I created a palette, why doesn’t it show up on Color Hunt’s homepage?

Color Hunt is open, but is also curated. It means that all the palettes are hand-picked by Color Hunt’s curators. Each submission of a color palette is being reviewed to make sure it fits the collection’s goals. Each day, the very best submission is being picked up and will be visible on the homepage in the day after.
