    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...

    It's funny, I've been waiting for and following the "progress" of this feature long enough that the first thing I wanted it for has long since come and gone, as has a second reason I wanted it, and now I'm in a third group that I'd like this feature for.

    Yeah, how is it not implemented yet? We join dozens of servers, change our names, so there's no point in using the same avatar for things that are extremely different. Please, guys, it's about time!

    Despite how valuable it is, it would be odd to charge for it, considering that every other multi-group chat app ever made has this feature.

    Throwing my hat into the ring on this one. Having per-server Avatars would be absolutely fantastic from an RP standpoint, but also if you're playing multiple games and want your Avatar to reflect you in-game character, too.

     

    I'm really hoping this is something that you guys @Discord consider!

    This makes so much sense!  I am in multiple Discords, all with different a focus (gaming, RP, social, etc.).  Being able to change a nickname per server is essential to being able to identify myself properly.  Multiple avatars will do the same thing!

    It's basically where you can have different avatars for different servers while keeping your account avatar.

    Very nice suggestion (although discord storage would suffer).

    I like this idea but how would clicking on a user within a server work? Would it just show up to profile pictures? To me I think that would look a bit odd.

    I'm deadass with andanotherwon on this, I've only seen people who love the idea and it would come in infinite handy for gaming, rp, dnd, work, friendsm etc chats. (Especially for rp and dnd though)
