    Okay, someone help me out here.
    How many names does this Website go by?
    So far I have seen it as chessatwork.com, redhotpawn.com, and playtheimmortalgame.com.
    What gives? Why all the aliases? Are there more than the ones I listed?

    The abbreviation RHP is commonly used. Does that mean RedHotPawn is the most popular incarnation? If so, what does it say about us?

    RedHotPawn was the original name, so regardless of the site accessed people commonly use RHP to refer to the site. As I understand it, Russ & Chris picked it when they were only creating the site to practice writing php, and the name was a joke. Then the site took off, and people suggested having alternate names because RedHotPawn so that it didn't look so dodgy when they accessed it (I for one had the site blocked at work becasue they misread and thought it was porn).

    The Immortal Game was created recently in cooperation with the release of a book of the same title, which is apparently pretty good.
