The meta links to the server fault meta community area, where it should be appropriate to ask a question about what is appropriate for server fault, before actually posting to server fault, and having your question subsequently marked off topic. But one cannot, until one has 5 points on server fault. So, here I am writing a meta question, off topic for server fault, appropriate for the meta site, so that perhaps I can subsequently post a later on-topic question about server fault on the meta site.
How does one place the chicken (meta-appropriate question so one can be faq-correct) before the egg (having 5 points on non-meta site, enabling meta questions)?
That being asked, now I'll ask the meta-appropriate question...
Having read the FAQ, it seems quite clear that a question by an IT administrator about one of his servers is entirely on-topic. Yet one of the first questions I read was from an IT administrator, in a corporation, having errors thrown by his print server, users complaining, him seeking help, and his post marked off-topic and shoveled off to superuser. Is the scope of serverfault far more narrow than the FAQ indicates?

Thanks for clarification on both, I'm new here. (sorry that these are meta questions, see above for explanation! I guess feel free to move it to meta, I cannot post or answer there)
