This is really a minor copy issue that we'll find an elegant way to fix. Careers is for programmers, and it is for sys admins. While the majority of positions on the site and employers using the search product are looking for programmers, we do have specific filters on both products to target the sys admin population on Server Fault. The only excuse ...

I pretty much gave up closing and close-vote reviewing during the recent Monica fiasco. Although I totally agree that closing bad questions is the right thing to do, and although I think I can safely say I've done my share of closing and reviewing, I gave up reviewing for two main reasons: It shouldn't be the moderators job to do the bulk of the closing ...

It's easy to think that careers.SO is designed to be monster.SE, but it's not. I've seen stated multiple times on SF that SE sites exist to drive traffic to the careers site, so I've always taken it for granted that it was meant to be a general purpose career site. Makes sense, so I had no reason to question it further in my one year of being on SF. On ...

I'm not against this change, but I don't know whether it'll do very much. I keep on top of the close votes review queue, to keep it under control, and it's pretty rare that I hit a question that has 3 or 4 close votes already; typically I'm diamond-smashing things that only have one, or maybe two, close votes (or often even just a flag). I obviously can't ...

Some of you may have noticed the Meta Stack Exchange post - Testing three-vote close and reopen on 13 network sites (it's linked in the featured on meta sidebar) - we've finally got this project under way and Server Fault is one of the sites we'll be running the test on. Starting tomorrow, I'll be changing the site setting and closing and reopening will ...

Thanks everyone for the feedback ! As the feedback is nuanced in the answers provided; not a No, but more like a shy Yes, but the suggestion is kinda up-voted much. I asked a CM and it's a change that can be reverted easily if it's not positive, to quote Catija on my question; We start every site with a test for 30 days. After that, we assess the ...

I agree with Ward, the community should be doing more of this but the fundamental problem has always been there aren't enough people voting to close. I could be wrong about this but there seems to be more off-topic questions lately. For example this person: https://serverfault.com/users/469795/bliako Asked three off-topic questions for essentially ...

What's the problem? Stack Overflow is a big draw for developers. That's what companies want the most right now. Even the systems administrator jobs are in developer-driven or dev-focused firms. There's no lack of systems administration jobs on Careers.SE, though. I can attest to the appeal of the site for hiring purposes across disciplines. When hiring, ...
