    Looks like Discord is turning a blind eye to this :-(

    First post was about a year ago...

    It's quite tragic that it appears to be ignored. I follow this thread because I want the feature that badly. I up-vote every post that is positive about getting server-based pictures. I've got $100 set aside in case they implement the idea.

    Keeping my fingers crossed... 🤞

    Seems like it's going to stay an idea.

    Hello devs! Can you please work sth out? It’s frustrating that being in different groups, you can only have 1 common avatar. Thanks for looking into this!

    Maybe have the usual discord avatar in a small circle next to the server avatar?

    If this doesn't become a thing on discord, I'm going back to Skype... I couldn't agree any more about this... It's so useful...

    Every time I read the pop-up in Discord about new features I am disappointed to not find this feature in the list. How many more times does Discord have to keep disappointing everyone like this?

    I had a grade school teacher tell the class that only idiots answer rhetorical questions. But sometimes I can't resist anyway.

    How many more times? Three. Seven, tops. But definitely no more than twenty, probably. Certainly no more than fifty.

    I'm just gonna mention my take on this again.

    As for this recommendation it kind of defeats the purpose of the feature. The idea is that some people might use avatars they don't want certain servers to see. E.g. an irl pic by default, but they wanna cover that on certain servers, not have it showing on top of another pic.

    So I moderate two community servers, have about a dozen personal social servers I'm part of, and two related to gaming groups. I have to use a super generic avatar that kinda works for some of them, but not others. Would really love to have a feature like this.

    Yes! This is something we need. I've seen this feature work well with Amino, and it's nice to be able to have different "identities" on different servers - and identities are more than a name.

    As a moderator for a very large discord server for a publishing company, I really need this feature. As it stands, I've had to ask someone to change their avatar since it wasn't the sort of content we wanted on our server - but since avatars aren't server specific, I'm effectively asking them follow server specific rules across all of discord, or be banned from our server. That's not a choice I should have to impose on people.

    Please, add this feature.

    I think they artificially alter the number of upvotes. "Avatars by Server" has under 3,000 votes and over 500 comments. While "Gift Other Users Nitro"has over 9,000 votes and under 30 comments. Really?! Over 9,000 people were anxious to BUY something from Discord? But less than 30 people wanted to talk about it? And less than 9,000 people are interested in each of the other more practical and urgent feature requests under "Account & Server Management"? It just isn't believable.

    Yeah I want this sooooo bad...

    Business servers need a certain level of professionalism, some servers need a level of anonymity, some are for close friends where you want something silly or your IRL face etc.

    >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.

    Pleaaaase!!! This already has enough upvotes. You could even make it so that by default it stays as your account icon when you join a new server. And make changing your icon for a specific server optional.
