Repository forking forever

Hello everyone, 


About 17 days I tried forking a repository of a project I am working on. After I clicked on "Fork this repository", I went to the loading page that says "Please wait a moment while we fork this repository." and since then, whenever I enter the repository, the same screen comes and I can't do anything with that repository. I just want to delete the repositroy but I can't see anything except the loading screen.

Hi @Muaz KADAN,

It looks that the repo creation task failed, and the fork was stuck in 'Creating' mode with 0 data in it. When this happens, the repo can be deleted only by the support team.

I went ahead and removed this fork for you, since it had 0 data, you can try creating a new one now.

Please feel free to let me know if you need anything further.

Kind regards,
