I saw that link but from what I've been told in other forums they have had issues with spam on this site. They make it so you can;t email other members directly until you have posted x amount of forum post or have had an account long enough to show you have legit intents.
In any case I was thinking about starting a chat room related to the Columbus police scanner. I don't know if anyone would be interested in using it but I thought it would be nice in case you miss the beginning of something and want to be filled in, or look back on the history a little to see what had been going down. I started one at the link below. It's free and I think they have mobile apps as well. If you are interested you can post a link in your stream information page. I'm sure it would take a while for people to pick up on the fact that it's there but hey, what to lose. If you decide on giving it a try let me know and I can send you room admin password. The link and my direct email are below.
