Reputation and Privacy
You do not need to reveal your offline identity, but having an account gives you a fixed, Wikiversity identity that other users will recognize. Editing Wikiversity, while logged in, lets you build trust and respect through a history of good edits. It is also easier to communicate and collaborate with an editor if we know who you are (at least, who you are on Wikiversity). It is also easier for veteran users to assume good faith from new users who take the effort to create an account (and you may well become a veteran user yourself someday!).
You are actually more anonymous (though more pseudonymous) logged in than you are as an "anonymous" editor, owing to the hiding of your IP address. Before selecting your username, you should consider various factors, including privacy and the possibility of offline harassment. For example, if you include personal information, such as your email address, in your Wikiversity username, you may attract junk mail to your email account.
