Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
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".

So...I understand all about keeping private information private and all...but if you take the time to put in something relevant and true into your profile for your location (and no i am not meaning Earth etc...something RELEVANT) then when you ask for help others will have an idea of where you are to maybe steer you towards a specific person/club/shop/festival etc......

just a tweaky little thing.....

good winds to all!

Yep, Location & Real Name are a couple things that would be nice to have included in the profile. Steve was looking into the possiblity to mod that area and include them.

Best you can do right now is add them to your signature if you want to, my preference is in the profile though, make people work a little bit to get anything more personal.

Great idea to add LOCATION to profiles,
I'm new to kite flying and knowing where people live when they are talking/giving advice about flying and wind conditions would be really helpful.

Now if we can get everyone to enter their correct location in their profile this may have some value.
