  2. 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).

  4. 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…

  5. 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).

  11. Make the x hours to watch series reflect time remaining

    Say a TV series is 10 hours long, 10 episodes of 1 hour each.

    After watching 2 episodes, the "time to watch series" should now say 8 hours remaining instead of 10 hours.

  13. Exodus for kodi integration

    A option to log into and have simkl track TV shows/Movies using exodus. Something like trakt but trakt sucks because it keeps deleting TV shows.

  15. Have an option of entering in when you watched it...on release day or some other day

    Like on trakt.tv you click on watch and then the website gives you an option: Right Now, On Release Date, or Other Date. I'd like to have that...thanks!

  17. Scrobble videos watched from other sources

    not everyone uses paid services such as hulu, amazon or netflix.
    free streaming websites should be added, such as:
    watch-series.to
    streamtuner.ag
    shush.se
    watchcartoononline.com
    watchfree.to
    etc.

    many of these free websites are pulling their video links from online storage websites such as putlocker.is
    some of these websites get taken down and come back, or new ones appear. and the videos get taken down, and put back up with a different link.

    in order to track and scrobble these, id suggest inferring from the the video name, or video link, as well using their fingerprint software/hashing the video. could be done as…
