Yet another update to this thread.

Today SSG added an instant verification system on credit cards when you make a transaction from the store, replacing the old system that took 2-3 days to process your transaction. This is a really good change as it fixes the fraudulent system in place that allowed people to put exploited keys, AoV, etc. into the in-game market.

As crazy as this thread has been, at least two good changes came about after it was created.
