Shouldn't the users on codegolf be able to close their question after let's say the question's winners are announced without them having to have some amount of reputation?

    \$\begingroup\$ You should ask on meta.codegolf, first as this directly impacts that community. \$\endgroup\$ – psubsee2003 Feb 20 '14 at 20:56
  • \$\begingroup\$ @psubsee2003 I thought that the closing your own question was relevant to all the sites? Aren't there the same rules? \$\endgroup\$ – user12183 Feb 20 '14 at 20:57

    \$\begingroup\$ Mind you my answer is going to be strongly "No", because it will just caue endless duplicates when later comers want to play. \$\endgroup\$ – dmckee Feb 20 '14 at 20:57

    \$\begingroup\$ @LowerClassOverflowian the OP is asking for special rules for that particular site. Ultimately, it should be discussed on that community's meta. \$\endgroup\$ – psubsee2003 Feb 20 '14 at 20:59

No. The purpose of closing questions is to prevent answers being posted while problems with the question are fixed. If it's a good question, there's no benefit to anyone in preventing everyone from posting answers.

In addition, the last time community feeling on the subject of saying "This person has won: game over" was taken, it was strongly against.
