After a very long month, two hundred commits, and four thousand lines of code,
I think we've arrived at a point where I can call Bronystate 3.0 complete!
How did we get here? Well we were running Wordpress since Bronystate 2.0's
launch in March 2012, and unfortunately not all of us were quite savvy enough to
know how to keep it updated properly. It finally bit us in the butt in November,
but thanks to Saturn's quick work didn't result in disaster. Still, it showed us
how much we needed to get rid of Wordpress, and start using a system all the
staff could understand.
Keep on reading for a big list of all the new exciting things you can look at!
But wait! There's more!
Trilogy Summer is great and all but sometimes there's not just three
movies in a series but four. Or six! Or twelve! We want to give
them their chance too, since like trilogies they're part of a series
no one wants to see just the third movie of or whatever, so we're
having us another event!
For the week of December 7-11, we'll be showing the entirety of the
Harry Potter franchise! Two movies back to back, every day at the
usual Friday Night time. Eight movies, four days, with the usual
Friday Movie Night capping off the week.
And the week after that? Well that's a surprise.
Stay tuned to Bronystate!
It's that time of the week again!
Our winners for the December 11 and 12 movie nights are:
Be sure to cast your vote in the next lottery
Drawings are on December 12
With such a shiny new site we need more shiny new lotteries so go here for the lottery
Last movie night we saw some truly strange visions of the future but now we shall be going to the past and the time when we all thought the world was going to end any day, the Cold War.
We will be showing Animalympics picked by Pokey, where we shall see animals compete for the greatest honour in sports (and was never show fully since Cold War).
In the second film we will be going to space in The Right Stuff picked by richfiles, where we swill follow how America got to space (and naturally considering the time, a lot of the Cold War).
For the rather more peaceful world of Equestria (Twilight Sparkle making friends provided, naturally) we will see what is up about phonixes in A Bird in the Hoof picked by Shizuka and why a dragon shouldn't have a code in Spike at your Service picked by radiatedemotion.
So come join everyone for the Brony Movie Night at 7:00 PM EST this Friday or if it fits better, at the Euro Night at 2:00 PM EST on the Saturday.
We know it's been a confusing couple of weeks, and in the mess of me
building up the site last week we weren't able to get a lottery out
in time for Friday. It's short notice, but here's a link for the
Saturday lottery, for the December 4 movie night.
What's showing this week you ask? Well we had to pick, so we're going
with a couple of our favorites:
A site redesign is long overdue, and we're sick and tired of looking over
our shoulders at the pile of hacks that was Bronystate 2.0, so we're doing
it! Shizuka has been working hard every day putting things together, and
is almost done with the major features of our first release.
This page will still change drastically between now and when she considers
it "done", so look forward to these features still coming:

This page may change drastically between the time you look now and when it's "finished", but look forward to these features we
still have coming for you!
A site redesign is long overdue, and we're sick and tired of looking over our shoulders at the pile
of hacks that was Bronystate 2.0, so we're doing it! We're going to be working hard on getting everything
running and looking pretty. And by "we" we of course mean Shizu, Saturn, and Phase.
This page might change drastically from the time you're looking now to when it's done, but look forward
to these fantastic features we have planned!
