Feature which lets users turns someone's avatar to default Discord avatar
During many encounters on Discord, I've stumbled upon people who have marginally weird profile pictures that make me uncomfortable by just seeing them. These people are not really all that worthy of being blocked, but their profile pictures and avatars kinda make me want to block them.
Blocking them prevents me from seeing their avatars and their messages but it's not the perfect solution, since if I click their message, I still see their weird avatars.
Now I was thinking, maybe Discord could have a feature which lets you, on the client-side, to prevent someone's custom avatar and instead show a basic Discord logo.
Right click -> "Disable Custom Avatar"
This is a small quality of life improvement which would mean a lot to me. I am active on servers that have some people with slightly disturbing avatars that I actually talk to and don't want to block. Nothing harmful, nothing too extreme to warrant any form of action against them, just slightly annoying and weird avatars that I would actually prefer not to see.
Also, could be a good feature to help people who suffer from OCD or similar disorders. Having something like this would make life easier and the platform more accessible and friendly.
Why hasn't this been implemented yet...1
Totally agree. And this should apply to server avatars, too.1
I'd love to see this feature, no need for it to be per-server since Discord itself is a fairly global affair.
Sometimes people will choose either ugly or purposely trolly avatars. Defaulting them would be an elegant way of addressing this.0
