New Blog Template Plugin

Hey there-
We had this problem last year, and I'd like to fix it. Whenever we use New Blog Template to create the new blog, it doesn't add the User/administrator of that new blog.

We keep having to go in and add the user manually. Now- on top of that, what we'd like to do is not give these new users Administrator Roles, but we created a Special Role for them called "Student."

It would be great if new blog templates had a drop-down so we could specify what Role we wanted to give the New blog owner.

So- how can I make sure NBT is adding the Users automatically?
