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".

Someone has got to post a Mamba here. Would classify as simple curve lines I suppose.  Many nice color scheme examples and all white is really nice backlit.  Cool

While good flying qualities are more important than aesthetics, its nice to have both!

I think Mark's way of displaying the 'old skool stuff' works best for me.  Reason?  In sunlight they just gleam Wink

I think out of my own kites, I like this color pattern best, When back lit it changes shades of Green to yellow-green

The Exile Slice layout (above in KingJ's post) is one of my all time favorite designs, I struggled with the Mira design colorizer for days and never got something I liked the next morning, thankfully Rhonda decided to surprise me for my b-day and chose the colors. Ken came out with the Slice a week or so after getting mine, that design I've made many I liked, we just ordered a month too early  Cry and since I didn't feel the light Exile added enough range to the Nitro and lost so much I liked about the kite I didn't need another.

Even though it's very old school now I've always been partial to this color scheme on my (gasp) 20 year old Hawaiian Team kite:



The only depressing thing about it is that the colors have faded thru much use but when new it was so rich and bright colored it was really eye popping.

For newer (it's not super new but...) kites I'm partial to the almost "easter" theme (pastel colors) of this T'nT:
