  1. Wanted (in collection) / Wishlist

    As many of us are indeed collectors, also focusing on collection automation within trakt.tv, people may want to differentiate further between stuff they like to watch (Watchlist) and what they actually like to collect (Wishlist - as seen and implemented in apps such as Movist)

    Having a separate smart Wishlist, which is updated automatically as soon as items getting collected, may give us the best of two worlds, in addition reducing the management impact of the given Watchlist especially when it comes to bigger collections.

  2. Making network groups

    Making network groups for sharing Ratings, Collections, Comments etc

    My idea in general is to add an option for making public/private groups. On these groups there we will be this features:
    - Share each member's rating, see the average rating between all the members and compare it to the general ratings.
    - Share statistics.
    - Private discussion for each movie/tv show, only between the members.
    - Share recommendations.
    - See each member collection.
    - See "people watching now" only from the member of the group.
    etc...
    * Join members, Admin could confirm new members

  3. alexa

    There's a great deal of interest in controlling Kodi and apps like it using Alexa, however to make that work, the app needs a remote server that can connect to Alexa's cloud servers. At present, the only way to set this up is using an elaborate server system, like this: http://www.howtogeek.com/249336/how-to-control-your-kodi-media-center-with-an-amazon-echo/

    It seems to me that Trakt already has almost all the tools to make this work without needing an elaborate setup. You have the library of the Kodi user. You have a connection from Kodi to the internet. What you still need is a way to send commands to…

  4. private profile public list

    I have a private profile, but would like to make one of my lists public.

    At the moment this doesn't seem to be possible. (Searches for the name of the list, already set to Public, does not return any results. If I go directly to the link of the list when logged out, what shows up is a message that the user is private, and not the public list.)

  5. International Movie Release Dates

    Though "My Movies" calendar is a great feature I can't make full use of it because not every film is released in the US and internationally on the same day. Now comes the hard part, because I don't know if you can do this, but it would be great and very useful if we could choose which country's release date we want to appear on the calendar, that way we would always know when we can actually go see the movie (anywhere and everywhere).

  6. Add personal status to shows via the progress page.

    I would be really cool if users can mark/flag their shows manually, for example:

    Watching - If the user is actively watching it.
    Renewed - If the user has caught up and the shows is on break.
    Airing - If the user has caught up and the show is airing.
    Hiatus - If the user has caught up and the show is on midseason break or something like that.
    On-Hold - If the user has paused watching the show but hasn't dropped it.
    Dropped - If the user doesn't intend to watch any-more.
    Re-watching - If the user is re-watching…

  7. Tokusatsu series need HUGE amounts of cleanup

    Tokusatsu TV shows like Super Sentai (and the American adaptation, Power Rangers), Kamen Rider, and Ultraman are currently a HUGE mess on Trakt. From TVDB, they have season entries for each series under the main entry. There are also individual shows split out from these that have separate entries, likely imported from TMDB (some deleted at the source).

    I simply can't take the time to go through and list all of them—there are 20+ seasons of EACH that I'd need to look for, and I don't know the franchises that well. But they do need attention. I'd wager money on…

  8. Show a chart of the ratings per episode for every season/entire series so that you can see if the show getts better/getts worse.

    It would be cool so see that the first season of a show is better then the last one. Maybe you saw the last episode aired on your tv, thought is had a reasonably interesting concept, but not good enough to want too keep watching. Then you could see if the first season got different ratings and realize; "Maybe it's worth watching after all!"

    I think a graph would give it a better look, and make it easier to understand and read.

  9. Add TMDB as an alternative to pull TV data

    I've been using trakt a lot, I have a lot of different shows on my progress list, and recently I have started to notice that TVDB has some stupid rules, and don't allow certain shows to be added.

    I propose that there should be a way for a specific show to pull its data from TMDB instead, that doesn't have those stupid rules, I don't know how hard that would be to implement, but since the website already pulls the data for movies from TMDB, I hope not a lot.
    In last resort case, there should be a way to…

  10. Create hide field to remove tv seasons which have finished but haven't ended.

    I like to binge watch tv shows but I hate watching halfway through a season and realizing that it hasn't finished. The idea is to hide seasons/tv shows off of the progress page which haven't finished airing for the season.

