Twitch.tv - the most popular streaming video games platform - has been continuously making this platform as interesting as possible. Whereas the main motto of this platform is to let gamers broadcast their games to other people who love to watch live streaming of video games, this platform has a chat window enabled as well. Using that chat window, players and watchers can communicate with emoticons - the best and the fast method of sharing emotions by making a variety of faces, smileys, etc. Kappa is one such emoticons of twitch.tv platform, which has a story attached with it.
The name Kappa, is in fact dedicated to the former employee of justin.tv (twitch.tv was a part of justin.tv until 2011). Name of that employee was Josh Kappa. After he left justin.tv, an emote was developed and named Kappa. Since then Kappa emoticon is being used in twitch.tv to express trolling smile. It is also used to convey sarcasm, simple mischief, etc. However, it is mainly used after trollish comments to convey a troll smile. It is mostly used when the player misses a chance in the game.
Nowadays, KappaHD is available as well. If you play games on twitch.tv, stream live games, and also participate in conversation with the player via the chat window, use Kappa emoticon to convey a troll smile at the end of the sentence you write. When you type Kappa into the Twitch.tv chat window, Kappa icon will appear. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:39, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Golden Kappa is also an emote but is given to 1 random Twitch.tv user every day or every month. The selection is randomly but rumours has said that it is given to 1 random user on twitch.tv every month. The golden Kappa is just like the normal Kappa, the golden Kappa is an enhanced version of Kappa with added gold around the emote. It is said that if you have the Golden Kappa and write it on twitch stream, you will get modded for a whole day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:37, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
Over the last two or three years, I've had to revert dozens of anon editors trying to add something about an "emote" called kappa used on some online platform called Twitch.tv. None of these anon contributors has ever made any attempt to actually explain what that thing is, let alone provide sources for it. But whatever it may be, it doesn't belong here. This is the article about the Greek letter "κ", nothing else. It is not an article about other unrelated things that also happen to be also called "kappa". That would be an issue of WP:disambiguation, if anything (i.e. if that Twitch usage was independently notable enough to be mentioned in some other relevant article of its own, which apparently it isn't, since there are no independent sources discussing it.) As far as I can tell, the Twitch thing has no relation to the Greek letter whatsoever; the emote is never signified by the actual letter "κ" but merely by the Latin-letter string "kappa"; as such, it simply doesn't belong in this article in any form. Everybody pease stop adding it. Fut.Perf. ☼ 09:49, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
