"Slow chess" clearly expresses the main distinction with blitz chess and also it sounds ok.
DID you see post 920..."Chess Restante''?
chess for dunderheads
Captures it nicely, but I had to look it up, so it's problematic in that respect.
Has intruiging elements then , and broadens the mind.Could be a rewarding gambit... bird in hand saves lot of b(l)eating about in bush !
How about CCC, Computer Corespondence Chess?
After fifty pages, I suggest Staff summarize the list to ten choices and call the question for a vote. Maybe eleven choices, including, "Who cares."
or 12 choices.. "We will choose what 'we' like the best, regardless of what the majority likes".
I don't think there is a good solution to the cheating problem.
I don't think you're in the right thread.
Online Correspondence Chess.Terrible? Too long?Then how about; " OC Chess " ?
I would amend your comment to the following: "or 12 choices.. 'We will choose what 'we' like the best, regardless of what Erik likes." After all, this site is in business for the profit of Erik but for the enjoyment of its members.
I wonder if any one is able to state at least three things that Traditional Correspondence Chess actually have in common with Online Chess here.
The only similarity I can find is the amount of time it takes.
So far all I got is that no one can deal with change. I await your failure.
You wouldn't use Correspondence Chess for someone nearby or in the same house even, but you certainly can do it here.
Non-concurrent? If you stay on the same page, how different is it from regular chess?
It's chess? So you couldn't think of a third one... :/
I'm coming to the conclusion that he's just trolling. Surely he can't be that obtuse without it being intentional.
I'm trolling? Maybe you should read the first post. ...and subsequent ones by the guy who runs the site. I suppose he's trolling too?
Yes, TheGrobe, chessplayer11 does seem to be just trolling, trying to show us how clever he can be. Too bad for him that cleverness is no substitute for sound, sensible reasoning. His approach to the naming issue is merely that of the sophist and yields results as specious as theirs were.
At least I've given reasons for my opinion. All you can do is cry like a child. Maybe if you hold your breath long enough you'll get your way.
I mean, you thought the survey was an election, so why not?
Well my friend, let's see the final outcome first, to see whose wording was more accurate. :)
Did anyone else not know that the site is actually owned and run by Erik and his partner Jay?
When I say his partner, I don't mean that sort of partner lol. I mean his business partner.
I only just realised that from stumbling across this forum.
