The Good, the Bad and the Fake!

A small clarification!
We noticed that some of our users still think that the Thumbs Down symbol means that torrent is a fake. This is wrong! Right now the report fake option is separated and the Thumbs are used to rate the quality of the torrent. If you happen to like or dislike the quality of the torrent, description or seeding speed use the thumbs, to report a fake - use the button.

Have a great weekend!

Hi everyone!
We expect to add lots of new features this summer so keep an eye on our blog if you are interested; this week we have:
1. Tagcloud was optimized for better results and from now on it can be hidden with a special button.
2. Reported torrent sign now arrives in comments.
(anyway our mod team works so fast, that you won't even see any of these :))
3. Just two words - IRC Chat!
(a link can be found at the bottom of the page)
4. And finally we added a special defense mechanism for mass actions. From now on if any kind of action like commenting or likes is performed too fast, the website will block the user with a shot timeout. Normal users will hardly get such timeouts, but this will definitely be a huge issue for spammers.
Plus the usual bugfix.
A large language update will also be coming this month.

All the Mess Caused by the Domain Change

Hi everyone,
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!
