  1. 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)…

    • 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

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              ABOUT BOX
              Featured comment/review of your own choosing.

              MOST WATCHED MOVIE
              Random movie from your history. It changes on refresh.
              Featured movie of your own choosing.

              MOST WATCHED TV SHOW
              Random TV show from your history. It changes on refresh.
              Featured TV show of your own choosing.

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

              • Estimated Date/Time When I Will Catch Up/Complete This Show At The Rate I Am Watching Episodes

                I have this as VIP since this is a little more complex but it would work fine non-VIP as well.

                What I was thinking was that when you pull up a show's main page, it will show an estimate of when you will ether catch up or finish watching the show.

                Here is an example of the math for it to work.... at least I think it works. But it should give you a general idea of how it may function.

                Key:
                b = Average time between episode plays for that show.
                x = Time since last played episode for…

                • Allow bulk removal of duplicate plays

                  Currently we can remove a single play for a single TV episode or movie. I think it would be great if we could bulk remove all duplicate plays from our entire collection.

                  When viewing content, I sometimes have to replay because of a streaming error, etc. This causes duplicate plays.

                  • Differentiate a first-time watch from a rewatch on the Recently Watched sections of user profiles.

                    When taking a glance at the recently watched sections of a user's profile page, it's easy to assume that the user has just watched the movie/show for the first time, even if that user originally watched said movie/show a long time ago. I think that it's very important to distinguish the difference between a first-time watch and a rewatch as they are very different experiences for the user, and that maybe adding a rewatch label/icon or giving the option to hide rewatches from the recently watched sections would be a good idea.

                            • Add the option to skip episodes in your progress tracking

                              It would be useful to have the possibility to skip a single episode or season. For example, it is useful to make some special episodes you will never watch disappear from the progress view.

                              This is different than dropping a show because you may want to skip one episode but be sure of being notified of the next one.

                                It would be really nice, if you let people translate the website but that's not so important for me...
                                but i found that the movie titles are only the english ones, for example the movie "the inbetweeners" is in german "sex on the beach" and so i couldn't find it first because i didn't know that!

                                  I would like to be able to see a list of episodes with checkboxes next to each so that I could quickly mark what I have seen or collected. For example, I might have seen a full season except one special episode and it takes too many steps to mark this.

                                    Compare your movie collection with someone else (friend or just another community member). This would show a list of the movies the other person has that you don't.

                                    • Community lists (or moderated lists)

                                      Allow for lists to be moderated or have an option for a community list.

                                      Moderated list: Allow an author of a list to add moderators. That would allow for the others to make changes to it. And as a further feature allow someone who isn't a moderator to submit an entry for the list. Examples of this could be a list for season previews, festival entries or genre lists.

                                      Community list: This could be a list where everyone is allowed to submit one recommendation as for something like "community recommendations" or voting on lists; "trakt's favorite movie of 2012" etc.

                                      • TMDB Episode groups

                                        TMDB went ahead and made episodes groups available in the API. TVDB failed kinda hard with their V2 and has this feature nowhere with an ETA. Would it make sense to implement them anyways based on the corresponding TMDB#? The major issues will most likely be things containing specials but the same already holds true with today's mappings.

                                        • Hide Seasons (or specific episodes) in the Calendar

                                          When you hide a season from your watch next, it still appears on your calendar. If you try and hide it on the calendar, it hides all of the episodes for the show. This would be great for picking up a show partway through a run, or dropping a show if you want to stop watching.
