how could the contributor number of a github project being reduced?

Can it be caused by a contributor deleting his github account or changing his github profile ?

Hi @zz-jason,

Yes, both of those things can affect a list of contributors. That said, I’m totally totally clear on the exact situation you’re talking about. However, in general deleting an account or modifying certain account settings can affect contributor counts and contribution counts. 

If this isn’t quite addressing your concerns, can you provide more details? Thanks!
