  2. 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…

  8. 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.

  11. 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…

  18. Manga support

    Manga support. I understand this probably isn't possible to make happen soon as there aren't many people who read it, but it would be a very handy way to keep up with currently publishing works.
