Interesting to have {lIn} with a single subject, as it's my understanding that {lIn} is more "share (among a group)", while {bon} is "share (one's own resources with beneficiaries)".
It makes sense, though, as information isn't really a finite quantity. Also, I suppose a singular subject doesn't necessarily imply a single party. "The computer system participates in the sharing. As do the users, but we're not really interested in them here."

I suppose you might also use:

= "You have become disconnected."

= "You have successfully logged off."

= "You have been kicked."

{DalInHa'moHlu' rIntaH.}
= "You have been banned."

(Although in a more jovial sense, I kind of like the idea of using {Qol} for kick, and {HIchDal} for "the ban-hammer".)

Subject: [tlhIngan Hol] info from Maltz: some not new words

These aren't new words, but I thought people might be interested in Maltz's suggestions on how existing words might be used.

To my suggestion that the "random" button (which brings up a random entry) might be labeled {SuD}.

--- begin quote ---
Yes. Use {SuD}.
--- end quote ---

One of the features in {boQwI'} is qurgh's Klingon Word Of The Day, which schedules a download daily from the KAG server when the app is online. This led to the following three comments:

--- begin quote ---
For "feature," is there any reason not to use {laH} "ability"?
--- end quote ---

--- begin quote ---
When a computer (computer system) is "online," it's said to be "sharing," so make use of {lIn}.  ("Offline," then, would make use of {lInHa'}.)
--- end quote ---

--- begin quote ---
"Schedule" in this sense is the same as "plan," so make use of {nab}.
--- end quote ---

There's actually just s slight bit more, but as it's an ongoing discussion the words aren't finalised so I'll hold off on the parts that Maltz are unsure about for now. (I agreed with Maltz that {laH} expresses what I wanted with "feature", which is why I thought it's okay to release it even though what he wrote was phrased as a question.)
