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".

On occasion I go to a member's profile page to see where they live.  I am getting older and this also helps remind me of who is who.  Unless you have a specific reason not to, I would like to encourage members to update their profile page.  I think the old forum had a place to put your name, but best I can tell the new forum does not.  Sorta liked that.

(Last time) There was a standardization effort to make it:  Country State/Province City/Town

Mine should read: USA TX Houston

I agree Eric! It's also useful when referring newbies to more experienced kite flyers in an area. If you don't list your home city/town it's difficult for any of us to refer people to others that can help, hands on instruction, etc....  It's also useful for when we travel, and you want to hook up with other kiters in areas we may be visiting.

I'm in agreement, I believe location is helpful in many aspects, unless you are hiding from someone.

I'm with you all on this one, I even updated mine because there has been questions on my abbreviation of G.V. now it should be spelled out as to complete spelling.
Some forums even have a Members map, which is kinda neat also.

Just checked my profile doesn't say much (I think I had more profile information on the old forum) I will need to fill in a few blanks now.
My user name rickks is based on my name & state Rick Kansas.
BTW Eric, I think I got my HQ Emotion from you.  Smiley
