What items and materials are important to keep from pre-hard mode for hardmode?

D3WR1T05 asked on reddit: What items and materials are important to keep from pre-hard mode for hardmode?

If you are running out of space in your chest-room, i would recommmend building a bigger one and transfer all your things.
In case you dont know: you can alt-click to favorite things in your inventory. Favourited items cannot be quick-trashed, quick-stacked or deposited. Then you can click the 'loot all' and 'deposit all' buttons when a chest is open to quickly shift your stuff from one chest to another.
A list of things i would definitely keep (not claiming to be complete):
  • Iron (lead) ore: some crafting recipes need iron
  • Wood: some crafting recipes need wood
  • Gold (platinum) ore: boss summoning
  • All plants: potions
  • Fish: potions
  • Seeds: more potions and biome spreading
  • 20 40 Hellfirestone bars: for the last mount you can get
  • Accessoires: maybe you can combine them later
  • Gems: if you want to build something shiny
  • Of course you want to keep your current loadout
  • Everything else
  •  40 Hellstone 
  • 40 Meteorite bars
  • Cobweb/silk
  • Pumpkins
  • all lenses and vertebraes/rotten chunks
Thanks to /u/Incoherrant and /u/i_wanna_be_the_guide for the help making this list.

What did we miss? Tell me :)

Lighting alarm door

DaneTheBeast on reddit asked Is no one using this feature anymore?
In regards of wired torches. I replied:

I use it with colored torches: If the (per pressure plate activated) actuated entrance wall is open, all the red lights are on, so i become alerted to close my base. If everything is closed the lighting switches to normal (in my case blue)

If you have awesome ideas for wired torches, let me know! :)

Red House Update: lockgate & lightswitch. King Slime came to visit. (2m43s)

I finished working on the circuits for lighting and a lock gate door, when i invited King Slime for a cup of tea. But he brought his buddies that were not invited.
They nearly broke my furniture while blobing. So i kicked them all out to show you the Red House lockgate and lightswitch by day and by night.
