If you do not go to main dining room for dinner, do you tip the wait staff at the buffet? We missed our early dinner one time and went to informal buffet at windjammer and did not know if we should have tipped or not.

You don't tip them individually (though I'm sure if you were to tip a few specific people who work there whose service you especially appreciated, they would love it!) It depends on how the cruise line wants to handle it; some tips that are automatically charged to your account are pooled among the staff, but in most cases I believe they are still distributed to those who traditionally received them directly from the passengers - namely, dining room servers, and cabin stewards. Bar staff also receive tips, as those are added automatically to all bar bills onboard.
