We use WordPress.com to run a blog for our organization. We collaborate to create posts, I am the overall editor (and have the administrator role)and then we have one person whose job it is to copyedit ALL posts.
The only way I can allow our copyeditor to see ALL draft posts on the blog (created by any author) is to give her Editor rights - which is way more power (opportunity to screw something up - in her words) than she wants.
So I came here to suggest that a user role allowing someone to view ALL draft posts - but not change them (or other settings) might be nice for WordPress. This would also allow someone 'in authority' for an organizational blog to view draft posts and 'approve them' - without ever having to 'mess with' WordPress details.
The blog I need help with is efftips.wordpress.com.
