Discord allows you to change the avatars for your profile however you want. Now, this is a pretty cool factor is that you don’t have to use your photo if you don’t feel comfortable and you can choose what you like from some of the pre-designed avatars you can get from Discord, or you can upload and crop the photo from your device and also use it as a Discord avatar according to your preferences.
Although you can change avatars as many times as you want and there are no restrictions on this, if you change avatars too many times in a short period, you may get the error saying that you are changing avatars too quickly, please try again later. This can leave you stuck in a difficult situation at times and you definitely need to look for a way to fix it. Here are some things you need to know about the error message and how to get rid of it.
The first thing you should understand is the reason behind this error message. While there is no limit to Discord for updating your avatars, Discord must update the avatar for all of your friends’ devices and all servers you have joined after updating it on your profile. So if you are changing Avatar too fast in a short period of time it can cause confusion with the server and you need to understand that this is not the right way to do it. The app will ask you to wait a bit before trying to change the avatar and you should follow the instructions there.
So, if you have tried to change multiple avatars or have edited the avatar like crop or stuff more than three times in one minute, this will cause the problem and you will be stuck with the error. Let your profile rest for some time. 5 minutes should be enough to fix the problem for you and after 5 minutes you will be able to change your avatar again without getting the error message saying that you are changing the avatar too fast and you should wait before trying to change again the avatar.
2. Plan your avatar before saving
We all know that most of the time the photos are square and the avatars are shown round on the Discord profile. So if you accidentally updated the wrong avatar or didn’t crop it correctly, it will need to be changed and if you edit or crop it too many times, it will trigger the error message saying you are changing your avatar too fast.
To deal with such issues, it would be best if you plan your avatar in advance and only click the save button when you are ready and you feel like you have clipped the perfect avatar to use on your Discord profile. This will ensure that you are perfectly changing the Avatar and that you can use it for some time.
3. Restart your device
If you feel you are seeing this error message due to confusion or bugs, or if you have waited long enough to change the avatar again and are still seeing that message, you should try restarting your device as it will fix any bugs and errors that may cause such problems. Once the device restarts, you will be able to change the Avatar again correctly and this will do the trick for you without you having to face any major problems.
If you’ve also tried restarting and still can’t get over the error. So there is definitely something wrong with the application you are using and you will need to fix it by reinstalling the Discord application on your device. Reinstalling should be for you and you will be able to update the Avatar on Discord as you wish without facing the error.
