Thumbs Up Yes

It doesnt make a difference whether you have scanned it or the author has scanned it. you are uploading a scanned copy. A problem arises only if you have waived the right to see it.

To view links or images in signatures your post count must be 10 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.

Never give up

Waived letters will be counted more this match and on. Please get them waived to get the full marks. But I guess if it comes down to this, congradulations
