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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Traffic in FA forum is slow  Cry but the GWTW forum is buzzing with alot of activities  Grin . Why ?

We get more than a half hour to eat lunch in europe. The life style is much much slower to allow you the enjoy life.
And that is from a person who has lived on both sides of the big pond.

Activity is not the only indicator of interest.

Bear in mind that a lot of what might fall into the sport kite section on GWTW happens in the FA chat section at the top of the list.

The chat section is mostly on topic, kite related traffic rather than off topic ramblings as sometimes found in GWTW's 'website discussion'. FA has an Off Topic section for that (but even that doesn't suffer from the bitching and moaning that used to plague the old GWTW website discussion...)

No preference implied just pointing out that you might be missing a lot of activity if you only look at the dual line section.

Also as a nation we Brits can sometimes be reserved in discussion and sometimes more is less, rather than feeling we must say something, anything just to contribute. That's not 'superior' as someone said - that's just a prevalent personality trait in Britain.

And if you look at the title of it, there's no wonder why we might perceive the other forum users has having a "haughty" attitude Smiley

I've always found 1 or 2 visits a year to "That Other Place" is enough to glean all the pertinent info, mostly friend talk IMO.

Then also the same person who sent me off the GWTW forum for over a year and half with his personal attacks and holier then thou attitude after my first post here also chased me off FA on my first post there with his attitude. Since he is most active over there I've stayed away for the most part.

The last time I popped in to FA I found so little of value and so much offensive I haven't felt the need to even look again, and that was during the supposedly "Dark" times here at GWTW.

Just for the record ... I have never considered there to be any competition between the two forums and have long been a member (#90 to be exact) and am proud to have attained the rank.  Both Andy and Craig have been long time friends and customers.

Okay, I feel better now.  You may resume your "things are better here" banter.  Wink

Some of us are at least having a go  Tongue

Reviving Virtual Freestyle would undoubtedly increase activity at FA.

Hmmm.... good point. I'll have a word with Davey and see what we can conjure up.  Wink
