23.

                                  If I tell Trakt that I've watched all of Season 3, On Deck does correctly display 1x23 as the next episode to watch. But it seems to be using the first member of the last range of unwatched episodes, which is kind of counterintuitive.

                                        I find it interesting to note the value of the "Days" column in my list on MAL. Some shows (like, 13-episode anime, nothing the length of Uchuu Kyoudai or whatever) took me well over 1000 days to finish, and that's impressive in a slightly depressing way. It'd be neat if Trakt surfaced that kind of information.

                                        I am an incurable stats nerd.

                                          It would even be helpful if we could paste e.g. the episode history from MAL for a given show and Trakt would parse it into plays.

                                          The input looks like:

                                          Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil Episode Details
                                          Ep 12, watched on 04/03/2014 at 00:58 Remove
                                          Ep 11, watched on 03/26/2014 at 01:00 Remove
                                          <etc., one line per episode updated>

                                          MAL doesn't print lines for episodes that are skipped, e.g. if you say 2 eps watched then forget 3 and put in 4 next time, so Trakt would probably have to skip those and let the user extrapolate manually.
