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".

Have you seen the newest videos of the wreck?  Lots more damage and stuff since Woodshole videoed the wreck in the 1980's.  Some day it will just be a large rust spot and nothing more.

I know. The most recent stuff I saw had the "rusticles" going out of control and obscuring large parts of the ship...

That and everyone and their brother leaving behind plagues on what is left of the wheel house.  I couldn't believe it when the most recent sub dive showed pictures and video of a dozen or more plaques all lined up in a row across in front of what was left of the engine telegraph tower.  I understand why Woodshole laid their plaque down 1st in an effort to preserve the wreck site, but I think all plaques, and flags left after that are nothing more then others marking up and trashing the wreck site.

Here is a new serious low in thefts... Cheesy  The Titanic Historical Society is now reporting the theft of the original plaque they had placed on the stern to honor the dead.  http://www.titanic1.org/articles/  So now their not only littering the wreck site, their also stealing off of it.
