As you've pointed out Online chess is a generic name. Change it to Online Correspondence Chess (OCC) or simply Correspondence Chess.
i hate the name "turn-based". All chess is turn based, my turn your turn.
I'm thinking 24/7Chess because if you are in enough games you can make a move 24/7. Or Chess24/14. 24 hrs to 14 days.
I know what you can call 960 live... Live960 ...when's that gonna be a topic?
I am marketing a verision of chess called "real time chess", a takeoff of realtime gaming. it works just like regular chess, except you dont have to wait for your opponent to move, you can move as fast as you want. If you can move 5 times to your opponents one, good for you.
I've already sold nearly half a million sets. Regional championshiops are getting started, and we hope to have a bona FIDE world champion in 2015.
Correspondence Chess seems to be the logical choice.
That's not an argument!
Yes it is.
An argument is a series of reasoned statements ..... it's not just an automatic gainsaying of what the other person has just said!
No it's not!
No it's not! I was just getting started. That was never 5 minutes!
Yes, it was.
No, it wasn't.
If it was, why are you still arguing?!
I could be arguing on my own time.
(Sorry for the paraphrasing ... that was from memory...)
Let's all get together and have a mass debate!
Did I win?
You're the champ!
MIL, quarrel is the word that you seek.
Change the "a" to a "u"? lol
I was semi-quoting John Cleese and Micael Palin in their "Argument Clinic" sketch from Monty Python. Occasionally some forum comment exchanges bring that to mind ... not sure why .... ;-)
Hi, just discovered this thread and I know I'm 'a bit' late,,, BUT (I see its still called online chess).. lets call it Contemplative Chess :D
I think the name was picked 23 months ago but we weren't told?
I was confused for months, seeing 'Online Chess' and 'Live Chess' separated.. I knew what 'correspondance chess' was, but that didn't help me, because 'online chess' fails horribly to describe what makes it unique.
Is this a "problem" only because one lone soul (well intentioned, but perhaps misguided) doesn't like the "correspondance chess" moniker?
In other words, would we even be having this discussion if we were calling it 'correspondance chess' here at chess.com?
My opinion: we are making this way more difficult than it should be... do we really need to re-invent this wheel?
