Just do a search & replace on all dats :P

Is there more than one group called Subway? As there are some files where it's abbreviated to SSP and on others written out. Then there's RSi, shouldn't that have an uppercase like TRSI?

According to our knowledge base: ;D

Subway is a scene group not yet confirmed (as in, i still don't have a screenshot of it to make sure it exists).

SSP is an abbreviation used by "Subway & Spreadpoint", a joint group from Subway and Spreadpoint groups, also not yet confirmed (both the group *and* their usage of SSP in any screen).

Spreadpoint is a known group which used "SP" as an abbreviation and is used in TOSEC for that too. All Amiga sets use this abbreviation except:
Kaiser II (1987)(Doerrschuck, Andreas)(de)(PD)[h Spreadpoint]" from Commodore Amiga - Games - Public Domain - [ADF], a set for our new renamer on amiga (Crashdisk) to fix :)
There are also 21 sets published by Spreadpoint, in these cases we tend to use the full name in order to avoid confusions. They are all demos and diskmags.

I think, its not worth to change anything (uppercase, lowercase).
Title screen = KIKstart II
Boxscan = KIKSTART 2
Discscan = KIKSTART II

Some games have an [AMOS] flag, whereas on some others the [AmigaBASIC] one was deleted. Can't we drop that AMOS flag at all? Why is it important to tell everybody that a game was coded with that language?

Indeed, my opinion too(who needs such an info in the filename), but other members here have different opinions.

Is AMOS more important than AmigaBASIC, C, C++, Pascal or asm? Why was AmigaBASIC dropped?

I think it's nice if you want to make an AMOS gamebase for example or an AMOS CD32 compilation, such info might not be usefull for everyone but I'm sure some people out there like it.

I ask because I have a [STOS] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STOS_BASIC) flag in ST demos :P What about people collecting AmigaBASIC software only?
