Wikimedia as a Source for Images
Please take a moment and review the following statement on Wikimedia from the Society Publications Manager.
As Wikimedia does not provide 'any warranty regarding the copyright status or correctness of licensing terms', images from that site cannot be used directly on SCA websites and in SCA publications. Images from stock photography or clip art services can continue to be used as long as all the terms of usage listed are met and the source is credited.

Clarification from the Society Webminister on Wikimedia
I want to take a moment -- this does not mean you cannot use Wikimedia as a resource, you have to use it differently than you may have in the past. You cannot simply take 'their word for it' about the copyright status or correctness of licensing terms. If there is content you would like to use and can acquire permission(s) for the content, no worries.
i.e -- Don't pull an image directly from Wikimedia and slap it on the site.
Here is Wikimedia's statement plus the link, if you would like to review it:
Wikimedia's statement (from http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Reusing_content_outside_Wikimedia):
'While the copyright and licensing information supplied for each image is believed to be accurate, the Wikimedia Foundation does not provide any warranty regarding the copyright status or correctness of licensing terms. If you decide to reuse files from Commons, you should make your own determination of the copyright status of each image just as you would when obtaining images from other sources.'

11/05/2014 - Warrants have not been issued for a least a year. As part of the website hosting migration process, all information about webministers is being updated. When the current list of webministers is up-to-date, we will begin issuing warrants again. It is important that quarterly reports are submitted with complete information. The list of webministers and their respective information is pulled from those reports.
The following is the reporting schedule for Midrealm webministers.
