i actually like that... (not making a decision, just noting a good name i hadn't thought of)
like that ! '' engine-free,regularly-monitored,squeeky-clean,new&improved,fair,correspondence/cheat-free/postal/chess.. '' :)
You are on to something. Let me know. lol
Simplifies to: Efrmscnifccfpc Chess
Still hard to pronounce though... :)
Controlled Response Chess?
Anytime Chess.....hmmmm. Simple. Erik you may be on to something!!
In the summer turn on your AC.
Quite like '' Anytime Chess '' also. That is simple & terse. Definitely one of the better suggestions. Also is more modern than '' correspondence-chess '' so appropriate given the rising-popularity of chess on i-phones etc..
now I have to go play my AC DC!
at any time; regardless of hour, date, etc.; whenever.
anytime chess sounds good. Erik can you make another servey about the most popular names and new suggested names?
Anytime chess could mean anything. Live chess is anytime chess; you can play it whenever you want
AC Anytime Chess or.....
Alternating Current (electricity; physics)
Authentication Code (telecommunications)
Anno Christi (Latin: In the Year of Christ; epigraphy)
Added Copy (libraries)
Ante Christum (Latin: Before Christ)
Atlas Centaur (US intermediate class expendable launch vehicle)
Assistant Camera (film production)
Altocumulus (cloud formation)
Doesanybodycare (some members of chess.com )
Not agressive enough, lol
I think it should be called Move & Wait Chess.
Because in other forms there's no moving or waiting?
There is no better choice than "Online Chess."
That strikes me as the worst choice.
Nothing wrong with anytime-chess. Means the game is there to play or leave whenever you want (within game-settings of course 3-day, 5-day, 7-day...)
Turning this feeder off, tracking off.
I am still hungry.
Correspondence chess has a long and dignified history. Some folks don't like tradition, so they invent something new that doesn't work.
There's a saying in my culture (rural, western, Euro-American): if it ain't broke, don't fix it." That's how it was with correspondence chess, or to be more precise server based correspondence chess, before this site invented a new name, online chess.
When I tell folks about one of my online games on this site I usually need to explain that it's a form of correspondence chess that has an unusual name on this site. Then, they usually get it.
A good name doesn't need to be explained to a chess player who is already familiar with different sorts of chess. There is exactly one name for what I play here that I do not need to explain to these many chess playing friends.
