How to prevent update of head branch after conflict resolution

Hi there, this is in reference to https://help.github.com/articles/resolving-a-merge-conflict-on-github/, particularly step 8.

Is there a way to prevent the head branch from being updated with the base branch? I do not want to alter the head branch 

Hi @ashmenon,

Thanks for being here! After you’ve created a pull request, you can modify the base branch so that the changes in the pull request are compared against a different branch. Check out this post for more info.

I hope this helps!
