I'm looking for a piece of software or a website that will let me compose a list of things I've read, watched, and played.

What I'm mainly interested in is an extensive database that is regularly updated, encompassing books, games, movies and series.

Things that I'd be super pleased to see:

  • Free and open source
  • Cross-platform
  • Database with non-English titles.
  • Collating info across different language names of the same work.
  • Autocomplete for title input and smart suggestions if a title isn't found.
  • Unicode XML/CSV import and export.
  • Storing ratings and when the work was consumed.
  • If a website, ability to make the list private and a reasonable history of privacy-consciousness and security.
  • If a website, option to request backups to be e-mailed to me at regular intervals.
  • Doesn't make one's eyes bleed when one looks at it.

Things that are sort of like what I'm looking for, but only do 1 type of works.

How is this question is worse than, for example, this one superuser.com/questions/127503/… ? Of the 10 requirements I've noted, only 2 could be considered subjective (History of privacy-consciousness and inoffensive interface). –  kotekzot Mar 20 '12 at 20:56
You could check out the Mac-only Delicious Library and search for Windows alternatives for it. It's a media library indexing/tracking tool, but you could use it (and similar tools) for this as well. imediaman.com seems to be similar and might suit your task, I haven't tried it though. –  Daniel Beck Mar 21 '12 at 3:04
@DanielBeck thanks, these are certainly a step in the right direction, but they are more geared towards keeping track of one's collection, rather than of its consumption. –  kotekzot Mar 21 '12 at 3:25
