Random from Underappreciated

I proudly present to you...

Fri Jul 11, 2014, 9:00 AM

For the past 8 months I've been working on a website and an app that can make the world a little better. Peerby lets you borrow stuff from people in your neighbourhood so you don't have to buy - saves you money, saves the world tonnes of waste.

And it works! We now fulfill hundreds of requests - every day. Members love it and communities are forming around the world.

Please do me a favour and give it a try :#1:

That would make me very happy!  :happybounce: This is going to be big and awesome and I wouldn't want my favourite people to miss out on it!

Enjoy & Thanks a lot :love:


PS there is an iOS App as well! (Android coming - note if you'd like early access ;p) Also, we love feedback!

BOO TO YOU, DUTCH "R". :stare: And I'm a native speaker! Is it any wonder I prefer to speak and think in English?

To be fair, there's at least two ways of pronouncing the letter, but I can only pronounce one of them and I never know which to use where. So I'm probably pronouncing some of those correctly after all. Which ones? I'm not sure!

Certainly not any of my own names.


Bonus complaint: I also can barely pronounce my username.

Anti-complaint: this is my first complaint in this forum after 6 years on this site. I guess my life is pretty good.


Ba't over.

This video makes me happy! Great memories :)
Since I started keeping track of them a little, I realised I learn many more things each day than I thought! Name one random realisation, fact, skill etc. that you learned today. :la:

  • I realised that I walk faster than most people I know.
  • Remembering great moments is harder than it seems (for me).

What did you learn today?

Hi there !
I have a quick question . ; u ;
Midday-Mew Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2015   General Artist
I can't find someone to help me. I believe the server at is down, so I can't view my help tickets and I can't see the Status Forum.

And there's no one in the chatroom called "help". There's never anyone in the chatroom called "help". I know there used to be people in there, but every time I go in, no community volunteers are ever in there. I tried looking at dA's twitter as well as recent articles on dA regarding Site Updates, but I still couldn't find anything.

What should I do? D:

I am so proud of you, kiddo. I kept that link you sent for your song, but it no longer works and I've been off here for a long time, and I come back and you are being such a decent person. That makes me happy. Keep up the good work.

Sorry to bother you, but I'm an administrator in :iconbeyond-universe:, the founder was banned from deviant-art for scamming others, I was wondering if you have enough control on the site to where you can promote me as the new owner?
