To introduce users to your discussion, or provide key background information, you can write a background 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 background info, open the Discussion Menu and select ‘Discussion Settings’. In the ‘Background’ field, write your background info. Note that you can add links as you would to a claim (see: Adding a Link).
