    >I think they artificially alter the number of upvotes

    They did not. It's just poor handling of their systems upgrade.

    In November 2018 the old system (Uservoice) was converted to this new website. Some of the original suggestions got carried over, along with their upvotes. That is why you see so many upvotes on those other suggestions, they were accumulated in 2016-2018 when the old system was still active (anything posted by Nelly -- which is a system account -- is from back then). Not all of them transferred in the same way, however.

    Just another reminder, this specific suggestion for per-server avatars was in fact opened in early 2016 (former URL, now dead). It had something like ~10000 upvotes and 1000+ comments by November 2018. Unfortunately, it looks like no one has saved any web archive copy, so that is gone forever. This is based on what I remember when I checked it last time.

    When suggestions were transferred into the new system, they were apparently hand-picked. The above 10000 upvote suggestion (called "Unique Avatar") somehow did not come through, but for some reason this one (which only had 300-400 upvotes at start) was picked instead. So that means, 2400 new upvotes have been added to this since the porting over in November. Needless to say, the handling of feedback system upgrade was very bad.

    Adding vote as an incredibly needed feature.  People using pictures of themselves for their profile pictures are encouraged to only stay on servers with people they know in RL, and never join other servers (or to have a very generic image instead).

    i assume this isnt happening any time soon (since i always check the updates and i didnt see it listed ever) but i do hope it does happen, it would make discord on par with amino. As someone who changes their profile picture almost monthly (not sure why i do this, i just get an urge and change it) it would be a great feature to have

    This would easily be the greatest update for Discord, though there is no real reason to believe they will listen to this idea unfortunately...

    All I ask is for someone to stop by, acknowledge us, and provide such an explanation. I would totally accept that and give them the 5-star rating that deserve. (Questionable customer service forgiven!)

    Having the ability to have a different avatar on each server I belong to would be a great addition to Discord.

    i think this is a planed feature. Why? The API Model DiscordUser has two properties for AvatarURL (DefaultAvatarUrl and AvatarUrl)

    This feature is sorely needed. I have a DnD group and I would love for our pictures to be of our characters, but none of us would want that to carry over to every other server we're on. How has this been open for over a year with 19 pages and no response. Wtf

    YES I need this I’m already in a roleplay server that I’m in and it sucks that I can’t just put my pfp as obi-wan because of other servers

    Needs to be a thing for sure gamers, roleplayers and so many others need this. Just imagine in a game group that you need to be recognizable fast so by icon in and your stuffy place of work tells you your expected to be in the discord for conference calls or the project updates. Now your stuck choosing between enjoying useing discord for your games or your job!

    Its funny, this is now how old... and Discord DevTeam who claims to care for their users... just don't do it!

    "Oh yeah you can upvote it there and there and there... but they don't do shit... this is so simple to be done as the nicknames are... so what takes them so long? D:

    Paramount: Oh, people hate the Sonic design we made? Let's redo the whole thing and put months of extra work, pay, resources etc into this, to give the people what they want!

    Discord: Oh, so our users want a basic feature like changing their avatar on each server? No, I don't think we will.

    Come on Discord, please listen to your users. We need this!

    If they implemented this, their animated avatars feature that come with Nitro would gain value.

    I wish they'd at least address if this is possible or not. A lot of people are requesting it, so the silence isn't doing them any favors.

    This feature is more than necessary for all roleplayers that have more than one character per account. I need this so much!
