What should be done about [code-golf] on Stack Overflow in light of the new CW policy?

I'd like to ask an original code golf question. So I typed it up, eager to see what kind of regex nonsense the perl hackers would spew at it and someone's ludicrous response in brain***k, but when it was time to hit submit, there was no Community Wiki question button to press.

Now, I understand the rationale behind a CW question. I used to not, but I've spent some time on SO and I know how things work. That said, I'm not sure how to ask my code golf question without being attacked by the SO police since there's no CW.

What can I do about this?

As you have discovered, CW has been disabled for new questions. There's a question out there about what happens to code golf now that may interest you. –  Pops Oct 20 '10 at 20:05
    
Thanks, you should post this as an answer so I can upvote and accept it. I think I'll just ask the question anyway, flag it for CW, and see what happens. –  Rafe Kettler Oct 20 '10 at 20:11

thanks, but I think this is basically a dupe of that second link, so I don't want any rep for it. –  Pops Oct 20 '10 at 20:12

There were a lot of negative things happening with questions that started out community wiki, so we decided it is better to not allow that to be a user controllable option.

For now, if you need a question to be community wiki, flag it for moderator attention.
