Consolidate "I Wanna Be The Guy" Fangame categories
For years, the "I Wanna Be The Guy" category on Twitch has been the main hub for the original game along with its 10k+ fangames. There have been increasingly more categories added to Twitch for various fangames, and it only stands to divide the category for an already relatively small community.
I would like to request that the "I Wanna Be the Guy" category is renamed to "I Wanna Be The Guy + Fangames" and that the following games be removed from Twitch (and the followers migrated to the new category if possible):
I Wanna Be The Boshy
I Wanna Kill The Kamilia 3
I Wanna Be The Guy: Gaiden
I Wanna Be the Co-op
I Wanna be The Justice Guy
I Wanna Run the Marathon
I Wanna Kill The Guy
I Wanna Take the Time Machine
I have already gotten direct permission from Kayin, the maker of "I Wanna Be The Guy," for any changes to be made for the betterment of the community.
As a longtime member of this niche but passionate community on Twitch, we would really appreciate this rename to include "+ Fangames" and the consolidation if possible! :)
please do that

Any reasons these games should be considered separate would be based on minutiae appreciated by a relatively select few.
noting that I do not consider "popularity" to be a valid factor.
This would be highly reasonable considering I Wanna Be The Guy is the original title, whilst the others are fanmade productions whose categories are rarely used in the first place.
This is similar to the issue in which the Touhou community generally uses Touhou Project as their own Hub category, allowing them to address a wider audience and attraction by not spreading out their fanmade productions into hundreds of unused categories. They submitted a UserVoice which was accepted and handled by Twitch on the same exact reasoning as this submission, so approval should be expected.
I second this :)
Maybe specific games that are integrated into the steam store should still be separate since people finding these games may be unaware of the main game and its Fangames. Just my 2 cents
