    Today some students were writing insults to me (the teacher) as their Kahoot name. Is it possible for me to identify students when they do this?

    I wonder why the nickname, "Ninja Boy", is restricted.

    Same, how can I determine who has used inappropriate names?

    Is there a way to delete inappropriate names when they log into a challenge?

    Please make the name connect to a valid email address that shows up on the report, That way when students use the Kahoot and use inappropriate names- it will attach their email address to that inappropriate name.

    You need to make a way to associate inappropriate names with student email addresses

    As kids are signing in to the Kahoot, I notice someone signing over 30 times with a name, thereby flooding my kahoot.  How can I prevent this?

    As above- teachers MUST have a way to identify inappropriate users.  I have just found my top scores includes "n word", and "n*gga".  Seriously?  Searching for an answer to where I figure out which kids did this I didn't find anything helpful.  I did find webpages with plenty of suggested bad names though- looks like your filter could use an upgrade:

    https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Kahoot%20Names

    I won't be using Kahoot again during this pandemic closure unless I know that there's a way to prevent this or identify the guilty person.  What a great product (with a thoroughly vital let down inside).

    How how do I delete a student once the challenge has started if they use an inappropriate name. This is a major issue for me and sadly may have to stop using Kahoot! if it isn’t possible
