Contributors should be able to upload
|Reported by:||jane||Owned by:|
Workflows and typical post content have evolved since the roles were defined. Posts frequently contain images, video, etc. As it is now, for someone to be able to put an uploaded image or video in a post, they have to be an Author, because contributors have no upload rights. This means that if a post contains any media, the person writing it has the ability to publish. There's a big gap now for use cases where a site owner wants to curate/edit contributor submissions before publication but wants those contributor posts to not be limited to text-only creations.
Proposal: allow contributors to upload media files (kept as draft, not published until approved by higher role).
