And when I commit via Pycharm the username of the person who commited is ‘SomeonesMasterPassword’. See Commits · Ben-Garcia-Data/AllTheatreJobs · GitHub
I think this started after I used Git Bash to remove a file from the repo history after I accidently uploaded credentials in a config file. I also recently changed by GitHub username. Now whenever I commit via Pycharm ‘SomeonesMasterPassword’ is credited with the commit. As someone who is trying to populate my Github with commits to show recruiters that I actually know how to program, that’s quite annoying. I cannot find any advice on this and I have no idea if this is a Pycharm or Github issue.
I can commit directly on github(dot)com (See updates to the readme) and I get the credit.
Happy to clarify anything or add any info if something isn’t clear. Thank for help#
Done a bit more testing. I can choose who ‘authors’ the commit. Pycharm appears to think there’s an account called SomeonesMasterPassword and it shows one of my emails. I don’t remember ever creating that account but maybe I did. I certainly have no idea how Pycharm has found it. I cannot find any record of that account inside Pycharm other than the commit options.
I tried resetting the password of the supposed account (can’t guess the password) and GitHub says the account doesn’t exist. Bugger.
