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".

I have quite a few, this is on the Thinkpad currently.

Pirated from John Chilese's Webshots taken during KiteParty 7.

I call it Pandemonium.

I fully appreciate the ability of trees to attract kites. They have special powers that way.

If you click on the magnifying glass under the photo from the hyperlink, the original 2400x1800 pic is available.

If you want a better version, I can send you one which is less compressed in quality than the Webshots pic.

I like that shot too.  Smiley

I liked this one of Mark Reed with the E3 prototype. That bird in the background is probably the one who emptied his large intestines on me in the parking lot later that evening.

I used this one for a few weeks...



The water makes a nice dark area to make icons easier to see.

Lam makes a mean kite, and this is my meanest (shot last summer in NL).  This is my current desktop photo, as a reminder of what's to come:

I really hit my groove with the Cosmic this winter/spring, so I also really like this one from the winter:

This is one of my all time faves, though I have a rotating group of KP7 photos tormenting me currently.
