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".

Hiya, kiters. In the last couple years since Steve Ferrel closed the doors on Kite Studio, it's been harder and harder to find all the things needed for making great kites. And if you can find what you need, it's never all in one place. I'm hoping to remedy that problem by opening a new shop, Fly Market Kitemaking Supply. Click on our logo over there on the right-hand side, and poke around the website a bit. Let me know what you think, good or bad. If there's something you want that's not in the shop, tell me. Constructive feedback is always welcome. Thanks for your patience while I'm sorting out those "new business glitches" and making sure everything works right.

And until Boxing Day, take advantage of free UPS Ground shipping on orders in the continental USA.

Didn't make it for the free shipping, but Just wanted to mention on the forum that our recent fabric order seemed to be fairly priced and the speedy service was exceptional.
Thanks guys!  Cool
Will have a much better order soon.

In the market to get some supplies. Glad you're a sponsor. I guess just curious about your history and link to flying that you wanted to open your site.

Happy to discuss that with you, but I'd prefer to not do it in this venue. Send me an e-mail or give me a call, and I'll tell you whatever you want to know. Thanks.

I placed an order with Phil recently and am very pleased with the service I received. Communication was great, and he went out of his way to make paypal available as a payment option.

Never said I didn't want to share it, Thief. I just said I preferred to not do it in this venue. Given the beating some kiters have felt the need to give me on social media, I'd rather have conversations with people, instead of blindly throwing information into cyberspace.

Thanks John.

Google all you want. It still won't tell you anything about the real story behind Fly Market. Which, as I've said, I'm happy to share one-on-one with anyone who wants to take the time to contact me personally. But after seeing my girlfriend brought to tears by things that people said about me on social media last year -- and some of those people are on this forum, and not one of them had the decency to discuss their issues with me personally before they started spewing their vitriol online -- I've chosen to limit what I share in wide-open arenas like this one.
