non-live or multi-day seem to be the phrases used to best describe the type of chess, so I would think one of those would work
iCC might get mixed up with ICC, which stands for Internet Chess Club. I like eCC and oCC, though. It sounds like a good idea, although it would have to be explained what they stand for.
eCC = electronic correspondence chess
iCC = internet correspondence chess
oCC = online correspondence chess
@mydixie. You are correct, I didn't read the entire article. My point remains that the term turn-based is becoming more commonly used among players of many types of strategy games. However, if it isn't workable on this site, I won't lose any sleep.
I voted for correspondence but I think something like multi-day chess would also explain it.
I would call it 'online correspondance chess' or 'internet correspondance chess', if there is a need to differentiate it from postal correspondance chess.
I would've picked "echess" if it had a hypen in it. "E-chess" would be more readable.
It's about time! Every friend I turn onto chess.com has to be explained that ONLINE chess is not LIVE chess... and etc.
Correspondence chess PLEASE.
"standard term to describe the type of play we are talking about."
Perhaps you didn't read your own article, because it describes ALL forms of chess (minus Kung Fu chess if you've ever heard of it). If you're going to call it turn-based chess, you might as well skip the "turn-based" part and just call it "chess".
Thymir, check out this group.
I am sure they discuss the idea you have mentioned.
Renaming Online chess is a good idea. I'm not sure why people aren't liking "turn-based", as it is becoming a standard term to describe the type of play we are talking about. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turn-based_strategy
Correspondence Chess is fine also... in the chess world, the meaning is well known, at least among experienced players.
Correspondence Chess for sure, thought about "Turn-Based" for a second, but just a second. Thumbs up to anyone who analyzed this poll as they would a chess game ^_^
POSTAL CHESS !!!!
Why is Turn-based Chess (17%) getting so many votes?
Isn't all chess 'turn-based'?
I think On-Line Chess and Live chess are pretty good, but I'll vote for Correspondence Chess
I had to choose correspondance chess. All chess is turn based, so using turn doesn't make sense. All chess on this site is Echess. Not all games are daily. Slow chess doesn't sound very appealing.
I don't see Anytime Chess.
This is correspondence chess!
