RfC on election/referendum naming format
An RfC on moving the year from the end to the start of article titles (e.g. South African general election, 2019 to 2019 South African general election) has been reopened for further comment, including on whether a bot could be used move the articles if it closed in favour of the change: Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (government and legislation)#Proposed change to election/referendum naming format.

First mention of Tigray in ancient sources:- from the article "Tigray Province"
There seems to be high inaccuracy on the section "First mention of Tigray in ancient sources" on the Wikipidia article "Tigray Province" https:/wiki/Tigray_Province#First_mention_of_Tigray_in_ancient_sources
Please double check the sources and correct it. Furthermore, the rest of the article needs citation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Truth gate keeper (talk • contribs) 02:06, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
NPOV and Abiy Ahmed
There seems to be some recent edits that violate Wp:NPOV on the article about Ethiopia's current prime minister Abiy Ahmed, where certain part of his career are emphasized and other aspects have been removed. Inter&anthro (talk) 22:13, 16 March 2019 (UTC)
A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

Tigurats / Tigretes spinoff article
There was a spinoff article recently created concerning the Tigurats people but the title is undecided. Also if this is a content fork or original research and needs to be merged or combined to Tigray Region, please voice your opinions there as well at Talk:Tigurats.

Ethiopian Orthodox Coptic Church of North and South America
(Cross-posted to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Oriental Orthodoxy)
I have proposed the deletion of Ethiopian Orthodox Coptic Church of North and South America. The article is not about (nor should it be confused with) the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church in North and South America. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 19:03, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Check a video?
Hi, I have found a CC-licensed video that we could use to take a screenshot to illustrate the Eskinder Nega page. However I’m unable to read the logo that appears in the lower left of the screen. I just want to make sure that it’s from EthioInfo rather than from a different news company that may not have actually CC-licensed their footage (a common copyright issue). Is there someone with better language skills who has a moment to look at it and tell me what the logo says? Thank you so much. Innisfree987 (talk) 15:40, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
Help needed for Amharic/Tigrinya welcome-template translation
Hello. The Wikipedia:Welcoming committee uses templates to welcome new users to English Wikipedia. Occasionally, we welcome users in their own language, whose English doesn't appear strong enough to edit in English; see WP:WELCOME-FOREIGN. I'd like to add templates for Amharic and Tigrinya (and Somali); if you can write these languages (no automatic translation, please) then please help out by translating this passage into these languages:
