This is what I came here to ponder. I know mythology never interested me and I bombed out in the percentile, but is it some gamer nerd thing the young whippersnappers know about these days. At least I recognize the other words, the ones that don't look like me an eye chart.

Can confirm the current type-in is: ^YG+D[A-Z]+L, so it feels safe enough to say that it's probably not because of the type-in.

Strange to find Scientology reference here, next to ancient mythological figures. Why not then add Lord of the Rings or Pastafarism ?

Well, if it's gonna be mostly greek mythology... Might as well make one full quizz for greek, and then others for other cultures ? And one with diverse sources ? I wouldn't mind seeing something about slavic or polynesian mythology (since I know practically nothing of it) (Also, the rabbit thing, is it really mythology ? I'd say it's just folklore... There's no story, character or anything associated with it, just a popular belief/tradition.)

Could "valholl" (or valhöll but we're all lazy and don't use accents) be accepted as a type-in for valhalla ? It is the standard name in Old Norse and in modern Icelandic. Yeah I know no one cares lol

"Don't be a whiner" - It's a valid point, though. You might as well name it European mythology, because that's what it really is for the most part. Could have included quite a lot more elements of Asian and African myths. Being culturally inclusive is both enlightening and balanced.
