These are your likely options: Server Fault - related to cloud computing platforms that you might manage or configure your self Stack Overflow - related to programming against a cloud computing platform or an API etc Web Apps - needing help with a cloud based app from a user's perspective, not a developer's Pro Webmasters - running a cloud based app on a ...

Don't read too much into the current changes. Right now, careers.serverfault.com simply redirects to careers.stackoverflow.com - and yet, we both encourage employers to post their sysadmin jobs and advertise the service on Server Fault. The project currently underway simply moves that site from a separate domain with separate profiles and additional login ...

We used the same sprite position since we had the offsets in the CSS for where LinkedIn used to be, this was a big time saver across all the site themes. Buuuuuut, we missed some sprites: Stack Apps and Server Fault. A build is rolling out now with new sprites and cache breakers to resolve this.

The simple answer: Don't. The more detailed answer: Each SE has a specific set of FAQ and guidelines that specify what kind of questions may be appropriate there, and yes, there's a lot of overlap between the different SE sites. Your example is likely a usage issue of Apache on Ubuntu, so my gut feeling tells me that asking the question on Ask Ubuntu ...

Flag for moderation attention and ask for migration to Server Fault, the off topic list only includes Meta and the four most common migration targets. Keep in mind that questions that are on topic on Stack Overflow will not be migrated, even if they are on topic on an other site, and that sub par questions will not be migrated in general. Lastly; migration ...

In my opinion, on Server Fault the level of ability is not as important as the role of the server/network and your level of responsibility for it. Generally, we expect you to have root/admin access. The question should not be about things only serving your home. There are already questions that cover most of what you mentioned in your comments – though ...

Yes, it's allowed - folks do this all the time on Stack Overflow. Indeed, some of the top users on the site have used it to provide support for products they're affiliated with. When done right, it works really, really well for everyone involved... ...but when done wrong, it is an embarrassment to us all. The critical factors to making this work are: ...

We've solved the problem in the short-term. We're looking into the long-term solution. We'll have a postmortem report when everything is completely fixed. The short version was a lack of disk space but, of course, that's just part of the whole story. Thank you for your patience!

I headed over to Server Fault to check the sprites, as Tim hinted this might be the source, and can confirm that the LinkedIn icon is still present. You can refresh all you like, alter the version query value, it's definitely still there. After going through the full list of sites over on the Stack Exchange site, I can find no others where this occurs (I ...

Looking through the current questions on Stack Overflow that have this tag most of them appear to be good fits for the site. Of course the general topic of high availability will often come down to server configuration so belong more on Server Fault, explaining why there are under 200 questions on Stack Overflow, but that doesn't mean at all that valid ...

You should choose the Stack Exchange site where you think your question has more chance to get an answer between those sites where the question is on-topic. If the question is about different aspects, for which a different Stack Exchange is appropriate, then you should split the question in different questions you ask in different Stack Exchange sites. You ...

It looks like they just updated this to include G+, and get rid of LinkedIn as per this screenshot: If you refresh or wait a little while, it should change.

The "What's on topic here" Help Center pages are well equipped to show the differences, which you linked to (so maybe I've misunderstood your confusion): Network Engineering On Topic Questions one would encounter while operating, maintaining, purchasing, or managing an enterprise / service provider network. The question should be about the operation of ...

Server Fault does have a new FAQ page, but it's not /help. It's the About page (which anon users get linked to in a big, shiny button) The new About explains the target audience, introduces a user to the site, and has bullet points (yay) for the "what's on topic"/"what's off topic" bits. The target audience and bullet points are mod editable. The new /...

It doesn't look like it's enabled on Server Fault at all, but for the sake of completeness... Syntax highlighting first has to be enabled on the site and then it can be configured on a per-tag basis. If your question has a tag that'd trigger syntax highlighting in code blocks, you can use <-- language: lang-none --> to turn it off before a ...

While not live, there is a site proposal in the "Definition" stage for Practical cloud computing. With additional test questions, and clarification about what type of cloud computing question you are asking, this site may fit your needs if it enters private/public beta.

As has been mentioned, without more context as to what you're asking about, it's hard to tell. You might also have some luck, if your questions are about using Cloud Computing for HPC or other scientific computing, over at the shiny new Computational Science beta site: https://scicomp.stackexchange.com/

In my opinion it fits ServerFault for two reasons in their 'What topics can I ask about here': Server and Workstation operating systems, hardware, and software. Operations, maintenance, and monitoring. Maintaining driver packages is a typical operation for an administrator, so it fits here.

Most of this is a cross-post of my answer from the MSO thread, since I'm not sure if the OP read the MSO post...spoiler alert, though: it's not much different from what Shog said. The job board will continue to have both programming and sys admin jobs. What's changing is that the job-seeker experience of the job board will not live on a separate site ...

Looks like ServerFault is back up now.

it is not for ServerFault. From their help center on-topic list: Server and Workstation operating systems, hardware, and software.

This seems like a question which would be better received on the Pro Webmasters Exchange "Pro Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional and enthusiast webmasters focused on how to operate websites. Questions here are commonly about search engine optimization (SEO), domains, and web-hosting." -Webmaster's topicality

The logo changed to a little g+ icon for me when I reloaded this morning. You can see it near the bottom of this sprite: I assume you'll get the updated sprite soon.

It shows a Google+ icon there for me. Perhaps you're using an old version of the CSS sprite image? If you look directly at the CSS sprite image, there is no LinkedIn icon there at all.
