Combine the 5 Phantasy Star Online categories
The following titles are the original and ports/expansions of the same game:
* Phantasy Star Online
* Phantasy Star Online ver. 2 (expansion--note this is different than Phantasy Star Online 2 which is a different game and should be separate)
* Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II (port + expansion)
* Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II Plus (essentially just a patch!)
* Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst (port + expansion)
I and a few other PSO streamers realized how many fellow streamers of this game we were never aware of because there are streams in each of these categories, so combining them seems like a good idea so that our little community doesn't have to follow 5 versions. I believe other games (such as Pokémon flavors in the same generation, StarCraft II, etc.) have been combined before.
Thank you for your feedback! These games have been merged together.

I'm all for it
I'm for it. It always kinda felt clunky for such a small overarching community to have an upwards of 5 or more different sections that each person has to follow to find each creator or streamer. Merging them would be best for sure and would allow each individual streamer and server to feel like they are helping to contribute to the overall growth of the bigger community.
That would make a lot of sense.
This is a great idea, I sometimes see some streamers playing Blue Burst under episode 1-2 as their title. two completely different versions of the game but everything should be combined Its my current problem with Schthack and Sylverant for the GC Servers. There is no need to split a community, Its hard for a community like that to grow. Phantasy Star Online should be One Catagory, One Community.
Please! This definitely should be done! Without a doubt!
A handful of game titles really need this to be done, the differences are negligible enough, definitely support.
Supported, as it stands now some streamers have to consciously lie about which format they are playing on to avoid being missed on category searches.
This would be a great idea for the community.
Massively support this idea. While there are some differences between versions of PSO, I don't believe they are disparate enough to warrant so many categories. I wish a merger would have happened sooner to be honest.
I would love this as well.
I think that combining all these categories into "Phantasy Star Online" would be a good idea.
