  1. 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 couple of things to look at.

          An option to check if shows haven't been recently watched for more than 1 month to be removed from watching. Also that monthly subscription and maybe a way to show all the watching lists into one, without switching tabs.

          • Calender

            Would be nice, that when i use the calender to see my tv shows/anime, that it would scroll automatically to the day of the month that is now.

            • 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.

              • Android Chrome notifications not working - why not use app instead?

                The HTML 5 notifications on android Chrome are not working. Probably something that needs to be fixed by Google but...

                Why go through adding more points of failure? Why can't the actual SIMKL app send its own notifications without having to resort to third party apps like Chrome or IFTTT? It's too much bloat for something very simple: An app that sends its own notifications.

                • on the Plan to watch button a button that says, "Keen to cheek it out!"

                  I was just browsing upcoming shows and thought That I might like to cheek it out but until I see the first episode I would not be keen to say plan to watch. It would add an extra category like Im interested but not committed.

                  • Recommendations based on profile

                    It would be great if there were recommendations based on past ratings.

                    • Display scores from Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic

                      I usually consider scores from Rotten Tomatoes (both critic and audience) more than IMDb, so having both and some others would be very good.

                            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.

                            • Add setting to hide plot

                              Add a setting to the website to hide the plots by default - this helps if a user goes through the episodes and doesn't want to know the plot in advance - it's a feature that Trakt supports. See the attached screenshot for reference (the hidden plot is at the bottom of the screenshot).

                                • different rating system

                                  the classic rating system still good
                                  but I hope to see a different rating system
                                  because sometimes the usual rating system is not fear
                                  and the best example I can give will be https://anilist.co
                                  because with anilist you can rate the way you want

                                  and thanks for all good work

                                    Make the available shows regional based. If you partnered with a site like https://www.justwatch.com/au/ then you can see whats available per country.
                                    When I logon as an Australian user it says I have three seasons available to me on Netflix, however because of regional licensing I have only 2.

                                    • Keyboard shortcuts

                                      It would be nice if the site would support (more) keyboard shortcuts. Especially when setting up a new profile, you go through a lot of series/movies. It would be awesome if you could hit right/left arrow to focus the next item in the list, hit 1 to 9 (or 0 for 10, I guess) to provide a stars rating, and some clever keys for adding to lists.

                                      • Watching list to have only shows with unwatched episodes

                                        The watching list is filled with a lot of shows that I've complete to date, but they are still airing. I would it so that I don't see those shows in my list when deciding what to watch. This could either be by putting them on a different list or having any of the filter options group all of those together.

                                        • add a on-hold list for anime

                                          i think having a on hold list for anime and tv series will help people track whatever they watching even better since they may not know if they wanna watch it or not
