Why hello there, Satan.
'Unlike' as a verb didn't really exist before the specific internet sense, did it? (A couple of examples of it meaning 'displease' in the 14th century notwithstanding.)
Iam non placet?
Do people use it because they have changed their mind, or because they clicked it by mistake?
In the second case you could have another option: "re vera numquam placuit".
I use it because I've clicked by mistake, and then worry that the poster will receive an alert that I've liked it, notice I've withdrawn it, and subsequently hate me forever.
At the moment I have Abduc Approbationem, but even that is a bit long...
I have changed the reply link to an infinitive. Does that look better? If we put volo after it, all the buttons and links will get pretty long.
I like how it looks now.
I think infinitives would work in general, like mittere responsum (or respondere?), indicare, observare conloquium.
I think the infinitive is probably the best option in many cases. I don't think volo is necessary.
I was going to say something about only the French doing the j'aime thing, but I thought I ought to see if this was in fact the case. It looks as though there are a variety of ways of treating it (Dutch just says 'nice', for instance), but one thing that surprised me was that there doesn't appear to be a German-language version of Facebook. Another was that there is a Latin one. You're all going to have fun quibbling, aren't you?
Everyone knows Germans prefer feisbüch anyway.
That's German. Dutch uses leuk.
I suppose it's just Book in Saudi Arabia.
Sorry, it was a flippant suggestion.
Whilst everyone is so infused with enthusiasm: How about "Upload a File", "More Options", "Inbox"?
Maybe: onerare codicillum, plus optionis, scrinium.
plus optionis or plus optionum?
Go to first unread?
Looking through the definitions for optio, it seems to mean 'ability to choose' rather than a specific choice.
Legere primum illectorum, maybe ?
