The implementation would just require a separate “detailed view” mode, which could even be selected from the list sorting order drop down, so it wouldn’t require any real aesthetic makeovers..
Though some are skeptical Trakt will actually put this in, I don’t see why not - seems overdue, considering how well other tracking sites (films, books, etc.) have implemented it and benefited from it.
This is also super important in cases where you have lists that need certain references for movies—these can also help users know something crucial about the film.
In addition, it can provide information on a streaming service that even VIP users can’t view through the Just Watch integration including favorites, as Just Watch is often lagging by days, weeks, or simply has cases where movies are either never removed from a service after expiring or never added after becoming available.
*Short 1–5 (perhaps 20+) word notes would be sufficient for everyone’s purposes posting here, it seems. See Letterboxd’s “detailed” view mode (list, as opposed to their default grid mode) for reference.*
Letterboxd has had this feature forever (with a little “view details” button at the top of any list; thus, it could be placed in the drop down list Trakt uses for list “sorting mode”).
Please add this. Will repost in VIP forums too.
@Harvey Specter wow man, thanks for the pics. I am *drooling* over how great it’d be if it was made exactly like your pic (https://i.imgur.com/n4rYKGf.jpg).
Everyone, seriously, check out Harvey’s pic above—if you like it, please upvote!!
Finally, someone said this too... thought I was the only one.
Please add this, because discovering stuff is so important and one of the trademarks of Trakt is clean/simple info in 1 place.
I’m sure lots of people either think about this or would immediately notice a difference & would find more shows (little stuff like this is how I finally started using Trakt on a regular basis, partly thanks to how it looks when you upgrade to VIP).
As always, thanks for everything! You’re the best Justin & team.
So is this limited to manual play adds? I don’t use a hyper-manual approach like some so am curious.
I haven’t had any problems with duplicates, even when I expect them.
Or is this always/often happening when you check in at the same time as starting a new play???
I’m new-ish to Trakt (at least VIP/using my account actively), so I don’t think I’ve used the “Check In” function more than once or twice.
So if someone had an answer to especially my last question, it would be a big help. Thanks.
