  • If you don't want us to use your app, there are several other alternatives... why are you making things more difficult to use Kahoot?

  • Ok, so it got flagged because  one of the questions. I'm teaching my students about romanticism in literature. On of the authors ended up in prison for something minor. My Q was which od these authors ended up in prison.
    That's it. The word got flagged. So stupid

  • I wrote a fact about how in the 1800's there was a job as a "poo and wee" collector and this got flagged. How amusing!

  • Made 35 question quiz in the Estonian language, no foul language, no copyright violations, and got quarantined within minutes! AI  does falsely flagging!

    And i can't do anything to change it because there are no violations in it and it does not say why it was  quarantined! I don't know what to do. I am afraid to make next Kahoot quiz in Estonian language, because making 35 question quiz is an effort and what if it gets quarantined again for no reason whatsoever?


    PS: I sent an e-mail to support and this problem was solved (support is fast and helpful).  The word "pikk" (long) which caused it was completely harmless in Estonian language. In the context "pikk nina" (long nose) it was harmless as well. Automated detection system needs some tweaking and updating. Or it would be good if it at least showed to the creator what word is the culprit.

  • Got flagged again. 80's music quiz. This time figured it out myself: the culprit was singers actual name Tom Hooker. Had to remove his "naughty" name.

  • I am a teacher and my Kahoot got quarantined about 5 minutes before my class started, forcing me to come up with a new activity on the fly. The reason it was quarantined? The French word for "picnic" happens to have letters within it that spell a bad word in French. I am frustrated that I pay for this service and can't get a human being to override what is obviously an AI mistake.

  • I made a Kahoot for the book Code Talker, and it was flagged the second I saved it. I cannot change the language of most of my content without confusing my students. Why do we have to have this feature? Why not just stick to letting humans flag things if they see it? I changed some of the letters to "censor" certain words that I'm guessing got it flagged, so we'll see how that changes things. The words are in the book, so I don't think Kahoot has the right to make me change wording straight from the book. I dislike this feature GREATLY.

  • I made a Kahoot! for students learning a foreign language, and my game keeps on being placed on quarantine because one word vaguely resembles and English swear word (if it were grossly misspelt and mistyped). I have made multiple requests for the quarantine to be removed, but it either keeps on being placed back on quarantine or my requests are duly ignored. 

    Utter rubbish.
