Syr Duncan just posted an update:

After being told two weeks ago that we had to start inspecting helms off of
the head the SEM has decided that we need to wait until he has a better
idea of what we are looking for and how.  To that end he is suspending his
earlier edict to inspect helms in any manner differently than what we are
already doing.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I am at work and have no way
to access Facebook, can someone please forward this the Kingdom Facebook
page and the calon list?
