To introduce users to your discussion, or provide key background information, you can write a topic info section, which will appear in the ‘Info / Stats / Topology’ window. This window appears when users first visit a discussion, and can be opened at any time from the Discussion Menu (also see: Statistics and the Infographic).
To write or edit your topic info, open the Discussion Menu and select ‘Discussion Settings’. In the ‘Background’ field, write your topic info. Note that you can add links as you would to a claim (see: Adding a Link).
