    Do your own homework. No less than seventeen have been named in this thread so far.

    So far all I got is that no one can deal with change. I await your failure.

    I'm coming to the conclusion that he's just trolling.  Surely he can't be that obtuse without it being intentional.

    How about naming it "Turtle Chess , sloth chess , gradual chess,leisurely chess, chess bit by bit," I hope Erik you will like at least one. I got some more names. " custom chess, erik chess or Bloc chess ( based leisurely online correspondence) . well Erik "Daily chess " is a nice word.

    "Slow chess" clearly expresses the main distinction with blitz chess and also it sounds ok.

    Captures it nicely, but I had to look it up, so it's problematic in that respect.

    How about CCC, Computer Corespondence Chess?

    After fifty pages, I suggest Staff summarize the list to ten choices and call the question for a vote.  Maybe eleven choices, including, "Who cares."

  • #972

    or 12 choices.. "We will choose what 'we' like the best, regardless of what the majority likes".

  • #973

    I don't think there is a good solution to the cheating problem.

  • #974

    I don't think you're in the right thread.

  • #975

    Good thinking...

  • #976

    Online Correspondence Chess.

    Terrible?  Too long?

    Then how about; " OC Chess " ?

    I would amend your comment to the following: "or 12 choices.. 'We will choose what 'we' like the best, regardless of what Erik likes." After all, this site is in business for the profit of Erik but for the enjoyment of its members.

    Communication over a distance
    Non-concurrent gameplay
    It's chess

    You wouldn't use Correspondence Chess for someone nearby or in the same house even, but you certainly can do it here.

    Non-concurrent? If you stay on the same page, how different is it from regular chess?

    It's chess? So you couldn't think of a third one... :/

    I'm trolling? Maybe you should read the first post. ...and subsequent ones by the guy who runs the site. I suppose he's trolling too?

    Yes, TheGrobe, chessplayer11 does seem to be just trolling, trying to show us how clever he can be. Too bad for him that cleverness is no substitute for sound, sensible reasoning. His approach to the naming issue is merely that of the sophist and yields results as specious as theirs were.
