Also, just to add on to what's been said about getting prefixes approved, Greg has mentioned that it's much easier to get prefixes approved than whole names. On the subject of Vo-Matoran, I like it. It might not actually have anything to do with Voriki, but in my mind it does. :P

Keep in mind that if Star Trek fans had, as a group, said, "No point in talking about this anymore, it's never going to come back," it never WOULD have come back.
-- Greg Farshtey


Once Star Trek ended - pfft! - the network didn't care about it anymore, nobody cared about it anymore and it was the fans that kept it alive until finally someone turned around and said "You know what? There's a whole mess of people out there who like this. Let's do something with it again. It was a lot of years - a lot of years went by - before that happened. But if the fans shrug their shoulders and are like "Pfft! I don't care about this anymore and I'll just forget about it," then everybody else is going to forget about it, too. So the only people who - the Lego company can't do it - the only people who can keep the flame alive is the fans ... It's something only fans can do.

Vo as in Voriki? :P...Joking aside, I have an actual question: will the results from the popularity poll still be made EM canon (as a secondary prefix, perhaps?), or will this take precedence?

Time is beyond relative here.

There's no reason not to put lasers in the palms of planet-sized robots. In fact, if I had my own planet-sized robot, palm lasers would be one of my first upgrades. It's good for self-defense if you're attacked by something big.

Does this mean any newly canonized prefixes will have to be from a previous list such as the names of the Kraata and Kraana types?

If so, let's see, what would the options be...Krana:XaVuYoSuZaCaJa (Similar to Jo which is winning the Magnetism poll... perhaps even better as it avoids Joe :P)Bo (is one popular option for plants, currently coming in at a closeish second in the poll)Kraata:Za (as a copy from the Krana, probably best not to use it a third time methinks)UlYeXi (similar to Xe which won second for Plasma, although the top choice, Io, I would think would not present legal issues, as it's the name of a real-life moon)Vo (now taken)CuThere's also Va, perhaps.

I'll tell you this: Prefixes do not have to go through legal. I asked him weeks ago because of what I noticed about Psionics and its prefix Ce-. Psionics was given its prefix way too quickly for legal to say "yeah, go ahead it's fine to use it."

That's interesting... so any kind of prefix can be canonized...

Well, there still has to be a general consensus, and what better way to achieve that than through official canonisation?Or we could have informal agreements on BZP... but informal... hmm..

He may have just been assuming so (better safe than sorry kind of thing) before but later found out it's not necessary for two-letter things.

I feel bad for the matoran of plantlife, they might end up being called bo-bo matoran by other elements :P
