    Who would have believed it. Facebook has a Latin Language setting—and the like button is mihi placet!
    Looks like they have the same dilemma about imperative vs infinitive.

    What dilemma is that?
    Doesn't 'mihi placet' mean 'it pleases me'?

    Yes, though that could be translated as "I like it" in more natural English.


    You can set this forum to display in Latin, and the question is for things like "reply", "upload a file", whether imperatives or infinitives should be used.

    What do you think would work better?
    I think infinitives would make more sense

    I slightly prefer infinitives as well.
