I would like to have people write on my blog and i am ok with editing their own posts while on draft. However, once their posts are published, I wouldn't like them to be able to edit/delete any published posts, not even the owned that they have written.

Is there a way to do that ?

The contributor is not allowed to edit publish posts ? I thought they were allowed to edit their own ones. –  SpyrosP Nov 13 '12 at 20:55
