Yeah, I don't care for "anytime" either.
What about contemplative chess?
In the online world, it is classic. Don't we specify OTB for "normal" chess? The same goes for "correspondence", imho. I hardly ever use post mail or write checks (and I am not a trend-setter!). Regular mail is online now.
personally, the only two i could personally agree to would be:
Does this mean that even if most people are in favour of Correspondence Chess, you will veto it? If so, why was it listed as a choice? I think we should allow the chess.com community to decide here, and I agree that Correspondence Chess has the most professional sound by far.
daily chess and anytime chess was part of the learning process
daily chess sounds like you have to finish it in a day. It also excludes 3-day limits, etc.
correspondence is old.
Think more choices should be added to vote panel.
Hang Ten Chess, lol
How about 'Engine chess' to reflect the number of people using one
I think a lot people think it's not against the rules to use an engine. because engine use is actually permitted many times in correspondence chess.
Not here it's not.
How about just eSpondence Chess?
How about "comfy chess"?
Hmm, eComfy Chess, maybe.
I'm leaning more and more toward the clear survey winner, Correspondence Chess and done with it. If you're really taking that off the table and limiting it to the above choices, then Anytime Chess is the clear, clear winner for me. It's not great, but it's not half bad. I could get used to that.
Hmmm...."ecomfy chess" sounds interesting...
anytime or daily chess would probably be widely derided by the chess community. don't go in that direction. not wise. those names would be good names for correspondence chess on chesskid.com. my opinion.
also all the people mocking online chess for being "slow", there's actually a hell of a lot more to it than meets the eye if you are playing someone who is devoting all their attention and focus to it and taking the time to analyze all possible variations. little tricks and traps that we're all obsessed with won't usually work here. usually in order to win you have to take the time to devise an actual plan. unless the person blunders, stops playing etc.
I sometimes think it would interesting to have online chess without the analysis board or opening explorer. of course there's no way you could know or prevent someone from just using something similiar anyway. unless I don't know you violated their right to privacy and had cameras trained on them 24/7
yes and this should be made more explicit. people might not be intending to cheat, just thinking it's fine.
'' comfy chess '' should be added :)
Cheating innocently ? Totally by accident. Oh didn't realise you weren't allowed to ! ?? hehe..
