Lord of the Rings Summer Finale

Summer is ending, which means it's time for us to send it off with our traditional bang of The Lord of the Rings extended cut weekend. But wait, there's more! This year we can finally run the extended cut of The Hobbit! I think that clocks the whole experience in at nearly twenty-four hours of Middle Earth for your eyeholes all week long.

We will still be streaming the new episode at its regularly scheduled time on Saturday, and the lotto will return September 2nd. Below you will find a simplified schedule of this week's events.

  • Monday-Wednesday: The Hobbit Trilogy Extended Cut at 7pm EDT
  • Thursday: No Movies
  • Friday: LoTR:Fellowship of the Ring at 7pm EDT
  • Saturday: LoTR:The Two Towers at 2pm EDT
  • Sunday: LoTR: The Return of the King at 2pm EDT

Ban Amnesty

In preparation for the new season, all bans were unset on March 23.

This is both an olive branch for past troublemakers, and a bit of housekeeping for us. In previous years, we would clear the ban list around New Years, but we decided to do it in advance of Season 6 instead.


We will not hesitate to reapply a ban to any user that tries to earn it again. You are welcome to stay so long as you don't act like you've beaten the system. If you are banned, for the first time or not, consult the Ban Appeals section of the Rules. Note that appeals will be posted publicly, so always be earnest and honest.

Please take a moment and read the Rules and Help pages, as information may have changed since you last visited us.

We hope you're looking forward to the new season! Thanks for helping keep Bronystate a safe and friendly place to chat!
