There's no context to the dashboard when a user visits it right now. We should offer some text on the right of our header generally explaining what the dashboard is as well as a link to a more detailed about page
Over to Aakash for coming up with some text to show there. Are you sure you want that explanatory text to the right of our header? Please make a little mock-up to show how this could look.

How about something simple and boring like "Mozilla's primary feedback mechanism". The "primary feedback" should be hyperlinked to input.mozilla.com/about where we go through an explanation (blog-ish form) on how, where and what data is collected (i.e. via the client) over each channel. I'll work on the page, so keep the assigned state unchanged.
contents of input.mozilla.com/about for now: Hello! Firefox Input is Mozilla's primary feedback mechanism. It is set up to be a method of one-way communication about your experiences in using Firefox, the Internet you view it through, and what Mozilla can do to make that experience better. The system is available over a wide-variety of submission mechanisms over all three major channels of builds. To view the submissions page related to your version of Firefox, please go to <a href="http://input.mozilla.com/feedback">input.mozilla.com/feedback</a>! <h2>Open Data</h2> We'd love to experiment more with this data, but we're only a few people. So, we need requests from you on questions you'd like to see answered! **Need explanation of a sane way to get to the solution in bug 605539** <h2>Source Code</h2> The code for the Firefox Input web application can be found <a href="http://www.github.com/fwenzel/reporter">on GitHub</a>!
Should we link to it from the front page somehow, maybe with a one-liner (over or under the chart)? "<strong>Welcome to Firefox Input!</strong> This is Mozilla's primary user feedback application. <a href="about/">Learn more...</a>" or something?
I added the about page, with tiny text tweaks in the open data section. http://github.com/fwenzel/reporter/commit/0588856 Aakash, let me know if you want to change anything about the page or the blob on the front page.

Yeah, it's a bit too visible for something that doesn't have much content at the moment. What about on the top right of the page within the navigation bar?
Either that, or maybe we just put the text into a side bar box above the message count on the right? Or is that still too visible? If you want it in the nav bar, it'd show up on every page. What should it look like, then?

Created attachment 503507 [details] mockup of link and text This should suffice. The mock-up does a poor job of showing position here, but adjust it to the right of the page.
All right, the box is now being hidden when a cookie is set, which we do on the first visit. http://github.com/fwenzel/reporter/commit/607d805
