The post-function runs after the use commits the "create" transition.  If you're setting the reporter with a post-function, remove it from the "create" screen as whatever the user is going to put in is going to be overwritten with it.

Pre-filling the reporter field on the create screen, then allowing them to change it,  needs to happen as part of the screen rendering - you'll need javascript, or a Behaviour from the Script Runner add-on to do that.
