Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I just finished framing my Sixth sense,and noticed that the nose of the kite rolls in on it's self when I put in the upper spreader I doubled checked all spars measurements before cutting them and all apa connectors for proper placement from the nose of the kite,but as soon as I remove the upper spreader the pucker(rolling in on it's self) vanishes.
Any/All help is greatly appreciated!!
PS: I placed the apa connectors according to the directions: I measured from the nose to the bottom of the apa connectors upper 36.4 cm & lower 100.4 cm

I believe it is correct. The upper spreader runs short in the SS and it is that way on purpose. Seems to be a theme in some of the newer designs out there.
