Uncheck "default" box on userpic upload form

Short, concise description of the idea
Uncheck the "Make this your default picture" box on editpics.bml

Full description of the idea
Right now, the "Make this your default picture" check box on editpics.bml is checked by default. However, since the majority of people upload more than one picture and use each of them for different types of post/comments, it doesn't make sense to assume that every picture uploaded is intended to replace the former default.

Having to uncheck the box with each upload is a minor annoyance. It's easy to accidentally change your default without meaning to by forgetting to uncheck the box when uploading new pictures. It's also extra hassle for those of us with RSI-type problems. The box should be changed so that it's no longer checked by default.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Removes need to uncheck the box for the majority of userpic uploads

  • Possible sex and champagne offers from people with RSI issues
