Discussion on: Do you ever go back and clean up your Github repos?

Do you regularly review and purge your inactive repos?

Yes! Whenever it starts to bother me, I'll go through and delete unused forks, archive old projects, etc.

Is it worth the time investment?

Probably not 😂 but it makes me feel better 🤷‍♀️

Do recruiters expect your GitHub to be easy to navigate?

When I've been on hiring committees, I've mostly paid attention to if there are any pinned repos and look through those. So I'd recommend making sure those are up-to-date/cleaned up a bit 😊
