I just got an email from Github support!

Hi Tom,

Thanks for reaching out. Your account was flagged because we received several reports that the following repository:

https://github.com/tomhodgins/UnrealEngine

was being used to spam its over 20,000 watchers.

We've unflagged your account, but we'd appreciate it if you'd check out the activity in your UnrealEngine repository. If we continue to receive abuse reports, we may need to disable access to the repository to prevent additional spam from reaching users.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best,
Elizabeth

@HelloKitty Here, copy and paste this into your browser address bar:
data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<body style=font-size:150pt;line-height:100vh;text-align:center>🤗
Does that help?

Did you use email or the contactus thing on the website?
Tommy Hodgins
@tomhodgins
Jul 27 2016 18:35
the contact page on the website. I sent one last night, and two today (websites down, and later issues commenting on issues on other projects)

Well I sent them another. I sure hope they respond. It would be a pain to have to move everything to Gitlab.
Funny that Gitlab responded on Twitter like 10x faster to that tweet lol.

Hi Victor,

Sorry for the confusion! We've unflagged your account, so you should be all set.

Best,

They just sent that? You account had been reactivated for awhile now. I checked earlier today. I've yet to receive any responses myself.

I hope they make it public again so people can stop asking me why my Github account is 404ing lol.

@HelloKitty a pain? Gitlab makes importing all your repos from Github a single button push! I used Inspect Element to change the text to ‘DO THIS’ and then clicked :D
I have them all here ➳ https://gitlab.com/u/tomhodgins
