Wikiversity is about teamwork.

Wikiversity is not about winning. Disputes over content or behavior are meant to be resolved per consensus and not "won". All participants here for the betterment of humankind are at all times willing to yield to consensus. Ego does not matter to Wikiversity; egos and pride are not helpful to learning and teaching, and ego and pride need to yield to consensus if a conflict between them somehow occurs. Any participants who at any time feel they should win are incorrect; there is nothing to win. Wikiversity is not World of Universitycraft.

Those who think it's more important to win, rather than help building a learning community we can all be proud of, are in the wrong place. Those here to habitually win or feel the need to rule, or control, are here for the wrong reason.

If this is you, you need to lay aside the need or impulse to allow ego, pride, or winning to take precedence over collaborative construction of a learning community. Please. To quote a film, "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one." Regardless of who the one is -- be it an editor, a body of editors, or a group at Wikiversity -- the only one who matters is named "Wikiversity".
