    +1 for this. It’s a bit immersion-breaking to see regular people’s faces in a sci-fi RP chat

    This would be an absolutely fantastic feature! Your profile picture tends to play a lot into how people perceive you on a server, so having the ability to have a different one in different contexts would be wonderful.

    This would be a great feature. I communicate with different groups in different ways. I'd love my avatar to reflect that.

    This would also be great for bots so people who want certiant bots dont have to worry about them having an unrelated profile pic

    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..

    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!

    Yes, please. Different servers naturally deserve different treatments and attitudes.

    Avatars are a reflection of the person you are trying to be, similar to your manner of speech. This means that it is included in another persons perceptions of your own manners. Just like taking the time to say please and thank you is important, while subtle, it is bad manners to be wearing an avatar not appropriate to the server you are in and can subtly inhibit the conversation.

    I have wanted this to be a feature since I started using Discord, as I run some professional and personal servers.

    I can certainly see why it wouldn't be a feature, but it would be great if it was.

    Alternatively, if that's too much, at least let people have a SFW and NSFW avatar like Gravatar lets you have. I've had an annoying history of people with NSFW avatars on my servers, so why not allow a SFW and NSFW avatar for everyone?

    Yes please! I'd love to keep one avatar in most of my servers and have another to match my role in one or two. Maybe each user has one base picture and can override it per server à la Nicknames, except the base is not visible when this is done?

    We seriously need this ASAP!  I've got so many discords where they enforce a strict naming convention and display picture to fit the theme of the group, some to display ranks, some to display your in-game faction or character avatar for RP.

    The sooner we can get this the better!

    This would make my live so much easier. The idea with the default avatar that you can change out on individual servers is pretty good. Please please finally implement this. 
    This seems like such an easy thing to do aswell and if it isn't put it in Nitro, that would be my insentive to buy it!

     

    I 100% sure the request for this already existed in in the old Dreamland design and had over 6000 upvotes and hundreds of comments. One of those upvotes and comments from me. Where is that one?

    Seems like that was deleted couldn't find it anywhere.

    Honestly I'd just be happy if this was a Discord Nitro feature, it'd something I'd pay for.

    This is something that I would love to see happen. As a game dev sometimes I like to join servers of players that play games I work on. I sometimes want to be a part of the community but not be recognized also by my avatar and name. Having the same name and avatar in my support feedback channels discord vs having one as a player and part of community is a vital thing. Many people including my wife also use a face photo for her discord and stream. On things like local and public pokemon trackers for Pokemon Go don’t like the ability to not have a different avatar to prevent social stalking. On another level, while playing other games or other servers some are themed. While in quite love my unique avatar; it doesn’t fit well in an anti-MMO server or rant thread. It also kills the mood when you have a face shot and you're in RP servers.

    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.
