Messaging app Discord announced today that subscribers with the premium Nitro tier can now use a different avatar on each of their servers. The option to ‘change nickname’ in the app has been changed to ‘edit server profile’. That’s where you can change both your nickname and server avatar, so if you’re using multiple servers – as many Discord users do – you can keep each identity separate and unique.
Discord also announced today that they are beginning to roll out scheduled events, allowing users to plan ahead, giving them time to spread awareness and participate. The company says more communities are using podium channels to connect with members, in AMAs, open mic events or other large-scale discussions.
Scheduled Events in Discord allow users to create an event with a topic name for a future date, allow members to comment — who then notify them when the event starts — and create an invite link for a specific event. Members can also browse a list of upcoming events on a server. The scheduled events feature is available on desktop, iOS, and Android, and there are no time limits on how far ahead moderators and admins can schedule events, but there is a limit of 100 total events at a time.
