Avatars by server

    I definitely agree with this. I'm sure I'm not the only one but I don't use the same name as I do on every server I join. Currently, I am a part of 6 servers and I have a different name for all but 2. I do use the same name in 2 of the 6 but aside from that, my username is different so being able to choose a different avatar would be immensely appreciated..

    It would be a great addition, Nitro worthy even.

    Yeah! I really need this feature as well, because in a server I'm in, some people can choose to have a profile picture which in return gives them a special role. This would really be great so I don't have to go everywhere with it as my avatar.

    Yes please!!! I've been wanting this for a long time and have no idea why it isn't available yet. Share this with everyone you know!

    Oh my god, yes, I would love for them to implement this feature for safety/comfort reasons, as well. I’m comfortable showing my face on smaller servers where I am friendly with/aware of everyone on the server, but on larger servers I tend to get uncomfortable messages from people I don’t know when I use my picture as my avatar. As an officer/mod for several groups who are looking for new members I can’t turn off messages from people I’m not friends with, because I won’t be able to let new people who are interested in joining contact me. Obviously the current solution is to use an avatar that isn’t me, but I would love to *NOT* have to do that just to avoid possible harassment on every single server I pop into.

    PLEASE DO THIS!! This would make Discord by far better than other apps as competition. I thought About switching for this reason alone !

    100% Agree on this one! Those in RP servers would love being able to always have their character as their profile picture in that server, while still keeping their standard profile picture on other servers. (Also helps if you don't want certain people to know about certain hobbies of yours, ex. anime and such!)

    YES PLZ, DISCORD, this is a feature that everyone's been dying for. Im surprised its not implemented yet, like you tellin me i can spam a million pictures in a group chat but im only stuck with one picture for my profile? Also no way im not spending money for this, charging ppl for this feature is disrespectful, thats like charging ppl to upload pictures. Im interested in knowing if server mods would be able to change your profile pic on their servers like they're able to with your nickname? I wouldnt see why not. =^)

    Someone got feedback from the discord team in response to this thread a few days ago.

    https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360043205372-Feedback-from-discord-team-to-the-feedback-Avatars-by-server-

    Idk how to feel about the response, seems like they're putting this on the backburner but hopefully not yo

    As yet another user who tends to use Discord for a lot of different circles, from public game/community servers where I'm not comfortable with using a picture of myself, to private servers between friends, or collaborators on school projects, or even roleplay group members, I've pretty much never felt free to use any kind of image that would actually reflect some part of myself, and tend to stick to the most neutral ones that I can find.

    Since having an avatar is a way to convey a picture of yourself (pun definitely not intended) to the other users of an online service, I think that server-specific profile pictures would really add something to Discord, letting people express themselves and who they are much more freely, especially on a service that has such diversity of users and uses.

    I am still hoping to see this overlooked suggestion getting some love from the Discord team. Until then, I will stick to pictures of cute animals in protest against this oversight.

    At least for the next five minutes.

    This is a pretty basic feature that shouldn't be too hard to implement

    Welp. It's clear despite this being the most active thread in the Account & Server Management topic, Discord refuses to just give us a simple Yes/No/Maybe response. So it's clear this "Listening to feedback" thing was a lie to please the public and we fell for it. 

    That aside, I don't want this to be a nitro feature. As people have mentioned before, this would really be helpful for people who use discord for jobs and need this feature to change profile pics to change server rule breaking profile pictures.

    Discord seriously there is NO REASON for this to not already be a feature by now! We all want it and we all NEED it. This post is super old and still active because we all want this!

    upvote. i am a moderator across different games and while it is great that i can change my nickname to match the game for that server, its annoying and inconvenient, and from a user's standpoint silly, that i am forced to have a different game as my profile pic when not moderating on that game ... especially all while being a Nitro user

    I love this idea. I have people on Discord that know me by real name, character names, character avatar, or actual face based on the server I'm in. Being able to add my character's face along with the name for specific servers would make it so much easier to communicate and keep track of information.

    Agree 100%! Working in esports is a big goal of mine and so I'd like to have a professional profile picture in my esports servers but less serious ones in the servers I've built with my friends. It's a professional/friendship line too - Discord, please give us this!
