Server Fault is getting questions migrated to it that are not appropriate to it, because the close reason associated with migration to SF is overly general.
From the migrate to SF close reason:

This question is server or system administration related, and is a better fit for Server Fault.
But the SF FAQ talks of administration of servers, networks, or many machines. It's easy to see why SO moderators who are not familiar with SF might think SF is a reasonable target for questions such as this given that description. But it's wrong!
Request: change migrate reason to say "This question is about servers, networks or the administration of many machines, and so is a better fit for Server Fault".
Other examples — This is CW, so feel free to add other examples of questions wrongly migrated to SF that might have benefitted from the proposed wording.
- Add group rwx permissions to a folder
- What's the maxium number of files a Unix folder can hold?
- https://serverfault.com/questions/40812/broken-fetchmail-configuration - Well, actually, since fetchmail is user space, maybe the rewording wouldn't help
- Reach the same svn repository from a LAN connection and from a external connection (Qner doesn't administer office server)
- How to partition and format multiple disks using a batch script?
For your convenience, the relevant text from the SF FAQ:
What kind of questions can I ask here?
Server Fault is for system administrators and IT professionals, people who manage or maintain computers in a professional capacity. If you are in charge of ...
* servers * networks * many desktop PCs (other than your own)
... then you're in the right place to ask your question! Well, as long as the question is about your servers, your networks, or desktops you support, anyway.
Please note that Server Fault is not for general computer troubleshooting questions; if you paid for that desktop hardware, and it's your personal workstation, it is unlikely that your question is appropriate for Server Fault.
