Schema for Teahouse replies dataset[edit]

  • archive: sequential archive id, so archive 1 corresponds to Wikipedia:Teahouse/Questions/Archive_1.
  • title: canonical title of the thread, as listed in the archive. May differ from original thread title, if that title was edited before the thread was archived.
  • replyno: position of the reply within the thread.
  • isreply: whether the post is a reply or not (non-replies are often the question that initiated the thread).
  • timestamp: timestamp in UTC.

  • selfreply: whether the reply is to a thread started by the same author.

  • welcome_prev_page: proportion of first replies in threads on the previous archive page that started with a welcome.

  • policyprop_prev_page: proportion of policy links to total words in first replies on the previous archive page.
