The new dumpster diving that came with the patch gives gems as well, I've even found Tiberium in there. But I have discovered they don't show up as collected in the journal unless you put them on the ground and collect them again.

Small update for all players that plan on getting University Life.

The challenge team formally asks that all players hold off on using any University life content in their dynasties.  If you are receiving the game and want to explore, please do so in a non dynasty file until some rulings have been made about what is allowed and not allowed.   Using content that later becomes banned or restricted may result in a failure/loss of HOF status. 

If you do come across something that should be addressed, don't hesitate to tell the team in a PM or on one of the dynasty threads so they can look into it.   Please don't hold back any information either in an effort to keep it allowable in dynasties.  Eventually we will know all information about the expansion pack but we don't want anyone to have to start over if they don't have to.  Expansion packs are crazy things for those of us who enforce the rules and this one will be no exception.

Just a reminder for anyone who got University Life early.  If the team hasn't said that it's allowed then that means it's not allowed.  Please wait to play your dynasty games until we've had a chance to check them out.   Especially when it comes to placing the new lot types.   You only get one chance to enter Edit Town on pre-existing games.  Don't skip that chance just because we haven't said you could yet.

For the 10 items left behind, can we use items converted by a witch? Say, just the butterflies or metals or some such?

Converted items are not a separate category.   Butterflies and metals are already collectible categories.

Sorry, should have phrased that better. I just wanted to make sure they're allowed under the metal or butterfly category, since they are created. Or are they off limits like the transfiguration table?

About 6 posts above your first one, it's confirmed that conversion ritual = no.

I don't know why someone would want to do this, but after your original couple have had their child, can you move one or the other out of the household?

You could but that person would never ever be allowed into that house or another house as a roommate/housemate/whatever.  Plus you lose the opportunity to kill one of them off for the tombstone requirement.

Aging seems to be broken in my dynasty, I noticed no one's ages (in the household) were going up and then I checked the memories of my heir, it turns out he aged up to YA 21 days ago so it was his birthday, so since I know it's his birthday can I age him up? And then I guess I need to switch towns since aging is broken? Or can I wait a day just to see if moving houses will fix it? And then if I end up moving towns, we just save the household to the bin and buy any house they can afford in any neighborhood, correct?

Have you tried moving them to the clipboard and back into the house to see if that helps?   And yeah if it's been 21 days go ahead and age him up AFTER you've tried the clipboard trick.

Moving them to the clipboard didn't work, so then I guess I'll age him up. When he moves homes, if aging is still screwed up can I just keep track of each of their ages?

I'd rather find a solution than for you to have to do that for the rest of the dynasty.   It would probably be better to use one of your available town moves.
