How to write in the forum, and why are their 2 fields next to each other?

The TransforMap forum software “discourse” is a wonderful tool. As you get (and possibly answer) your first notifications in your mail inbox, ping people, easily quote posts, … you learn to love it.

###At the beginning it might be strange to write on the left side, and see your text emerge on the right side, as it will be displayed in the end. It might take a view posts to get used to it, but then it is as easy as writing email.

##Discourse is enabling to write in “markdown”, that means, that with easy script-language (e.g. # at the beginning of a line makes it a headline).
