How does content get flagged?
Only public content is subject to moderation. We have three moderation methods in action:
- AI scans for words or phrases often used inappropriately
- Moderators search for inappropriate content
- Kahoot!'ers like yourself can flag inappropriate content
What is and is not allowed in a kahoot?
Generally, we're happy to allow content that has clear academic value, does not contain personal information and strives for objectivity. Our Acceptable Use Policy outlines that it's the responsibility of every user to ensure their content is not:
- Illegal, threatening, defamatory, abusive, harassing, degrading, intimidating, fraudulent, deceptive, invasive, racist, or contains any type of suggestive, inappropriate, or explicit language which;
- Infringes on any trademark, patent, trade secret, copyright, or other proprietary rights;
- Contains any type of unauthorized or unsolicited advertising;
- Impersonates any person or entity, including any Kahoot! AS employees or representatives.
What do the different moderation statuses mean?
Once flagged, our moderation team will review your kahoot (usually within 24 hours) to determine if it should be quarantined or approved.
- Flagged: You can edit, delete, and play your kahoot. It’s accessible to everyone who has a direct link to it, though it can't be found through the Discover page. You will receive in-platform notices about this.
- Quarantined: You can only edit or delete your kahoot. It’s not accessible to anyone but you. You will receive an email as well as in-platform notices about this.
- Approved: You can edit, delete, play and share your kahoot like normal. It cannot be flagged until after you’ve edited it.
