Currently, items in [NA] category are implied to be US releases. The only games where you add a country code on a title is Canada.

You don't have either listed in your list.

Also, Neo Geo and Vectrex have [US] instead of [NA] with no [CA] counterpart.

What about multiple regions for example France and Netherlands? As it should be written [FR][NL] or [FR/NL]. I prefer second option [AA/BB] as it is easier to read.

We don't seem to have a rule for that. I think we've been each doing the different method, I use [FR][NL]. I am the opposite, I think the one I do is easier to read.

@ctracy87, Vectrex [US] and the 3 Neo Geo categories are not in agreement with the rest of the categories. They probably should be changed to [NA] to match.

You could use [BE] for the [FR][NL]. In Belgium they speak both languages, French, Dutch and some German  ;D.

In cases where games get labelled [FR][NL] it is due to flags or countries on the box. So this is a regional release for the appropriate languages, but it doesn't mean that it is a Belgian game.

It was a joke, but it worked better if you where European.

I don't think Belgium has a release to its country because of the different languages spoken there. So they get releases from France, Holland, and Germany.

I dunno, the listing on GameFaqs for South Korean games have it as [KO] They could be wrong though, I have no idea personally.

Well KR is legit the TLD for Republic of Korea (South Korea) besides, we already use [KR] for Korean releases for some games, like this PS2 category:
http://vgcollect.com/browse/ps2kr

KO is the TLD of Kosovo from OpenNIC/New Nations but has no actual designation in the "official" ccTLD list.
