27 - heroChat is not specific about not being able to speak into a channel

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Start server running HeroChat
2. Join a world-restricted channel
3. Change worlds
4. Attempt to chat.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
At minimum, I would think the error would be explained, but all I see is "HeroChat: Insufficient permission". I almost filed a ticket saying HeroChat thought I was trying to use commands before I realized what was actually happening. A good solution to this problem would be to switch focus automatically to a channel I do have permission for (and tell me, of course).

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?

    This would be great. IT would add so much functionality

    Hi, I'd like to plus 1 j2ther's comment.  It would be very much ideal if I could configure things so that players changed focus when changing worlds.

    I'll consider saving per-world active channels in the future.

    I wouldn't called this a defect, as so much of a feature request. For us when someone tries to talk in a world restricted channel it says "Herochat: Channel not available in this world", which is pretty clear to myself and so far my users and works out great for us.

    I do think a nice feature request though would be the option to auto-change focus when you change worlds. So if your changing from your survival world to your creative world, your channels focus would automatically be set to the creative channel.
