What about "Passing Chess"? from the french word and chessmove - en passant. Passing time, is also something you can do when you just want to look at the board and not necessarily make a move... Passing is also used in fotball as passing the ball..

It is correspondence chess whether through snail mail, email, or making a series of moves over many days/weeks/months on a website that has a virtual chessboard.
Oh, so glad you posted that, I mean, that has to qualify as one of the most important posts I have seen in a long time!
"Studio Chess" becouse alternative to "Live Chess" and involving most care and refinement
I think that "online" chess should not be replaced.
iChess is also an option.
Correspondence makes sense! We should use that
How about "Java Chess".
Becasue you take your time to drink coffee, you also take your time to play online chess.
Here is Slovenia, most of the coffee bars have chess sets, and people sit around playing whilst drinking coffee.
Yes, coz clearly Live chess couldn't possibly be described as online chess.
And WTF does Pete have to do with this?!
This is a no-brainer. We should continue to call it online chess for Pete's sake!
correspondence chess has 51%
Interesting, but why not just 'BorderChess'. However, I doubt that the application of your catchword would serve as a legible 'tool' in conveying its message to most of us here. On the other hand, 'Over The Border' Chess (as likened to 'OTB' ['Over The Board'-type chess]) would only confuse matters 'there'; perhaps just the simple use of the term 'international' somewhere within would be a better fit, but again, doesn't justify the application towards online play.
And that's the way 'I' see it! ...
Chessing (There is, after all, sexing)
Borderless chess is my favorite
When I think about it it is a chess that people from diferent countries, continents, can play and the rules could be changed to accomodate all kinds of time-control. But it is mainly Chess withlout borders. Not hampered by the loooks or dress or any other factor.
Correspondence Chess - official name.
Online chess is just fine
correspondence chess obviously
It should be known as Malcolm Chess
Online Correspondence would be abbreviated OC which could easily be taken to mean Online Chess (back where we started) and without the word Chess included Online Correspondence could also be taken to mean online letter writing. The CC (Correspondence Chess) abbreviation has a distinct look and sound and would no doubt become the standard accepted usage as it already has been for many years now. The term CC to denote Correspondence Chess was already in use for many years before the Internet existed. I think our form of chess deserves a distinct and unique name with an abbreviated form which is also distinct, unique, meaningful and easily recognizable. For some reason OCC doesn't sound as good to me as ECC (Electronic Correspondence Chess). So that's my preference.
