WHY AM I NOT ABLE TO MAKE A PICTURE MY MAIN PHOTO:
Every photo loaded on bdm is a representation of our site. If we would rather that photo not represent us, we "FLAG" it,
so it will NOT appear on the main pages. Because all main photos can be seen on the main pages, a "FLAGGED" photo,
cannot be set as your main. Flagged photos can still be viewed in the member's portfolio.
