I've got a repo that I contribute to within an Organization that I administer. I'm trying to add it to careers, but it won't allow it. Is this on purpose? I don't really want to fork it to my personal account, since I won't be maintaining it from there.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This might have been more appropriate to post to Meta Stack Exchange...but I'm not sure. – user163250 Jul 1 '14 at 1:01
@Cupcake is correct, MSE is the meta site for Careers. – Shadow Wizard Jul 1 '14 at 9:23
@ShadowWizard shouldn't we burninate the careers tag on MSO then? – user163250 Jul 1 '14 at 13:35
@Cupcake no, it's still useful for the careers team to come have a look and migrate to MSE if needed. :) – Shadow Wizard Jul 1 '14 at 13:59

If you're a public member of a Github organization, you can add projects from it.

But if your membership of the organization is not public, we won't be able to see that you're a member.

You can change your visibility from the organization admin page on Github.

Ah, I had no idea I was private by default. Good to know. – Chase Florell Jul 1 '14 at 15:51
FYI, if you are not an organization admin, to make your membership public go to the organization's page, people, and in your profile's show click "make public". – Filly Aug 4 '14 at 22:53
