Hanson.net Pin Guide

By | July 16, 2020

Since the site’s relaunch in 2014, Hanson.net members have had the opportunity to get “pins” – similar to video game achievements, members have the opportunity to “level up” and get exclusive pins on the website based on different actions taken on the website or events attended in real life.  With the 2020 re-relaunch we decided to make a guide of all the pins and how to obtain them.

Please note that the Hanson.net Tech team is still working on pins since the re-relaunch so some pins that should be available may not be able to be obtained at this time.

We are missing 2020 versions of the 2017 Hansonopoly Bronze, Silver and Gold pins. If anyone knows of a profile with these pins, please send them to blog@hansonstage.com so we can get them included.

Pins with “Levels” associated with them will change colors depending on which level the user is at: Yellow (1), Orange (5), Pink (10), Purple (25), Blue(50), Yellow Border(100), Orange Border(250), Pink Border(500), Purple Border(750), Blue Border(1000), Yellow Fill (1440), Orange Fill (2500), Pink Fill(5000), Purple Fill (10000)
