    They avoided a direct reply. Here's the ticket and Discord support's response:

    Would love to have this feature, especially when using Discord between different content communities.

    I wanted to reiterate that this should NOT be a paid feature. Other services, such as Slack, allow you to have different profile pictures for each server you are in (though Slack does have a sort of different account for each server).

    Absolutely! This seems like a given if you can already change name.

    Let's be reasonable now... It seems that the Discord team are unable to develop this feature. Maybe we have alternative options. I was thinking about a script which checks what server you log into and changes your profile picture accordingly. Or maybe it could be done with bots somehow? I think with this delay we could definitely beat them to it with some workaround of our own. We should gather the brightest minds of the Discord community and make this happen! Nothing is going to happen if we just sit around and comment this thread.

    Though servers would have to deal with impersonation and a load of other things.

    Could you make it so that users can use different display pictures for different chats please.

    So for example, in one Server/channel (in which you have friends from Game A) you could pick one picture. And then in another Server/channel (in which you have friends from Game B) you could choose a different display picture.

    But *still have the SAME Discord account.*

    The only possible benefits I see from *your* pov is :

    1. Your users could customize more.
    2. Your users might be able to better organize their accounts/themselves.

    So it's *not* Just about adding flavour, it could also be a *functional* improvement. That's just my take on this idea though.

    This would be an excellent addition to nitro if you wanna look at it from a business standpoint. If you made it a free feature that would be awesome though. I wanna be Dr. Doom in one server and Austin Powers in others, let me do this Discord gods

    Discord wouldn't do this yet i think, because it will cause them to review their manner of storaging datas and will increase the size of all datas stored in the guilds

    Even if you made this a nitro only option, I would totally pay for this.

    Death Gun's compromise is pretty solid. Make it so everyone has it available but make a pay element for those who want more. I'm good with that or making it for Nitro boosted servers so Discord gets some money without making the whole community pay to get the feature.

    This just goes to show that if you want something done you have to do it yourself.

    Only server moderators can add bots to a server, right? So we would need to ask all of them to do it?

    FiretronP75, users with the "Manage Server" permission can add bots. But as a roleplay bot, I see no reason your moderators would reject it.

    I notice that the member's role color is lost when the bot re-posts. It's a small price to pay, but it doesn't cost anything to ask a question. Is there a way to retain  the role color?

    I imagine the bot would have to change its own role, so I don't see a way for it to work. But maybe folks here know more than me. :-)
