    • More countries in the countries tab.

      Adding more countries to separate the shows that it's based in. So, for example, include countries like Australia and India has a lot of shows have come from that area.

      • 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

        • Minor changes to calendar

          I'm a heavy user of the calendar page and would like to see some improvements.

          > An option to start the week on Sunday instead of Monday
          > Different colors for new season episodes and season finales. Series premieres (S01E01) are currently a yellow color, possibly make a S02E02 show up as blue when they air? Season finale as a red? For example, The Expanse is airing two episode finale, I'd like to see the final episode highlighted more so it's recognizable at a glance.
          > Displaying of shows that air two episodes at once. For example, Marvel's Spider-man premiered…

            • 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.

              • Responsive layout

                The issue is that the website isn't responsive for the screen layout of your browser.
                This prevents a user to use splitscreen or lesser used widths on some devices.
                This would be done by changing the internal code of the JS.
                And i know it's probably something that you are already working on, but i would like to see what the community thinks about this!

                      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.

                      When you mark something as watched have a option to pick what date you watched it on

                        • 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.

                              It would be much better if you could merge Seasons 1 & 2 of Attack On Titan, My Hero Academia, and any other anime in need on your site into one show.

                                Youtube is like a new tv service many user use. When an user follow many channels on youtube you can easily lose what was the last video you saw from a channel, or if a video you saw it or not.

                                        • 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.
