# Can this question be migrated, if the reason to close it was specifically being off topic and more of an engineering question?

I have this question:

Why are turbines more effective than propellers on airplanes?

Unfortunately, it has been closed. The reason is off topic and specifically belonging rather to Engineering.

I do not have the ability or privileges to self-migrate it, and as I understand the rules and guidelines, since the question does have an upvoted answer, it cannot be migrated in the usual way.

The only way for me to do this would be to upload it newly to Engineering, and delete it from this site. The problem with this is that it then would not have the already upvoted question on it (as I understand the answerer is present on Engineering too).

I believe this is a technical problem, and the question has to be either:

1. reopened on physics

2. or migrated to Enginerring

It does not make sense in my understanding to leave this on Physics and keep it closed with the reason to belong to Engineering. If the reason for closing it is specifically to be off topic and needs to be migrated, then technically not allowing it to be migrated does not make sense.

Except for a migration to Math SE, all migrations require the intervention of a moderator. If you are confident this question (or any other, as long as it is not $$\ge$$ 60 days old) is off-topic here but on-topic on another site, feel free to flag it for moderator attention with the flag button under the post. It is also possible to just post the question on another site without going through the migration process.
