GIT Fork and Contributions

So I made a fork of a friends package and made edits and then requested a pull.
The changes were made however I did not get listed on the contributors because its a pull from my fork. In the end I just ended up making a manual edit to his read me and i got listed as just a readme editor.

I am wondering is there a way to amend this so my edits show correctly?

Answer

After reviewing your repository your commits are being made under the username "Administrator". So GitHub doesn't know who's who. You want to follow these tutorials on github

1) Setup your username in git-scm

2) Setup your email in git-scm
