A lot of user from our space, can't edit the reporter filed on the ticket of an specific project, even though I and other users are in the administrators group, we can't edit the field.
Roles are groups are different things. In your project, project role administrators has the permission to modify reporter. You can see who are in this role on People tab on the left.
Also as I said earlier, reporter field should be on the edit screen of your project. Maybe someone removed it since then?
I faced the same issue and this was the solution. Reporter can be seen on the "screen" even if it's not assigned to the screen and therefore it can't be edited :)
However, for me, it doesn't make sense that the field is shown on the edit issue screen even if it is NOT assigned to the screen. Should it be like this? Well, it's another discussion and doesn't belong to this topic.
