en:Do not buy Russian goods!Edit

Hello! Could you translate an article about boycott of Russian goods in Ukraine for the Amharic Wikipedia? Thanks for the help. --Trydence (talk) 16:17, 16 ኦክቶበር 2014 (UTC)

What is the Amharic text in this picture?Edit

What is the Amharic text in this picture? - 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)
Thank you! I added it to en:Lycée Guebre-Mariam and fr:Lycée franco-éthiopien Guébré-Mariam. Are you interested in starting an Amharic article on this school? WhisperToMe (talk) 04:52, 7 ጁን 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


Are you interested in making an Amharic version of this template? en:Template:International schools in Ethiopia WhisperToMe (talk) 15:11, 26 ኖቬምበር 2015 (UTC)

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" - 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 so I think it would be a great idea to have an Amharic version of this article. WhisperToMe (talk) 22:54, 5 ዲሴምበር 2015 (UTC)

I've translated the Italian school. I've also created a stub for the school system at ሞንትጎመሪ ካውንቲ የመንግሥት ትምህርት ቤቶች. Elfalem (talk)
Thank you so much! :) WhisperToMe (talk) 21:46, 6 ዲሴምበር 2015 (UTC)

Ethiopian nameEdit

What is the Ethiopian name of the Holy Trinity and Saint Mary Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church? (name in File:EthiopianChurchSign0Houston.JPG)

Also, are you interested in adding Ethiopian descriptions to some files related to that church? Thanks, WhisperToMe (talk) 04:31, 27 ማርች 2016 (UTC)

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)

Thank you very much :) WhisperToMe (talk) 00:31, 3 ኤይፕርል 2016 (UTC)

Article idea: District of Columbia Public Library and/or Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial LibraryEdit

Hi, Elfalem!

I found that the en:District of Columbia Public Library has a website in Amharic:

Are you interested in starting an Amharic article about the DC Public Library system and/or the en:Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library (the central library)? Also, what is the Amharic name for the "Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library", as I would like to put the name in Commons:Category:Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library?

Thank you! WhisperToMe (talk) 09:20, 14 ኖቬምበር 2016 (UTC)

Hi WhisperToMe, I will try to start an article on the DC library system. As for the library, it would be የማርቲን ሉተር ኪንግ ጁኒየር መታሰቢያ ቤተ መጻሕፍት. Elfalem (talk) 03:56, 22 ኖቬምበር 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your help! I went and added the name to the Commons page WhisperToMe (talk) 13:40, 28 ፌብሩዌሪ 2017 (UTC)

Ambo UniversityEdit

Do you know if there is an Amharic article for en:Ambo University in Oromia? WhisperToMe (talk) 13:41, 28 ፌብሩዌሪ 2017 (UTC)

I don't think so. There is አምቦ ዩኒቨርሲቲ ኮሌጅ (Ambo University College) but it seems to be referring to another school that was established recently. Elfalem (talk) 20:05, 28 ሜይ 2017 (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,

Thank you. --AddisuMekonene (talk) 14:13, 26 ማርች 2018 (UTC)

Amharic questionEdit

Hi again! What is the Amharic text in this picture? - I would like to add an Amharic description to File:Ethiopian Community Services and Development Council.jpg which displays the same community center.

የ2018 እ.ኤ.አ. ፊፋ የዓለም ዋንጫEdit

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)
