    Personally, I would prefer to be called by my rank and last name, unless I know the person. Maybe its just me, but as a Warrant Officer I would find being called "buddy" quite disrespectful, especially if I dont know the person who is calling me it.

    If someone called me "buddy" then they better hope I don't know them. lol

    Cadet-world is less formal than LHQ's or CSTC's, but...

    I see the cadets on here calling members who are officers "Sir" or "Ma'am" all the time. I also see Chiefs being called "Chief" all the time too, especially between strangers.
    I don't think I've ever seen an officer being called "buddy", and I doubt very much that they would stand for it.
    I don't think senior, or junior cadets should be treated with any less respect, so no, its not just you.


    Out of curiosity, is it common to call Warrant Officers "Warrant" like sea cadets call their CPO's "Chief"? Or is there some other short form maybe?

    By more junior cadets, Warrant Officers are called "sir" or "ma'am," but for equals and superiors, "Warrant" is entirely appropriate.

    My rank is clearly displayed in my signature.

    Would you talk you your Warrant Officers at any cadet events like that?

    Well I can't see why people found it necessary to team up on WO2 Gillis and say she was acting as though she was "Top brass" or a power tripping "General" and that she was "touchy" or "ruining" all the fun for everyone

    Having fun doesn't mean you can't be respectful. If everyone was respectful from the beginning, and let WO2 Gillis and FSGT Patten settle their own disagreement, then everyone would be having fun, and this conversation would have ended a long time ago.

Will you please refer to me by my proper title of Mr. Miller from now on as I am not a cadet or affiliated to any type of military or para military organization. Please explain to me the proper way of addressing you or any other ranked person here so as to not offend.

    I don't think anyone has done this yet so, if not.... Welcome to Cadet-World! What brings you to our little corner of the net?

    Your profile is decidely bare so it would be great if you could tell us a little about yourself and your interest in cadets and C-W.

    If you haven't figured it out already, we're pretty passionate about our organizations around here so you're going to see some heated debates. In the end, though, I think we all agree that the cadet programs are truly amazing.

    Not that my opinion counts, but i figured Id put it in here:
    Not sure why people are hard on for the rules, I know they are there for professionalism, but first off, this is not a personal meeting, and one slip up definitely does not require the flaming this individual has gotten. A simple "please call me warrant (or whatever)" from the person he called "buddy" would have sufficed, but multiple posts from other people, including the first one being QUITE sarcastic...and last time I recall, sarcasm is only meant to hurt...

    Thats just my 2c

    It was a tempest in a teacup and best handled off-list.

    There's been a fair number of minor slights spooling up into major fights lately. I can only think that the winter blahs have hit full-force around here.

    Meet "Tempest" (in a Teacup)...one frustrated little dragon! Designed in shades of salmon, gold and purple, Tempest makes his home in a personalized, flowered china teacup, which, as we all know is not a terribly dignified place for a dragon. Tempest has a bit of a problem being taken seriously, and can only manage steam as opposed to flame...no wonder he's frustrated!

    I googled your quote this is one of many that I found. Is this what you were thinking when you said the winter blah hit full force around here.

    Steve


    edit: Sorry should have read further I found a better definition of the tempest meaning, Big storm in a small space. lol

    Interesting... I guess it would be closer to "much ado about nothing".

    Anyway, I guess you missed my post just previous to that. Howzabout a self-introduction so that we might know you better?

    Will I get a pair ... maybe one day, when I no longer have a choice.
    Wait until you meet my flag party commander😂 he was sick of all the cadets complaining about how impossible they are to shine and took the challenge, they are almost as shiny as his parade boots and his parade boots are the best in the squadron, so good that the CO played him 60$ to shine his
