Identifying the placeholders[edit]

Could one be any more thus?

How is this supposed to identify one as a placeholder? What's the difference between this and a phrase where the word "one" is expected? Davilla 15:47, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

  1. How did "thus" get in there?
    I had introduced it a long long time ago. Don't worry, missing a detail or two proves you're not a robot. Davilla
  2. Since when do we identify placeholders any differently than the rest of the component terms? All headword component words are supposed to be wikified, last I heard.
    Last I heard anything was when you told me, also a long long time ago. But absolute statements can hardly consider corner cases. I don't know what the policy is. What I know is it doesn't make sense to apply it to placeholders. Davilla
  3. And why is the "C" capitalized? --Connel MacKenzie T C 15:53, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
    Should probably be moved to could someone be any more. Or is it could somebody be and more instead? Davilla 16:26, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

could one be any more[edit]

No actual definition that I can make out. SemperBlotto 21:05, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Indeed, looking at the RFD debate listed on the talk page, this passed an RFD in 2008 without a definition. I can't see a way of defining it without moving it to could someone be any more something (genuinely), with a meaning such as {{non-gloss definition|Indicates that someone is very something}}. Sad but true. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:43, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Delete. Our mission is to include every word in every language. Nobody has said anything (2.6 M Google hits for this one!) about every popular phrase, especially if they are SoP. --Hekaheka 10:52, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Delete per what the others have written, just above, especially Hekaheka.​—msh210 (talk) 16:21, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
I couldn't agree more with the above comments. I remain disappointed and frustrated that we don't have a phrasebook with actual criteria for inclusion in which some forms of this could possibly belong (but only in particular complete-in-themselves exemplars, I hope).
