I think Storms should add the /block command to the server. It configures all available ingots into blocks if they're in your inventory. It would be far less time consuming if he did that. As an addition to that, to turn nuggets into ingots, he should add the /ingot command as well.
Just use the number keys to quickly move items into the crafting grid from your hotbar.
I already do that, the point is using the /block and /ingot command would be so much easier so I don't have to move every sack of ingots to the crafting grid on the crafting table. That takes up so much time.
