i am somewhat new to this game playing it for maybe a month/month and a half. i have reached level 51. i have 4 friends that play the game, but 3 of them have abandoned stations and 2 of them are below level 8. i realize i get 'credit' for visiting them. i do have some questions however pertaining to getting 'stronger' in the game. first of is my station. i believe that i have almost everything i can but for it (without deleting myself of gems (i have 237). do i hold onto then for as long as i can until i can purchase new ones? also ..... all this material i am collecting. what do i do with it all?
