General

We have a lot of support tickets and are working to update the site and issues as fast as we can. If you don’t get a reply right away, it’s not because we’re ignoring you, but because we are working on updates. Thanks.

How can we improve Trakt.tv?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Removing early rating (ie rating of unreleased episode) or banning early rater?

    Hi TrackTV team,

    I know I'm onto a topic that have been discussed already, and I'm trying the shed a new light here, my apologies if this has been already discussed also.

    I'm seeing more and more rating on episode that have not been released yet, which is annoying (because it is not very smart) but mostly it is biaising the overall rate of a tv show (unless it gets loads of votes), hence degrading the trust a user can have of TrackTV ratings.

    I have seen several other requests that have been denied but none pointing out the negative…

    • Create a Watching Challenge similar to Goodread's Reading Challenge

      I could explain this idea, but I think the Goodread's blog post ( https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/1130-read-more-this-year-with-the-2018-reading-challenge ) does it better than I could. Obviously this is a low priority suggestion and more for fun, but it does have an element of that newfangled gamification thing that was all the hype.

        • Tweak privacy choices, do NOT save them in a cookie

          Due to the EU GDPR you recently introduced the "privacy" choices when you log in.

          Considering data minimization is a key point in it, the default preselected options must be the ones that keep the data at a minimum. So, perhaps change the defaults to off, instead of on.
          But many websites don't care about this point.

          Secondly, for god's sake, do NOT save those settings - that you only see when you login - in a cookie alone. That information is vital in a sense for the website to work correctly, so saving it on the account is justified.

          • Turn "Up next to watch" on the Dashboard into a sideways scroll

            Instead of having to click "SEE MORE", we could just press a left or right arrow that would show everything we have on "Up next to watch".

                • Add notifications for “friends starts watching” event

                  Add Desktop/Pushover notifications on friends activity.

                  For instance, when I am following someone I like to keep track of what they are watching to see if there's something interesting for me.

                  Instead of only exploring my friends' activity on my dashboard I would like to receive real-time notifications when they start watching a movie or episode.

                  • Bug: Archer Season 3 doesn't show the full 13 episodes

                    According to DVD/Netflix/Hulu/iTunes/Amazon Video/Google Play/Microsoft Store/IMDB/archer.wikia/Wikipedia, Archer Season 3 has 13 episodes, starting with 'Heart of Archness: Part I' and ending with 'Space Race: Part II'.

                    Trakt.tv is showing it as having 10 episodes, with 'Heart of Archness: Part I/II/III' being episodes orphaned to 'Specials', which breaks watching/scrobbling/etc. for a bunch of experiences.

                    This is because TheTVDB is providing this for their 'Aired Order' data (and are committed to not changing that, because they believe this to be the way the season aired. it's debatable).

                    Apparently their 'DVD Order' data has the metadata/ordering used by streaming/downloadable sources. So I guess…

                        Occurs on both chrome browser on my laptop as well as chrome browser on my android phone. Often when I click on an item/try to rate an item instead it will take me back to the home screen and a message pops up saying 'you are already logged in'.

                            • Alert me to special local screenings of movies on my Watchlist (besides new releases)

                              It'd be great to be notified on the Dashboard when there's a special showing happening near me of movies that aren't new releases. There are lots of small, independent theaters that do special screenings, re-releases, or film festivals, or whatever.

                              For example, I had Vertigo on my Watchlist, and there was a showing at my local theater, and it would've been great if that appeared on my Dashboard.

                              I know getting to that data is difficult, and a lot of it is probably impossible to get in a usable, automatable format, but there are a lot of showtime sites that…

                              • Easier add to list functionality

                                The list section is great, but lacking a quicker way to add films. An option in the UI at the top of the screen allowing checkboxes to add in bulk to a list would be very beneficial in building quick lists.

                                I am currently trying to find a quicker way of reviewing my films I have seen and building lists for friends as must-watch films, but to add 300 or so movies is very laborious.

                                    • Progress Filters

                                      In Progress view, there are options to filter by Completed and Ended. However this filters as Completed OR Ended. I'd like for an option to filter as Completed AND Ended, so any that I have seen all episodes but is an ongoing series is still visible. And any that have ended but I haven't finished watching are visible.

                                      Thanks

                                      • [API] Users/watched to include number of seasons/episodes in show/season

                                        The results from users/watched shows to include how many seasons are actually in the show, and how many episodes there are in the season.

                                        Then it would be possible to calculate percentage the user has watched of the show without pulling information from every single show to make the calculation.

                                          We don’t include this information for performance reasons. I’ll move this to researching, but I don’t think its something we’ll be able to do anytime soon unfortunately.

                                          Yet it wasn't anything like reporting comments, or giving us a way of ignoring certain people. But at least a step in the right direction. But one thing in particular is disappointing here:
                                          It seems you did the same mistake again as you did with last_activity.

                                          In terms of last_activity:
                                          If a user edits any comment, commented_at of that user would change.
                                          But you'd have to sync ALL comments ever written by that user because you have no chance knowing what or how many comments were edited (or in…
