        • Track non conventional pages like <<animeheaven.eu>> and <<solarmoviesc.com>>

          It would be awesome if the Chrome extension would be able to track episodes or series watched on non conventional pages like the ones mentioned. There are a lot of anime, movies and series out there that don't necessarily appear on Netflix, Chrunchyroll or Hulu. It would help the plataform to expand the content database too, =)

                • Add last seen date to the lists

                  After I add a movie/tv show to a list, let me set a date for when I last saw it.

                  • Responsive layout

                    The issue is that the website isn't responsive for the screen layout of your browser.
                    This prevents a user to use splitscreen or lesser used widths on some devices.
                    This would be done by changing the internal code of the JS.
                    And i know it's probably something that you are already working on, but i would like to see what the community thinks about this!

                    • Better lists and overviews.

                      In the 'currently watching', you should have a divider. Over the line should the 'my list' that is displayed on your profile, and underneath it, all 'currently watching' that you are up to date on.
                      ----------------
                      Also, Adding a 'on hold' status. You sometimes want to take a break - and not have it in 'currently', but not in the 'dropped either'.
                      ---------------
                      Also, would be nice with custom lists. Not as a status, but where you can gather things like 'movies I recommend for dates' etc.

                          • My TV Shows layout

                                Currently, this is not possible. We don’t have the TV Time API key and they have not responded to the API key request. Ask TV Time to allow Simkl to import your data and give them the API key. Or Aks TV Time how you can export your own watch history data.

                              • Adding a new show without English translation

                                If a TV show has not got a Title/Descriptions in English the TV show can not be added. Sometimes TV Shows that are not English spoken, have no translation on TVDB for theirs title. The TV show should be added anyways respecting it's original title and language.

                                I've seen that happen to a show that has description in Spanish and English but the title is only in Spanish and Simkl refuses to recognize the show

                                  A Telegram bot would be nice. They offer a free API (https://core.telegram.org/bots). It could work like this: In a chat with the simkl bot, you send a command like /watched Star Trek DS9 E1S2 and it would add it to the watched list.

                                  • Sync MAL & SIMKL

                                    Sync MAL & SIMKL so that whenever I mark an episode as watched/completed/not interested it automatically updates MAL. The way it is now, whenever I watch a new anime episode or update an anime to completed/Not interested/plan to watch I have to update it on both sides separately. Be great if I could update if on SIMKL and have it update on my MAL

                                      • Combining Anime seasons

                                        Combine anime series together like the TV section? Currently the animes are different entries. When i import my Trakt data it does not register the different entries therefore missing some episodes etc.

                                          Improve search functionality.
                                          Improve the DB to include staff/cast.
                                          Allow us to search by director or actor.
                                          Give us staff/cast info, and then allow us to click on a particular staff's name to find more of that person's work.
