What is the Amharic text in this picture?Edit
What is the Amharic text in this picture? http://www.guebre-mariam.org/local/cache-vignettes/L600xH99/siteon0-3e2b0.jpg - May I have it transcribed? Does it mean a French school somewhere? Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 23:48, 17 ጃንዩዌሪ 2015 (UTC)
- The Amharic text is ገብረ ማርያም ትምህርት ቤት which literally is "Gebre Mariam school". If I'm not mistaken, this is the French school in Addis Ababa, colloquially known as ሊሴ (Lycée). Elfalem (talk) 01:16, 25 ጃንዩዌሪ 2015 (UTC)
Non-response from fellow administrator, please remove block on BeetstraEdit
Hi. I have been asking your fellow administrator Codex Sinaiticus about their block of Beetstra and to this point there has been no response. The questions have been asked at User talk:Codex Sinaiticus#Why the block on Beetstra? Please explain. I have asked which breach of local policy has brought the block, or if no local policy, then which breach of the broader wikimedia policies or guidelines have been breached. As there is no evident breach of policy presented, I am now asking for that block to be removed, and asking that you do it seeing that the blocking admin is unresponsive to my request. Thanks.

International schools in EthiopiaEdit
- I've translated most of the template at መለጠፊያ:ኢንተርናሽናል ትምህርት ቤቶች በኢትዮጵያ. I'm not sure about the Italian school. Elfalem (talk) 06:07, 27 ኖቬምበር 2015 (UTC)
- Thank you! I think the Italian name means "Italian State Comprehensive Institute of Addis Ababa" - https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/omnicomprensivo?rdfrom=Omnicomprensivo means "all-inclusive" - So it is an institution of the Italian government and covers all levels of primary and secondary education WhisperToMe (talk) 22:48, 5 ዲሴምበር 2015 (UTC)
If you want to try another one, en:Montgomery County Public Schools is a public school system in the suburbs of Washington, DC. They have a page with Amharic information http://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/am/ so I think it would be a great idea to have an Amharic version of this article.

What is the Ethiopian name of the Holy Trinity and Saint Mary Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church? (name in File:EthiopianChurchSign0Houston.JPG)
The name as shown in the picture is ቅድስት ሥላሴ እና ቅድስት ድንግል ማርያም የኢትዮጵያ አርቶዶክስ ተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲያን. I am interested in contributing descriptions although I can not say when I will get to them as I'm busy with other commitments. Elfalem (talk) 03:49, 28 ማርች 2016 (UTC)

Offer for Collaboration on MediaWikiEdit
Hello there, I have been working on an Enterprise Wiki using MediaWiki. I am just a novice for MediaWiki. There are a lot of contents in the official MediaWiki site which are self-explanatory and very useful.
But, I was always curious if I know someone who has a demonstrated knowledge and skill on MediaWiki and Open Source Collaboration Tools.
I was thrilled to get here, Amharic Wikipedia. I would love to talk with one of the Administrators on private. So, I would be glad if I get the Administrators email address;
- here is my email address,
Hi again! What is the Amharic text in this picture? https://i.ytimg.com/vi/kU1kiWKQQ3E/hqdefault.jpg - I would like to add an Amharic description to File:Ethiopian Community Services and Development Council.jpg which displays the same community center.
Hello, hoping you are fine! At first many thanks for creating all the FIFA World Cups since 1930. Only the current one in Russia is missing. Could you create an article for that competition like all the other? I'd expanded all those articles on the Afrikaans Wikipedia, that's why I'm asking. I'll help with fixing pictures, if necessary (all I can do with am-0). Best regards, -- SpesBona (talk) 20:00, 12 ጁላይ 2018 (UTC)
Your advanced permissions on am.wikipediaEdit
Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, interface administrator, etc.) was adopted by community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing activity on wikis with no inactivity policy.
You meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no logged actions for 2 years) on this wiki. Since this wiki, to the best of our knowledge, does not have its own rights review process, the global one applies.
If you want to keep your advanced permissions, you should inform the community of the wiki about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. A community notice about this process has been also posted on the local Village Pump of this wiki. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to keep your rights, please contact the stewards at the m:Stewards' noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish to continue to maintain the rights.
If you wish to resign your rights, please request removal of your rights on Meta.
If there is no response at all after one month, stewards will proceed to remove your administrator and/or bureaucrat rights. In ambiguous cases, stewards will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review. If you have any questions, please contact the stewards.
