Avatars by server

    I'm just gonna mention my take on this again.

    As for this recommendation it kind of defeats the purpose of the feature. The idea is that some people might use avatars they don't want certain servers to see. E.g. an irl pic by default, but they wanna cover that on certain servers, not have it showing on top of another pic.

    Yes! This is something we need. I've seen this feature work well with Amino, and it's nice to be able to have different "identities" on different servers - and identities are more than a name.

    >I think they artificially alter the number of upvotes

    They did not. It's just poor handling of their systems upgrade.

    In November 2018 the old system (Uservoice) was converted to this new website. Some of the original suggestions got carried over, along with their upvotes. That is why you see so many upvotes on those other suggestions, they were accumulated in 2016-2018 when the old system was still active (anything posted by Nelly -- which is a system account -- is from back then). Not all of them transferred in the same way, however.

    Just another reminder, this specific suggestion for per-server avatars was in fact opened in early 2016 (former URL, now dead). It had something like ~10000 upvotes and 1000+ comments by November 2018. Unfortunately, it looks like no one has saved any web archive copy, so that is gone forever. This is based on what I remember when I checked it last time.

    When suggestions were transferred into the new system, they were apparently hand-picked. The above 10000 upvote suggestion (called "Unique Avatar") somehow did not come through, but for some reason this one (which only had 300-400 upvotes at start) was picked instead. So that means, 2400 new upvotes have been added to this since the porting over in November. Needless to say, the handling of feedback system upgrade was very bad.

    Please, please do this, devs. Please? We have custom nicknames for each server, surely it shouldn't be that hard to add another database field to specify an image per server too?
    PLEASE

    Adding vote as an incredibly needed feature.  People using pictures of themselves for their profile pictures are encouraged to only stay on servers with people they know in RL, and never join other servers (or to have a very generic image instead).

    i assume this isnt happening any time soon (since i always check the updates and i didnt see it listed ever) but i do hope it does happen, it would make discord on par with amino. As someone who changes their profile picture almost monthly (not sure why i do this, i just get an urge and change it) it would be a great feature to have

    This would easily be the greatest update for Discord, though there is no real reason to believe they will listen to this idea unfortunately...

    All I ask is for someone to stop by, acknowledge us, and provide such an explanation. I would totally accept that and give them the 5-star rating that deserve. (Questionable customer service forgiven!)

    Having the ability to have a different avatar on each server I belong to would be a great addition to Discord.

    Just wanted to emphasize the desire for this feature. I made a server for a guild of mine on an MMO, and some other players and myself think it would be great to have pictures of our characters as our profile pictures on the server, but that's not something we'd want in other places. It's great that our nicknames can be server specific, and it would be fantastic if our pictures could be too!

    I agree! I'm in multiple D&D groups that play via discord, and my characters are very different from each other. Would love this!!

    This is just evident that devs don't care what the users want. It is heavily requested, wouldn't hurt the users that don't want it, yet 1 year later, nada. I have to wonder if this actually even reaches the devs or just the tech support people.

    Paramount: Oh, people hate the Sonic design we made? Let's redo the whole thing and put months of extra work, pay, resources etc into this, to give the people what they want!

    Discord: Oh, so our users want a basic feature like changing their avatar on each server? No, I don't think we will.

    Come on Discord, please listen to your users. We need this!

    Hey guys, they clearly don't give af about our messages here. Make sure you @ them on twitter/social media. Open up a support ticket to get updates, etc.

    I wish they'd at least address if this is possible or not. A lot of people are requesting it, so the silence isn't doing them any favors.

    Spread the word guys and gals. Let's be obnoxious until they do something about it! Send the link to your friends. Tweet at them and be annoying.

    Is this feature really over a year old? Jeez. Come on Discord, loads of people wanting this and unlike some other feature requests, this one is useful from a user's perspective.
