Regarding power points for dead fixes

I think it's a bad mechanic to not give power points when you fix dead videos if your own power points have recharged recently. I wanted to earn one now, so that I could frontpage berticus' earthquake talk post ( http://humanitarian.videosift.com/talk/Earthquake ), but I couldn't.

This is bad.

It tells me to not go and fix videos, but wait until I get something back for it.

It is foolish to expect users, especially gamers, to do something like this, essentially a chore, for "free" for the good of the community, we might as well give people incentives to do it.

It may be ripe for abuse, since we can earn lots and lots of points in a row potentially, but isn't that worth it? If someone fixes 100 videos, then they've earned those 100 power points - and the community wins, because 100 less videos are dead.
