We'll make an exception and unlock and reopen the Showcase of Languages thread. In this (hopefully final) meta posts, we have to decide what this exception will cover, i.e., what changes we should make to the question before unlocking it, and what changes the community should make to the answers after it has been unlocked.
Below, there are a few answers that represent the different parts of my own proposed changes, which became the highest voted answer to the previous discussion. Because the community members might have cast their votes (or refrained from casting them) because they agreed with certain proposed changes but not with others, here you have the chance to vote for them separately.
In case there are other changes you'd like to see happen, just add an additional answer. Please don't post "negative answers" that propose something should not be changed; just downvote the answers you disagree with, post comments explaining your downvotes, and/or discuss the specific changes in this chat room.
Once the scores have stabilized, a moderator will alter the question based on those scores and unlock and reopen the thread.
