As part of a continuing effort to improve the safety of and protect our members, and with the recent events taking place in the gaming community at large, the Nuzlocke Forums staff has decided to shore up our forum rules to prevent any misuse or abuse.

With that in mind, we have added a new rule, now numbered Rule 4, concerning illegal activities, both on and off the forum. In short, if the staff are notified of a potential illegal action that directly threatens the safety of another member, we have a right and indeed an obligation under United States law to investigate, take action, and potentially alert authorities:

4.
Illegal conduct on and off of the forums is not tolerated.

The Staff may, as a result of a report or other probable cause, consider user interactions and content outside of the scope of the community (forums and discord), in order to take action in the case of a severe rules infraction. This type of infraction includes, but is not limited to situations where there is a reasonable suspicion of danger to, or severe harassment of a user. Examples of such conduct which would be considered a severe violation of community rules include violence, threats including death threats, sexual harassment, direct hate speech, grooming, and other illegal activities, as determined by the moderation team on a case by case basis.

If the Staff feels there is any illegal activity taking place outside of the forum and discord servers that threaten or otherwise compromise other member's safety and wellbeing, we reserve the right to investigate any public internal and external communications. We reserve the right to treat any such case as if it occurred on the forums and take action accordingly.

In the event that a user commits an illegal act against another user, the Nuzlocke Forums staff has a legal obligation to investigate and potentially submit evidence to local authorities as required by United States law. This includes any posts, status updates, discord messages, or private conversations between forum members.
We hope to continue keeping the community a safe space for all members.

Edit: punctuation & grammar

One further addendum is also being added, providing additional clarification on staff actions and the distinction between severe cases and personal disputes. This was supposed to be in the original rule change but was missed:

Due to the nature of the infractions which would warrant such investigation as deemed necessary by the Staff, and in the interest of respecting the privacy of community members, the Staff reserves the right to investigate to cases of sufficient severity. What this means is that, for example, the Staff will not intervene in personal disputes between users extending outside of the scope of the forums, if no component of the off-site dispute involves the community (the forum and any official Discord servers), and no user has committed a severe infraction as described above. All reports will be considered seriously.
