How can we improve Trakt?

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.

  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)…

  2. 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

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. Specials progress in air date order

    Currently, special episodes in Watched Progress is shown after all season episodes is completed. Is it possible to use the air date order? Some specials aired in the middle of season...

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  11. Dashboard recommendations

    It would be great if the recommendations would be a bit random. When the same ones appear each and every time you log in, they become less "discovery" and more ignored. I saw other ideas on how to select them, which all would be nice, but I think that no matter the method, a bit of randomization / variety to them would be nice.

  12. Follow a List

    Would be nice, if there a way to follow a User List or import the list to the watchlist.

    Sometimes we see great lists... but always need to return to the list to see non-watched movies, etc...

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  20. 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.
