Let's go over chests and keys. What they do, how they are used, and how to get them.

Basics
Chests are some of many items you can obtain throughout your experience as an Item Collector. There are nine different types of chest/key combinations.
1. Wooden chest + wooden key
2. Iron chest + iron key
3. Dwarven Mecha chest + dwarven mecha key
4. Thumbs up chest + thumbs up key
5. Fabulous chest + fabulous key
6. Radioactive chest + radioactive key
7. Angelic chest + angelic key
8. Demonic chest + demonic key
9. Crystal chest + crystal key

What are they used for?
The overall purpose of chests and keys for most item collectors are to open them, and redeem the treasures that lay within.

How do I open a chest?
In order to open a chest, you have to combine it with the matching key. "How do I combine them?"
Well, you can combine chests & keys by placing them in the item workshop. (The item workshop can be found on your profile. So if you're ever looking for it, go to your profile, head to the item section, and check the top right corner of the section. It should show "Item Workshop".)
When you access the Item Workshop, browse through your items and find the chest & key. When you find them, click on them, enter the quantity you want to put in, and hit ok. When you have a set of matching chest/keys, hit combine, and bam! You now have opened your chest, and received the items that was inside it.

1. SLOW ITEM LOADING TIME?   
USE 'R' TO RELOAD ITEMS!    
   
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!   
   
   
DON'T RELOAD ITEMS ON ANY BOARD, OR ANY CONTENT! JUST CLICK ON ANY COMMENT # (recommend you click on a comment that has no replies or images/gifs etc.) AND THEN RELOAD!! IT'S MUCH FASTER!!   
   
BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU USE THIS TIP DOESN'T MEAN YOU WILL PICK UP RARES FOR SURE! -YOU.MUST.BE.QUICK-   
   
2. GOT SCAMMED?   
ONLY TRADE WITH TRUSTED USERS!   
   
If you're not sure who is exactly a  "Trusted User", ask around on the board! There are plenty of users that know who to trust.    
   
3. Have fun!    
   
DON'T BE A DICK AND SCAM. It's just a fun game for all of us to enjoy, so collect, combine, and trade. ENJOY!!

If you're not sure what something is worth ask before trading it.

Paras is a scammer, **** Paras.

ffffyou has most items, so if you need to check what you're missing check out his profile.

No rolling on the item board.

Nobody will get a rare for doing this.

Use an isolated comment for collecting items, for example, I made this comment, favorited it, then deleted it. funnyjunk.com/items/973778#items So I can always go back to it, and use it, and it gives me the least amount of lag when I hold down "r" to refresh items

Know what items people are looking for at the time. People right now pay well for Badges, fabric, angelic/demonic ore, corrupt souls, ect. Take advantage of that, and use these common items as practice to speed up your captcha entering time.

If something good pops up, never assume it's gone yet regardless of when you see it, even if you refresh randomly and it's the last item, for all you know there's still time to get it.

Learn what users collect what items. Some people prioritize certain items over others, and may also pay higher for those certain items if you have them.
I would say use me as an example...what with gay and pony items...but honestly, I'm a greedy bitch and don't overpay at all lol.

The Night thread (11pm - 6am for Americans) is the best time to actually PICK UP good items...while they don't drop as often during this time, it's much easier to get a lot of them when they do. Users at this time are usually a lot harder to trade with though, and often pay low

In complete contrast, the day thread (basically 2PM - 11PM for Americans) is the hardest time to actually get the good items, but as a result, users on during the time often overpay for the items they want, since it's harder for them to actually get them themselves.

Don't brag about items you collect.
Don't ask for handouts, you probably won't get anything and are likely to be red thumbed.
Don't spam. It doesn't make the drop rate any higher.
Do be courteous and pleasant with other members, no one likes a douche and most people are pretty cool on the items board.
Do watch out for scammers, there are several out there so be careful.
Do check with the board before accepting a trade, especially if a rare is included.

And finally,
Whatever you do, never, ever, under any circumstances, say it's happening.

Quick Tip (Not sure if this was already said):
If you are trying to pick up an uncommon item (apples, ores, etc.), don't try to rush as if you're trying to pick up a rare. Take your time, and make sure you don't screw up the caption. If you do make a mistake, and get it wrong, try to make sure to get the next one right, so you don't get a one-minute ban, and have the possibility of missing a rare that may drop during your minute ban.

And other information:
1. Click on the caption in order to change it to a different one.
2. If you get two captions wrong in a row, you get a one minute ban, which sucks.
3. Sooner or later, you will get acquainted with items, you will find out which items aren't that important/shouldn't waste your time with. If you see an item that looks unfamiliar/simply pops out, it's most likely a rare/new item, and you should go for it.
4. There's a ton of sarcasm in the thread/false information ("Yeah, you should definitely trade those rares for a potato"), and other things. Though, you can tell if someone's lying/joking around from simply common sense.
5. Don't try to brag and say "(Item) get" when a rare drops, or anything similar to it. You'll bound to get red thumbs, unless you're aiming for that.
6. Don't be afraid to post a question or anything on the board, and if nobody answers your question, just post it again, you'll bound to get an answer eventually. The board gets a lot of comments every minute, and it's likely that your post will get flooded out.
7. Press the "R" key to refresh the comments, and to refresh the items, rather than pressing F5 to refresh the page, or simply clicking on the "Refresh Comments" button. (If you're looking for mostly rares, just hold down "R" or keep pressing it. It's likely that once the rare drops, you'll be able to see it. (Though pay attention, you might end up holding "R", believing you clicked on the item when you do see it, but end up clicking on a different item that dropped right after it.

My strategy: click "refresh comments," then quickly click on an item you want, mouse in dominant hand, non-dominant hand on numpad. Hit enter with your pinky c:
