Even though wikis are a collaboration of ideas, that doesn't necessarily mean that it is a bad thing. Sure, most people like to be given credit of their work, but the threat of someone actually taking credit for your work shouldn't scare anyone. A MeldedIdentity is something that we all have dealt with. It can consist of a preconcieved notion by any one person, and that can come from any number of outside sources. I think that being a part of a larger group cna give confidence to some people, because they become a part of a group and therfore are not critcised as harshly. Who knows what people want, but what I do know is that individuality depends on the individual, and only they know what they really want.

=====MeldedIdentity=====
Wikis say content is created by every one who seeks to participate; it's free domain. A brace-face Iowa teen can edit the work of a British Ph.D - and vice versa.
Writers schooled in old-world print practices cringe as individual ownership gives way to collective production. ThreadMode offers some means of identification. But then someone scoots two entries together, edits out the names, and boom - the contributers meld into the identity of the wiki. It's now melded and collective.
What makes us so worried about being recognized for our accomplishments -- even a two-line post on a wiki? We want the world to know what we've done. The fear on a wiki of not being given credit for contributing is very real and distinct, I think. Or maybe "fear" is the wrong word. Or maybe it's not. - LindsayLarson
Therefore, being part of a MeldedIdentity might actually be another expression of individuality.
And, of course, that is all a bunch of nonsense and double-talk.
Deletions:
For writers especially, this appears to be a prospective downfall of wikis, at least at first. Writers are used to claiming and copyrighting anything and everything. It's a competitive field, after all, and producing a lovely poem or bit of prose could very easily have taken several drunken, sleepless nights, so we'd like our due credit thank-you-very-much.
Wikis say it belongs to everyone; it's free domain. A brace-face Iowa teen could edit the work of a British Ph.D.
Writers cringe. At least the ThreadMode offers some means of individuality and identification. But even then someone could scoot two entries together, erase a name, and ''boom'' there goes the writer's credited writing. It's now melded and collective.
Wikis say wait, because you can reverse it. You can edit ''them'', too. And what's so terrible about sacrificing your singular identity, anyway? It'll give you something new to write about.
