Chanfix is a service found on some IRC networks that will keep track of the channel operators and will try to make sure there is at least one person with operator status per channel. If there are no users with operator status on a channel, the chanfix will consider the current users and decide if it should give operator status to some of them. Chanfix services have certain limitations. For example, a channel needs to be active for a specific number of days, or have a certain minimum amount of users, if users are to be eligible for operator status. Also, those users may need to have had operator status in the channel previously, for a specific amount of time, to be eligible for promotion to operator.
