After some discussion in chat, I think it would probably be best to discuss whether list/CGCC-style tips questions would be allowed. In this format, a somewhat broad question is asked, like "Tips for golfing in Python" on CGCC or "Common ways to optimize an interpreted language" on PLD, and each answer provides a single method, with the goal of collecting a large list of possible tricks as a reference.
So, should this be something our site will allow? And if so, what rules should exist around these?
I think some such questions would be valuable, and should be allowed; they are likely to be among the most popular Q&As on the site.
That said, there are a limited number of list questions which could be clearly scoped and useful enough to be suitable, and it's likely they would all be asked within a couple of years of the site going live. I would expect the site to reach a point where all the suitable list questions have already been asked. (I suspect Code Golf has already reached that point, for example.)
I personally think that given the scope of the site, these kinds of questions will be almost unavoidable. There's generally not a single best way to implement things, and it's important to know what approaches previous languages have used and why they might be preferable. It might be a good idea, if list questions are allowed, to require them to be compared amongst themselves instead of just a simple listing.
We'll need a guide that allows us to determine which are allowed.
Many of our questions, and I feel many tips questions could qualify into this, have overlaps with other websites, like how pxeger pointed out on Ginger's question (although not tips). We'll need a concise guidelines that allow us to determine which tips questions will be allowed.
For example, a question like "Tips for making [random-lang-name] more intuitive to programmers" might be as suitable on https://ux.stackexchange.com/ as on ours. In this case, we should probably consider migrating it there, and if it is rejected, we should close it, else all well and good. My bad, Redwolf pointed out this was wrong.
If any list questions are going to be allowed, they need follow Server Fault's "canonical" format (eg here), and should most likely also be forced to be Community Wiki (like this)
In general list-type questions are bad fits for SE
When they aren't, they're something that should be a growing-but-forever-and-always "authoritative resource" - which means they shouldn't allow the original poster to accrue karma over time just because the user happened to be the first to post it
