      • Series ended on Post Page

        I would like see series ended across the front of the poster on the profile page. Similar to how you have the episode numbers listed.

        • TMDb for TV shows as well

          TVDB does not allow extended versions of shows (even when their network considers them a different show). Because of this any such shows will have incorrect statistics. TMDb (which is already used to source the movie info) now also supports TV shows, and is much easier to contribute to if corrections are needed. This would also reduce the overhead for Simkl (one less API to worry about breaking).

            • Netflix and Amazon Network Categories

              You do not have a category for Netflix or Amazon under networks. Doing this would allow us to see shows provided by those media content creators as they do act as 'networks' in that sense.

                  • Erroneous second season of "Planet Earth" (not on TVDB)

                    I tried to fix this myself on TVDB, only to find that TVDB was correct and Simkl was out of sync with it. Not sure if this is a deeper problem or not (I don't know how often data is refreshed).

                    I know this was added here before but being able to report errors natively in Simkl would be much more user friendly than having to post here (think of trying to attract the average web user).

                    • Create "Best of Lists" from Credible Sources

                      Allow users to set up "watch lists" according to published "best of" lists--for example from AFI, the Oscars, and other organizational lists. The same could be done for best TV shows of all time or best lists by genre.

The idea of a go to app that lets…

                        • Groups

                          If you are familiar with "Steam", you'll know about groups. Users can create their own groups, public or private/invite only, for all kind of interests.

                          Why I'd consider this useful is to invite already existing communities to simkl. On all kinds of forums you'll find people talking about which movies and shows they recommend - why not make it easier for them?

                          With groups they'd have to chance to connect with familiar names immediately. And you could offer tons of statistics based on the group's interests.
                          What have they seen most? What did they see in the last week? What…

                                          I would very much like for Simkl to auto-import from MAL, instead of having to do it manually.
