We have talked about big list type questions in the past. This question is now on the front page again: Software to draw illustrative figures in papers
I don't particularly like big list questions, but if we are going to have them, then we should make some rules. I think at a minimum they should be tagged big-list and made community wiki. I also think that when possible the question should be required to include a template answer so that all the answers look roughly the same.
