An option to choose which artist photo will display on our profile

As most people should know, the image voting system is awful on this site. Since we don't know how long the issue of people creating fake accounts to up-vote photos will last, there should be an option for changing which artist photo displays on our profile. 
Like, when a user goes to an artist page and to the photo gallery, in the voting section, there can be a button like: "Pin this on my profile" and that way whenever they appear under top artists, that is the photo you see on your page. Doing this could actually stop people from making fake profiles now that I think about it... If everyone can finally be happy about what artist photo they see, no sense in crazily up-voting photos with multiple accounts.

Secondly, there should be a formula to how votes count, like votes from 5 years ago shouldn't still be as strong as recent votes, the same way popular search results work. For artists who aren't mainstream, the photo gallery is stuck in this rut where new fans are constantly up-voting all the old photos and newly added photos are never seen.

Sorry, I realised there was no 'official' response to this.  To summarise my comments here and elsewhere in this thread, this feature has always been heavily requested by users and is very much under consideration by the product team for the future (i.e. when development resources are less strained than they are currently).  However, given that it's a profile customisation feature, it's quite likely that this feature would be offered as a subscriber perk, so please don't be surprised if that's what happens (more information about that here).
