When I try to update the writer on an existing title, I am shown in big font my "trust score" as compared with any other users' who have updated the writer field, indicating whether I can overwrite their update. And it does appear to be limited to the writer field--director, actor, etc. all appear as normal.
Exploring this, I may have found a related bug. I am currently able to overwrite anything in any field that was included in the original submission, and by any user. Some users, I am unable to overwrite if they have updated something on a title after it was already submitted. But if it is a title they have added themselves, their trust score is back down to the apparent default of 50 and I can overwrite them in any field.
