Changes in music section
A Kickass update was released yesterday and we are happy to announce that we've updated Torrent Media Types with Music and others were also improved. There is also an opportunity to add Artists to Bookmarks now.
Super users and higher can change categories
The update brought a new tool to our trusted Super Users and Translators, category changer. Now SU and Translators can help out the site by changing torrents to their rightful category.
With this 3 new achievements was released with it
Disable viewing of animated user pics
For some people running animated images can take much resources of your computer, hence why we have added the opportunity to disable such user pics.
This is accessible via settings > general > check 'Disable animated userpics'
A lot of bugs were fixed as well.

Hello everyone!▼679 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 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?▼174 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!▼219 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.▼926 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!
