Common vs Latin name in card trivia text

Post  dcb on Thu Sep 23, 2010 2:46 pm

Of the six cards on today's front page, half use the common name and half use the Latin name of the organism in the card's trivia text. Is this intentional? I notice you've standardized on the Latin name in the Special Ability text.

Common name:

http://phylogame.org/2010/09/21/antarctic-krill/
http://phylogame.org/2010/09/20/marbled-polecat/

Latin name:
http://phylogame.org/2010/09/22/common-blackbird/
http://phylogame.org/2010/09/17/ethiopian-wolf-2/
http://phylogame.org/2010/09/16/wild-boar/

I can't think of any good arguments one way or the other, was just wondering if anyone is paying attention to this detail.

No, not intentional - just a mistake - the plan is to use the latin name wherever possible!

Hmmm... except maybe the Krill one, which has a more generalized blurb...
