I have many troubles finding and getting in contact with people, especially with the variety of time zones playing the game. So here is what I was thinking:

1) We could have an alerts system. Basically, you type in the name of someone you want, and the game will give you an alert message when they come online.

2) Remote hearty-making. You can type something like /hearty username instead of having to be in each other's presence.

3) If you have something you want to say to someone who is offline, you can leave them a message. This would look similar to the crew/flag issues. Obviously, there should be a limit (such as just one message per certain number of hours or something) so that you couldn't spam people.

1 and 3 seem good, but I think the reason they have no /hearty is to keep people from say.../heartying everyone on the island.

The poor complain; they always do. But that's just idle chatter.
Our system brings rewards to all. At least, to all who matter.

The Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates Instant Messenger would do what you suggested and a little more besides.

The /hearty command discussion thread got Davy Jonesed. There will be no remote hearties for now.
