  1. 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.

  2. Viewing dates

    Dates you viewed episodes or films

  3. Sync MAL & SIMKL

    Sync MAL & SIMKL so that whenever I mark an episode as watched/completed/not interested it automatically updates MAL. The way it is now, whenever I watch a new anime episode or update an anime to completed/Not interested/plan to watch I have to update it on both sides separately. Be great if I could update if on SIMKL and have it update on my MAL

  4. Expand list of streaming options (i.e. Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Crackle, etc)

    Listed streaming options should be expanded to include Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Adult Swim, Crackle, TubiTV, and other popular streaming options. Reelgood is a competitor that has many of these options listed when on a title's information page.

    Add feature to query by media, aka SIMKL entries, by multiple criteria so users can hone down and find items of interest.

  7. Recently Watched

    i hate the fact that when i add something i watched years ago, it classes it as watched recently. would be nice if we can simply add movies and tv shows without that happening

  9. Add a custom field to every show

    Add a custom field to every show that I can use to for example enter the URL of where I'm watching the show. The field would be entered by show but would appear in every episode to make it just one click away. If it's multiple lines, even better.

  10. Delay new shows appearence by a day or account for timezones

    Be able to introduce a delay before seeing new available shows. I live in germany and new shows appear when it's midnight in the US but they will only be aired about 10 hours later. So either take my timezone into account or to make it easy, a checkbox with a +1 day delay would be fine.

  11. Half star ratings

    Half star ratings. Being able to vote 8.5* instead of 8* or 9* would be really nice for more fine tuned ratings.

  12. Sort by time to watch

    When I'm choosing the next show/movie to watch, I usually go by what genre I want and then by how long it wold take to watch. I remember the genre of shows by their name, but I never know how long it would take to watch them. I can open up a new tab for the show to find out, but if I could sort by time to watch (like we can with name, rank, etc) that would be really nice. It doesn't need to be exact, the guesstimate that's shown on show pages would be plenty.

  13. Search results sould show exact BEGIN matches first

    Search results sould show exact BEGIN matches first.
    When I search for "the magicians", when I type "the magic" I should see this result before "care bears: unlock the magic". Results should also be sorted by rank and also titles I watch should come befrore everything else.

    There is currently a bug in the search that does not sort relevant results first. We’re looking into it, something to do with collecting search stats incorrectly.

    Searching for “the mag” should display “The magicians” at the top when it’s working correctly.

  14. Every time I see a poster, I should have the "add to watchlist 3 choice button"

    The add to watchlist button should be EVERYWHERE always offering the three choices (plan to, seen this, not interested). Offen I heard about the show and want to be able to add it right from the cover. Everywhere I see cover this need to be there because that pretty much the whole point of such a web site. So basically, whenever I see a poster, this 3 choice button should be there.

  15. Automatically move shows to On Hold after missing x episodes.

    Automatically move TV shows under "Watching" to "On hold" after missing 3-5 episodes.
    I have a number of shows that are backup (oh duck I've got nothing else to watch), that are generally not interesting enough to warrant having on the calendar, but still "good enough" if there's nothing else.

  16. movies

    I love this site!

    Something I'd like to see though is a way to search for movies. Also pages of movies instead of the page just loading more every scroll down, with every newly added batch I find it lags more and more to the point where I can't keep going and have to refresh the page and start over with a new category.

  17. Feed

    "feed" to be able to post in your profile about the show you're currently watching or anything. and make it more like a social network to talk and meet new friends with the same interests and share things with them.

  19. Multiple types of list view

    Would be nice to have options to choose how to view a list: 1. Default view with the standard large image thumbnail, 2. A small image thumbnail and title, 3. No image thumbnail at all only the title text.

  20. It would be good if there was a way to find "movies like this." Just plug in what you're looking for and SIMKL genereates suggestions.

    Similar to TasteDive and Movie-Map.
