Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Here are few quotes from the article:
Torrents Day is upon us once again. This most special of days, March 30th. When asked to go out into KAT world and dig up a story for this issue I was armed with only one piece of information – talk to Mr.Pink146.89K .

Asked if he is aware if the day is marked with any of the other Torrent sites Mr. Pink said:

“A lot of users between sites jump back and forward and I reckon every torrent site has given it a mention on that day. Extratorrents gives it some backing every year also. Its nice to know the day isn’t just restricted to kickasstorrents because the day is aimed at all pirates from around the world.”

Mr. Pink says it makes him very proud to see that Torrents Day continues to get bigger and better - as a result bigger sites are giving it recognition all around the world. With admin and staff from KAT continuing to have competitions and achievements each year it brings more and more traffic to the site to upload and download, “And that’s what we want. It’s these users that are important and make the site what it is, so as always, we will be expecting high numbers for traffic on this day and of course, we want the users to enjoy being here.”

In a brief interview with Mr.Gooner293.63K , he replied:

“Well there's no doubt that Torrents Day was a genius idea, bringing everyone together & creating a tradition we will always remember. Therefore it's definitely something I/we believe should be continued yearly grabbing as much attention as possible. A torrent site of course encourages users to upload torrents and a day like Torrents Day is the perfect way in every way. Users uploading on the day should at least be added to the small text in the rules as I am sure you will ALL agree.”


Don't forget we have plenty more fun, games and competitions..

KAT staff is wishing Mr.Pink146.89K a Happy Birthday and everyone to have a great Torrents Day! ;)

Jessica Sutta: press release exclusively for Kickass

16006 views    posted 03 Dec 2014, 12:26 by KickassTorrents    
Psss, wanna some candy? ;)

When the Pussycat Dolls called it quits in 2010, group member Jessica Sutta shifted her focus to her solo career and has continued to make a buzz with her dance hits “Show Me,” “Again,” and “Lights Out" as well as featuring on Dave Aude's track "Make it Last" and Paul Van Dyk's "White Lies."

Watch Jessica strut her stuff in the “Candy” music video, here on Kickass. The singer lives up to the song’s title, surrounding herself with all things sweet — lollipops, Mike & Ikes, gumballs, and peppermint sticks. “Candy” is from Jessica’s forthcoming album, Feline Resurrection, which includes production from Rico Love, Benny Cassette, and S-X. Though "Candy" is more familiar territory in terms of sound, Jessica is excited to share the diversity and edginess of the unchartered territory she ventures into with the rest of the album.

Though Jessica has had 3 number 1 songs on the Billboard Dance Charts as an independent artist in the US, she has yet to crossover fully and become a household name like the Dolls were collectively. The cool thing about Jessica is that she has refused to take the shortcuts offered to her through the reality TV route and other avenues that she says would have prevented her from being in tune with her moral compass, just to get ahead.

"There are so many ways to get noticed in this business. It's so corrupt and i've witnessed what happens if you kiss the right asses and well…. do other things with the "right" people…. Lets just say I would rather lead with music and performance which is what I love and do it at whatever pace I can, without losing my integrity. I love to wear sexy, skimpy outfits and be adventurous with my looks but it doesn't mean i'm willing to sell my soul for accelerated success. Ultimately the goal is to be happy right? How could I ever be happy knowing I am not being the best person I can be," says the pop star exclusively to Kickass!

Jessica's response when asked about why she is making the song available for free download: "I am more of the Dave Grohl school of thought when it comes to giving away music. Times have changed and you have to be prepared to change your business model with the times. Most kids nowadays get their music for free. Why fight that? I would rather embrace it and make sure they at least get the high quality versions of the songs. More importantly, I would rather get my songs heard by many who downloaded them for free rather than to sell it to a fraction of that number. As an artist, I want my art to be heard. I want my art to be seen. If I can connect with more people through this avenue, then I am all for it."

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.

Upd. November, 2014

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:
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!
