Option to disable animated server icons on mobile
Certain phones have issues with the animated icons, some won't load them at all and some lag a lot. I noticed there's no option to disable the animation entirely like there is with emoji, this should definitely be an option for people that have issues with it
I agree. Server and profile icons going off like that without me clicking on them to activate them cause issues for me with my eyes and it’d be really useful to be able to toggle that off to make it manual.1
This is more than a performance issue. There are user like chaos and several people in my servers who have issues with the motion bot on emojis and server icons. The motion can trigger migraines, epileptic seizures and cause nausea in some people. It's a necessary health issue to allow users to disable motion, on web, windows app AND on phones.
Get with it, Discord! This is a health issue.1
Looking for related or similar requests, this is what I've found so far (Nov 4, 2020). Some are not specific to any single animated thing, but all deal with giving users better control/consistency regarding animated aspects. It seems strange I'm not able to find any response from the devs...
Make this a toggle-able option for all users, but ON by default. As of now, the animated icons are pointless and nobody ever sees them. So much for a Nitro "incentive."0
