Had an image accepted this morning but in the notification it identified the 'soft' rejection reason. It was a pretty unique image taken at MAN - if I remember correctly, sometimes if an image is borderline but unusual or aesthetically-pleasing, it is accepted but with a small guidance note such as the one I got. Is it just a polite note to say, "It nearly didn't make it chief but we like it"? A tip for future reference? Or has something gone wrong during this morning of site bugs?
