    I would really love to see this as it would be personally nice to be able to alternate this. Also, it would be useful for Esports players and other organizations that need profile images as a type of professional appearance but also use other discord servers and don't want that image as the one they use in those misc servers. Additionally, it could be made a boosted server perk.

    Hey Discord, now that you "Freed up" all those ressources by not offering games any more with Nitro, how about you make custom user pics per server a Nitro perk? 

     

    That would actually be worthwhile. (and an incentive to finally put this in)

    Hoping community feedback is worth something I've decided to add my voice; this would be a very useful feature.

    Please consider implementing it, and no matter what you decide - respond! I think this posts is large enough to warrant that.

    Edit: Here is the image I would use as my alternate avatar

    It's name is Sprigg and it's a really friendly treantesque Warforged :>

    Would absolutely love this as a feature, something I think about everytime I speak in different servers!

    There are cases where avatars don't match with the server theme and custom avatar by server would help a lot. Millions of users need this. Come on!!

    I would also love this feature for at the very least Nitro users. This has been on the back burner for a very long time it seems, but it's a highly requested feature.

    I definitely need this. There are some servers where I'd like to use an irl pic and some that I never want to know what I look like.

    If we threaten to stop paying for Nitro, will you actually respond?

    I'd like to add my voice to this conversation. Running multiple D&D Campaigns with different groups of friends means that the dungeon master in one group doesn't want to look like the fluffy kitty from another.

    It's obnoxious because Discord still ain't bothered to put it in yet... Even with all the support to the idea.

    I still think it would be a relevant feature, because as a roleplayer and gamer communities member it would be nice to fit in the themes visually speaking and not just in name. I see those who speak of workplace profile pictures and that is true too, it would grant us flexibility in our identity without conforming to a single place that would influence it everywhere else.

    For me this would be an extremely useful feature.

    As many people have already alluded to, a different avatar for certain servers would be best given the content of that server (perhaps a funnier avatar than your typical go-to would be best for a memes server). It's also sometimes handier for the likes of certain gaming communities (most notably role-play communities) to be able to identify you by a certain game-face or other identification outwith your typical discord avatar. I happen to be one of those people who would benefit from this.

    A third point however — and one that a lot of people haven't yet brought up — is the ability for discord to be able to have dual functionality across both the gaming/internet world of communities and real life application. Right now, I'm sure it wouldn't be contested that discord is primarily use for gamers or other internet-based communities OR a real life application. These aren't typically interchangeable with the current state-of-play, because gamers don't want to have real-life friends/business partners/colleagues etc see their gaming picture, and on the flip side, real-life entities don't want to have their real life face being seen by the likes of potential strangers on the internet.

    Alas, by introducing this feature, you not only improve the functionality of discord and allow for gaming communities to enhance their operations through it's use, but you extend the use and feasibility for discord across platforms that you may not have originally been targeting.

    Hey guys, don't forget to have your friends (and their friends) upvote this one. Currently it's #17 on the "Account & Server Management" page, so it's unlikely it will be added as long as it's not nearer to the top of votes.

    Looks like Discord is turning a blind eye to this :-(

    First post was about a year ago...

    Hello devs! Can you please work sth out? It’s frustrating that being in different groups, you can only have 1 common avatar. Thanks for looking into this!

    I wholeheartedly agree with this suggestion, please make this happen! I also like Evil Turtle's idea.

    If this doesn't become a thing on discord, I'm going back to Skype... I couldn't agree any more about this... It's so useful...
