Drupal: Configuring Override Node Options Module
All the best modules are simply built, and override node options is exactly that. The purpose of this module is to give you individual control over the fields with the authoring and publishing fieldsets on Drupal nodes.
Within permissions you are able to set access control (based on role) to show or hide these fields. Some of the fields include sticky at top of page, promoted to front page, authored by and authored on.
