I created a member and member group specifically for the purpose of holding any deleted members data. Basically, when I delete a member, all its entries and comments would be reassigned to the aforementioned member.
However, when I tried deleting via EE Control Panel Admin, I noticed that the aforementioned member is not in the select dropdown of members to reassign to.
After a quick check, it seems to me that the choices in the select dropdown are the ones in the same member group as the member we are deleting.
Is there a way to circumvent this? If not, what is the purpose of this rule?
