  2. 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…

  6. 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

  10. Contributor or VIP Edit details button.

    There should be an edit button, where people who are VIP or Contributors can make edits to series information, I've found a few mistakes on a couple of anime shows and tv series and even a few movies. Where they are falsely listed as Porn or something different all together. Below I've listed a photo that has edits I've made to show what I suggest, they are highlighted in red.

  11. The ability to disable a certain section entirely, like TV Shows.

    In case that someone is not interested in TV Shows entirely, then why would all that information about TV Shows appear in their profile?!. How about creating an essential option to disable such section completely, and remove all its related data (news, suggestions, recommendations, and even from the watched stats calculator!). Wouldn't that be nice?. ^_^

  18. 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.

  19. Telegram Bot

    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.

  20. 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.
