    I was thinking this could be a great Nitro reward, but it would also be cool as a general feature for all if Discord is cool with that!

    Even if you made this a nitro only option, I would totally pay for this.

    This is THE most commented thread. There are a dozen or so still-open feature-threads with higher upvotes, but some are so silly I am convinced the votes must be being abused somehow. As others have said, this is an option that would get many of us to buy nitro.

    It's that important to us, we'd pay money, even for a limited number of slots. "Pick which of your 2 Nitro avatar slots you will show in this server. Buy extra slots at $N per year..."

    I get why this has not been done. Architecturally it's complex, because it means that every portrait request must be refactored to be accompanied by the id of the server.

    And how do you handle PMs, particularly PMs with someone that you share two servers with? Should avatars be given ratings, or rankings, so that it can show the lowest-(rated or ranked) portrait when multiple are available? Or should it just show the account's selected "default avatar"? Or should it show the "Discord default avatar" when unsure? 

    So, this is a hard problem. But it's a necessary problem to solve, and it doesn't need to be solved in one fell swoop: servers come first, next could come profile requests and PMs.

    upvote. i am a moderator across different games and while it is great that i can change my nickname to match the game for that server, its annoying and inconvenient, and from a user's standpoint silly, that i am forced to have a different game as my profile pic when not moderating on that game ... especially all while being a Nitro user

    They finally provided the ability for custom statuses, I have hopes this one might happen soon. There's a few ways this could be done implementation-wise.

    Have the option to set a "default" display picture, then have the option to set 2-4 more alternative ones (could be limited and increased for nitro users). Then once you've set those in your profile, you can select between them per-server. Even as a limited option, it still gives more options than there are now.

    Other option would be to literally have a one-to-one mapping between server and profile picture, this could also be limited, and extended for people with nitro. E.g. normal users can only have a different picture on 5 servers, and the rest remain as your default picture, Nitro get 10 or more or something.

    These arbitrary numbers and limitations would really depend on how these ideas are implemented on a technical level.

    For PM's you could display the default, or use whatever is based on mutual servers, if there's more than one mutual server - the person is already exposed to seeing the avatar you use on both of those servers, perhaps it could have a "slider" display that shows both, or simply picks whichever one was set first or something.

    I love this idea. I have people on Discord that know me by real name, character names, character avatar, or actual face based on the server I'm in. Being able to add my character's face along with the name for specific servers would make it so much easier to communicate and keep track of information.

    This is definitely a good idea. Loads of people would love this. If you happen to see this message, tweet at Discord to tell them how much this is in demand.

    According to their latest comments, they are "aware of the desire":

    That was back in May, however.

    This would be a fantastic addition, not only for customisation like nicknames, but also for allowing moderators and admins of servers to deal with user avatars containing NSFW or other content, which we currently have no protection against besides removing the user from the server. If an avatar is banned on a server, it should just show as no avatar, or allow certain roles to set it themselves like nicknames.

    Still following this thread. Still not buying nitro unless it includes this. Sure would like to see something happen or a response from the devs.

    And I'm still not buying Nitro EVEN if it includes this because I have 0 interest in any other feature it... features. I won't pay full price for 1 thing. I'd rather they had us charge for extra avatars separately if ever (especially since Nitro is a subscription service and I'd much, much rather pay more and keep something forever than pay for a subscription only have something for a limited time. This is also the reason why I'll never get Neflix or play WoW).

    THIS

    NEEDS

    TO

    HAPPEN!

    I guess I can try a different program to use to RP with, because, when I have 4 different campaigns with 4 different groups... and I'm playing 4 different characters....then using the same pic doesn't work at ALL. And trying to balance 4 different log ins works even worse! 

    FIX THIS.  please!? .... like... ASAP?
