Hi everyone,▼122 comments
First of all we want to apologize for the latest issues on the website that occurred after the domain change. We really wanted to rewrite some of the important parts like upload, so that our users could enjoy a better KAT on our new domain. We prepared a huge release, but unfortunately some parts of this update went wrong and we had few large issues. At this moment everything is fixed and you can use all of our features.
Thanks to everyone who supported us in this difficult moment and not just sailed away to look for a better site! We feel that we really owe to our users and we did our best to restore all the functionality as soon as possible!
Also a huge thanks to our mod team for taking a lot of heat and pressure from the users! Keep up guys and thanks for your amazing work!

From the early beginnings KickassTorrents had an interest in helping independent artists and labels. Of course over the years we faced lots of problems and the art part became not much of a top priority. But today as an established platform and we are ready to help people in legally spreading their art with help of torrents. Last week first two labels joined our new program.▼20 comments
"We're a socially oriented, self-funded company in the San Francsico Bay area. Our goal is to support sharing by Content Creators and to promote open culture in a sustainable way. "
"BOSTON8BIT is a chiptune/8bit net-label which features concerts and album releases from some of the top chiptune/video-game dance music acts on the East Coast (USA). We're going to be distributing exclusive content and high-quality artist releases through KAT because, well, KickAssTorrents kicks ass!"
We are always ready to support independent art and media and more details will follow!
Also we are happy that one off our first art partners is a 8bit label, because some of our staff members are into chiptune music!

Yesterday we opened our new domain KickassTorrents.ph!▼32 comments
It is not a secret that today everything related to torrents gets a lot of heat from various organizations. So for the safety of our users and to secure the work of KickassTorrents we will in time lose the .com address. For now it is more of an alternative and KickassTorrents.com will remain intact for some time, but we really recommend our users to switch to KickassTorrent.ph.

We did a lot of optimization work and another big bugfix! So the main changes are:▼33 comments
1. The refreshing speed of seed/leech ratio was improved, now it is close to every 2 hours, which is practically real-time. :)
2. Parts of the website got inner optimization and now the performance on some pages was improved by 1037%!
Don't be surprised if you see some pages working faster!
