Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Here's what worked for me:

Used Internet Explorer 11 (version 11.309.16299.0) after failing multiple times while using Chrome.

  • Went to "Epic Account" page -> then "Connected Accounts" page

  • Cleared "GitHub Account Name" box (I clicked inside the box, then clicked the "X" that appeared)

  • Clicked "Save Changes" button

  • Refreshed page (to ensure the connected GitHub account name was properly cleared)

  • I typed in my GitHub account name into box (didn't copy & paste!!!)

  • Finally, I clicked "Save Changes"


After that, I received the proper invitation email nearly instantly!

My best guess would be that either the switch to Internet Explorer OR the typing of my account name by hand (INSTEAD of copying & pasting the account name) is what fixed the problem for me.

(also seems capitalization on GitHub account name does matter, but clicking Save Changes will then change it to all lower-case... this DOESN'T matter and it only matters if you get an error saying that the GitHub account name doesn't exist when you click "Save Changes")

I've had it work on two separate accounts that I was having issues with! (initially created a second set of Epic & GitHub accounts after the first accounts didn't work)

I hope this works for everyone else having issues, best of luck!
