How do I get rid of projects and repositories that are not mine ?

A long long time ago, in a galaxy far far away a third party developer transferred me the job he had done using his bitbucket account. He created a group and a project, added a bunch of separate repositories and added me to the group.

With his code in my machine I changed it according to my company's rules and created a single new repository (in my name, no project) and removed myself from the group he had created.

Since then, everytime I open bitbucket, the old project and its 14 separate repositories show up on my screen. It is annoying because I always have to waste time looking for my actual job in the middle of now meaningless directories.

As I'm not anymore part of the group, the "configuration" option is not shown when I select the project, the group or any of the old repositories. How do I get rid of them ?

Hi Alexandre! Can you give us a few names for these repositories so we can have a look?

Also, can you send us a screenshot so we can see where these repositories appear? 

Kind regards,

I have the exact same problem. A few years ago someone added me to a couple of their repositories, and nothing came of it. There is no way I can reach them, and I would like these repositories removed from my Bitbucket. Thanks!
