I finished the Show Page Wizard, but my Show Page didn't change!

(or: Why do some episode and show pages look different from others?)
The Blip destination site is carefully curated to offer viewers the best in original web series. While the Blip Dashboard is available to anyone making a web series, the destination site is reserved only for the top 5% of web series. Of the 50,000 original series that use Blip to distribute their content, only 1,800 are available on the Blip destination site.
By default on Blip, all new accounts are given a Basic Show Page. Before a show can be given an Enhanced Show Page, our Content Team must review your show to ensure that it fits with our mission of being the home of the best in high quality, original, episodic web series. This process can take up to 1 to 2 weeks in some cases. Those which we consider to be the best in original web series are given the ability to customize their show page skins, or an Enhanced Show Page. You can help us discover your show by making sure you’ve done the following:
Upload more than just one episode of your series uploaded to your show's account - it can be hard for us to review an entire series based on just one trailer or teaser episode.
Upload high-quality thumbnails for your episodes, or use our Thumbnail Picker to select and create great thumbnails. Either way you are much more likely to pick a great thumbnail than we are to randomly create one for you.
Doing all of these things demonstrates to us that you care about your show and are willing to invest hard work and time to making your show the greatest it can be.
Please keep in mind that all shows on Blip, regardless of their eligibility for the destination site, are still able to harness the power of our advertising program for your show. You'll still get the ability to create custom players to embed on your own site, and you'll still be able to monetize any views within the Blip player. Destination site eligibility in no way affects your ability to earn revenue, embed custom players, or upload episodes.
