What does that have to do with the Ylla? --DekutullaZM 20:14, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

There is a character called Ylla in that book. I checked the link. --RoyboyX 21:08, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

KrytenKoro, did you personally check MPT and verify this yourself before deciding to merge the pages without telling anyone? ChozoBoy [ADMIN] (Talk/Contribs) 04:12, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

I can check again if you want, but that's what it looked like to me. Also, why did you readd the two trivia points? They are largely nonsensical (and I mean this about the phrasing, too). "Ilya" is not pronounced anything like "Ylla" would be, and the only possible connection is that they both had a "y" written as a "v" in Corruption.Glorious CHAOS! 06:06, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

The issue was that we were waiting for someone to carefully examine the source before we took the anonymous tip, and you merged the pages without using the talk page at all. Secondly, nobody said anything about them being "pronounced" the same. They are obviously both anagrams of both words. The other point had a species with the same name from a famous science fiction book by a famous author. (Fahrenheit 451?) ChozoBoy [ADMIN] (Talk/Contribs) 08:27, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

I didn't realize it still needed to be discussed on the talk pages, since both articles already reflected the nature of the merge. I apologize. To be fair, I had checked lore transcripts on gamefaqs, and they also claimed it was spelled "Ylla".

As for them not being "pronounced" the same - that claim wasn't at all reflected in the trivia note (The trivia note was nonsensical in its phrasing, as I said before.), and they are not anagrams. That is a capital "i", not a second "L".

Also, considering the nature of the game, and especially the scanning aspect, why couldn't the animal photographer be a reference as well? It's also Finnish for "Above", which fits well with it being an "ascended race". Really, there's no reason to think it can only refer to an unhappy Martian housewife.Glorious CHAOS! 08:48, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

Visual anagrams, then. The photographer wasn't quite as relevant. Finnish is fine to add. Just try to use the talk pages when you get the chance, because we can all work better through discussion. :) ChozoBoy [ADMIN] (Talk/Contribs) 09:08, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for checking, KK. It was very helpful. ChozoBoy [ADMIN] (Talk/Contribs) 05:27, June 18, 2010 (UTC)
