Add a way to flag duplicates directly from item pages
Would it be possible to add some way to flag duplicates directly on the site?
For example adding a link "this is/has a duplicate" next to the "refresh data" that open a pop-up where you can enter a link to the duplicate/original of a movie/show, maybe even a comment if details are needed.
It would be easier and quicker for user to inform you about them and you could even see the links that are flagged more often and correct them first.
It would reduce the number of support messages and make duplicate/error signaling accessible to the less curious of us who never checked what the "Help" link was about or never had the motivation to search and find out how to signal a duplicate.

Yes, there has been a huge uptick in data changes at TVDB recently. Many times they are reverted, but that still leaves remnants at Trakt. We are working on some behind the scenes updates to help identify these, but still might consider another site function to identify it too.
The incorrect data is getting out of control. We have 75 support ticket only for Data Removal. The system this way might work better. Please update us on how the researching for this feature is going, it might reduce load for both side.
This would be so helpful. For us. and for Trakt team.
I can't stand those duplicates or no more existing entries from TMDB/TVDB.
For starters you could give this role/permission to VIP members and see how things go.
