[Ansteorra] Pay-2-play, Pay-2-fight, Pay-2-whatever...

Many kingdoms require membership to enter competitions, to receive awards
(but not to keep them), and I believe some even require them to play. But
Ansteorra and the majority of other kingdoms do not.

Some clarification if you would please.  Might help in understanding what
exactly the issue is so we can more intelligently comment.

Is this meaning requiring membership for more than just being an officer.
That is to do ANYTHING (enter contests, etc) would require you to be a
member?  I may be incorrect, but my current understanding is that the only
thing that absolutely required you to be a member right now is to be an
officer.  Of course the non members are still "paying to play" now as they
are required to pay a NMS at every event.

An explanation of they mean by this might be helpful.  Are we talking Tier 1
you can go to events, Tier 2 you can enter tourneys and A&S, etc.  Tier 3
you can be an officer?  What exactly are these Tiers?

It may be i am just being slow in not understanding.
