How can we improve Discord?

Let Bots Have .gif Avatars

Let's face it, everyone loves Nitro for the emotes and avatars. But let bots have .gifs for avatars as well! Maybe only one bot can have it, but that's one of the coolest features on Discord! Imagine what people could do with it!

    How about allowing bots to have gif avatars only if the developer account has Nitro?

    I don't understand why not. Maybe the person hosting has to have Nitro, but that's a pretty good idea!

    Just think of this as another revenue stream. Nitro for bots might amount to pennies but it increases visibility. I still get users shocked by my GIF avatar and have to teach them what Nitro is. Bots with Nitro would be good advertising.

    Some of Nitro's features should definitely be implemented, for the simple reason that a normal user cannot get the "BOT" designation. Selfbots cannot get it to exploit it.

    Nitro functionality for bots could be extended to more than just animated avatars. Nitro bots could be able to accept friend requests from humans and use voice/video DM functionality.

    It just be a thing you pay for but its for bots and is cheaper because its only the .gif avatar.

    this may be done if they add in the ability to gift nitro, in that you would have to buy nitro for the bot user as well

    I think it should already be this way, when I was setting up my self hosted nadeko I rlly got surprise by the fact that the bot couldnt have a gif avatar even I having nitro

    what a stupid idea, I hope I live long enough to see the day you die of an unnatural cause

    I would love to see the animated avatars feature come to the bots.
    I can understand you wont allow all of our bots to use this feature but maybe only 1 would be enough.
