    Hi ! I'm having problem uploading avatars from Firefox (40.0.2) resulting in a blank spot.
    Where uploads are fine from Edge or Chrome. Thx.

    New to Discord.

    I have uploaded my avatar twice now. Seemed to get lost overnight?

    Will you support additional insignia and emblems?

    With my previous setup, members had their country's flag and one or more insignia based on their role.

    What should the standard size be for an Avatar? I have one that is 450 x 450 but it has a small black ring around the edge. I am thinking it should be close to 480 x 480?

    my avatar shows as completely black. I've tried re-sizing and a few different formats, any other ideas?

    Is there an option to change the avatar size so that it appears larger in the text chat?

    @Six not at the moment, unfortunately. Image sizes are locked where they are.

    Hello, I'm having a issue setting up my avatar.

    Everything's fine until I get to the step 5. When I press the 'Save' button, it changes to that circling animated icon, like it's applying new settings, and stays like that indefinitely. Discord is working in the background, I can hear my friends talking, and they can hear me, but I can't exit the options. Only solution is to quit the application using the tray icon, and restarting the app. Avatar is not set, of course. The pictures I tried using are at least 150x150 px
    Same thing happens when I try changing it through Chrome or Edge. I do not use FF, but I'm sure it wouldn't work using any browser.
    After changing any other option, 'Save' button is working as intended, only saving avatar is bugged.

    I tried reinstalling the app, deleting cookies, deleting cache, trying to change the avatar in browser, while the app is uninstalled, restarting the app/browser/system...

    Here's the ss https://goo.gl/9VBKEb

    Anyone else having these problems?
    Anyone have a clue why this is happening? Any solutions?

    Is there any way to change avatars between channels? I'm part of a few rp servers, and run multiple characters but part of the intrigue is to have players not know who you are, especially if you're playing a cop on one channel but you're part of a smuggling group in the other. Is there a way to have an avatar that is unique to each channel or are you stuck with one only?

    On the discord android app after I click save to change my avatar it just reverts to the standard discord icon.

    Same thing happens to me. After clicking the save icon, the picture reverts to default.

    My avatar reverts to default after pressing save on the Android app. Also server avatars reverted to default, as did the avatars of 90% of my guild members.

    Changing the profile pic on the PC doesn't work for me, but it worked for me on Android. At first in Android, it said URI invalid.

    @Kachin we had an issue with this about a week ago, but got it fixed up. Are you still having troubles?

    Currently I can't update my pic, running the app on win 10. Able to select the pic and push done where discord will just indicate it is loading. Pic is showing in the menu but when I go back into the channel I still have the default pic

    For me my pic doesn't show up in any apps, windows, ios or android... I have all the latest versions and reinstalling doesn't help. Problem on servers? My old avatar was ok but I wanted to change it and got stuck with blank space. I can see other's userpics but not mine. Is this account-locked?

    @ViO You can do that in the Developer Docs section under "My Applications"
