  1. TV Shows/Movies Poster & Backdrop Artwork Submissions

    Would it be possible one day to suggest or perhaps submit an updated poster and/or backdrop artwork for a particular tv show or movie? For example, Hawaii Five-0 has updated art reflecting their new characters...

    I think it would be a cool feature if we could submit possible candidates for updating tv shows and movie artwork here at Simkl, or at the very least offer suggestions for you guys to consider on the backend.

    You can change\remove your watching status and rating in tv\movie details. Will look into how we can make the overwrite function for stuff already on your watchlist without breaking what you have already marked as watched.

  5. Different Rating Scales

    The ability to switch to rating scales other than integers from 1-10 would be useful. I prefer a 0.x-10.0 scale (or 1-100 or whatever) for more fine tuned rankings.

  7. Navigating to A T.V. Show without [enter] doesn't work in edge cases

    Try Entering
    "House M.D." into the search box. Since the database doesn't consider all of the titles (House M.D.) is the full title of "House", so it navigates to some other show, instead of doing a fuzzy search.

  8. Minimalism design

    You could look, make it more minimalist, because now there is too much of everything on the screen. The perfect look is at https://www.themoviedb.org. There is a perfect harmony between functions and transparency.

  9. Display episodes as an overview list with names and watched button. (For unordered TV series)

    Simki works well for series that are logically ordered into seasons, but not for episode which are disjoint. I'm watching episodes of the NHK documentary series Begin Japanology:
    https://simkl.com/tv/20325/begin-japanology/episodes/

    I would like to be able to easily mark some episodes watched, but I haven't watched them in any particular order.

    Currently I can mark episodes by season, but without labels, which is useless since episode number has no meaning. If I go to the episode page, I have to individually click into an episode to mark it as viewed, which is horrifically inconvenient.

    What I need is an option to…

  10. Widgets to embed last watched or last rated movies

    I'd like to have simple widgets (to use with iframe or similar) for all my lists, so that I can embed them on my blog, web site, etc.

  12. rewatched series/movies/anime

    hey :) ive been a user a long time. and after some years of trying to find a good website for me this is the best one. there is one thing i would like! i rewatch many movies and series even anime. but i cant put it in that ive watched it twice. i know it would be a big update, but i think its worth it. that you could somehow put, rewatched where you can choose watched, dropped it, hold. then there would be a rewatched, and endless count on rewatched times.

    when you then press rewatch button, there…

    I am planning to create some sort of edit interface where it would be possible to enter the number how many times you re-watched and to reset the marked episodes. In idea stage right now. But currently no plans to keep a history of both times you watched the same episode only the last watched date would be saved.

  20. Rating

    I think that it could be great to be able to rate each season of a show and not only the whole serie.. Moreover I wish that the rate can be removed if I wrongly mark a thing (Movie,anime,serie..)
