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".

Amazing! Me, I've often gone in exactly the opposite direction -- toward "minimalist" costumes, that let me just barely cover the ground (rules), without sweating all night in a styrofoam carrot costume.

E.g., one year I dressed up as a snapping turtle. When somebody either (a) asked me what my costume was, or (b) accused me of coming to a Halloween costume party without a costume! (and they DID!), I'd point to the 3 key components of my costume:
1) I was wearing a turtleneck,
2) I had safety-pinned a tiny (Puka) shell on my back, and
3) I'd snap my fingers.

Most people got it, or at least had to acknowledge that I'd put enough thought into it that I shouldn't get thrown out of the party! (Mind you, the guys in the head-to-toe carrot suits weren't always amused. . .)

My more memorable outfits for Halloween:

The red telletubby
Marvin the Martian
Mr. Potato Head (with moveable parts)
A spider (with silly string web)
Killer bee
Mighty Mouse
Wonder Woman (thanks Dan, I forgot her)

All costumes made by the lovely Bambi.

Ah, that would be THE Dan. And if there's room for multiple personalities, Danielle the clown could come too.

There have been some great Transformers costumes out there. This is the best one I've ever seen... and it was home made! From WonderCon 2009 in LA.
