  1. Episodes in grid format on Progress page

    Hello,

    There are only 6 "Up-To-Next" episodes on home page and personal progress page only shows episodes on right side as list.

    It would be really great see them like the watchlist so it will be easy to decide watch shows to watch.

    • Reject duplicate plays to history

      I don't do regular housekeeping of my trakt data and things are prone to get messy due to various bugs in apps and plugins but I'll always end up with duplicate plays at some point. Many of those end up going from check-ins to plays at the same timestamp which shouldn't get accepted as valid by the site at all imho or at least end up getting merged. Despite not not being advertised outside of some support threads and a single kodi forum thread I end up getting a lot of visitors on my duplicate removal script (500+ last year)…

      • Hide Listed in Movie and TV Search

        In the movie and TV search, when looking at Trending/Popular/Watched/Collected/Anticipated (and Box Office for movies), I'd like to be able to browse by Hiding Listed movies. This way I can discover more new movies easier. When I'm only able to hide them, I have to scroll through many grayed out pages, and it can take awhile to get to anything new at all.

        • Spoiler switch in the main menu or elsewhere integrated in the UI

          The same way there's now a fast switch for dark mode in the main menu (Dark Knight Mode), I think it would be interesting the have a quick method to turn spoilers on and off. For example, when browsing lists, specially when there are lots of special episodes, sometimes I need to click on several items to reveal their titles, because "Special 34" doesn't give as much information as "6x03", and it becomes tiresome pretty fast. Going to settings to temporarily turn spoilers off and later turn them on isn't ideal either. I think a switch where a single click…

          • More than one collected format of an item

            As of right now you can mark a item as collected with one type of metadata bluray/dvd/digtal ect.
            Myself I have multiple editions of a movie like a bluray and a dvd or bluray and digital copy or all of the above.
            It would be nice to either be able to mark a movie/tv show/episode as collected more than once.
            Like watch history with a view all button and the best quality shown on the main page.
            Or be able to select more than one option under format.
            I personally prefer the former because it represents what is an entirely…

            • Native Friend discovery

              Rather than making Friend discovery dependent on 3rd-party social platforms, please implement native Friend discovery. One solution would be comparing tastes and ratings and film viewings between users and letting users discover & add each other that way, similar to Last.FM's Neighbors feature

              • Incorrect network data

                It seems TVDB doesn't support multiple networks anymore...
                TMDB does.

                For example
                Netflix picked up two shows

                Money Heist (previously Antena 3)
                Lucifer (previously FOX)

                but all the previous episodes (from the former network) are shown as been aired on Netflix. So at the moment data is incorrect and it changes the values in Year in Review for example.

                • Add movie studios to year review

                  In the Shows Year in Review we can see how many shows we saw form each Network. It would be cool if we could do the same for the movies and see the Studios!

                  • Will Trakt ever decide to use TMDB episode information if there is none on TVDB?

                    I love trakt. And I love TMDB. I contribute a lot to TMDB and think it is much better of a site and a community and more user friendly than TVDB. I understand that TVDB probably has a more comprehensive database for series compared to TMDB (I think TV shows are only a fairly recent addition to TMDB). However, contributing to TVDB is much more arduous than to TMDB, especially when it comes to getting incorrect data changed. The TVDB forum is fairly dead and slow to respond, me as a user have no idea if they keep track of…

                    • Create a folder/list of lists

                      I like to keep my series/doramas/animes/variety or reality shows organized by status (currently watching, dropped, priority, freezer etc), but my lists get a bit messy since they're all mixed up.
                      If I could create different folders for each, I think it would make things easier.

                      And I know it sounds like a feature not many people would use, but it's worth the try.

                      Thanks anyway.

                      ^^

                      • Improve PWA

                        I'm an Android user and I've often searched for native apps that integrate with Trakt but I always end up returning to the Trakt website itself because it offers more features, is more robust & also is quite quick.

                        For a better integration into the OS I always add the website to my homescreen to have the Chrome bar removed and have a separate entry in the Recents with the Trakt icon.

                        Now over the last few years/months Google has improved upon this simple add to home screen feature and offered "deeper" integration.

                        For example PWAs can show up in…

                        • Preview comment before publishing

                          When trying to do "fancier" tricks with Markdown, it's not always clear if the rendered result will match the desired effect. The thing I miss most when writing comments on Trakt compared to places like GitHub is the ability to preview what I've written, as it will appear after posting, before publishing it.

                          • Select preferred "Watch Now" services

                            Reelgood, Trakt's (primary?) "Watch Now" data partner, could possibly provide this information somehow with an update to the existing two-way sync feature, if implementing Trakt's own UI for it isn't feasible due to available dev time etc.

                            The main use cases I see are filtering lists and other views to show only content the user has access to through a service subscription, and prioritizing which two "Watch Now" buttons get the prime slot below the poster image on pages where that applies. (Right now, even shows that are available on e.g. Hulu display Amazon & iTunes purchase options there, forcing…

                            • More ways to close "Watch Now" modal dialog

                              The "Watch Now" modal is very tedious to dismiss. The "X" is quite small, and there's no other way to close it.

                              Closing it when the user clicks/taps outside the box would help, as would auto-closing it when the user clicks/taps on one of the streaming sources.

                              This is somewhat related to https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/32424703-change-modal-windows-behavior (so if you want to merge the two, that's totally understandable)

                              • Bath edit plays / history

                                When I joined Trakt, I set a bunch of movies/shows I had watched to Release Date if I didn't know the date, but I realized later this messes with my stats more than I'd like. I'd love a bulk edit option (i.e. remove plays before X date) until the indeterminate date option is added.

                                • Additional options for profile boxes

                                  It's very minor, but I think it might be nice to have more options for the boxes on your profile. I marked my ideas per what the boxes currently are on the profiles.

                                  Featured comment/review of your own choosing.

                                  I think little stuff like this makes it a little bit more personal.

                                  • Trakt rating breakdown

                                    It would be great if Trakt ratings could be broken down to how many users choose each rating. A Trakt version of this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3829266/ratings?ref_=tt_ov_rt

                                    • Filtering lists by Advanced Filters

                                      I have Trakt VIP and access to Advanced Filters. I can filter shows via parameters like 'network' or 'watchnow', that are appended to URL.

                                      Would be possible to support similar advanced filtering for lists. I tried adding same parameters to URL, but it didn't work.

                                      For example I have watchlist consisting ~40 shows. I would like to see shows produced by Netflix. So I'd like to use:

                                      https://trakt.tv/users/franiis/lists/watchlist-shows?sort=released,asc&networks=Netflix

                                      (some UI could be usable, but support for URL should be easier and faster to add).

                                      • Automatically reload page if connection to server is lost.

                                        I keep a tab open on Trakt in Firefox for Android at all times and come back to it whenever I need to file something as watched. Because of the caching system in Firefox (possibly just for Android?), sometimes the tab is being loaded from the local cache instead of from the server.

                                        When it does this, I'm no longer connected to the server, and trying to mark shows gives me an error saying "You are already signed in." To get the site back into working condition, I need to hit reload in Firefox to force it to establish a…

                                        • Allow to reorder Watchlist

                                          Allow to reorder Watchlist in the personal lists page? It's not that important to be featured at the top.
