How to find or contact an owner of an organization?

Solved! Go to Solution.

I'd like to create an organization with a certain name, but that name is taken.

The existing organization is private, and to me seems empty. If it is truely empty I'd like to ask the owner if they would be willing to transfer the org to me.

How would I go about doing something like that? I can't even see who the owner is.

 

Thanks,

Oren

You cannot find this information, only GitHub staff (and organization members) can. You could try contacting the GitHub support team and see whether they can help you.

Hi @orenpai,

 

Thanks for reaching out, we have a name squatting policy. As @seveas mention, contact support and they can determine if the name can be released.

 

Best,
