The departure controller told me for future reference that it was an RNAV departure and the rest of his explanation I couldn't quite understand. However after looking up RNAV departures it turned out an RNAV departure seemed to be a SID departure. This got my confused as I was following the SID I was cleared for in my IFR clearance at the time. I think a possibility is that there was a miscommunication on my part. As I was departing I greeted the departure controller with a standard "Climbing through" "Inbound waypoint" greeting, however after looking at some other Vatsim videos I saw some people said things like "Climbing via SID". Was a miscommunication on my part like that possibly the issue which might have caused the departure controller to not know I was following a SID or is there a part of RNAV departures I may have missed?
