Code Golf have had a few issues on Stack Exchange recently, and some participants have been asking "[is it finally time that we jump ship and look further ashore]("

We've offered to host a community here and are currently trialling that in private beta with a handful of people contributing fairly actively so far. I was only dimly aware of this, but Code Golf never exactly fitted the SE model, and they got by with a few workarounds such as:

* sandboxing on meta
* using 'tags' for different question types

Fortunately, we have been able to accommodate both of those needs here in a less hacky way — we've added new question types particular to Code Golf, with unique voting rules, and enabled sandboxing by setting a question star threshold for allowing answers to be posted on Code Golf challenges.

We'll probably be doing more of this over the coming weeks, and some of the features may well end up being used on other communities. We don't want to negatively impact the simplicity of our code, but insofar as we can meet the needs of the Code Golf community without doing so, we'd like to help as much as we can.

If you'd like to join the private beta, please let us know in chat.
