Same here. No sour grapes, don’t get me wrong! Just seems like a “still in the running” is totally incongruent with a flat-out R.

Now that Dave has help going through stories, that's not necessarily true. It probably means you made it past Kary's read through, but not past Dave's. There are a lot of stories that get judged each quarter, which is why Dave needs that extra pair of eyes in the first place. Even so, don't let it get you down--I've revised R's into SHMs before. (Never got a finalist out of them, but I've definitely tried.)
