Avoiding worthless forks on GitHub

Avoiding worthless forks on GitHub:

GitHub is great for finding code and then forking it, however one issue is that there are a significant number of idiots forking projects and then making insignificant formatting changes, maybe they want to see their name up on the web or even claim that they are part of the project (great for job interviews)

So when forking a project you need to ensure you have the actual base project and not some numpties re-fork of a re-fork.
