In this paper, we propose an annota- tion schema for the discourse analysis of Wikipedia Talk pages aimed at the coor- dination efforts for article improvement. We apply the annotation schema to a cor- pus of 100 Talk pages from the Simple English Wikipedia and make the resulting dataset freely available for download1. Fur- thermore, we perform automatic dialog act classification on Wikipedia discussions and achieve an average F1-score of 0.82 with our classification pipeline.
