A good resource to check out is the HELP/FAQ section under the Main Menu of Bakery Story.
What is a Storm8 ID and why do I need it?
Basically, it's a way to identify yourself within any of the Storm8 franchise of games. With one user-name, you can play in any of the social games that fall under the Storm8 platform.
Can I change my Storm8 ID?
No - so make an ID that you like that won't be embarrassing later on.
How do I receive gifts?
In order to receive gifts, you need to have neighbors. Users have the option to send a gift daily to their neighbors.
Is there a limit of gifts I can receive?
There is an upper limit of 20 gifts per day. In order to make sure you get 20 gifts daily, it is advised to have a minimum of 40 neighbors since there is no guarantee that each neighbor will send out a gift daily. In essence, the more neighbors, the better!
There is no limit on how many neighbors you can send a gift to. The only limit is one gift to a neighbor per day.
How do I add neighbors?
Under "Social", go to the "Invite Friends" tab. There you have to manually enter in another user's Storm8 ID. Often, people who visit your bakery will post their Storm8 ID onto your wall so check it out from time to time. You can also provide your Storm8 ID to others by posting it onto their wall - once they add you, you will gain a neighbor. Also, posting your Storm8 ID onto another player's wall will allow others to add you through your post It's an effective way to gain neighbors.
How do I find out how many more XPs I need to proceed to the next level?
Under the "Messages" section, press the "Profile" tab. There you will see profile information including your bakery name, # of XPs to next level, social status level, # of neighbors, and restaurant rating.
Should I sell or store excess furniture, appliances, and other accessories?
Given that you only receive a fraction of the coins it costs to buy the excess item in the first place, it is advised that you store away any extra items just in case you might want to use it in the future.
