Let Bots Have .gif Avatars



  • Wh1t3W0lf

    it would be nice if bots were allowed to have .gif avatars, thinking as a bot dev.

  • Dreams

    That would be pretty cool!

    I personally see no reason why this shouldn't be available to all bots and not just a single one of a dev with nitro.

    Bots can already use custom emojis (animated and normal ones) from other Discord servers they're in without the dev requiring nitro for it and I see no real reason as to why bots shouldn't have gif avatars. I mean sure, gory avatars and seizure causing ones are a thing, but those could just be reported imo.

    And I can also not see a reason like "More gif avatars would decrease performance" as I would imagine gifs taking pretty much nothing from the performance. Uploaded gifs would be way worse here.

    I think that would be a good idea but the only problem is abuse so why not when a bot is certified we can change the tag and the avatar annimated, like that no Abu

  • Acco
    I don't know why bots couldn't...

    Make this an update.

  • chotaneem

    I completely agree with every one's perspective here cause it has a point to defend.

    It's easy to answer the "More gif avatars would decrease performance" opinion. There's the Reduced Motion settings right?

    ludzie, jak zrobic tego bota?!


  • Crnge

    You can upload them, go to the bot user, change the file type to All Files and you can select GIFs and it will not work. It will show the first frame but it won't be animated.

    Has nothing to do with Discord, friend. Ask that to the bot devs/hosters.
