There is a known bug with the Thanet Directory where the category links are not working. This is a fault with the URL parser / builder which doesn't cope well with custom language keys. I did not write it and I am working on a replacement. Everything else should be fully operational.
Thanet Star - actively improving Thanet one idea at a time
About Thanet Star
Thanet Star is an independent news and views column written by it's head (in fact soul) editor, Matt. Technically you might want to call this site a blog (and many people will) but what matters most is not what you want to call it but how well I (as Editor) manage to say something that is both timely and relevant.
A fresh Voice
The aim of Thanet Star is to bring a fresh voice to Thanet and to explore local issues. While I'm doing that I hope to dispel a few myths that stop businesses (that includes self employed people) from making the most from the Internet. There are a lot of cowboy "web masters" out there and hopefully while we look at Thanet I can provide some resources for the business users in the audience.
Thanet Star is for you
That is not to say that Business is the only topic I cover. Indeed if it happens in Thanet then I might well want to cover it - if it will be of interest to other people.
At the end of the day this site is about you. If I can bring you a look at a side of Thanet you have not seen before then I feel I have done my job well.
As such we offer all readers the chance to comment on every item we publish with very few exceptions. your opinion is as much a part of the story as the part that I contribute and I hold that there is no such thing as a poor comment.
