I have a couple SIMPLE ideas that would help quite a lot.
A tag that tells you what type of item you loot.
Like if you loot some clothes it will say: Hazmat Mask (Mask) x1
Or even: Smasheroid (Opulence) x100
And a slot when you look at worlds that shows worlds which your protectors or teleporters are in.
I'm pretty sure TONS of people have lost protectors and items like this.
