[Solved] Keeping comments from "deleted user"

Hi All,

Just a quick question. Let's say a user deletes his account, but we want their comments to stay on the site under the name "deleted user" or "deleted member". Is this possible? I believe Reddit does this when a user deletes their account. You can still see what they've posted, but instead of their original username, you see "deleted user".

Thanks!

Hi @wpuser,

You can create a new user called, for example, "deleted user" and attributing all content to this user.
