I am not quite sure why the 'ordinary' boards posters are being consulted about what appears to outsiders to be a secret society? Or a series of secret societies. How can we have an opinion on something we know nothing about?

Boards.ie forums and despite the intention to have them as temporary add-ons, this was never really applied and some hosted forums have become almost permanent fixtures with a community of their own - and thats great to see but...
...finally active forums: ideally these would be merged or sub-forumed but some may be better suited to a single thread in a parent forum (active could still be content light, just consistently updated over time)...
...The end goal is to clear down the current Hosted Forums, thats the decision , however how we do that and timeframe etc is not set in stone so thats what we would appreciate input on.

Looks like I am in a minority of one in not having the faintest idea about any of them then.

There's loads of dead Hosted forums, these should be closed & privately archived. The active Hosted forums, should just be made private Boards forums (keeping existing access masks so nobody loses access, but possibly requiring some altered charters to bring them in line with current site tou's, though nothing untoward should be going on in them anyway)...then there's zero difference made to anyone. Rename the Hosted area to something like New Forum Testing, & use it to grow new forums & communities.
This doesn't need to be a big deal, simply a very slight change of address for any active hosted forums, get rid of the dead ones, keep/maintain their existing privacy structure, & move on.

Did any of ye actually read the bit about the active hosted forums?
Rich Text Editor.
To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph.
An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu.
Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
