re: Thanks. Apparently repos made by restricted users isn't making it on the trending list.
 

My pleasure. About the trending list, it's not only that. I think that the algorithm for the trending repos has been changed, without any update from Github, a week ago I sent them an e-mail to explain what is changed to the community, never got a reply about it.

How I know it? Repositories with 5-10 stars are shown in the list and some of my own repos with 20-30 per day don't. The order of listing is also changed, it doesn't order by the highest to lowest number of stars anymore.

I don't know whats happened after the microsoft's acquisition and I am not even a guy who ever hated Microsoft.

Ξ‘nd now I hear this about users got ban because of a country they are living on. I am really disappointed and angry in the same time.

PR link updated, sorry for the mistake @mjraadi.

I appreciate the support. BTW, it's not based on where you live, it's been confirmed that it's soely based on your nationality.
