As a successful decentralized online peer production system, Wikipedia has a large number of users participating in self-assigned tasks based on their interest. Participants often coordinate on the tasks about editing an article through the article's talk page discussions. Researchers analyze Wikipedia talk page discussions for various aspects such as coordination [13], conflict management [1], emotion [8], leadership [12], the relationship between Wikipedia article's talk page discussion and the article editing activity [5], etc.
