I saw that several people had posted some cover sheets for classic Diplomacy; so I made my own seven unique covers with pictures and icons on them I cut and pasted from Wikipedia into a Microsoft Word 2007 file (which was subsequently saved as a pdf file anyone could use).

The pictures are that of the heads of state of the seven Diplomacy great powers (plus an eighth page I couldn't resist including). The icons are the "great seals" of each of these countries; both the photos as well as the great seals were all declared to be in the public domain by Wikipedia.

Can I post these up here? What do I have to click on/choose when I post it? (I will go through each of the 16 images again to make 100% certain they're really public domain.)

Post them in your gallery, then on a forum page you can insert them.

Also, try posting them in the file section so we can download them for our own use.

My question was more about the copyright issue. It *says* they're in the public domain but I'm not sure which option to click when you post them. Do I need to credit Wikipedia somehow? (Can't really fit a "credit/copyright" line anywhere....

I don't think you have to credit it, but I'm not a lawyer, so I don't know for sure.

Still, it might be nice to cite your sources regardless. If you want to, you can see how Wikipedia cited it and follow suit.
