This gave me access to my own forum and its ACP for a while.

Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of our Weekly Member Interview Series! This week, we have decided to interview sarhad12. This member has been a member of Forum Promotion since 19 Jan 2013. Now on to the interview! Tell us a little about yourself. Well I've been nicknamed "Scarface" by my mates due to me being a fan of Al Pacino and I also have a "Scar" on my forehead which kind of lives up to the name. As far as my age is concern I stopped counting as soon as I hit my 20's. I have been living...
