• This plugin attempts to override the default author meta box, but that doesn’t seem to work any more. However, it is possible to simply filter the options for the author dropdown list like this to get the same result:

    function add_subscribers_to_dropdown( $query_args, $r ) {
        $query_args['who'] = '';
        return $query_args;
    add_filter( 'wp_dropdown_users_args', 'add_subscribers_to_dropdown', 10, 2 );

    More details in the user contributed notes for the wp_dropdown_users_args filter.

    You could either place that code in it’s own plugin, or add it to the functions.php file of your theme.
