Changing Avatar too fast?

    You're welcome! Glad I could help so many people unite in such a frivolous campaign for something so easily handled by your own efforts and intelligence. It tickles me how many people are up in arms because they need a software solution to a problem they cause by not being able to decide "between a few avatars" or being able to copy a square photo. :) I'm so glad I have this comment thread as well, it gives me hope that people who program will always have work, because people who can't do anything for themselves will always insist on people doing it for them.

    Thanks!

    I was replying to someone who specifically targeted a response at me, so as not to ignore them. I did not come here, see the downvotes, and make a post to lament them or bemoan those who made them. There's a difference.

    I do get it, I see why people are asking for it. I'm just presenting both sides. Running a large server that does occasionally get raided, and often gets random trolls, I tend to think about what's best for communities.

    People can already change their names as often as they want, and if a nickname isn't applied to override it they can list any racist or vulgar term they want and it'll show up for everyone to see. Mods can override that with a nickname, but what can be done about pictures? Nothing. Your solution to vulgar profile pictures is kick/ban.

    If you allow people to change their pictures as fast as they want, consider that trolls will certainly set NSFW images as their profile pics, then change them to something normal for a few minutes, then change back to the NSFW for a few seconds to make sure people see it, then change it back again to avoid getting caught and play the innocent "what, my picture isn't NSWF" when called on it.

    If you don't think trolls would do that (and are already doing it), you don't have a server big enough to have to worry about it.

    Once again, you seem to believe that simply replying to an ongoing thread means I care about the vote system somehow. If I did, why keep posting when all of you will just downvote each thing I say? Logically, I wouldn't. So obviously you're wrong.

    That's the difference between my arguments and yours. Everything I've provided as a basis for why I feel this change isn't needed is based on business justification and logic, as well as a bare minimum of expectations for common sense and effort from the user base. All I get back is "but we wants it" and laughs about downvoting my disagreements.

    You seem to think that replying is directly related to caring. You're incorrect. I reply because you post and ask me too. This obsession you children have with "white knighting" is too funny. Someone feels different than you and backs it up with half a dozen business reasons why your request doesn't make sense, yet I'm the one who is triggered.

    You literally can't be bothered to simply crop your photo before uploading it, and you want Discord to change their platform so you can just change it over and over again as much as you want. I'm the triggered one, but you can't figure out profile pictures in an online platform in 2019. Might wanna reevaluate your stance. lol

    That's already an option truth-4-sale. :) Go into your Discord settings and under Appearance you can change the Message Display section from Cozy to Compact. It condenses messages and hides the avatars completely. Enjoy!

    I uploaded a square icon, Discord cropped it perfect and in HD quality. Nothing irregular or terrible about the resolution of my profile image, or that of anyone else who isn't using a 100x300 image and being upset when the quality isn't pristine when it's made to fit specific dimensions. lol

    What is funny Nox is that you don't understand that someone trying to use a 2000x2000 picture isn't going to get the same quality when it's downsized to 150x150. So again, keep acting like you know what you're talking about, and keep talking down to others about this idea you have in your head, but you're entirely off base and it shows each time you reply with another example of what you don't get. It's okay. :) I understand that you're trying to appear smart, and I get that you're not. Maybe you'll improve someday, but it definitely doesn't seem possible given your history of comment quality here. Better luck next time man.

    Respect the opinion and how you presented in DMN. Don't agree with it, but respect you putting it out there. /nod

    Your obsession with this "white knight" mentality is quite sad. It's unfortunate that you can't handle an alternate viewpoint, especially one that points out all the reasons why yours doesn't make sense from a business standpoint. Dimensions are also relevant, as someone uploading an image at 150x800 is going to have a bad time, but should Discord have to spend time addressing that or should the average user be expected to have a little bit of intelligence and understand that there are some basic requirements for any profile pictures uploaded to any site on the internet? Hmm. One puts the onus on the average user, one puts it on a business which is not charging for their service.

    HMMMM. Have a good one man, keep wishing for handouts on things that with the tiniest amount of brainpower you wouldn't need.

    What are the dimensions of your photo Nox? There are countless ways to ensure your photo is perfectly scaled before uploading without having to pressure them to make a change that isn't really necessary. Nothing is broken, and the "improvement" by adding this would be minimal. This isn't asked for much because the majority of users (and people on the internet as a whole) know by 2019 how to upload a photo that will successfully display in either a square or a circle profile picture.

    Dislikes? On my comments? Oh no, it's the end of everything. I posted an opinion that disagrees with the original post that everyone is coming here to view, and everyone is downvoting the opposite opinion? Tragic. Catastrophe. What even is my life?

    Oh. Wait. I don't care. lol The people so up in arms about changing their profile pics every 10 seconds are the exact same who think that downvotes on a Discord forum mean anything at all. What a time to be alive.

    DatMemeLord, nobody's saying you're full of sh*t. And I'm certainly not saying Discord shouldn't listen to their community.

    All I'm emphasizing is that there needs to be some consideration for time and effort invested, and take the time to make enhancements that actually enhance the platform and will mean something to more than a very tiny pocket of the user base. That's not to say small changes shouldn't ever be made unless they affect everyone, but it's a matter of priority.

    There are far more servers that would benefit from increasing the maximum number of channels. There are far more users who have been asking for years to have better organization of servers in the left navigation pane.  There are far more requests for better role management and applications. There are just far more pressing issues than "I want to change my profile pic as much as I want and as fast as I want".

    That is my point.

    And as for AverBeg, you lost all credibility when you tried to base the reasoning for making this change on "the customer is always right". lol No they are not. They are always the customer, and feedback should be listened to, but they are by no means absolutely right, and no company is beholden to do whatever a customer tells them to simply because they're a customer.

    As a customer, I cannot walk into a vegan restaurant and tell them I want a 32 ounce steak and I want it while a professional opera singer serenades me, and I want it free - and I should get it, because I'm the customer.

    Grow up. You base your entire reasoning of wanting the change solely because you want it, not because it adds anything to the platform. So far half a dozen people have indicated on this thread that they want it, so if that's all Discord required then you'd be golden. Luckily, it is not.

    "The customer is always right". You clearly have no grasp of reality. lol Have a good one man, there is no sense debating business practices with someone who in any way remotely thinks that what you said is accurate. :p

    I'm trying to figure out the urgency in changing your PFP so many times.
