Hide the "describe what you've tried" bullet (new askers' modal)

Yes. This statement implies that if you've tried and failed, then you can post your non-working attempt on CR. We should remove that instruction.

if ( [conditions].isGoodTag() ) { return "keep" } else { return "burninate" }

Really, I think that the tag is really broad. We have enough tags that we don't need one for Conditions. (almost)All code has conditions in it for one thing or another. I really don't think that ...

How should we revisit our standard close reasons?

As I see it, some of the problems with the existing close reasons are: Ambiguity of "broken code". Some users seem to think that anything that compiles is not broken. Accusations of "not real code". ...

Can we replace the misleading [unity] tag with a more distinct tag?

I think this is a good suggestion. I would support it, but let's give it a few days to garner support in meta. I would propose that we follow the convention that StackOverflow has taken like you ...

for (post in [loop]) { post.tagMoreAppropriately(); }

Burnination is probably fine and the iterator tag probably suffices for the examples my previous answer references. The tag is pretty terrible.

The context of "Lacks concrete context": let's fix it

IMO the biggest and simplest problem is LCC being used as UCWYA. But why is this happening? I don't know, but I can guess. The reason's name "Lacks Concrete Context" makes it sound like any context. ...

Yes, blacklist it. As stated above: We already have separate tags for the most common data structures, so there's no reason for this one to keep coming back. Additionally, to define a post as being ...

Done. Rubberduck played a big role in the history of Code Review. If the links ever change, make sure you update your question so people can still find the way.

Can we constrict the [python-2.*] tags?

Yes! I think that is very reasonable, for 2 reasons: As you stated, we don't have individual tags for Python 3.5, 3.6, etc. and having python-2.x would be consistent. While Python 2.6 has some ...
