[Discord Nitro] Make GIF autoplay
So we don't have to move cursor at profile

You'd be taking a performance hit by having that enabled, especially if you're in a room with a lot of people with animated avatars. If this is implemented, users need to have the option to turn it off. In all honesty, though, it just sounds like it'd be an annoying distraction in the interface rather than a useful feature.
that would be aids
I think that would be really annoying to see all avatars moving and that would require a lot of performance for the pc.
Please do so so that GIF avatars are played constantly so you do not have to point the mouse at the text and the image
I agree that it would be a good idea, and having a simple option to keep it as it currently is would take care of people who don’t want the change.
I say make it a option in settings, for those people who dont have good internet or use mobile data they can turn off autoplay.
yes I agree
Emm... I'm here...
Do so that you can manage gif, time interval
I would rather it stay as it is -_-
would be nice, but would take a lot of mobile data to render all avatars in a server and make them move accordingly.
Also loading times on servers would be longer as it has to render everyone's avatar, for example the Discord Nitro server would be unusable.
the only problem for me is that if i watch a gif for to long it will make me sick so i think it would be better if there is a way to turn it off

It would be nice if the GIF in a Nitro User's avatar was constantly animated (both in the Member list and the message line), not only when one hovers their cursor over it.
Make the gif play constantly everywhere it is shown. In the voice channels list, in the online/offline list and in the chat.
Should have a toggle, and the gif should stop autoplaying when it scrolls off the page/out of view, like facebook messenger.
Also this should work with avatars too.
this option would not work with me by default, when discord looks at gifs for too long it can crash my client!
Sure, whatever, but have an option and let it be disabled by default.

Please allow us to choose whether or not GIFs autoplay.
I like this idea but only if it's a toggle so people can have it on or off, and server default on/off.
God no. I wish I could turn it off entirely.
