    We've just been discussing how to translate Like/Unlike to Russian.
    Hm, any version sounds not good or consists of too many letters to be a button and Unlike is really impossible for a translation less than of two words.
    I guess many localizations will surely stuck at this point.
    Meanwhile "+1" became a common interforum phrase with a meaning of "i like your idea, but i've got nothing to add" which seems to be similar to "Like".
    "-1" then could be an international "Unlike" edition.

    ?

    well if labeling it +1 works for you wouldn't labeling it as 0 (zero) be the same as taking your like away. I like zero for it as -1 seems to intend taking respect from someone and this setup only allows to take what you have already given. Not to mention to a lot of english speaking people anyways, -1 seems more like discredit instead of lack of enthusiasm which is what I think the whole purpose of the system was anyway...to avoid offending someone, My opinion, we're on computers here...might as well keep it classic and make it 1 and 0 for liking and removing one. If I'm understanding you wrong...please explain.

    Or just use the international Thumbs up and Mushroom cloud images to substitute :)

    Did you think of the Russian translation for 'nice'? Since that would work for us in Dutch ('leuk'). It's also translated that way in the Dutch Facebook version.

    I don't like the unlike or dislike idea, at all.

    I prefer like and hope it remains that way. A lot of none techie people don't understand +1.

    I think it's not good for the forum atmosphere to have it anyway. But IF I would have to translate, I would probably use something like 'disagree' (oneens in Dutch).

    You can either use thumbs up/down or you can do something like "Нравится/Не нравится"

    What's the problem with "Нравится" vs. "Не нравится"?
    How does Facebook say that in Russian?
