So, what gender are superhumanly intelligent computer programs? That's the first of the usages I cited.

On Adam / Lilith: I can relent to the "she" concept, but it's not my favorite. "She" and "He" are used to distinguish between sexual creatures.

The matter of biological sex would be addressed in the relevant theory page(s). (Who wants to tackle that monstrosity? Har har har.)

In regards to the gender of the Seeds it should be a pretty straightforward manner.
No, I don't mean that at all. I just feel that the more ambiguous theory aspects are my strength (as well as articles, analysis and essays and the ideas I addressed above). I don't mind working on the cut-and-dry stuff at all.Reichu wrote:Wha, you mean you don't want to write any "dry" stuff?
Which makes writing a definitive encyclopedia on it all the more difficult. *sigh*Reichu wrote:THIS IS NGE NOTHING IS STRAIGHTFORWARD.
Technically, yes. But only in the most technically technical aspect.Reichu wrote:Besides, you're talking about their sex, which is technically a different thing than "gender".
Absolutely, and I'm in favor of "she" too - if for no other reason than ease. I'm just saying we need something that addresses the "technicalities" of this issue.Reichu wrote:Calling mother-entities "she" for aesthetic/whatever purposes is legal. Majority are in favor of "she" anyway, so this one is probably closed.
That's a good question. We all have our own quirks when addressing things within NGE, and coming to a consensus on what to use when working on Wiki may be the toughest part of the preliminary process. I won't even bring up my own Lance / Spear hangup...Reichu wrote:But, uh, what happens when, say, random stuff I've written on Angels gets adapted into Wiki-content or something?

Either that or make every Ve in the Wiki link to a page about GNPs. I like Ve ... but it did confuse me for a long time. Obfuscation (Obscurification?) should be avoided.Since there doesn't seem to be any sweeping support for blessed GNPs, I don't seem to have much of a choice but put a stamp on "its" for Angels #3~#16.

Does the way this passage is written sound okay?
(I know that there already is a Sachiel writeup in place but I think the Angel writeups need some serious cleaning)
