Latest Item Database Updates

It's been awhile since we've posted about updates to our Item Database! Below are the major new changes that have been keeping us busy over the past few months:
We're very excited to announced that our Openable Items guide has been completely revamped and incorporated into the Item Database. With this new guide, we've added the ability for an item's contents to show up on their item info page:
And, we also now show the opposite direction--you can see what a particular item can be found inside:
This update isn't just for Neopoint items. We added openable Neocash items to the guide as well, along with the "Inside This Item" and "Found Inside" functionality as seen above!
The new guide is linked from our Article Listing here on our main site, along with the "Content" dropdown in the Item Database.
Classic Neohome Audio
While we continue to update our old Classic Neohome Previews (click through to see if you can help!), we've also been adding audio files to items that will play music when placed into your Classic Neohome. If audio is available, look for a play button next to the item's preview:
You can pull up a list of all Classic Neohome items that have audio by clicking on the "Has Classic Neohome Audio?" option on the search sidebar. (It's under the "More Search Options" link.)
Faerie Quest Requests
After a number of requests, we've added Special Searches for Faerie Quests! Each quest type now has a special search with all of the items requested by that particular faerie. You may use these searches to buy up in advance of opening a Faerie Quest Cookie, or for the annual Faerie Quest Events.
See the "Faerie Quest Lists" section on our Special Searches page for future reference.
Trading Post History Privacy
A small update: we've filtered out petpage links from our Trading Post history wishlists. If we see a link in the format of /~petname, then we'll filter it out for privacy.
Neocash Special Categories
We've gone crazy with special categories! Our Item Database staffers have been hard at work adding new special categories to Neocash items. Here's a full list of the new categories:

Miscellaneous Wishlist Enhancements
Last, but not least, we've also made a few small updates to wishlists:
- In addition to making a private wishlist that only you can see, you may create an "unlisted" wishlist that will only be visible to those you share a direct link with. It won't be listed on the sidebar with your other wishlists. Toggle this option on the "Settings" page for your wishlist.
- By default, we've hidden items marked as obtained on public views of wishlists. This is to make it easier for those wanting to fulfill a wish to see what you still need. You can still see the obtained items by clicking the "Show: Obtained Items" link next to the sorting options.
- We added purple labels to NC wishlists and trade lists on the public views, so that you can easily see what type of list it has been marked as.
- We also added the "Compare NC Lists" button to the top of each NC list for better visibility.
