I hate to say it, but odds are that /kind/ is gone for good. I won't divulge any specifics; I can't say what is and isn't relevant, nor do I want to step on any toes. What I will say though, is that it's been coming for some time. The kind admin has been serving his post for many years. It would be very understandable if he's tired of managing the site.
Someone should consider creating a new /kind/ in the coming weeks. It's an old board that has been through a lot. It'd be a damn shame if it dies here and like this.
