argh. no closer than when we started... there is no right name :(
Yes there is a right name, and the mystery is why it is not called by it on this server.
My guess is that you have been defending the "online chess" naming decision for so many years, that you have made up a lot of excuses for it.
how about : "on going games?" they keep going on and on and on! lol

my PACED CHESS never made the cut.... damn.
I think cChess should be up there though.. it looks good, sounds good and represents what it really is, and kinda marries in with chess.com.. both being short and sweet.. and just have under it in light grey small lettering (correspondence chess).. to explain what it is, but very subtly.
No Right Name Chess, wonderful idea!
looool - good one Anna.
What about " Just-when-your-opponent-has-got-one-minute-left-he-makes-a-great-move-and-you-throw-a-tantrum chess?
What about "Your Pace Chess"? Or "Chess at your Leisure"? Or something similar?
The draw for me is that I can pop in, spend a few minutes on a game, and go back to my busy schedule. It's not that the games are slower, necessarily, it's that the continuous commitment in any given stint is much, much shorter.
It captures the idea suggested by TheGrobe that correspondence chess is played discontinuously.
Not bad. In a previous discussion I'd also thrown out "Interruptible". Even "Discontinuous" would work. I think the best answer is probably along these lines somewhere.
Fitful? Sporadic? I think maybe I still like intermittent best.
And the prior comment by grobe takes us back to Anytime Chess

The bad thing about chess is its fixed starting position.
