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".

What does it mean when you are looking for a kite and you come across a few that you had forgotten that that had, let alone made? These are two of the first "real" kites that I made. I know I flew the orange and yellow one all of the time. I can't remember anything about the green and white one.

These really bring back memories. I was looking for a kite that I wanted to repair. Perhaps I should take this weekend and do some more digging and fix up several older kites that I don't fly.

 Cheesy I'm not so good at the making kites part, but it feels like I'm often finding kites I forgot I had.  It just so happens that this morning I found a full vent 1.5 sail I forgot I had, right in my second rev bag!

P.S. - nice kites.  I like the indoor/SUL

I try to keep on top of my collection and pull out a kite I have not flown every month or so....and sometimes I miss a bag....
I know that there are a few that I have not seen in my hands but are still in my stable..hopefully I have taken pictures of them (pretty certain I have as I got to be a stickler about that!)
