I like the updated logo style and size. It’s not new or anything just wanted to mention.

Now when are you going to update the format of the website? Is it just me or does it not feel 1997ish?

I know you like to feel like king and regulate every comment before its posted but most “communities” use forum type message boards that are moderated and require registration to comment such as vbulletin for example.

Come join us in the year 2002 it’s nice

Schmee June 28, 2012 at 9:22 PM

Yes I said 2002 lol

ACC June 28, 2012 at 9:36 PM

LOL Mayor. Do you know that for the last few years, that you’ve been posting this Claycord Council for some reason I thought it said Clayton Council and stupidly assumed it was the meeting minutes for the Clayton City Council. I never clicked into it until tonight and realized it’s OUR Council. What a maroon I am! Anyway, I still read every day, I just can’t post very often … work, work, work gets in the way of a good time.
Hope you’re well! June 28, 2012 at 9:47 PM

Hey ACC, better late than never, right? LOL

Thanks for saying “Hi”, it’s ALWAYS nice to hear from you. 🙂

Hope you’ve been well, too.


SK June 28, 2012 at 9:50 PM

Hi, ACC, glad to see you on here! I miss seeing your comments. Glad to hear you are busy working though.

Dragon June 28, 2012 at 9:55 PM

Mayor – congrats on the Best Blog win! You rock – we all know it, but it’s always good to get the word out to others 🙂 June 28, 2012 at 10:04 PM

Thanks, Dragon 🙂

anon June 28, 2012 at 11:28 PM

I am a claycord addict. There I admitted it.

SprayTHENaim June 29, 2012 at 3:49 AM

Mayor, ignore Schmee, your format is up to date and better than most forums. This is a blog, not a forum buddy. The format is simple while being filled with important content, best local website!

Bubba 94521 June 29, 2012 at 6:13 AM

Congrats on the W. Too bad in 2012 you have to ask people not to post racist comments. I will never understand those people.

Anonymee June 29, 2012 at 6:29 AM

Thanks for getting that ad fixed so quickly, Mr. Mayor (“comlete” v. “complete”), one of the features I like so much about is that you are so responsive.

Antler June 29, 2012 at 8:25 AM

Thank you for the return email, and I am so glad you will be trying to get the “store” tab back again so that we can order products with “” on them.

And I like the format just as it is (especially since the main fonts have been changed to look like the print on sports uniforms). And most sincere congratulations on the honor from the readers of Diablo Magazine!

And, ACC, hi there! You’re not either “a maroon”! Maybe a nice warm shade of brown? 😉 June 29, 2012 at 9:43 AM

@anon, Thanks for being addicted!

@SprayTHEnaim, Thanks for the kind words!

@Bubba94521, Thanks and I agree.

@Anonymee, Thanks again for pointing that out. I try to be responsive, thanks for noticing. 🙂

@Antler, The store link should be back up today. Thanks again for everything.

Have a nice day everybody!

I will be ducking and running for cover, immediately following this question…

Any progress on an alternative to text messages, for Claypons? June 29, 2012 at 10:56 AM

Hey Paul, Not yet.

We’re still trying to perfect the text message deals, but don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about you 🙂

Thanks for asking, Mayor

V June 29, 2012 at 11:11 AM

I always show up late for the meeting….. darn work schedule… thank goodness this stays up for a little while 🙂

Love claycord Mr. Mayor… get lots of important local info that’s not always covered by the local broadcast media or newspapers (not that I read the paper anyways)

Paul (formerly) in South Concord June 29, 2012 at 11:17 AM

Roger that!

ChampagneKitty June 29, 2012 at 12:09 PM

I fell asleep early last night. a) Work is very stressful right now due to a bullying manager. b) I made my stomach happy and full by eating Indian food at Swagat for dinner. c) I have fibromyalgia so I’m tired a lot anyway.

I woke up during the night to find my computer had timed out and I had to close the sliding glass door I had left open.

How cool is that June 30, 2012 at 3:06 PM

Got to meet Radar in person today. How cool is that. Now I have a face to a name.

Cowellian June 30, 2012 at 4:24 PM

That’s very cool! Radar is a class act, and he’s cuter than a lot of us.

Cowellian June 30, 2012 at 4:27 PM

Hi ACC! Welcome to the council meeting. I spend less time on Claycord now than when I was working. It seems I’m working more now than when I was actually getting a paycheck.
