User roles - Contributors' access, ability, privacy

  1. Hello,
    I have questions regarding User Roles options.

    1/ I would like to acknowledge contributors by adding them as Users on my blog. However, i would rather not give everyone unfettered access to each-others and the historic log of the Site Stat page (though, it'd be good if they could see the number of clicks to their own posts).
    Is there a way to make such (or any) limits to Users access to the Stat??

    2/I would like "Contributor" Users to have the ability to upload files/images.

    3/Is there a way to put two users/authors name on some posts - to indicate joint work?

    Please tell me if the above issues can be addresses by using a specific theme or upgrade or any other tool?

    Thank you very much.

    The blog I need help with is danielberhane.com.

    Also note that there is no upgrade you can purchase that achieves what you ask for ie. varying established contributor access from what's stated in support documentation on a free hosted WordPress.com blog.

  3. Some themes display author bylines and some do not. You can switch to a theme that does display a byline. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/08/15/author-displayed-or-not/ No themes I'm aware of provide for multiple author bylines but nothing prevents one from typing them into the first sentence in any post.
