How should we rename "Online Chess"? (This mean non-live chess with multi-day time controls.)

    Among the novelties, I like Daily Chess.   'Correspondence chess' is the technical name of this game anyway altrough it sounds well dated.

    Now it is misspelled, but maybe even better instead of correspondence chess to response chess...

    This is a variation of the English Defense (not the English Opening but used against it) that I have developed. Tell me what you think.

     

    1.c4 e6 2.d4 b6 3.Nc3 Bb7 4.e4 Bb4
    Eventually, you would take Nc3 with the Bishop launch an attack on d4 and e4.

    The reason I play is to be able to analyze more, work through some variations. We have as a provided tool the Analysis board. So how about:

    By the way, online chess was a way too bad naming. Actually, it is more like offline chess :)

    Well, "correspondence chess" sounds fancy but neither it nor most of other options do not really capture the basic difference of online chess from live ones. The main difference is the daily-ness, the extremely long "turn"s... So, I would prefer daily chess. Well, who says correctness is more important than fanciness? But still, I think "correspondence chess" sounds too ... formal(?) I don't know, maybe it is just too long...

    @HeartofStone.. exactly the same is my view. "Correspondence Chess" is a long-forgotten term in chess, bringing it back is a good idea. also i think the original idea of Correspondence Chess (and a great one considering those good ol' days) is the idea behind "online chess" in chess.com

    It's great that you guys consider changing this. Online chess seemed wrong from the beginning. The natural expectation when you hear "online chess" is to play interactively.

    I'm also happy that "Correspondence chess" is the choice of most users. Why bother inventing a new term? Correspondence chess already has a well-defined meaning in the general chess community, outside chess.com.

    At first I misunderstood  online chess  for Live chess . so  online chess gives 

    wrong impression. Name may be changed to online classic chess or 

    E-classic chess.

    Hi.  I would like to offer a different posibility for the name if I may;

    Offline Chess

    Thanks.

    Online chess is just the way it should be :) Correspondence sounds lame.

    I think correspondence chess is the classic and correct way of designating it. It doesn't have to be "daily," it's not played by "e-mail," and all others are applicable to live chess.

    Oooh how about post chess? In reference to postal, and posting a move like you would post in a forum.
