    Is it safe to assume that part of the problem with "intermittent" and the like is that they can also be construed as implying a lack of stability?

    Awesome terminology - is 'comfy chess' a synonym for 'bathrobe chess' or 'underpants with a bowl of cheerios' chess?   That last one could be shortened to UBC chess

    watch out.  electronics, wine, and water don't mix. 

  • #231

    Just checked stats for TheGrobe and very impressive but if you ever try 10/0 rapid tourney you will find it is not anytime but very time demanding.

  • #232

    How about the chess?

  • #233

    or classic chess?

  • #234

    It's hardly classic.

  • #235

    or cc chess (for classic correspondence chess)

  • #236

    Correspondence just doesn't quite capture it.  It implies mail (or e-mail).

    The first of these is vastly superior to the second, IMHO. OTOH, I see little reason to spurn tradition and the established term, correspondence chess. Still yet, innovative marketing lies at the heart of the success of this site, and so your motivation for spurning tradition seems rational.

    Can I change my vote to daily chess in the spirit of compromise? 

  • #238

    Yeah, I don't care for "anytime" either.

    What about contemplative chess?

  • #239

    In the online world, it is classic. Don't we specify OTB for "normal" chess? The same goes for "correspondence", imho. I hardly ever use post mail or write checks (and I am not a trend-setter!). Regular mail is online now.

    Does this mean that even if most people are in favour of Correspondence Chess, you will veto it? If so, why was it listed as a choice? I think we should allow the chess.com community to decide here, and I agree that Correspondence Chess has the most professional sound by far.
