there's like a miniscule amount of gold in the organics/mob drop chest because i killed a few pigmen
also there is lapis and gold in the special items chest because they are renamed and not intended for normal use
also there is coal in the mob drop chest because i killed a wither skelaton

but i've fixed all that now

the special chest category has a bunch of lapis, gold, emeralds, and other items renamed to a body part. that was a large source of the error you found. however, they're supposed to be for a hospital that hasn't been completed yet, so i haven't counted them (and won't unless you insist).
If they're private chests, they're collective storage and have to be counted.

also on another topic

the collective storage spreadsheet is used to graph what items are available and who gives how much in a poll.
It is also used to graph how many items we have so that we have statistics of our economy.
collective storages are graphed weekly. however, since multiple months ago, there hasn't been a single poll.
so doesn't it seem that recording all item amounts weekly is rather inefficient when we can simply record and post the amount of one item type when a poll comes? i'm nearly 100% sure that i can post how much of a material i have within 3 days, probably yqt1001 and smjjames can too (they're on nearly daily).
It's not really much less efficient to graph it once a week if you just update the page whenever you store or take out items. That was my recommended method. If it's too much you could use the public storage as a buffer for smaller amounts of resources and store the excesses every once in a while. Graphing it once pr. month would also make the statistics sort of messy - months aren't equal in length, and don't start with the same days, so if we had to graph it every 1st day in a month etc., that could be on a weekday where I'm often too busy to do it.

Some 1.5 block changes that Bla might want to add tomorrow:
9 redstone = 1 redstone block
4 single nether brick (smelted from netherrack) = 1 nether brick block (irreversible)
4 single nether quartz = 1 nether quartz block (irreversible)
I've added them all now.

I updated
to make it more clear that by default, all private chests = collective storage chests => you count them in the Google doc. If you want exceptions to that rule you must get my permission.
