  3. Anime,Movies,Tv Shows prequel, Sequels.

    When Watching a Movie/Anime/Tv Show it would be nice to be able to see if there where any prequels or if there are sequels.

    Also so you do not always have to check the shows/movies/anime you watched it would be nice to see a notification like "Transformers 3 is going to come out at "(Release date)".
    If you watched Transformers 2 and rated it higher then 5 for example.
    So you don't get too many notifications of show you did not like.

  10. Bugs in Windows app.

    When running it causes strange behaviour in already opened windows. Sometimess you need several tries to switch between opened explorer windows for example. Or when switching from browser window to explorer window the focus changes, but the browser window stays on top for some reason. Or you need to click on explorer icon in taskbar several times to see the explorer window on top of somethimg already opened.

    Most likely you have multiple Microsoft Visual C++ versions installed on your computer and the tracker gets stuck, uninstalling them usually helps. You can find Visual* in: Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

  12. 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.

  14. More robust calendar.

    How about the ability to completely customize the calendar? Put all of my upcoming releases in movies, TV shows and anime in one calendar.

    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.

  16. Habitica

    I'm sure I'm not the only one with issues with instant gratification as well as finding time to watch movies and TV.

    And seeing as how Habitica is a habit building website with a feature for miscellaneous good and bad things, I could see potential in creating functionality so that when you check off an episode or a movie as watched Habitica rewards you.

    Heck, for extra greatness, there could be functionality for other things on the site, like creating ratings and reviews, which also benefits Simkl for things like that feature for finding friends with TV and Movie compatibility.

  17. tv show/ anime list improvement

    i feel the idea of having image and a description when you click on dashboard then if you go to TV list/ anime list having images and a description there would help seeing the title alone makes it difficult whether if i wanna re-watch or not

  18. About the broadcast times of some series

    Good evening, I want to help you organize a few Turkish series about the time of the broadcast. Çukur (The Pit) series is broadcast on show TV at 8:00 pm on Monday at time, and after the episode is broadcast, the channel is added to its own site and to PuhuTV. Jet Sosyete (Jet Society) series is broadcasted on TV8 channel at 20:00 on Wednesday at Turkey time, and after the publication of the episode, the broadcast section of the series is added to the YouTube channel.

    In addition, this series(https://simkl.com/tv/861940/the-not-living) made the final of the 8th episode.

  20. Clearly list streaming options from a title's main page

    Right now you have to click on an episode to see the available streaming options, but there should be a clear list of available streaming options for the series in general from the main information page of any title. This is a feature on the mobile apps.
