Good quiz, I went all around Quetzalcoatl without actually spelling it correctly.

Here's the regex we used: ^Q(U|EU|UE)TZ[A-Z]+C[A-Z]+L

So, if you can interpret that, you'll see that we accept tons of different answers.

I luckily got it the first try, but if I couldn't get it, I was heading to google for the spelling.

No critique, just my personal version/idea but I would go for : quet(s/z)-t-l . Or something like that, so require the "quet" atleast and not the c in the middle (that sound could in theory come from a q or even k).

Edit: not sure what I ended up typing, but it was accepted, but often are tempted to type quetzequatl (after which I try it with a c and/ or coatl). Anyway I think if you want people to (slowly) start to learn the correct spelling, the best place to start is to have them type atleast the first bit vorrectly ;)

Not sure that particular view of the Hotel Frontenac is really the best depiction of the city it lies in. There are plenty of pictures that could be found showing the hotel at the top of the hill with the lower part of the city below, which would work much better.

haha! I remembered the first part of Quetzalcoati, then I literally typed a bunch of random keys because I couldn't remember the rest ... and it was accepted. =D

Scrolling down on my phone on the rare oddities in history that start with Q, Dan Quayle rolls into view in all his official portrait glory.
