This is no longer allowed I think. As per the SQ FAQ at

Customers may waitlist for a redemption flight up to three weeks before the flight departure date. However, please note that there may be instances on popular flights where waitlisting is not available.
The status quo ante has certainly been upended, and I am not entirely happy with the changes (I think). I'll need to digest this and wait and see how it works in practice, but closing all waitlists three weeks prior to departure will (adversely) affect my booking practices!
