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

I've registered the forum with Tapatalk, an application for your mobile device.  There is a free (read only) and paid ($2.99) version.
I am testing out the free one and it works okay.  The reviews on this app are spotty at best so I would recommend trying the free version first.
Download the app to your device and then search for GWTW Forum ... right now if you go to 'new" we are the first forum listed.
Give it a try.  I make not a penny on this and have no control on how it works but I would like to hear your experiences if you try it out.

I just downloaded the paid version.  Pretty sure it will be much better than the wap version I had been using.

Thanks for adding this Steve. I have been using it for a few months now and like the program. I'm trying to get more kite sites to add it.

I emailed both GWTW and Kite Builder about adding Tapatalk. KB cannot add it as he's running an old version of his forum and Tapatalk requires a newer version.

I'll try it out, as phpbb3 is supported. Watch this space. Or rather, the other space.

*Edit* Nice spot Steve. The Other Place is now on Tapatalk.

If you want it, you know what to search for.

I'll try it out for a while.  So far it seems okay, could use a more intuitive ui.

There was a free version at one time, read only as I recall, you couldn't post. Not available in the Android Market right now either.
