    Yes please! It would help so much to recognize other people or get recognized in certain channels.

    Discord is becoming more than just chat for gamers.  My public policy group is using it now to organize across the country.  It's so inappropriate to use the avatar I use on my 7DaysToDie server!  Please, really devs, what is it going to take to allow this feature??

    Please discord. I change my profile pic a lot to be funny on some servers. But also I use discord for some more professional ish stuff and having an anime profile pic in a business meeting doesn't make sense.

    Absolutely, strong support for this. I've wanted this sort of thing for over a year now.

    When I change my PFP for a D&D game or some other form of roleplay, I don't want to be locked to it for all my servers. And it makes roleplaying in two different servers around the same time impossible, or really clunky. 

    It'd also be neat to be able to pic an image that fits the theme of the server. A Bleach character in the Bleach server, a Dragon Ball character in that server, you get the idea.

    I mean, the only thing we can do is keep asking. I don't know their data on user-extrapolation of votes (i.e. 1 vote = 1,000 users, etc.) but I can tell this feature is a pretty popular idea. I would hate to think it's "beyond their capability" as people have suggested, but I say stick it in with Nitro and have it be a selling point as an excuse to generate revenue from adding it.

    Just as a reminder, the original UserVoice suggestion (link now dead) created in 2016 had about 10000 votes and 1000 comments by the time the feedback systems changed in November 2018. It got lost in the transition along with some others. This one is not the same and only had about 500 votes after the transition.

    Unfortunately, it seems the old suggestion is lost forever and does not appear to be saved in any web archive.

    I really don't feel like this should be a hard feature to implement, and definitely not something that should be behind a $10/month paywall. It's frustrating that this has been open for 6 months and there isn't any official word from Discord to even say that it is something that they are considering or not.

    This thread is so popular that there's been separate threads on this support forum just asking if anyone higher up has seen this thread. If you go into the forum page and look at new posts and start scrolling you'll eventually run into multiple closed threads that ask what the devs think about this thread.

    So far from what the support team has been saying to the other threads, it doesn't seem like Discord has anything planned for this feature at the moment. Or if they are they aren't sharing their progress publicly.

    I really hope that they do implement this feature, but make sure if you read this to share this page with your friends so that they can upvote this thread too and give their 2 cents. I've been subbed to this thread for over 3 months now, and for a forum that nobody really uses (lets face it you probably got here through a google search like I did) it seems we get a new comment here every day, which is impressive enough.

    Some comments here also mention identity theft because with the use of this feature people can copy names and pictures, but that's why we have DMs we can open up, and username # tags, and mod roles on big servers can help with those types of trolls. Plus if someone is going to mimic someone else, they're going to do that regardless of if this is a feature or not, i've seen it happen on public servers, they just change their profile pic even without this feature. Actually if we implement this feature it'll make it easier to spot impersonators, because the impersonator could change their server-side profile picture but still show their default picture and username when you click on them.

    DO THIS! This can also be used to prevent people from abusing the profile pic system to use inappropriate profile pictures. As a server owner i would like to be able to Change the profile pic of a user (in my guild) if I deem it as inappropriate, the same way as the "Change Nickname" system is used. This should also be opened up to developers so we can either change the avatar of a user in the guild or remove/hide it completely.

    The changes would only apply to the guild that changes it. So if i change someones avatar on my guild, if they are on another guild, their avatar wont change.

    Although this issue has the most comments, it is far from having the most votes. I guess that is why it is lower priority. I don't know how so many other issues got so many more votes than this one, without much commenting under them. Makes me wonder...

    100% needed!!!! I am running a couple servers for multiple RGP games. We would love our avatars to match the character in each game setting rather than our main profile pic. Please Please Please make this available!

    Great idea! My current profile picture doesnt exactly work in a couple of my servers. Your profile picture should be able to go with your nickname instead of your username.

    "It won't be a technical issue, it will be a storage issue."

    I've seen this point raised before, and I think the extra storage required would be vastly overwhelmed by all the pictures and videos people post.  When I download your avatar, e.g., it's 2081 bytes.  I believe the limit is 8MB per photo or video upload for non-Nitro users, so you'd have to have thousands of different avatars to get close to the limit for a single upload.

    Please add this functionality so that pics can be set accordingly for workplace servers or Xtreme Gaming servers.  Thanks!

    This is pretty much the only feature that I've been waiting for since Discord launched, with every update that does not implement it my heart breaks a little... Come on, devs, please do this finally.

    I'm not a Nitro subscriber. This would be the feature that would get me to pay some money. If this feature were added for free or premium, I would subscribe either way.

    Edit: FYI, I'm also reporting this on behalf of someone from one of my servers.

    This would be great as a free feature, or for nitro subscribers, or for boosted servers. However you work it will be appreciated.

    I would like to enthusiastically support the introduction of server-specific avatars. In my home/primary-D&D server with my close friends I need my avatar to be the Liverpool F.C. emblem or else my team will lose, but in my new/school D&D-group server I'd like something more context-appropriate. Thank you for your time and attention, Discord team! I love your service and it has had a positive impact on my life. Keep up the good work!

    just adding another +1 to this

     

    this would be an invaluable feature for RPers, Tabletop players, and just folks with any shred of creativity in their bones. No excuse not to have this when we already have per-server nicknames. These features go hand in hand.

    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.

    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.
