Circular arguments for sure. If job description is:
Then perhaps re-naming them all is the answer ?
Is only a '' label '' to assist navigation of site after all.
So could have: cChess iChess 960Chess etc ?
Without deep & wordy explanation. Expect users will click on them to discover within any further detail...
But I don't think anytime quite captures it. It's all anytime if you have the time. (Or as Steven Wright says, "Anywhere is walking distance if you have the time"). It's the intermittent nature that's the key.
It's more than just assisting navigation, though, it should be as representative of what the variant actually is as possible so that you don't have to suppliment with definitions and descriptions.
It's Sunday at the office.
personally, the only two i could personally agree to would be:
You forgot to mention "comfy chess"
Is it safe to assume that part of the problem with "intermittent" and the like is that they can also be construed as implying a lack of stability?
Way off in the future '' comfy chess '' is all I will ever remember about this forum !
Hilarious! Same here!
Awesome terminology - is 'comfy chess' a synonym for 'bathrobe chess' or 'underpants with a bowl of cheerios' chess? That last one could be shortened to UBC chess
It totally makes me think of taking a hot bath and playing a game of chess for leisure!
watch out. electronics, wine, and water don't mix.
Just checked stats for TheGrobe and very impressive but if you ever try 10/0 rapid tourney you will find it is not anytime but very time demanding.
How about the chess?
or classic chess?
It's hardly classic.
or cc chess (for classic correspondence chess)
Correspondence just doesn't quite capture it. It implies mail (or e-mail).
The first of these is vastly superior to the second, IMHO. OTOH, I see little reason to spurn tradition and the established term, correspondence chess. Still yet, innovative marketing lies at the heart of the success of this site, and so your motivation for spurning tradition seems rational.Can I change my vote to daily chess in the spirit of compromise?
