Hey everybody!

Kickass has been released today and here are the changes:
- As usual, lots of bugs were fixed;
- The idea ‘Request Torrent Button at Uploader Wall’ was completed. Now you are allowed to request torrents from Uploader’s profile.
Its benefits:
1. Uploader gets a quick request and can either complete it or delete if needed;
2. It’s easy for User to request a torrent rather then to visit forum and waste time seeking for the right post there;
3. This feature helps an Uploader to gain reputation points by completing the request;

- Now Users have the possibility to fill missing summaries for all media types;

- Chat was restyled and Users have the possibility to minimize it;

- There were 5 new languages added to Kickass:
Albanian;
Hebrew;
Thai;
Swahili;
Bosnian-Cyrillic.

Special thanks to those who participate in translating new and old languages, finding bugs, suggesting good ideas!
Thanks to all of you for being with us!

New Uploading Policy

13026 views    posted 31 Jan 2014, 20:16 by KickassTorrents    
Hello everyone!
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 upload 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.

All users registered before January 31st 2014 have upload rights. Only users registered after this date will have to apply for upload privileges.

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?

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!

New Messaging System Beta!

4334 views    posted 21 Aug 2013, 14:08 by KickassTorrents    
Finally with the Summer coming to an end we are ready to roll out some awesome new features!

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.
