So I presume that 'that' ('') incarnation must be 'you' yourself, then - hopelessly trying to dislodge that [boot-clad] foot of mine - huh? ... as 'you[!]' don't [or can't] seem to find anything else intelligent enough to reply 'here', now do ya? ...
And 'that' ('') is [only] about all you can say - huh? ...
"Damn[!]-well bloody sure-rights! ... "
Stupid name. All chess is turn based. Never seen a real time chess game.
I like Turn-Based Chess.
Or at least that's what I call it.
WoW! --- We - have - been - served...
Okay, then - just to comply with everyone else's 'best wishes' in regards to renaming online chess - since most of you only seem to be about as half-witted as a donkey's arse pointing to the south pole - I guess my final say of 'suggestion', in order to be 'like-minded' like yourselves here, towards satisfying the renaming of 'Online Chess' could be: 'Slower-Than-Molasses-In-January-Chess'! ... as perhaps 'that[!]' would be more apt than anything else in proving beyond a doubt, how the 'times' - and minds[!] - surely have changed, not only in the wisdom of chess thinking, but purportedly so, in the 'mere' beliefs of [those] ideas of what we only take for granted - so 'there'! ...
And that's the way 'I' see it! ...
Yup, same name but I use OLC :-P
Online Correspondence Chess = OCC
I play OCC @ c.c
My second suggestion is - 'Horizon Chess', for the poetically minded like many of us.
CorrChessyeah..that sounds good..
Perhaps maybe as in 'CorpsChess'[?] ...
I believe a good short/nickname for Correspondence chess" could be:CorrchessMost guys would understand this name without closer explainations needed.
To all those here who've 'voted' for either 'Turn-based-' or [the sucky re-naming of] 'Correspondence Chess' - both of which are not only inept or inappropriate 'suggestions', but are names that are already currently being used [towards other games/gaming sites] elsewhere - I'd only 'suggest' you all get your priorities straight, 'cause what we have in use here [currently named] as 'Online Chess' is in fact but [only] a 'long increment'-type of time control to regulate the game.
So what I'd suggest then towards renaming 'Online Chess' here (if it even needs to be) is perhaps either 'Artificial-Time Chess' or maybe even 'Campaign-Time Chess'; at least that way, someone wishing to embark on a chess game here might get the idea that they are in it for a 'long haul' ...
Doesn't matter wtf chess.com call it. I still call it online correspondence (OLC), coz that's what it is.
It shouldn't be turn based chess for the same reason that it shouldn't be online chess, it's a pleonasm. Chess is per definition turn based