    We usually don’t enough data to know that a season is still in progress or not. Usually episodes are added to the season as it progresses and not all up front. I’ll move this to researching so we can look into later if we get more accurate data.

  11. Friends watched or followings watched ?

    If I follow someone who's profile is not private,

    I would be happy to see if he watched a movie/episode when you go on the movie/episode's page.
    This only works if you're friends. But since the profile is public, I could go and check it manually. Which is a bit a waste of a time.
    My point is it should be
    Followings with public profil as minimal requirement to see it on those pages.

    | 357 watching now | 2 followings watched | Rated by 1 following |

    I assume here that ratings are available if profile is public

  12. TV & MOVIES : RATING CAST !

    sometimes we fall in love with character in show average or below even so it would be great to rate charcter in the show for his performance , for example :
    Eva Green from penny dreadful ,
    Zach McGowan from black sails
    Bobby Cannavale from boardwalk empire .. etc

    so all of asking is every show and movie has a cast and we can rate their character in this specific show ...

    sorry for my bad English ...

  13. Lock lists

    Allowing lists to be "locked". So a movie can't be added or removed from the film page. It can be annoying when a list is "complete" (ex. a film festival or the Top X from year Y) and by mistake I add a movie who has nothing to do in this list because I clicked the wrong one. It hold no sense to propose me to add the movie to a list when the list is "locked" or "finished"

  14. Graphically present timeline of watched/collected episodes

    I think it would be cool and useful if the progress bars in the watched/collected screens was filled by what episodes you've seen, so that if there's a 3 season show, and you've seen season two, the 33% of the bar filled would be in the middle of the progress bar. Gives a nice one-look view of whether you are missing any of the latest episodes.

    For a graphical representation, see https://www.dropbox.com/s/j5wdnn22x58c9w1/trakt-idea.jpg?dl=0

  15. Allow to choose episode order (aired or dvd)

    It probably doesn't effect a lot of series but there are a few where the dvd episode order is different to the order when they were first aired (Firefly is a prime example).

    It would be nice to be able to choose which order I prefer (tvdb has both)

  16. use yours and a friends profile to find movies none of you have seen

    Wouldnt it be awesome when trying to find movies to watch

    1. pick friend/s to watch with
    2. press a ''lets watch a movie button''
    3. get a list of all the movies none of you have seen, with various ways of filtering it of course

    this kind of goes towards having a more social and interacting Trakt, and a easy way to sell in trakt to your friends

  17. "Trash" for recently removed plays

    Having just had an app delete an old play from last year when I thought I was adding a new one, I see a need for a "trash" where old plays go when removed for some time (14 days? 30?) before being permanently removed from the database. Often I can extrapolate the time of an accidentally removed play from surrounding episodes of the same show, but in this case that isn't possible.

    I don't know if it's worth adding to the API, though.

  18. Web App / Offline Support

    Today browsers are getting more and more features to really feel like normal apps.
    One of the really exciting new features are Service Workers. They basically allow the caching of content locally which means that the website can even be opened without an internet connection (and loading the website in general would be faster and save bandwidth).
    Along with some other features (like Push Notifications) the trakt.tv website could feel like a normal application.

    I guess it would be good to go in this direction because it's easier to enhance the website instead of writing 2 completely new native Android…

  19. A options that you could subscribe or un subscribe from a show

    For example: if i watch one or two episodes it doesn't necessarily mean i want to continue to watch the show. therefore if you want, you can subscribe to it or dont, so it would show in my progress page and in my calendar

  20. Group episodes of a show that are marked as watched simultaneously on the history page

    Marking a season of a show, or the whole show itself, as watched will display each of the show's episode on the history page. Imagine that on a show with 200 episode that you had watched previously, for example. You mark this show as watched and then you check your history. You'll have to navigate through a lot of pages that display the show's episodes and it's kind of an unpleasant experience, especially when you want to review your watched history.
