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".

The Ground Zero Slash was my first sport kite - I still love the buzz it makes when it tears across the sky.

A scalded[1]/singed[2] cat moves faster than quicksilver on black ice... with a tailwind.

A scolded cat generally moves very slowly, because he/she is quite frankly waiting for his/her human companion to catch up and get with the program ("In a former life, I was worshipped as a god.... and you would have been sacrificed to me for your impudence.")

[1] Bobbing for cheese tortellini because you were too slow to replace the cover when testing for doneness.
[2] Repeated forays have not diminished the lure of the remanants of cheese on a cooling cooking sheet that the pizza has been removed from.

YMMV.... especially if your felines are actually indigenous to the planet.  Undecided
