It is what it is. Don't call it something cute.
It is a rook! Not a castle!
It is a knight! Not a horsey!
It is Correspondence Chess!
Except that, unlike correspondence chess , replies can be virtually instantaneous 24/7
Compudence chess. Half computer half correspondence. Sounds better than Corruponter.
thriller from Manila chess

HM.. I think I'll add another 2cents worth, here is my 2nd suggestion:
!! ONLINE CHESS !!
ding aling a ling!!
how about team chess since most of it is played by clubs or teams and usually you can refer your move to a team member for advice.
Thank you! 2114 votes cast
um.. you cannot refer your move for advice.. not in rated games anyway.. no assistance is permitted.
It is individual chess not team chess... not sure why you got the idea that it was?
correspondence chess....that's what it is called officially.....maybe we could use cChess...
Hm.3rd thought...CCR - correspondence chess relay or riders :)
People only do this because they're forced to by the site's restrictive policy of not providing a separate section where people can play "advice chess" (to be known hereafter as "Cerberus Chess").
that's what vote chess is for... to discuss moves with other members/players.. so that opportunity does exist here.
Still, it should be called Cerberus Chess.
And while we're on the greek mythological kick for deriving names (inspired by Centaur Chess), what about Aeon Chess for Correspondence? It touches on both the element of eternity and on thought/intent?
Erik wants something the masses will relate to..
Well then he already has it.
Aeon Chess is incredibly apt, though, and there is a precedent for deriving the name of a variant from Greek mythology. As far as I'm concerned, though, it's all Sisyphus Chess.
