I have added a README file to the root of a public repository with the same name as my username (panchalamitr), that README should automatically appear on my profile page(panchalamitr (Amit Panchal) · GitHub) but it is not showing. can any one help me what will be the issue with that.
It looks as though that repository wasn’t created initially as a profile repository, and it’s possible a number of changes may have thrown it off.
Personally I would try
- rename this repository something else to free up the repository name
- create a new repository with the correct repository name and initialised with a README.md
If that README shows up on your profile, then you can work away in that repository customising it.
