Not understanding that it was (possibly) inappropriate, I asked a question on Physics SE that was very similar to a question that I had already asked on Aviation SE.
Now that I understand that it was (possibly) inappropriate, should I delete the question to Physics SE?
I don't want to disrespect the author of the one answer that was received.
Also, I don't want to lose the information content of the answer.
What should I do now?
Would it be permissible to copy the answer and post it verbatim, fully attributed as to who wrote it and in what part of SE it was originally posted, as an answer to my very similar question in ASE, along with a note that the question to which it was posted was slightly different from the one in ASE? And then delete the question from PSE? (I would not "migrate" the answer without deleting the question from PSE.)
Or what other course of action should I take?
In case it matters, I did note in the question that I had asked a similar question on ASE-- and provided a link to it-- looking at the edit history it appears that I added this note a few hours after the sole answer had been posted, and about three hours after I posted the question.
This is the question -- Is this vector diagram of the forces at play in turning flight correct?
This is the one answer that has been posted as of yet -- Is this vector diagram of the forces at play in turning flight correct?
Or should I just chalk it up to experience and leave the question and answer on PSE to stand? That would be my preference-- would that be acceptable?
I don't know if this is relevant or not, but the question was poorly-received on ASE. But I have no wish to delete the question from ASE. I feel that it highlights a significant flaw in the current flight training curriculum.
Of course, if the moderators at one site notify me that the question on the other site must be deleted or the other one will be, that would open up another can of worms, and I suppose I would delete the one from the PSE site. (While "migrating" the answer as described above, unless the consensus is that that would not be ethical or appropriate.) Likewise, in an even more extreme case where the ASE question were simply deleted by moderators as a duplicate of the PSE question, I suppose I would then delete the PSE question and re-post the ASE question. But, it has not come to any of that yet, and I have no particular reason to think that it will.
So the current question is, as things stand right now, from the standpoint of the PSE community, is it best that I delete the PSE question, and if so (or if I am essentially forced to delete one of the questions by action of the ASE community, and choose to delete the PSE question), is it alright to "migrate" the one answer that it has received, in the manner described above?
Additional notes-- I do understand that questions considered to be duplicates of another question on the same site normally get closed, not deleted. However since I did receive a note from an ASE user (not a moderator) saying I ought to delete one of the questions, I was trying think of what best to do to not lose the answer that was posted.
At least one answer to this meta question has suggested that the PSE question should be migrated to ASE, where it would undoubtedly be closed as a duplicate, but not deleted, unless moderators decided to take some unusual action for some reason.
My current inclination is just to leave it alone and disregard the one note I received (from an ASE user who was not a moderator) saying that one of the questions ought to be deleted, but avoid asking such similar questions in the future now that I understand SE policy and philosophy better. If moderators of either site let me know that this is not acceptable, then I'll consider "migrating" the answer as described above and deleting the PSE question.
