  • 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.

  • This has to be the worst AI ever.  I have no pictures in the Kahoot and all of the questions are spelled correctly and only have to deal with the muscular system and muscular contractions.

  • IF you can flag and quarantine my kahoot using an algorithm and e-mail about it, why can't you email me the question number so I can delete it and teach. I'd rather lose one question because your system is poorly constructed than have to come up with a whole new lesson plan minutes before class starts. THis is supposed to be a helpful site. This has happened to me twice now and I'm about ready to stop using this platform out of frustration.

  • Terrible feature. I cannot get my kahoots out of quarantine and can only assume it is due to the fact that it is discussing "Master and slave nodes" regarding radio components. It is the nomenclature of the components. I have tried respelling everything but still no use. Blanket quarantining everything is not a solution.

  • Getting flagged without any reasons is frustrating.  I teach first grade and use this as a spelling assessment where I purposely misspell things and the kids have to pick the correct spelling.  I need to you to tell me exactly why I was flagged without having to go through all the hassle of emailing and waiting to see what is wrong.

  • Why can't the AI un-quarantine my quiz, after I eliminate the words that triggered the AI?  If it's good enough to find a word & lock me & my students out of the Kahoot, why can't it see that the word is gone & re-open it?

    This is a major flaw in the overzealous AI...might need to find another platform if I can't trust Kahoot to let me actually use the quizzes I make when I'm on a time crunch.

  • Strange things are happening here, since I just made a quiz in which musical instruments are named... nothing harmful I should think. But some bot thninks otherwise and we'll just have to dig it?
