Let's say I make a new forum post ("blog") and I want the public to see that user Mark wrote it even though I published it. Can you enable an option so that I can "Change the author of this topic" to transfer public ownership?

Sure. I have many blog authors who will post blog entries and they cannot re-post everything themselves from old site to this new site using UE. They asked if I could post for them but to change post under their names.
