How to avoid error: PR supposed to be on fork instead of original repo?

Hello, wonderful people,

I have a noob question:

When opening a PR to contribute to the codebase for the ‘American to British Translator’, I receive the following standard message: “Looks like this PR was supposed to be made on your own fork, instead of the original boilerplate repository.”

Would anyone be able to explain where I might be going wrong here?

I have followed these steps:

  1. fork the original repo (then open with GitPod and test changes)

  2. locally clone my fork

  3. open local clone directory in VSCode

  4. git remote -v to check that ‘origin’ is my fork on my github and ‘upstream’ is the original repo at github.com/freeCodeCamp/boilerplate-project...

  5. checkout a new branch

  6. make changes

  7. git diff to check changes

  8. git add .

  9. git commit -m ‘message’

  10. git push origin branch-name

  11. open up my github fork on github.com/1jds/boilerplate-project... and press the green 'Compare & Pull Request" button

  12. Step 11 takes me to https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/boilerplate-project-american-british-english-translator/compare/main...1jds:boilerplate-project-american-british-english-translator:fix-updt-var-name-us-brit-trans-project-indx-js?expand=1 So, this is switching to github.com/freeCodeCamp' from 'github.com/1jds

  13. The base repository is: https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/boilerplate-project-american-british-english-translator/compare/freeCodeCamp:boilerplate-project-american-british-english-translator:main...1jds:boilerplate-project-american-british-english-translator:fix-updt-var-name-us-brit-trans-project-indx-js?expand=1

  14. The head repository is: https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/boilerplate-project-american-british-english-translator/compare/main...1jds:boilerplate-project-american-british-english-translator:fix-updt-var-name-us-brit-trans-project-indx-js?expand=1

  1. I complete the form and press “Create pull request”

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
