You cant know if someone forks your post. But you shouldnt worry that someone copies your code and publishes it, its very easy to know if a code is copied or not.

Also many people fork repls to get a better understanding of coding and learning new things; they can go through the code, edit it, change stuff, and will become a better coder ;). Thats why repl.it allows users to always be able to fork any repl.

and if they fork a repl, remember that this is making a copy of the original, so your own code wont be deleted.

If you really dont want people to copy your code, you can always make a repl private (no one can see it) but thats only if you have hacker plan.

Happy coding and hope this helps! =)

Hi,
If someone forked or reposted your post then you should immediately report it, if you find who has reposted it as it's against the laws of Repl.it.

If someone forked your Repl, then no need worry as Repl.it knowingly gave that feature, So that other people may also benefit from your code as the reasons for that is for them to learn or edit or make a new thing from your code.
If you are that interested in making your Repl Secure then you have to check Hacker Plan. It has this type of feature and more
Check this website to know more about Hacker Plan
Thanks
Hope this helps

Hi! I don't quite know what you mean by someone forking your post. Do you mean reposting? Reposting is against the rules, however, you can't know directly. If you ever find one, report it immediately. Its no fun having your posts get stolen :(
