# Is there a way to easily find questions that aren't code golf?

I found this question from January, but the top voted idea doesn't seem to have been implemented. In this time between the end of school and starting work, I would love to get some solutions to questions out there, but I'm not a fan of code golf and there doesn't seem to be a way to find questions that are not golf questions.

There might be a newer question that I missed, but how do I identify questions that are code golf easily and ignore them? I've seen several code golf questions not tagged as code golf, but ignoring the tag helps a little. Is there any other solution to either hiding code golf questions or bringing out questions designed to elicit interesting solutions?

On a somewhat similar note, I'm interested in community reactions to posting non-golf answers in "code golf" questions? Honestly, it's all about the puzzle. If you choose to code golf it, go for it. But at the same time, if I have an interesting solution that isn't golfed, there's no way to post it without a duplicate question.

• ignore+hide code-golf seems quite workable given the volume of questions is not high. – Jeff Atwood Jun 2 '11 at 10:48

Using the tag search syntax (i.e. [king-of-the-hill]) does what you'd expect. You can also get to the contents of a tag through the "Tags" button at the top of the page. You an also exclude things from compound searches (i.e. [ascii-art] -[code-golf]), but alas it won't respond to just -[code-golf].
