    Everytime someone types something in a channel it will send an error in the console and /sc doesnt work at all, otherwise if you just want to use it for channels it works great.

    The Only Reason Why I Am Rating 4 Stars Is Because Staff Chat Doesn't Work, But I Just Just Made A New Channel And Call It Staff To Have Similar Functionality.

    The plugin is almost perfect except I'd love to see a way to get back to Default chat without having to type "/channel Default". Like an alias, maybe "c off" or even "channel off" would be more convenient.

    Well, this is good but needs some improvements.
    bug fix: delete the default channels.
    feature: per channel world exclusions
    feature: per channel reading distances.
    are examples:
    - Distance: world - // for worlds
    - Distance: 300 - // block from world
    feature: clear chat when switching to a channel.
    feature: remember the chat channel, and reload the history when switching between these, even if one is not in the channel.
    improvement: enter the channel staff with the "/ channel Staff" command.

    The plugin is compatible with 1.8 and Essentials,excellent pluggin channel, but needs improvement to love it.
