Wikipedia is a collaborative setting with both combative and cooperative editing. We propose a new method for investi-gating the types of editor interactions using a novel repre-sentation of Wikipedia's revision history as a temporal, bi-partite network with multiple node and edge types for users and revisions. From this representation we identify signifi-cant author interactions as network motifs and show how the motif types capture important, diverse editing behaviors. Two experiments demonstrate the further benefit of motifs. First, we demonstrate significant performance improvement over a purely revision-based analysis in classifying pages as com-bative or cooperative page by using motifs; and second we use motifs as a basis for analyzing trends in the dynamics of editor behavior to explain Wikipedia's content growth.
