Hello everyone!▼468 comments
We got some news for you. First of all due to an overwhelming number of fakes we decided to allow uploading of .RAR and .WMV files only for verified uploaders.
Second - with a heavy heart we decided to forbid uploading for all new users. If you want to up-load torrents, you will need to apply.
We understand that this might be an unpopular decision, but our goal has always been keeping KickassTorrents clean and friendly, so we have to restrict the upload feature and keep the people who use it to upload fakes or frauds out of our website.
Thank you for your understanding and stay tuned for more upcoming features!

Boys and girls of every age, would you like to see something... new?▼169 comments
1. The possibility to undo your like or dislike. It's been around for a while but now we got all the loose ends tied and you are free to use this helpful (and rep cheating safe) feature.
To undo your rating just click the rating option one more time.
2. Mark as read option for messages.
Everyone has them, so we decided that we need one too. You can find the option at the bottom of the page right next to the delete option.
3. We improved our achievements system and soon we'll offer a whole pile of them, so keep your eyes open.
As a bonus our magnificent mod team started their official competitions section in the community. Feel free to join in!
And a spooky Halloween to you lads and lassies!

Finally with the Summer coming to an end we are ready to roll out some awesome new features!▼220 comments
1. New Messages
They're still in beta, but this system has way more potential than the old one and in time we will develop it into a modern messaging similar to dialogue messaging in social networks. Right now you can either use the messaging button, or just enter the recipients in the upper field in the Create New tab and initiate a dialogue with one of the fellow KAT users. Your new history will displayed in form of an easily editable dialogue and in time we will improve this system both visually and from the inside.
For a while you will also have access to the old messaging system but we will soon remove it completely, so if you really want to keep your old messaging history, go over to our forum and vote.
2. Search in Bookmarks
3. New Media Type: Book!
Hopefully this will help to organise most of the books that people upload here.

We had to drop Kat.ph as a part of our global maintenance and move to Kickass.to. This was a hard decision, but it was necessary for the further development of KickassTorrents. Stay tuned for more news.▼931 comments

After our huge maintenance we finally started adding the new awesome features! First of them is a new chat option. From now on you can chat with any online user by clicking an icon under his or her avatar. The chat option is still in beta, so no chat history is saved. Be sure not to discuss important stuff there and use the PM's if you need to contact a mod or staff member.
And of course the usual Bugfix Menu.
upd. You can chat only with your friends!

The time has come and KAT is having the largest server maintenance ever.▼215 comments
We're reworking huge parts of the website and optimising things under the hood to improve your KAT experience and add some tech potential for our awesome upcoming features. Naturally this is a difficult process and some parts of the website might not be working correctly right now. The maintenance will be finished by Monday, so please hold your bug reports for a little while.
And be sure to check out Best Avatar Competition.

Hi everyone,▼320 comments
Today we had another minor release and few changes will be implemented with this one.
1. We decided to keep the vote limits, since we had no serious response and the poll showed that less that only few hundreds of our users want the limit removed.
2. We removed rep for posting comments on profile walls. This will hopefully stop the mindless rep abuse that we currently have.
3. You can check out the votes by clicking on the vote count.
Also don't forget to check out our Promo Vid Contest!
About the response. Seriously guys, 250 people on a website that has like 200k registered active users. That's just not the number of people that can make a difference, not even 0.5%. If you really want your opinions to be heard, try rallying more supporters.

Hi everyone,▼188 comments
We've been getting some negative feedback about the new limit on likes (20 + 1 like per each 1000 of reputation points), so we've decided to make a small vote on this. Our initial goal was to stop people from like and rep abuse and also stop the mindless mass likes that we currently observe (even the cooldown is not helping anymore). So we need you opinions and if we get lot's of them, we'll think of a new limit for likes.
Please vote here.
