Hi everyone!

This update is for those who used to log in to KAT via Google and Facebook. These social networks have just turned off Open ID login, unfortunately.
From now on please either use the password that was sent to you after registration or use the password recovery option.
Login via Twitter and Yahoo still works fine!

In other news,
We have updated the header a little bit. If you got wide enough screen, feedback will be seen in the header, and not under your profile (if you don't have wide enough screen, it'll be shown under your profile drop down as before).
Bookmarks has a drop down with all subscription categories. And Social has been added in Community drop down so you got a quick link to social groups.

Hi everyone!

We are moving to now. As you know we change our domain regularly. Nothing more has been changed for you, so don't worry, you can use Kickass as usually, it's automatically redirected.

Hi all Kickass users!

Check out our new header!
We've started to change our website design and header is just the beginning!
Just a short brief about the new header:
- Responsive (it adjusts to your screen width)
- Feedback is to be seen under your avatar/username. When you got a torrent to give feedback, an orb will be shown next to your avatar.
- Messages; you can create and go to your dialog in dropdown. If you received a new message, it'll be displayed in the drop down as well!
- Browse: Hovering your mouse over browse will show you all our main categories. Clicking browse will send you to the browsing page.
If you don't wish to have the header following down the page, go to your settings and check 'unstick header'

As usual, more bugs were fixed and Kickass is very much better now.

Thanks everyone who helps us to improve KAT every day!

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:

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

13106 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!
