    Double D was banned but Viral lifted the ban and removed his mod status. since then, hes gone off and joined the military or something like that. I guess we could just add their money to the pot and split it among the members that are still here.

    I never said it's a confirmation, I just meant that it's evidence that it might be Ilum. I'm not counting chickens before they hatch here.
    Keep in mind that this still isn't a confirmation. We have to wait until the release of the movie at the earliest to give him the money or send it elsewhere.

    If you post off topic, in a negative way, post deliberate ratings against another member's post etc.

    In the case of the former mod and blog writer, he created a fake account and started spreading false rumors. Even fooling some of the other mods in his con.

    But to answer your other question, yes you can still make a bet. I guess I misunderstood pomojema.

    This is the part that made me think that you had confirmed this.

    Ah! I see. Just don't forget about the "implication" part. It's not a confirmation just yet.

    Oh, what the heck. I'll put down 400 credits to say that it is Ilum.

    I say that it is not, as Wookieepedia lists each as two different places. We will debate among staff...

    We have no way of knowing for sure, but given that there is no mention of Kyber Crystals whatsoever in TFA, we can presume that the planets are not one and the same. The geography doesn't look similar, either - while SKB has forests, Illum has lots and lots of snow and large ice formations. The implication is that SKB is not Illum.

    And now there's confirmation from an official source: Starkiller Base is, as the OP speculated, not Ilum! Starkiller Base's orbit was stationed near that planet, however.

    @Darth Lexor Kai, show the winners their fabulous prizes (which includes some of my money - be thankful I bet against this, or you guys wouldn't have gained a damn thing)!
