Recently I linked my Careers profile with Github and I added a project I recently contributed to but am amazed to see a notice which says

Hidden We couldn't find any commits you've made to this project.

But if you see, I do have a commit to this project so why is Careers.SO unable to grab that and how I can fix this?

Your Careers profile actually lists your fork, https://github.com/mr-alien/OpCacheGUI

That fork received its last commit on July 26th https://github.com/mr-alien/OpCacheGUI/commits/master

But your commit appears in the main repository in October https://github.com/PeeHaa/OpCacheGUI/commits?author=mr-alien

So your fork is out of date - it doesn't have your own commit in it!

You can either:

  • re-fork the main repository
  • list the main repository manually (you can add GitHub URLs manually now - as of only a few days ago)

Then we'll be able to see your commit, and the project will be displayed on your profile.

  • Thanks a lot, will check asap

  • How does SE know if its a commit by me. I use my personal address at SE and my work email on Github. Could this be a problem? Commented Dec 6, 2014 at 13:36
  • @ZiyanJunaideen If you're using the same GitHub account it will be picked up.
