    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.

    I'd pay money for this feature.

    "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.

    For me this would be an extremely useful feature.

    As many people have already alluded to, a different avatar for certain servers would be best given the content of that server (perhaps a funnier avatar than your typical go-to would be best for a memes server). It's also sometimes handier for the likes of certain gaming communities (most notably role-play communities) to be able to identify you by a certain game-face or other identification outwith your typical discord avatar. I happen to be one of those people who would benefit from this.

    A third point however — and one that a lot of people haven't yet brought up — is the ability for discord to be able to have dual functionality across both the gaming/internet world of communities and real life application. Right now, I'm sure it wouldn't be contested that discord is primarily use for gamers or other internet-based communities OR a real life application. These aren't typically interchangeable with the current state-of-play, because gamers don't want to have real-life friends/business partners/colleagues etc see their gaming picture, and on the flip side, real-life entities don't want to have their real life face being seen by the likes of potential strangers on the internet.

    Alas, by introducing this feature, you not only improve the functionality of discord and allow for gaming communities to enhance their operations through it's use, but you extend the use and feasibility for discord across platforms that you may not have originally been targeting.

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

    First post was about a year ago...

    That is a nice idea..

    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...

  • JaxonZ

    why this is not yet in discord for a community gaming should have this for sure

    Decided on a new tactic since they haven't listened for over a year. Went to Play Store and posted a 1-star review. My post said it's a good app, but they get 1 star until this becomes a thing. Their response was something about giving them feedback. Yeah... Because that works. :-(

    When will this be a thing? I would really appreciate if this were a surprise update. We can stream and screenshare but we cannot change our avatars on a sever-basis?

    I hear ya but they just leave this feed alone without even an explanation of why this can't happen. I would love to hear from a coder or engineer as to why they have either turned a blind eye or it just can't be done. Otherwise, this feed will continue expanding.

    I've been subscribed to this thread for like 2 years and got more than 200 e-mails so far and non of Discord themselfs.

    Are you seing the problem here Discord?

    Ghosting us all is not the solution, making this finally a thing or telling us literally ANYTHING is the solution.
    I would even accept a simple "no, this is not going to be a thing", just get us out of this limbo already.

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

    A very useful thing both for the role-play servers, as for the servers of organizations, schools and just funny servers for friends.
