What would make Kahoot! more awesome?

More character space for longer questions

Questions sometimes require more characters than allowed - I understand I can make a picture for very long ones, but that adds more steps and time to try and create a quick warm-up for class which means my teachers are not as likely to use Kahoot.

    I am creating a Kahoot to help me study for my private pilot exam in a few weeks but I can't do it because of the character limit. This would have been a much easier way to do it but I guess I can't now.

    Wow, I can't believe this hasn't been fixed yet. I was going to use this program for a school project, but this issue forces me to go with a competitor.

    Hey, I'm still a student in high school, and I've been putting together Kahoots for my FFA Natural Resources team, but the only questions I can ask are ID questions, because the test questions/answers are far too long for the limit. I can't shorten them enough without cutting out important words and confusing the tester. Please change ASAP!!

    PLEASE!!! Could be such a great resource, but the character limit is going to make me DUMB DOWN the questions. If the 95 character limit isn't addressed, Kahoot will only be good for party games and not for school.

    Quizizz has no character limit! Lagoon should consider that. More teacher will use quizizz so they can input longer questions

    As some member of the staff said 5 years ago, this is a top priority, they are just figuring out the complex algorythms involved. Believe it or not this is just as challenging as sending a human being to Mars. Just be patient, maybe you won't have access to this feature but likely your grandchildren will.

    We need more character for long questions. I use kahoot for questions about MIR exam.

    Interesting...in reading Kahoots response on how to make longer questions possible.
    Just make a separate document, screenshot it and put the screenshot into the question box?! This makes zero sense, what a waste of time......or Kahoot you could simply increase the character allotment!!

    The word restriction is extremely hard to work with. Why did I pay for this? Not impressed with Kahoot at this point.

    Kahoot, you're almost there...and then you add a character limit and you missed the mark, failing completely. Please read the feedback comments and consider your audience. Also, how about adding digital badges/achievements when quizzes are complete or completed with a certain percent, thereby adding the option for motivation for learners! On a separate note, the bright colors and style currently used is very engaging and helpful, so thanks for that.

    I have just landed here and read some of the comments as I too have found it restrictive - particularly as I asked my students to write/deign questions without realising there is a a character limit!! waste of mine and my students time!

    There is NO reason to limit the size of questions and answers. Someone within Kahoots has a strong opinion about the "best" way to teach and won't admit that the vast majority of users do NOT agree with their opinion at all. It seems so sad to take such a brilliant idea and learning tool like Kahoots and just cripple it so needlessly. Especially when making that change would be SOOOOOOO easy for the team to do. It seems like they could fix that with a few key strokes. If anyone from Kahoots does read this...come on folks. You know this doesn't make sense to anyone but you. Give your customers what they want not what you think they need.
