    Hey guys, they clearly don't give af about our messages here. Make sure you @ them on twitter/social media. Open up a support ticket to get updates, etc.

    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.

    Spread the word guys and gals. Let's be obnoxious until they do something about it! Send the link to your friends. Tweet at them and be annoying.

    Opened up a ticket, fingers crossed for a reply other than 'we don't comment about upcoming features or the lack thereof'

    They avoided a direct reply. Here's the ticket and Discord support's response:

    Is this feature really over a year old? Jeez. Come on Discord, loads of people wanting this and unlike some other feature requests, this one is useful from a user's perspective.

    Not to self-promote, but i made a bot that does this for you in the meantime of waiting eons for this feature.

    Invite the bot using this link: https://discordapp.com/api/oauth2/authorize?client_id=687427956364279873&permissions=536881152&scope=bot
    -- Inspired by Tupperbox

    Just make sure its in every server you want a new profile pic.
    problem solved.

    For simplicity, the simple commands are
    ":>set_vanity [url]" (instead of url, you can attach a file from your device.)
    ":>remove_vanity"

    ":>help" will show the entire help message.

    Im no code head so for people out there like me this is how it works.

    1: Add the bot to your server

    2: type the following 

    :>set

    with a space and the URL of an image. Make sure you right click the image and open it in another tab to pull its true url location (the google share url does not work)

    Example

    >set https://i.quotev.com/img/q/u/14/8/28/Henr.jpg

    3: Done!

    4: Send another set command with url to change your image.

    See screenshot attached!

    Its working well so far!

    If this can be made into a BOT, then Discord can obviously can code this in as a feature......

    This just goes to show that if you want something done you have to do it yourself.

    Only server moderators can add bots to a server, right? So we would need to ask all of them to do it?

    FiretronP75, users with the "Manage Server" permission can add bots. But as a roleplay bot, I see no reason your moderators would reject it.

    I notice that the member's role color is lost when the bot re-posts. It's a small price to pay, but it doesn't cost anything to ask a question. Is there a way to retain  the role color?

    I imagine the bot would have to change its own role, so I don't see a way for it to work. But maybe folks here know more than me. :-)

    [10F] Prime Lorca, unfortunately I cannot change the bot's message name color. The bot uses webhooks to send these messages, which cannot be colored in any way. Sorry, that's how the bot has to work.
    Any future questions about the bot should be sent to me as a DM, or join the support server. The invite link and other information is in the ":>help details" command.

    Due to Covid-19, I'm seeing a need to use Discord in a variety of ways, both game, personal, and work related, with separate server configurations. However, from a presentation standpoint, I should not be using the same avatar for all servers, especially work-related.

    I will 100% pay for this feature. I'm already considering paying monthly, because i really love Discord and i use it every day, and generally i invest in services that i want to continue.

    The unique avatar per server makes sense from a gaming standpoint especially, but it's also a privacy and safety issue for me--which is the real reason i'm not entirely certain i want to pay for the service, because i don't feel like my privacy is being prioritized. It stunts my use of the platform because if i can't have a photo of myself in a private server where i trust everyone and a less identifiable avatar in a public server, i avoid joining servers that i really want to. 

    And with the virus locking everyone at home and many people using Discord now for meetings, it makes even more sense that we not be forced to use the same avatar everywhere. 

    Thanks for considering it, Discord devs. <3
