I asked a question about connnecting a printer to Google Cloud on Server Fault and he put it on hold stating:

Questions on Server Fault must be about managing information technology systems in a business environment. Home and end-user computing questions may be asked on Super User, and questions about development, testing and development tools may be asked on Stack Overflow.

This is a network printer we’re trying to bring on-line in our subnet which is for guest purposes only.

Dell’s C3765 printer is for workgroups.

What’s not business?

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • Do you mean this question on Server Fault? It seems like the closure is correct; Server Fault is about “… managing information technology systems in a business environment.” and then the closure continues to say, “ Home and end-user computing questions may be asked on Super User…” So perhaps that question should just be moved there? – JakeGould Sep 6 '15 at 17:25
  • Your original question is concerning Google Cloud printing so should be asked on webapps.stackexchange.com as questions about webapps are off-topic on Super User – DavidPostill Sep 6 '15 at 17:28

Everyone makes mistakes, myself included.

This does indeed appear to be a business printer, and so I've reopened the question (and removed an inappropriate tag).

You may still want to improve the question, as it seems to be lacking sufficient detail, and the community may still choose to close it again.

  • To be honest, I still think the post would be better on the Web Applications site since the crux of the issue seems to be focused on the web-app aspect of this setup. Definitely an edge-case here. – JakeGould Sep 7 '15 at 1:32

    @JakeGould We don't look for the best fit. We look at is it on topic. And if it isn't, we should look at is it a good question and if so we can check if it fits another SE site. – Reaces Sep 7 '15 at 5:24
  • Michael, Thanks for reopening. I really just didn't know how to reach you. Even the comments to go to Web Apps are much appreciated. – Saul Fine Sep 8 '15 at 0:58
  • I didn't see any obvious errors in the firewall, but I'll look again. With respect to researching, I couldn't find anything about the error I'm currently receiving--even on the dell KB. The only thing I noticed were some people failing to register because they didn't have google cloud enabled printers. My printer clearly is cloud enabled (it's actually a button on the interface). – Saul Fine Sep 8 '15 at 1:16
