We lied to you and we actually made some more changes this week! The Settings got a new look and also from now on you can block users from sending you messages or leaving comments on your wall (yes, yes, we're getting more social).▼114 comments
Anyway! See you next year! Have a great New Years Eve and don't forget about two more special achievements!

Today we did probably the final KAT release this year. It was a big year with lots of ups and downs, but it was a very very good year for us. Today KickassTorrents is widely recognized as one of the best and most advanced torrent search engines, but even more improvements are already planned for next year!▼71 comments
We want to thank everyone who helps us with the website. Over the last years our staff members, mod team and translators have done a huge amount of work that not just pushed our website to a whole new level, but made it a community and a second home for millions of people. Without you we would never get this far! Thank you!
We want to thank our uploaders, users and all the people who visit and contribute to this website!
Finally we want to quote on of our users:
"Kat is not a website, it's a lifestyle!"
Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!
And one more thing.
This year we decided to make a small presents to our users. With this release we added a new type of achievements - unique and rare achievements. They look a little different from our current ones and they can be unlocked only for some special activity. Currently there are three of them and all three are tied to this Christmas and New Years Eve. Of course we won't tell you how to earn them, but the most KAT-addicted people will surely end up with one or two (just don't forget to set your timezone in settings!)

In November we decided to make something new in the rights section. First of all we have re-written the rules (they will be online in 12-24 hours) and second we added an appeal option for all banned users. From now on if you were wrongfully banned, you can appeal to our mods and might get the ban lifted!▼47 comments

You might have noticed that some time ago some websites and anti-viruses started labeling KAT.ph as a malware infected website. Unfortunately for a short period of time this was true. We were using the OpenX platform for showing our ads and at some point this platform became compromised and started replacing our normal ads with infected ones. In this difficult situation we decided to stop using the OpenX platform, so from now on the website is officially 100% safe!▼91 comments
We want to apologize to our users that suffered damage from this issue and we will do our best to avoid such problems in future.
Thanks you for your support and understanding!
