Could you please add a feature that would allow for members of one group (editors for example) to create a list of posts they would like another group (contributors for example) to be able to "Claim"? When a user of one group "Claims" the post it changes the posts author to that user.
I run a magazine. I would like my editor to be able to "pitch" a article idea to a group (contributors). When the contributors login they see a list of "pitch" articles and then "claim" that article and that article then changes status to "claimed or draft" in the user who claimed its name.
